US Supreme Court allows President Trump to implement refugee ban

The US Supreme Court has allowed President Donald Trump to implement broadly a ban on refugees entering the country from around the world.

The court granted a request from the Trump administration to block a federal appeals court decision that would have eased the restrictive refugee policy and, according to the Justice Department, allowed up to 24,000 additional refugees to enter the US before October.

Mr Trump had signed a revised executive order in March that banned travellers from six Muslim-majority countries – Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen – for 90 days and locked out most refugees for 120 days. The US President had said, the move was needed to prevent terror attacks.
