A U.S. Supreme Court justice issued a short-term order restoring President Donald Trump’s ban on thousands of refugees seeking entry to the country.
The order issued Monday by Justice Anthony Kennedy puts a lower court ruling on hold until the high court decides whether to grant the administration’s request for a longer-term order. Hawaii, which is challenging the Trump policy, urged the court Tuesday to leave the appeals court ruling in force.
A federal appeals court ruled last week that the administration must temporarily admit refugees if a resettlement agency had promised that it would provide basic services for them. That decision was set to take effect Tuesday, and as many as 24,000 refugees have received such assurances, the administration said in papers filed with the high court.
The ruling on refugees “will disrupt the status quo and frustrate orderly implementation of the order’s refugee provisions that this court made clear months ago could take effect,” acting U.S. Solicitor General Jeffrey Wall wrote.
Hawaii’s court brief said assurance agreements require resettlement agencies to make extensive investments in preparation for refugees’ arrival. Refugees don’t pose any true security threat, the state said.
