Trump Administration Asks Supreme Court To Block Travel Ban Ruling

His order also vastly expanded the list of US family relationships that refugees and visitors from six Muslim-majority countries can use to get into the country, including grandparents and grandchildren.

Citing national security concerns and the vetting process, the Trump administration had set a 50,000 cap for refugees for the 12-month period ending Sep.

The Supreme Court has agreed to hear oral arguments in the fall over whether the ban violates the U.S. Constitution.

"Many of them had already sold all of their belongings to start their new lives in safety", she said.

The federal budget can accommodate up to 75,000 refugees, but admissions have slowed under Trump, and the government could hold them to a trickle, resettlement agencies say.

The Supreme Court told the side challenging the travel ban to file a response to that request by Tuesday.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions had said the administration would ask the Supreme Court to weigh in, bypassing the San Francisco-based 9th U.S Circuit Court of Appeals, which has ruled against it in the case. The two filings overlap, and the appeals court could defer action until it sees what the Supreme Court does.

"The district court's interpretation of this Court's. ruling distorts this Court's decision and upends the equitable balance this Court struck", lawyers said in the motion.

Sessions, however, said that "the district court has improperly substituted its policy preferences for that of the Executive branch, defying both the lawful prerogatives of the Executive Branch and the directive of the Supreme Court". There was no timetable for the Supreme Court to act, but the administration sought quick action to clarify the court's June opinion.

The Supreme Court said that ban could go into effect except when it came to individuals with a "bona fide relationship" with a USA person or entity.

Under the Trump administration guidelines, spouses, parents, parents-in-law, children, sons-in-law and daughters-in-law, fiances and siblings of those already in the country can be admitted.

The decision will permit "grandparents, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins of persons in the United States" to qualify as close family and should be granted entry into the country as exempts from the travel ban, according to CNN.

The department filed the request for a stay with the court of appeals on Saturday while the US Supreme Court considers its appeal of a ruling by a federal court judge in Hawaii, AP reported. "Indeed, grandparents are the epitome of close family members".
