US Supreme Court Allows Trump Refugee Ban to Continue

US Supreme Court Allows Trump Refugee Ban to Continueā€¯

Grandparents and cousins of people already in the US can't be excluded from the country under the travel ban, as the Trump administration had wanted.

Kennedy ordered challengers to the administration's refugee ban to submit written arguments in support of the lower court ruling by midday Tuesday.

But the court disagreed, saying it considered the screening processes in place and the "concrete harms" suffered by resettlement agencies if refugees are refused entry to the U.S.

The administration and those suing it have quarreled over what exactly constitutes a "bona fide" relationship. But the Trump Administration filed a request to block the eventual ruling, which they just did. 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 Trump administration asked the Supreme Court to clarify what it meant in its June 26 ruling, but on July 19, the High Court denied that request.

Last week, a panel of the 9th Circuit weighed in, deciding that the administration could block neither grandparents nor refugees with assurances. 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.

A federal appeals court ruled last week that refugees must be given an exception to the president's executive order if a US -based resettlement agency had agreed to help them. The affected countries are Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

President Trump issued a second order after the first was challenged by liberal activists, rewriting it to address the concerns in the liberal court's rulings. The Supreme Court is to consider the merits of his actions at a hearing October 10.

And because the visa ban expires in late September, and the refugee ban lapses in late October, the entire case could collapse before the justices hear courtroom argument.

Since the Refugee Act of 1980, which codified the president's role in determining a ceiling for refugee admissions, the average limit has been about 94,000 worldwide.

Critics have called the order a "Muslim ban".

AMERICA'S federal courts have been almost unanimous in blocking or limiting Donald Trump's presidency-long quest to keep refugees and travellers from six Muslim majority nations out of the country.

The portion of the U.S. Code cited in the Trump order was, therefore, created by the Obama-signed law. To be clear, this is not a Muslim ban, as the media is falsely reporting.
