President Trump was just handed a win by the Supreme Court of the United States. You may recall that a judge in Hawaii blocked Trump’s travel ban. The Supreme Court had other thoughts on the matter.
The Hill reports:
Supreme Court temporarily lifts restrictions on Trump travel ban
The Supreme Court on Monday granted the Trump administration’s request to temporarily lift restrictions on the president’s travel ban.
In a one-page order signed by Justice Anthony Kennedy, the court temporarily blocked the part of last week’s 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that barred the government from prohibiting refugees that have formal assurances from resettlement agencies or are in the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program from entering the U.S.
Kennedy said that part of the decision is stayed pending the receipt of a response from the state of Hawaii. That response that is due by noon on Tuesday.
The Supreme Court’s decision came less than two hours after Acting Solicitor General Jeffrey Wall filed a request for a stay.
In its opinion last week, the 9th Circuit also blocked the government from banning grandparents, aunts, uncles and other extended family members of a person in the U.S. from entering the country.
The left and the media will go crazy over this bet that’s just too bad for them.
