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 around the world. A partial, temporary ban has been in effect since that decision, which only allows entry by those with a "bona fide" relationship to a family member in the US or a USA entity. The court did not specify which relatives qualified, for instance, but it did say that spouses and mothers-in-law "clearly" counted. Federal District Court Judge Derrick Watson in Hawaii later ordered the list expanded to include grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, cousins and in-laws. Tuesday's order was the latest in a series of interim measures interpreting statements in a June ruling in which the court agreed to hear the case. Since the law was enacted, the annual quota for worldwide refugee resettlement int the US has averaged 94,000, according to State Department figures. "The lower courts have simply applied this court's standard to protect vulnerable refugees and the American entities that have been eagerly preparing to welcome them to our shores". If the Trump administration renews the entry ban after it expires on September 27th or signals that it will extend the refugee ban, there will be good reason for the justices to review lower-court rulings against the order. The high court is scheduled to hear arguments on Trump's overall travel ban on October 10 to determine whether the president had the authority to impose his executive order in the first place.
The administration's request sought to overturn the lower court's ruling on refugees, and does not try to re-impose the travel ban on people with distant family relations in the United States. The president is required to set a new number each year on October 1 under the Refugee Act of 1980. Trump cut that number by more than half in his January order. The appeals court also had ruled that grandparents and other relatives of people already living in the USA can not be barred entrance under the president's travel ban. The order said explicitly that the entry of the refugees was being allowed "pending further order of this court". This is not about religion - this is about terror and keeping our country safe.
