Supreme Court allows Trump refugee restrictions but rejects ban on grandparents and close relatives

The court’s action on Wednesday had two parts. In one, it said it will not disturb a lower court’s decision that expanded the definition of close family ties.

But in another, it granted the government’s request to put on hold a part of the decision that would have made it easier for more refugees to enter the country.

The court giveth and the court taketh away.

Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, and Neil Gorsuch noted they would have stayed Watson’s order in its entirety.
