Supreme Court dismisses last remaining travel ban appeal

Supreme Court dismisses last remaining travel ban appeal”

Trump's 120-day ban on refugees ended on Tuesday and is set to be replaced by a new set of restrictions. The resettling of so-called following-to-join refugees will resume, according to the memo, once screening "enhancements have been implemented".

While Hawaii's was the last remaining challenge to that particular iteration of President Donald Trump's travel ban, it wasn't necessarily the last one, Reuters said.

In June, the court reinstated the ban after it was blocked by a lower court, though it exempted people traveling to the United States who could show they had a bona fide relationship to a person to entity in the U.S. It said the government will conduct a 90-day review "to determine what additional safeguards, if any, are necessary to ensure that the admission of refugees from these countries of concern does not pose a threat to the security and welfare of the United States".

Trump has made limiting immigration a centerpiece of his policy agenda.

The court combined Hawaii's challenge with a case brought by the International Refugee Assistance Project, but cancelled the oral arguments scheduled for October 10 after Trump issued new, targeted restrictions on travel from eight countries. Trump argued that the USA needed to do a better job determining whom it allowed into the country given the threat of terrorism. Trump had promised as a candidate "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States". The new order added restrictions on travel from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Syria, Yemen, Chad, Venezuela and North Korea. Three sources familiar with refugee processing said that list was still current.
