SCOTUS restores Trump travel ban of refugees, blocking lower court
On Tuesday, the high court decided in favor of the Trump administration's request to block the US 9th Circuit Court of Appeals' restriction on banning refugees, according to the Associated Press.
The 9th Circuit had ruled that up to 24,000 refugees be allowed to enter the country before the end of October.
The Supreme Court is set to hear arguments on the constitutionality of the temporary travel ban on October 10. The ban stems from an executive order banning entry to the US for travelers from six Muslim-majority countries.
The executive order's 90-day travel ban expires later this month, and its 120-day refugee ban sunsets in October.
