Supreme Court Upholds Trump Ban on Refugees Entering U.S.

HeadlineJul 20, 2017

The Supreme Court on Wednesday upheld harsh restrictions against refugees entering the United States while it considers the fate of President Trump’s travel ban. The move will prevent—at least for now—an estimated 24,000 refugees from resettling in the U.S. The high court did uphold a lower court order that will grant exemptions to Trump’s ban on travelers from six majority-Muslim nations to include those with grandparents, aunts, uncles and other relatives living in the U.S.
