Supreme Court allows Trump refugee travel ban

The US Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed President Donald Trump to broadly implement a ban on refugees entering the country from around the world. The question is whether a formal assurance from a refugee-resettlement agency establishes a "bona fide relationship" between a potential refugee and an American entity.

The Supreme Court in late June said the travel ban may not enforced against foreigners who have a "close" family tie with someone in this country, and the 9th Circuit said that may include grandparents, in-laws and cousins. But if no policy remains in place, one wonders why a limelight-shy Supreme Court would care to dive headlong into one of the most contentious issues surrounding Mr Trump's presidency.

The US Supreme Court took US President Donald Trump's side early this morning (Wednesday) blocking a federal appeals court ruling that revised the president's travel ban. That ruling was due to take effect Tuesday because the lower court had said thousands of refugees were "gravely imperiled".

Under the ban, people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen, are denied entry to the country for 90 days, while all refugees are banned from entering the country for 120 days so as to give the Trump government time to assess vetting procedures.

The state of Hawaii and others involved in challenging President Trump's executive order had tried to persuade the Justices, as they did the Ninth Circuit Court, that a promise of resettlement qualified as a sufficient tie to America.

Tuesday's ruling concurred with the preliminary ruling issued by Justice Anthony Kennedy on Monday evening.

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.

If that order was not, in fact, meant to be temporary only, then it could be in effect until the court holds its hearing next month on the legality of the Trump order.

The court will consider the travel ban again on October 10.

A representative for the Hawaii attorney general, who challenged the administration in court, could not immediately be reached for comment.

Last month, the justices said additional relatives deserved entry, but not additional refugees, leaving the appeals court in California to sort out the details.
