DOJ Asks Supreme Court To Protect Trump’s Enhanced Vetting Policy

The Department of Justice (DOJ) asked the U.S. Supreme Court late Monday to lift an injunction barring enforcement of President Donald Trump’s proclamation on enhanced vetting, the third iteration of his ban on refugee and migrant entry.
The request places the president’s contentious immigration policy back before the justices, who have previously signaled a preference for avoiding the issue altogether.
The president issued the proclamation in late September when the second version of the travel ban expired after a 90-day enforcement period. Federal courts in Maryland and Hawaii issued orders forbidding enforcement of key provisions of the proclamation shortly after it was issued. Those orders were partially upheld by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which concluded any national from six of the eight countries named in the order with a significant connection to the United States may still enter the country.
