The U.S. President Donald Trump suffered another blow in his tussle with the judiciary after a judge in Hawaii ruled that grandparents and other relatives of people living the U.S. cannot be barred from entering the country.

District Judge Derrick Watson rapped the Trump administration for narrowly interpreting a Supreme Court ruling and applying an “unduly restrictive” definition of “close relative,” writes the BBC.

The ruling could have a far-reaching impact on the way the temporary ban on travelers from six Muslim-majority countries is implemented in the future, notes Reuters. For now, America’s doors are open for refugees until the Supreme Court makes a final decision in October.
