Supreme Court issues temporary refugee ban order

Trump Asks US Supreme Court to Restore Refugee Travel Ban Trump Admin Asks Supreme Court to Block Ruling That Allows More Refugees

The Justice Department on Monday asked the Supreme Court to stop part of an appeals court ruling from going into effect that would limit enforcement of President Trump's refugee ban. Such a relationship can arise from a close family member in the United States, or from something like a job offer from an American company or an offer of admission to an American university. The ruling would have allowed refugees to enter the country if they obtained promises of assistance from refugee resettlement organisations.

In Monday's court filing, the department said the 9th Circuit's decision on the refugee ban "will disrupt the status quo and frustrate orderly implementation of the order's refugee provisions".

That put the broader legal challenges to the travel ban - which halts all refugees and travelers from six mostly Muslim countries - off until an expected Supreme Court review on October 10.

The arguments hinged on a stipulation in the travel ban that refugees in the pipeline can only be accepted if they have a "bona fide relationship" with a USA individual or entity. The court also said that the government could not block the immigration of grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other extended family members.

The Trump administration said it should not, meaning such refugees would be barred.

The Supreme Court allowed parts of Trump's executive order to take effect in June while saying those who have a "credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States" should be exempted.

The Justice Department's high court filing Monday follows an appeals court ruling last week that would allow refugees to enter the United States if a resettlement agency in the US had agreed to accept their case.

The six countries included in the general travel ban are Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Sudan and Yemen.

The administration told the court Monday said that changing the way it enforces the policy on refugees would allow "admission of refugees who have no connection to the United States independent of the refugee-admission process itself". The appeals court ruled that grandparents and cousins of people already in the US can't be excluded from the country under the travel ban.
