Top court gives Don a little immig victory
WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court is allowing the Trump administration to maintain its restrictive policy on refugees.
The justices on Tuesday 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.
The order was not the court’s last word on the travel policy that President Trump first rolled out in January.
The justices are scheduled to hear arguments on Oct. 10 on the legality of the bans on travelers from six mostly Muslim countries and refugees anywhere in the world. THE TOP House Democrat and a senior White House official indicated Tuesday they’re open to a deal on border security to expedite legislation to help Dreamers.
White House legislative director Marc Short said at a Christian Science Monitor event that the administration won’t necessarily tie Trump’s border wall demands to legislation to help immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, meanwhile, said she’s open to more border security measures — but no wall.
