Trump Admin Asks Supreme Court to Block Ruling That Allows More Refugees

The Supreme Court agreed Monday to uphold President Donald Trump's executive order banning refugees from entering the USA, hours before it was set to be upended, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

The appeals court decision, which affects about 24,000 refugees, could take effect on Tuesday.

The 9th Circuit upheld a decision by U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson on refugees with resettlement assurances that had been stayed by the U.S. Supreme Court pending the appeal. The Supreme Court ultimately decided that Trump could impose that measure, but not on those with a "bona fide" connection to the United States, such as having family members here, a job or a place in an American university.

The president ultimately revoked the first ban - which blocked refugees and citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States - and replaced it with a less onerous version that blocked refugees and citizens of six of the initial seven countries.

The top justices of the country will sit for a hearing to discuss if the ban was legal or not.

"This Court's ruling can not plausibly bear that construction, which would as a practical matter render the partial stay this Court granted as to the refugee provisions a dead letter", the administration said.

The 9th Circuit's order requires the administration to admit refugees contracting with resettlement agencies beginning Tuesday, so the high court is likely to move quickly in issuing its own ruling.

In June, the high court said the administration could not enforce the bans against people who have a "bona fide" relationship with people or entities in the United States.

The arguments hinged on a stipulation in the travel ban that refugees in the pipeline can only be accepted if they have a "bona fide relationship" with a USA individual or entity.

The Trump administration is back at the Supreme Court, asking the justices to continue to allow strict enforcement of a temporary ban on refugees from around the world.

As lower courts and the Supreme Court weighed in on the travel and refugee bans in recent months, the US refugee program has lurched from an ambitious projection of 110,000 arrivals for the year, to just a few hundred arrivals a week.

The stay takes issue not with the familial relationship issue, but with the allowance of refugees, an immigration classification Trump's executive order initially temporarily halted.
