Supreme Court blocks lower court's ruling that lifted Trump travel ban

Attorneys for the state of Hawaii on Tuesday asked the Supreme Court to let stand a ruling that prevents the Trump administration from banning thousands of refugees from entering the country.

Hawaii's filing came in response to a Trump administration request filed on Monday seeking to block the lower court's decision last week that loosened the Republican president's ban by allowing entry to refugees from around the world if they had a formal offer from a resettlement agency. The Supreme Court said Monday that President Trump's travel ban on visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen can be enforced if those visitors lack a "credible claim of a bona fide relationship with a person or entity in the United States". The move thus allows a part of Trump's travel ban order to be implemented, for the time being.

Kennedy's order stopped the refugee exemption that would have taken effect the morning of September 12 under the 9th Circuit's ruling issued five days earlier.

In July, the justices issued an order that temporarily allowed strict enforcement of the exclusion of refugees.

"To minimize the disruptive effect of the district court's decision, the modified injunction should be stayed pending appeal and the Supreme Court's disposition of the pending clarification motion", reads the motion.

The ruling would have paved the way for about 24,000 refugees to enter the U.S.

"The fact that the government is now in the midst of implementing the Order pursuant to the Supreme Court's stay ruling magnifies the need for a stay pending appeal".

The Trump administration has for months been battling to defend the president's executive order, which was meant to pause for 90 days all entry to the USA from six countries identified as high risks for terrorist travel and for 120 days all refugee admissions.

This motion, along with the broader question of whether the travel ban violates the U.S. Constitution and First Amendment by discriminating against Muslims, will be reviewed by the Supreme Court in October. By that point, the original 90-day travel ban will have lapsed and the 120-day refugee ban will have just a few weeks to run.
