Trump travel ban: US supreme court partially lifts block on order

The US supreme court handed a partial victory to the Trump administration on Monday as it lifted significant elements of lower court orders blocking the president’s controversial travel ban targeting visa applicants from six Muslim-majority countries.

If I remember correctly, the first travel ban, meant to last 90 days, was issued in January to gain time to allow new immigration vetting procedures to come into force. It was blocked by courts. The next travel ban, again for 90 days, was introduced in March. It was blocked again, and part of that block has now been lifted.

The administration had - despite there being no travel ban - far more than 90 days since January to introduce new immigration vetting procedures. Did they? And if they didn't, did they at least say anything about what better procedures that are supposed to be? Did anybody at least talk about immigration vetting procedures?
