Justice Kennedy reinstates Trump's refugee ban

US Supreme Court accepted the Trump administration's emergency petition to stay a ruling by the San Francisco Appeals Court that would have allowed thousands of refugees already in the pipeline to come to the United States despite the ban

The Supreme Court agreed Monday to uphold President Donald Trump's executive order banning refugees from entering the US, hours before it was set to be upended, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

US officials can at least temporarily continue to block refugees with formal assurances from resettlement agencies from entering the United States after the Supreme Court intervened again Monday to save a piece of President Donald Trump's travel ban.

Although Trump initially coupled this refugee ban with his broader Muslim Ban, Kennedy's order still leaves several previous court decisions limiting the Muslim Ban in place.

The Justice Department asked the Supreme Court to step in again - though only to block refugees, not grandparents and other extended family members. The appellate ruling could take effect as soon as Tuesday and could apply to up to 24,000 refugees. Wall said the administration has already been allowing in close family members, but allowing in the refugees would "upend the status quo and do far greater harm to the national interest".

The Supreme Court temporarily reinstated a partial version of Mr Trump's beleaguered ban in June, pending a final decision in October.

Trump Admin Asks Supreme Court to Block Ruling That Allows More Refugees

Monday, the Justice Department requested a stay of the 9th Circuit's most recent interpretation of Trump's executive travel order.

The top justices of the country will sit for a hearing to discuss if the ban was legal or not.

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

By that point, the original 90-day travel ban will have lapsed and the 120-day refugee ban - with certain allowances by the Trump administration for special cases - will have just a few weeks to run.

The 9th Circuit upheld a decision by U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson on refugees with resettlement assurances that had been stayed by the U.S. Supreme Court pending the appeal. The ruling made by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals last week prevented the government from blocking admission to the U.S. for those refugees who are in the U.S. Admissions Program or have formal assurances from a resettlement agency, The Hill reported.
