US SC: Grandparents, grandkids exempted from Donald Trump travel ban

Supreme Court allows Donald Trump to apply severe veto to migrant entry

Supreme Court allows Donald Trump to apply severe veto to migrant entry

The Supreme Court has upheld parts of a lower court order that had widened the definition of which citizens from the six Muslim-majority countries covered by the Trump administration's travel ban are still eligible to travel to the U.S. "An assurance from a United States refugee resettlement agency, in fact, meets each of the Supreme Court's touchstones: it is formal, it is a documented contract, it is binding, it triggers responsibilities and obligations", District Court Judge Derrick Watson wrote. But the justices on Wednesday put that provision on hold until the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco can review it.

The US Supreme Court has ruled that Donald Trump's refugee ban can be enforced - for the time being.

But, in a partial win for the Trump administration, the justices blocked a separate part of the federal judge's ruling regarding refugees who have no family ties in the country.

The Supreme Court justices, however, stayed that portion of the judge's order without elaborating.

The executive order applies to visa applicants from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen and imposes a 120-day ban on refugees from anywhere in the world.

Meanwhile, up to 24,000 refugees already assigned to charities or religious organizations in the U.S. will not be able to use this link to enter the US.

The Trump administration then decided to make exceptions for spouses, parents, parents-in-law, children, sons-in-law and daughters-in-law, fiancés and siblings of those already in the country.

The state of Hawaii, which has led the challenge of the travel ban, told the justices that the government's argument was "nonsense". However, they barred grandparents, grandchildren, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law.

"Family unity won today, but clarity and security for refugees remains at risk", the National Immigration Law Center said in a statement shortly after the Supreme Court order.

Justices Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch and Clarence Thomas would have blocked Watson's order in its entirety.

Also Wednesday, the court scheduled argument over the travel ban for October 10, though the 90-day pause will have expired by then.
