Court: Trump Can Bar Muslim Nation Refugees; Will Hear Arguments against Trump Ban Oct. 10

The U.S. Supreme Court yesterday agreed with the Trump administration and issued an order effectively allowing the White House to bar about 24,000 refugees from entering the U.S., The Daily Beast website reports today (September 13, 2017).

The court granted a request to put on hold an earlier federal appeals court ruling that prevented the White House from applying President Trump's travel order to several thousand refugees who already signed contracts with resettlement agencies.

The travel ban -- which has sparked several lawsuits as it attempts to prevent Muslim terrorists from migrating to the U.S. -- imposed a 90-day ban on people entering the U.S. from six predominantly Muslim countries and a 120-day ban on refugees.

The Supreme Court will hear arguments against the ban on October 10.
