Breaking news: On Tuesday, Supreme Court of United States has allowed President Donald Trump to broadly implement a ban on refugees entering the country from all over the world.
The justice granted a request from Trump administration to deny a federal court appeal decision that according to the justice department, there are 24,000 non-Americans to enter the US than would otherwise have been eligible.
The Supreme Court verdict has given Trump and his administration an upper hand while the federal court prepares for going against another controversial Trump ban that banned refugees from six Muslim countries from entering the United States.
The March 6 order suspended residents of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Yemen, Syria & Sudan from entering in the United States.
However, in the ruling of last week by 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals said that the grandparents, parents, uncles, and aunts of legal US citizens belonging to these countries will be exempted from this ban.
The 9th Circuit court also said that Trump policy was too broad and that the court allowed residents entry to the US who had a clearance from resettlement agency.
‘The Supreme Court today has dealt yet another devastating blow to vulnerable people who were on the cusp of obtaining safety for themselves and their families,’ said Naureen Shah, Amnesty International USA’s senior director of campaigns.
She further said, ‘They continue to be subjected to unimaginable violence and fear while their lives are in limbo.’
