Justice Department Requests Supreme Court Remove Travel Ban Exception Protecting Certain Refugees

The Justice Department on Monday asked the Supreme Court to stay part of a federal appeals court ruling that had required the government to allow additional refugees to enter the United States.

The order is in response to the administration's request for the high court to block a lower court ruling that could allow up to 24,000 refugees to enter the United States.

In a one-page decision signed by Judge Anthony Kennedy, the high court temporarily blocked a decision by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals last week that stopped the government from prohibiting refugees from entering if a resettlement agency in the United States has agreed to take them in.

The Justice Department wants to continue that stay, but it is not seeking a stay of a separate portion of the 9th Circuit decision interpreting what constitutes 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 9th Circuit's ruling applies to the executive order, issued by President Donald Trump in the early days of his administration, which blocks travelers from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the USA for 90 days following its implementation.

Justice Department asks Supreme Court to... That filing, by Acting Solicitor General Jeffrey Wall, demonstrated the lengths to which the government is willing to go to impose its desired version of the ban, even before the high court takes up in earnest next month whether the measure is lawful at its core. Nor can the exclusion of an assured refugee plausibly be thought to "burden' a resettlement agency in the relevant sense", Wall wrote in the request to the Supreme Court for a stay.

The Supreme Court temporarily reinstated a partial version of Mr Trump's beleaguered ban in June, pending a final decision in October. The same executive order included a 120-day ban on refugees.

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy has issued a temporary order allowing the Trump administration to maintain its restrictive policy on refugees for the time being.
