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

12 September, 2017, 00:17 | Author: Essie Rivera
  • The Supreme Court is seen on the last day of its term in Washington. 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

Once again, a federal court has ruled against the Trump administration's temporary ban on admission into the United States of refugees and citizens of six majority-Muslim countries.

The Justice Department's high court filing Monday follows an appeals court ruling last week that would allow refugees to enter the United States if a resettlement agency in the US had agreed to accept their case.

The ruling would have taken affect on Tuesday, reopening the door to 24,000 people left in limbo by President Donald Trump's on-again off-again travel ban.

"Will will fight it", responded Neal Katyal, one of the lawyers defending refugees and travelers blocked from coming to the U.S.by Trump's executive orders.

The administration is not challenging the part of the ruling that applies to a temporary ban on visitors from six mostly Muslim countries.

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.

"This Court's ruling can not plausibly bear that construction, which would as a practical matter render the partial stay this Court granted as to the refugee provisions a dead letter", the administration said.

The Supreme Court's decision came not long after the Justice Department asked the justices to act.

That section of the decision upheld Watson's ruling that the travel ban can't be used to exclude grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins of persons in the United States.

"The absence of a formal connection between a resettlement agency and a refugee subject to an assurance stands in stark contrast to the sort of relationships this Court identified as sufficient in its June 26 stay ruling", Wall wrote in his filing.

It's not clear what the Justice Department hopes to gain by appealing this injunction against Trump's executive order, as the Supreme Court was already set to hear arguments on the ban's legality on October 10. By that point, the original 90-day travel ban will have lapsed and the 120-day refugee ban will have just a few weeks to run.

Last week, the lower court narrowed the scope of the travel ban for extended family members such as grandparents and refugees.
