US Supreme Court Backs Broad Trump Refugee Ban

The justices exempted those with a "credible claim of a bona fide relationship" to a United States person or entity from the refugee ban, which affects those from anywhere in the world, and the 90-day travel ban from six Muslim-majority countries.

The US Supreme Court has issued an order allowing President Donald Trump's travel ban with respect to refugees to be implemented, according to a court document.

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

The order took effect in late June, following a Supreme Court ruling that narrowed the scope of lower court rulings.

Supreme Court Restores a Portion of Trump's Travel Ban, In Continuous Chess Match

An global passenger arrives at Washington Dulles worldwide Airport after the U.S. Supreme Court granted parts of the Trump administration's emergency request to put its travel ban into effect later in the week pending further judicial review, in Dulles, Virginia, U.S., on June 26, 2017.

Judge Watson, a leftwing appointee made by Barack Obama, said refugees working with resettlement agencies in the USA are considered to have a "close" relationship and must be admitted. Officials at the National Security Council, State Department, and Defense Department have opposed a significant drop in the number of refugees accepted, per the Times. The court will hear arguments next month on the broader constitutional challenge to the travel ban from states and immigrant rights groups. The administration did not ask the Supreme Court to block that part of the ruling. The prevalent case emanates out of Supreme Court ruling in June that endorsed a limited version of Presidential instruction that momentarily blocked fugitives and citizens of six majority-Muslim countries. However, Watson chose to expand the exemption considerably, to include grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins of people already in this country. All the 9th Circuit ruling did is "protect vulnerable refugees and the American entities that have been eagerly preparing to welcome them to our shores", the state's lawyers added.

That issue, though, will come up at the October hearing. These refugees may have entered along with an appeal to a promise of assistance through refugee resettlement organizations.

The Justice Department had not sought a stay of that portion of the decision, though it disagreed with the interpretation. However, unless Trump renews the 90-day order, it will have expired by then and the court could consider the case moot.
