HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii Attorney General Doug Chin says the important thing about the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on President Donald Trump’s travel ban is that it won’t go into effect for people with a “bona fide” connection to the United States.

Chin said Monday that means University of Hawaii students and family members of U.S. citizens may still enter the country.

Hawaii sued in March to stop the travel ban, arguing immigration shouldn’t be restricted by religion or national origin.

The nation’s highest court says it will allow a limited version of Trump’s ban on travel from six mostly Muslim countries take effect. The ban can be enforced if visitors lack a “credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States.”
