US Supreme Court Allows Trump's Broad Refugee Ban

US Supreme Court Allows Trump's Broad Refugee Ban”

The administration's request sought to overturn the lower court's ruling on refugees, and does not try to re-impose the travel ban on people with distant family relations in the United States.

That put the broader legal challenges to the travel ban - which halts all refugees and travelers from six mostly Muslim countries - off until an expected Supreme Court review on October 10.

According to the Justice Department, the decision would have allowed up to 24,000 additional refugees to enter the United States than would otherwise have been eligible.

The administration argued that by granting entry to any refugees who had been matched up with a resettlement agency in the US, the lower court went far beyond the type of personal relationship Trump required.

The order was not the court's last word on the travel policy that Trump first rolled out in January.

The dispute concerned the reach of the high court's June ruling, which allowed the president's order to take partial effect.

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 Justices were considering the Administration's latest requests about the scope of its powers to enforce the presidential order only as an interim issue, without regard at this time to whether the Trump order's restrictions are actually valid legally or constitutionally. The ruling blocked a lower court decision.

The justices will hear argument on the merits of the president's travel ban on October 10.

The administration also said relationships between refugees and resettlement agencies were too attenuated to qualify for an exception to the ban because the arrangements had been made by an intermediary, the government. "We will continue to vigorously defend the order leading up to next month's oral argument in the Supreme Court". "Refugees' lives remain in vulnerable limbo during.the Supreme Court's stay", the judges wrote.

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

Administration lawyers argued these people did not qualify for an exemption because they had "no contact" or previous relationship with anyone in this country, which was the criteria set under a previous Supreme Court decision.
