Trump Asks US Supreme Court to Restore Refugee Travel Ban

US officials can at least temporarily continue to block refugees with formal assurances from resettlement agencies from entering the United States after the Supreme Court intervened again Monday to save a piece of President Donald Trump's travel ban.

Although the 9th Circuit also prohibited the government from banning relatives of someone in the United States, the Justice Department focused exclusively on removing the Appeals Court's protection of refugees who received formal assurance from resettlement entities.

The measure was supposed to have been temporary - lasting 90 days for citizens of the six affected countries, and 120 days for refugees.

In its filing Monday, however, the Justice Department gave in on another challenge to the travel ban over its narrow interpretation of "bona fide relationship" when determining exceptions for refugee family members.
