Supreme Court allows broad Trump refugee ban

The Justices were considering the Administration's latest requests about the scope of its powers to enforce the presidential order only as an interim issue, without regard at this time to whether the Trump order's restrictions are actually valid legally or constitutionally.

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 USA from six mostly Muslim countries and a 120-day ban on refugees, to give officials time to assess vetting procedures.

The Democrat Repeal and Replace Plan: Single-Payer
Bernie Sanders' "Medicare-for-all" bill, which would allow every American to enroll in the single-payer insurance program. Gillibrand is the latest in a slew of Democrats to co-sponsor Sanders' plan, alongside Sens.

Trump administration lawyers asked the court on Monday to set aside last week's federal appeals court ruling that would allow more refugees into the United States while the case is pending. With the Supreme Court's order on Tuesday, these have prevented the above rulings from going into effect for now. They said Mr Trump's sweeping ban on refugees (though not its anti-grandma policy) could go into effect pending review by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

A senior administration official has said there is a "broader rethinking of how the United States deals with migrants" that is based on the idea that it is more effective and affordable to help people outside the US's borders than within them, given the current backlog. That was less than half the 110,000 refugees former President Barack Obama said should be admitted in 2016.

The Donald Trump administration has yet to spell out clearly whether it will seek to renew the travel bans, make them permanent or expand it to other countries.

Kennedy's temporary order would give the full Supreme Court time to consider the merits of the government's emergency request. However, Watson made a decision to expand the exemption considerably, to include grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins of people already in this country. In June, the Court reinstated President Trump's travel ban until oral arguments were heard on October 10, 2017. A series of court decisions since then have said that order must include people with grandparents and cousins in this country. The Court ruled that those nationals with a "close familial relationship" or a "formal, documented" relationship with an American entity formed "in the ordinary course" could continue to enter the country. At the Supreme Court, the government challenged only the part of the appeals court's ruling concerning refugees, arguing that there is no direct connection between refugees and resettlement agencies.

On Monday, Justice Anthony Kennedy temporarily blocked the 9th Circuit's decision, which would have gone into effect Tuesday.
