Siding With Trump, SCOTUS Gives Narrowed Muslim Ban Temporary Stay

Andrea Germanos, staff writer

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy on Monday put a temporary hold on a lower court's ruling that had narrowed the scope of the Trump administration's so-called Muslim ban, thus allowing the government to continue to at least briefly bar entry from some 24,000 refugees.

"Kennedy ordered those opposing the administration to file court papers by noon Tuesday," Bloomberg reports.
