Justices allow Trump administration ban on most refugees

SCOTUS Sides With Trump on Travel Ban

SCOTUS Sides With Trump on Travel Ban

The plan would cut the number of refugees admitted to below 50,000 over the next year, the lowest level since at least 1980, sources told the Times. President Barack Obama said 110,000 refugees should be allowed in the U.S.in 2016, the report said.

The justices did not explain their reasoning, although it took five justices to make the decision.

Under the Refugee Act, the president must consult with Congress and decide the refugee admission number by the start of each fiscal year, October 1. The decision on the refugee ceiling should be made by October 1.

President Trump issued a second order after the first was challenged by liberal activists, rewriting it to address the concerns in the liberal court's rulings.

Jennifer Lawrence: Darren Aronofsky is brilliant
The Oscar victor continued her appraisal of her new lover and went on to explain just why she thinks he's so great: "His point of view, his artistic uniqueness".

The Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed President Donald Trump's ban on refugees from entering the U.S.to continue. The court did not specify which relatives qualified, for instance, but it did say that spouses and mothers-in-law "clearly" counted.

The Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a Motion to Clarify and Application for Stay after Hawaii Attorney General Douglas S. Chin sought a broader definition pertaining to those permitted to enter the U.S. However, the Court refused the government's request to clarify the definition of "close familial relationships".

The Supreme Court largely upheld that ruling in July, although it put on hold the portion dealing with refugees.

Its intervention so far has been to evaluate what parts of the policy can take effect in the meantime.

Seven Arsenal stars set to miss the Cologne game
It seems that Arsene Wenger will play a slightly weakened side with squad players coming into the team. Bellerin told the IBTimes : "Alexis is 100 per cent focused on Arsenal".

In establishing guidance for enforcement of the travel ban, the Trump administration concluded that refugees who had received assurances of assistance from resettlement agencies in the US did not have a sufficiently strong relationship with an American entity to warrant exemption from the ban.

Resettlement agencies do not deal with refugees directly until they get here, the government said in its latest filing.

Hawaii opposed the request, but the court granted the stay in a one-sentence order on Tuesday afternoon.

In the meantime, the court said travelers from the six targeted Muslim-majority countries - Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen - can bypass the travel ban and enter the USA if they can prove they have a "bona fide" relationship with a US person or entity.

North Korea lashes out over 'vicious' United Nations sanctions
