SCOTUS Allows Strict Enforcement of Trump Refugee Ban

The U.S. Supreme Court is allowing the Trump administration to more strictly enforce its ban on refugees, the AP reported Wednesday. The ban will remain in place until a federal appeals court in San Francisco weighs in. The administration had appealed a ruling made last week by U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson, which required the government allow in refugees working with a resettlement agency in the United States; the ruling also expanded the family relations used to determine which refugees and visitors can be allowed into the country. A lower-court order making it easier for travelers from the six banned, majority-Muslim countries will remain in place.
