US Supreme Court Gives Green Signal to Trump's Travel Ban on Refugee

US Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy on Monday provided a temporary reprieve for president Donald Trump's order blocking most refugees from entering the US. This

The US Supreme Court kept the Trump administration's strict refugee ban in place Monday, at least temporarily dashing the hopes of some 24,000 already-approved immigrants.

The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear arguments in October about whether Trump's travel ban discriminates against Muslims, in violation of the U.S. Constitution.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last week refugee resettlement agencies should be allowed to bring asylum seekers into the country, overruling the order's mandate to ban refugee entry. A coalition of states and civil rights groups challenged the guidance, arguing the Supreme Court's order extends to this group of refugees, which numbers approximately 25,000.

The 9th Circuit's order requires the administration to admit refugees contracting with resettlement agencies beginning Tuesday, so the high court is likely to move quickly in issuing its own ruling. That was a strong hint - a hint that the Ninth Circuit did not take - that there were five members of the Supreme Court who were unlikely to agree with the order benefiting refugees.

Refugee Quotas Are Legal, Brussels Tells Budapest and Bratislava
The European Court of Justice has rejected efforts by Hungary and Slovakia to stay out of an EU scheme meant to relocate refugees. Some 54,000 are now due to be taken from camps in Turkey, which lowers the total figure to be relocated from Greece and Italy.

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. 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. Lower courts had blocked the ban, saying Trump overstepped his authority and unconstitutionally targeted Muslims.

The travel ban bars people from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the US.

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.

The appeals court ruled that grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins of American citizens must also be included in the definition of close family and be accepted into the country.
