The Supreme Court Delivers Another Victory To The Trump Administration

Hannah Bleau

The Supreme Court won’t hear official arguments on the Trump administration’s temporary travel ban until October 10, but this is still a significant victory.

On Tuesday, Justices “agreed to an administration request to block a lower court ruling that would have eased the refugee ban and allowed up to 24,000 refugees to enter the country before the end of October.”

A panel of the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a district judge’s order that would have allowed refugees to enter the United States if a resettlement agency in the U.S. had agreed to take them in.


The administration objected, saying the relationship between refugees and resettlement agencies shouldn’t count. The high court’s unsigned, one-sentence order agreed with the administration, at least for now.

Key words being at least for now. October 10. That’s when the real test will begin.
