Recently, any lawsuits against Trump’s executive order banning refugee admissions were dismissed by the Supreme Court. They also announced that they would begin re-admitting refugees under a new screening process. This is a huge win for the Trump administration.
The refugee admissions to the United States resumed after “enhanced vetting” procedures for individuals from 11 countries that were deemed to pose a risk to the United States were put into place.
The Court’s decision to drop the case ends a round of litigation over the proposals that began in September, when new executive orders replaced the ones issued by the president in March.
Considering only one justice – Obama appointee Sonya Sotomayor – was not for vacating the lower court rulings. Especially given how large of a role immigration is set to play in the Trump administration, you can bet there were some smiles at the news at 1600 Pennsylvania.
