New York Daily News - - NEWS - The As­so­ci­ated Press News Wires

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.
