The Travel Ban Just Went Back To The Supreme Court

The Travel Ban Just Went Back To The Supreme Court

The Supreme Court on Monday agreed with a request from the Trump administration and blocked a federal appeals court ruling temporarily lifting restrictions on the president's travel ban.

The president ultimately revoked the first ban - which blocked refugees and citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States - and replaced it with a less onerous version that blocked refugees and citizens of six of the initial seven countries.

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. The appellate ruling could take effect as soon as Tuesday and could apply to up to 24,000 refugees.

Kennedy ordered challengers to the administration's refugee ban to submit written arguments in support of the lower court ruling by midday Tuesday.

While some have speculated the disappearing water could indicate an incoming tsunami, that's not the case here. "The wind on Long Island in the Bahamas is from the southeast to the northwest on Saturday", Fritz writes.

The president originally called to block almost all refugee arrivals with an executive order in January, followed by an amended replacement to that order in March.

The 90-day travel ban affects visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

The order is temporary, and will likely last until the full Court weighs the refugee ban. More than a half-dozen states have sued to stop the ban so far.

The arguments hinged on a stipulation in the travel ban that refugees in the pipeline can only be accepted if they have a "bona fide relationship" with a United States individual or entity.

Macron: France will continue to support Greece
Greek authorities have issued a ban on protests in central Athens during an upcoming visit by French President Emmanuel Macron .

The Trump administration said it should not, meaning such refugees would be barred.

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 Justice Department is appealing an injunction on President Trump's travel ban, even though a significant portion of the ban is set to expire by the October 10 court date.

The countries that weren't supplying adequate information were then to be given 50 days to begin doing so, and after that, top US officials were to give Trump a list of countries recommended for inclusion on a more permanent travel ban.
