The revised Muslim ban (why call it anything else?) allows some family members but not grandparents or engaged partners. I can imagine that the exclusion of fiance(e)s is based on the stereotype of marriages of convenience being arranged just for immigration or citizenship purposes. I cannot figure out the grandparent thing at all. Lexington is almost 30% Asian (all categories of Asian), and a fair number of those people are pretty clearly here to be with their children and grandchildren, including a neighbor two doors down from us, who came from India. The Saturday morning bus I ride has a bunch of grandparent-aged people heading toward Chinatown (which I can tell because of the shopping bags I sometimes see on the way home in the afternoon). Many people in the US (not just Lexington) depend on grandparents for childcare. What were the Supremes thinking?
