U.S. top court temporarily upholds Trump's refugee ban

Trump Asks US Supreme Court to Restore Refugee Travel Ban

Kennedy granted a request from Trump administration lawyers Monday and temporarily blocked a 9th Circuit Court order that would have allowed more refugees to enter this country from six majority-Muslim nations. 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 Justice Department wants to stay part of the appellate decision that said refugees should be allowed to enter if they have formal assurances from resettlement agencies that they will provide services when the refugees arrive.

The ruling would have taken affect on Tuesday, reopening the door to 24,000 people left in limbo by President Donald Trump's on-again off-again travel ban.

The debates here, now before the Supreme Court, have centered around what constitutes such a "bona fide relationship".

Last week, a federal appeals court panel weighed in, deciding that the administration could block neither grandparents nor refugees with assurances. Not only is the department now battling over an injunction on a policy that likely expires in two weeks, but its opening brief before the Supreme Court didn't even address the issue.

Permitting the ban to expire would let the administration save face while avoiding the risk of a damaging Supreme Court decision that could not only strike down the order but also place lasting constraints on presidential power over immigration and national security.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit had said its ruling allowing refugees with resettlement agreements would take effect Tuesday, which Wall asserted could be disruptive.

The justices are scheduled to hear arguments October 10 on a pair of cases related to the ban.

The filing marked the latest twist in the ongoing legal fight over Trump's sweeping March 6 executive order that barred travelers from Iran, Syria, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen for 90 days, a move Trump argued was needed to prevent terrorist attacks. Last week, the 9th Circuit said that grandparents are close relatives and therefore - according to an earlier Supreme Court order - may not be denied entry under the disputed travel ban.
