Trump Takes Travel Order back to SCOTUS

Trump Asks US Supreme Court to Restore Refugee Travel Ban

In a routine, but potentially still quite ominous order, Justice Anthony Kennedy stayed a federal appeals court's order halting Donald Trump's effort to ban tens of thousands of refugees from the United States. That decision is set to take effect Tuesday, and as many as 24,000 refugees have received such assurances, the administration said in papers filed with the high court. The Supreme Court ultimately decided that Trump could impose that measure, but not on those with a "bona fide" connection to the United States, such as having family members here, a job or a place in an American university.

That put the broader legal challenges to the travel ban - which halts all refugees and travelers from six mostly Muslim countries - off until an expected Supreme Court review on October 10.

The top justices of the country will sit for a hearing to discuss if the ban was legal or not.

Brewers pitcher Jimmy Nelson out for rest of 2017
The team announced that Jimmy Nelson's shoulder will sideline him for the remainder of 2017. In Garza's defense, the Brewer hitters didn't show up again.

But the 9th Circuit last week ruled that refugees a US resettlement agency has committed to providing services for once they have arrived in the country should be exempt from Trump's order.

The Trump administration is back at the Supreme Court, asking the justices to continue to allow strict enforcement of a temporary ban on refugees from around the world. That was a strong hint - a hint that the Ninth Circuit did not take - that there were five members of the Supreme Court who were unlikely to agree with the order benefiting refugees. Lower courts had blocked the ban, saying Trump overstepped his authority and unconstitutionally targeted Muslims.

Neal Katyal, a lawyer representing the state of Hawaii, which is challenging the travel ban, wrote on Twitter that he would "fight" the government's latest request. The same order included the 120-day ban on refugees.

But her comments during a CNN town hall about putting coal miners out of business is the mistake she said she "regrets the most". It was an aspiration dashed by Donald Trump's election, which Clinton recounts in her campaign memoir, " What Happened ".

The debates here, now before the Supreme Court, have centered around what constitutes such a "bona fide relationship".

The countries that weren't supplying adequate information were then to be given 50 days to begin doing so, and after that, top USA officials were to give Trump a list of countries recommended for inclusion on a more permanent travel ban.
