Let the travel ban expire, Mr. President

America Cannot Be Intimidated: Trump Speaks on Anniversary of 9/11 Attacks

The Trump administration asked the country's highest court on Monday to block a lower court ruling that would allow refugees with formal assurances from USA resettlement agencies to come to the United States.

The appeals court also had ruled that grandparents and other relatives of people already living in the USA can not be barred entrance under the president's travel ban.

The California-based 9th Circuit ruled on Thursday that "refugees who have formal assurances from resettlement agencies or are in the US Refugee Admissions Program ("USRAP") through the Lautenberg Amendment" should be allowed in.

The stay takes issue not with the familial relationship issue, but with the allowance of refugees, an immigration classification Trump's executive order initially temporarily halted.

A 9th Circuit order, due to take effect on Tuesday, would have cleared the way for as many as 24,000 refugees who have "a sponsorship-assurance agreement" with a US -based refugee-resettlement agency, the government said.

Since then, several motions have been filed against the Trump administration's implementation of the restrictions, claiming that the government's definition of a "bona fide relationship" was too narrow.

The administration is not challenging the part of the ruling that applies to a temporary ban on visitors from six mostly Muslim countries.

What's more, a significant portion of the ban will likely have expired by that date - and the rest before the justices can even rule on the case.

Since Trump signed his first travel ban shortly after taking office, the directive has been mired in a complicated legal battle.

A U.S. Supreme Court justice is temporarily restoring an element of Donald Trump's controversial travel ban that could affect some 24,000 refugees. The justices declined to define the required relationships more precisely.

With the fiscal year ending September 30, just 51,726 refugees have come to the country since October 1, 2016 hewing close to Trump's stated desire to cap arrivals at 50,000. Even those refugees with formal assurances from a resettlement agency lack the sort of connection that should exempt them from the ban, the Justice Department argued in its filing to the Supreme Court.
