Trump administration appeals to Supreme Court on refugee ban

Posted September 12, 2017

The Trump administration asked the country's highest court on Monday to block a lower court ruling that would allow refugees with formal assurances from US resettlement agencies to come to the United States.

Although the 9th Circuit also prohibited the government from banning relatives of someone in the United States, the Justice Department focused exclusively on removing the Appeals Court's protection of refugees who received formal assurance from resettlement entities.

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.

Although Trump initially coupled this refugee ban with his broader Muslim Ban, Kennedy's order still leaves several previous court decisions limiting the Muslim Ban in place.

The Supreme Court temporarily reinstated a partial version of Mr Trump's beleaguered ban in June, pending a final decision in October.

As a matter of law, the Supreme Court can't rule on a case that no longer presents an ongoing issue.

The Justice Department wants to stay part of the appellate decision that said refugees should be allowed to enter if they have formal assurances from resettlement agencies that they will provide services when the refugees arrive.

In a one-page ruling, signed by Justice Anthony Kennedy, the Supreme Court announced that the exemption would be stayed pending a response from the state of Hawaii.

But the 9th Circuit last week ruled that refugees a US resettlement agency has committed to providing services for once they have arrived in the country should be exempt from Trump's order.

In its filing Monday, however, the Justice Department gave in on another challenge to the travel ban over its narrow interpretation of "bona fide relationship" when determining exceptions for refugee family members. 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.

Trump administration lawyers told justices on Monday that changing the way it enforces the policy on refugees would allow "admission of refugees who have no connection to the United States independent of the refugee-admission process itself".
