Supreme Court Grants Trump Travel Ban Request
The ban is back. After the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last week that 24,000 refugees whose resettlement claims had been sponsored by charities should be allowed to enter the United States, yesterday the Supreme Court granted a request from the Trump administration to continue to bar them from the country. Legal ping-pong has ensued as courts have battled over the extent of the ban’s enforcement, but the most recent ruling maintains the status quo until the country’s highest court can debate its legality next month.
