Supreme Court Justice Stays Appeals Court Ruling Limiting Trump Travel Ban

13 Septembre 2017

Today the justices blocked a later ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit that interpreted the category of refugees who are eligible to enter the country more expansively than the government would have liked.

A federal appeals court ruled last week that refugees must be given an exception to the president's executive order if a USA -based resettlement agency had agreed to help them.

The Trump administration has had its restrictive policy on refugees upheld by the Supreme Court.

The Department of Justice appealed the Ninth's ruling to the Supreme Court on Monday, arguing that it would create uncertainty and confusion around the implementation of the travel ban.

However, by that date, the 90-day travel ban put in place by the order will have lapsed, along with the 120-day refugee ban, which is set to expire in October. The affected countries are Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

The justices said in June that the administration could not enforce the bans against people who have a "bona fide" relationship with people or entities in the United States.

Chelsea have been solid in the Premier League too. "We must give him the possibility to recover very well, to be totally fit". I accept we must play better but I'm still satisfied with the performance given the quality of the opponent.

The court will hear further arguments on the policy first rolled out by President Donald Trump in January 2017 next month. The high court has agreed to review those rulings. "Refugees' lives remain in vulnerable limbo during.the Supreme Court's stay", the judges wrote.

The Justice Department appealed, and Tuesday, the full Supreme Court, all 9 Justices sided with the Administration in a 1-sentence order.

Some very liberal U.S. courts have limited the scope of that order, expect all of them to be overturned.

Resettlement agencies do not deal with refugees directly until they get here, the government said in its latest filing.

That includes grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins to a list that already included a parent, spouse, fiance, son, daughter, son-in-law, daughter-in-law or sibling already in the U.S.

The US Supreme Court has allowed Donald Trump to implement a travel ban on several predominantly Muslim countries. If he lets the bans dissolve on their own, the Supreme Court might be happy to cancel their October 10th affair and let the order meet its end with a whimper, rather than a bang.
