Supreme Court allows Trump admin to block refugees with formal assurances

US Supreme Court keeps tight refugee ban in place

The Supreme Court granted the Trump administration's request to put part of a lower court's decision about the so-called travel ban on hold.

Trump tried twice to instate a travel ban preventing refugees as well as citizens from several Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.

It is, however, notable that the Trump administration has declined to challenge a recent 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that blocked Trump's ban from barring grandparents, cousins, and other close relatives from the country.

For now, the only definite meaning of Tuesday evening's order is that the 24,000 foreign nationals seeking to enter the U.S.to live, with refugee status, will be kept out for now and will remain in a state of legal uncertainty until the Justices take further action.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday maintained the strict ruling of President Trump's travel ban in January, causing more distress to travel refugees included in his mandate. Here's a thumbnail version: In June, the justices let the ban go into effect for foreigners and refugees lacking "bona fide" relationships with people or entities in America.

Former President Barack Obama sought to boost annual refugee admissions, raising the FY2017 cap to 110,000 before leaving office.

Putin also said he and Abe discussed the prospect of joint economic activities by their countries on the disputed Kurile islands. The statement says both leaders stressed that the worldwide community has condemned North Korea's "provocations".

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, the most liberal and overturned appellate court in the land, along with the Fourth Circuit, the second most liberal court in the land, ruled against the Trump Administration and issued injunctions.

The government immediately appealed the order to the Ninth Circuit and simultaneously asked the Supreme Court to stop the District Court's decision from taking effect. That portion of the 9th Circuit ruling is stayed.

In June, the Supreme Court said in a provisional ruling the ban can be enforced pending arguments scheduled before the court in October.

On Tuesday, the full court said it had granted the administration's appeal. Resettlement agency directors said they believed their groups would counted as a USA entities, some told HuffPost in June, but the Justice Department later clarified that they didn't qualify. The Trump administration had stated that the temporary ban would give officials time to assess US vetting procedures and would address the risk that terrorists could slip into the country. The judges made numerous references to Trump's alleged anti-Muslim bias in their respective decisions to block the order.

The court is expected to take up the legality of the travel ban October 10.

As Prior noted, the final resolution of this case, Trump v. Hawaii, joined to Trump v.
