Trump Asks US Supreme Court to Restore Refugee Travel Ban

Trump Asks US Supreme Court to Restore Refugee Travel Ban

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. Such a relationship can arise from a close family member in the United States, or from something like a job offer from an American company or an offer of admission to an American university.

The administration said Monday that while it disagreed with that part of last week's ruling by a San Francisco-based appeals court, it was contesting only the portion of the ruling related to refugees in Monday's request.

The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments October 10 on President Donald Trump's overall travel order, which imposed a 90-day ban on people entering the US from six mostly Muslim countries and a 120-day ban on refugees, to give officials time to assess vetting procedures.

Acting Solicitor General Jeffrey Wall condemned the court's ruling on the prohibition on blocking refugees.

The debates here, now before the Supreme Court, have centered around what constitutes such a "bona fide relationship". A series of court decisions since then have said that order must include people with grandparents and cousins in this country.

The government said formal assurances from a refugee agency that may not have had direct, personal contacts with the refugee were not covered in that exception.

A ruling of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals pushed Trump on the back foot of travel ban on those refugees that have formal assurances from settlement agencies from entering the US.

Thursday night, the 9th Circuit Appellate Court struck another blow to Trump's second, scaled down travel order. Not only is the department now battling over an injunction on a policy that likely expires in two weeks, but its opening brief before the Supreme Court didn't even address the issue.

If implemented, Wall argued, the 9th Circuit's orders would result in "precisely the type of uncertainty and confusion that the government has worked diligently to avoid" in its implementation of the order so far.

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

Absent Supreme Court action, the Ninth Circuit's decision is due to go into effect Tuesday.
