Supreme Court sides with Trump on travel ban on refugees

Washington Examiner:

The Supreme Court ruled that President Trump can limit refugees from coming into the U.S. for now, scrapping a federal appeals court ruling that would have limited the scope of Trump's travel ban.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals court last week said refugees with a formal assurance from a government agency, such as resettlement agencies, are exempt from Trump's travel ban. The travel ban temporarily blocked foreign nationals from coming to the U.S. from six Muslim-majority countries unless they have certain family ties in the U.S., a move the Trump administration said is needed to ensure national security.
