Supreme Court issues temporary refugee ban order

The Justice Department on Monday asked the Supreme Court to stop part of an appeals court ruling from going into effect that would limit enforcement of President Trump's refugee ban.

The Ninth Circuit's decision to affirm that order, it should be noted, was a bold move, because the Supreme Court previously stayed this order benefiting refugees, pending further review by the Ninth Circuit.

The appellate ruling would allow refugees to enter the United States if a resettlement agency in the US had agreed to take them in.

The administration also sought to reverse the part of the ruling that protected refugees who were in the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program, The Hill reported.

The department did not ask the court to immediately block a separate part of Thursday's ruling by the 9th Circuit that said grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins of legal USA residents should be exempted from Trump's ban on travelers from six Muslim-majority countries.

The Supreme Court already has weighed in twice on lower court rulings striking down or limiting the travel and refugee bans, though it has to rule on their validity.

In addition, models below the age of 16 must not be hired by brands to take part in shows or shootings representing an adult.

Justices of the highest court in the land accepted the administration's emergency petition to stay a ruling by the San Francisco Appeals Court last week that would have allowed thousands of refugees already in the pipeline to come to the United States despite the ban.

The Justice Department asked the Supreme Court to step in again - though only to block refugees, not grandparents and other extended family members.

The high court on June 26 cleared part of the ban to take effect in the meantime, while saying the US had to admit at least some people with close relatives in the U.S.

Under the terms of Trump's order, the 90-day travel ban would end before the arguments even happen - on September 27.

In its filing Monday, however, the Justice Department gave in on another challenge to the travel ban over its narrow interpretation of "bona fide relationship" when determining exceptions for refugee family members. A series of court decisions since then have said that order must include people with grandparents and cousins in this country.
