US Supreme Court restores Trump's travel ban on refugees

Muslim Ban Protest Stylized

The Supreme Court justices, on Tuesday, granted a request from the Trump administration to block a lower court decision that would have eased the restrictive refugee policy and, according to the Justice Department, allowed up to 24,000 additional refugees to enter the United States before October.

The travel ban, which blocks travelers Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the US for 90 days following its implementation, has been the subject of much legal wrangling, and now no fewer than three orders from the Supreme Court.

The U.S. Supreme Court allowed President Trump to broadly implement a ban on refugees around the world from entering the country.

. The justices are scheduled to hear arguments on October 10 on the legality of the travel ban from six Muslim-majority countries and refugees anywhere in the world.

The justices exempted those with a "credible claim of a bona fide relationship" to a United States person or entity from the refugee ban, which affects those from anywhere in the world, and the 90-day travel ban from six Muslim-majority countries. In a one-paragraph decision, the Supreme Court denied a stay relating to the government's interpretation of "close familial relationship", but granted the stay as it related to refugees, leaving that up to the Ninth Circuit to decide. The affected countries are Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

In response, the state of Hawaii, which is challenging the entry ban, told the Supreme Court that the government's argument made no sense. The Supreme Court agreed to review whether the whole matter is moot, given that Mr Trump's order in March (which didn't take effect until June) may technically have expired over the summer.

The order was not the court's last word on the travel policy that Trump first rolled out in January. That ruling is now stayed pending further action by the high court. The justices, however, didn't define the relationships more precisely.

The appeals court said the government offered no persuasive reason for making that distinction.

After a series of court defeats for Trump's proposed travel ban, the Supreme Court in June said parts of it could go into effect pending the outcome of the broader case.

The government had repeatedly argued that merely possessing such an assurance of resettlement does not give those refugees a sufficient link to this country to enable them to enter.
