US Supreme Court allows Donald Trump administration ban on most refugees

US Supreme Court allows Donald Trump administration ban on most refugees

The administration also decided that only refugees who have a personal relationship with a USA citizen or organization should be allowed to enter.

The Supreme Court handed President Trump a temporary victory Tuesday, blocking a lower court decision that would have greatly expanded the number of refugees exempted from his controversial travel ban.

Justices will have to examine whether the travel ban discriminates against Muslims in violation of the U.S. Constitution, as lower courts previously ruled. This Supreme Court decision does not overturn the ruling made by the federal appeals court, but rather freezes it.

The ban on refugees originally came as part of Trump's January executive order barring travel for people attempting to enter the US from seven Muslim-majority nations. The high court's unsigned, one-sentence order agreed with the administration, at least for now. And on October 10th, the Delphic justices will give us some sense of their thinking when the oral argument transpires in Trump v International Refugee Assistance Project. Monday's Supreme Court order said it would keep the appeals court ruling on hold until it decides what to do after receiving a response from groups challenging the restriction. They said Mr Trump's sweeping ban on refugees (though not its anti-grandma policy) could go into effect pending review by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

"The Supreme Court today has dealt yet another devastating blow to vulnerable people who were on the cusp of obtaining safety for themselves and their families", she said.

Judge Watson, a leftwing appointee made by Barack Obama, said refugees working with resettlement agencies in the US are considered to have a "close" relationship and must be admitted. If he lets the bans dissolve on their own, the Supreme Court might be happy to cancel their October 10th affair and let the order meet its end with a whimper, rather than a bang.

The attorneys general of California, Maine, Maryland and Minnesota filed a joint lawsuit at a federal court in northern California, following a similar decision last week by a coalition of 15 states as well as the District of Colombia that houses the capital Washington.

On the other hand, the court said, relationships formed for the objective of evading the travel ban did not count.
