U.S. Supreme Court restores Trump travel ban

The United States Supreme Court on Tuesday granted a request by the Trump administration to continue to bar most refugees under its travel ban, CNN reports.

The court blocked a federal appeals court ruling from last week that would have exempted refugees who have a contractual commitment from resettlement organizations from the travel ban while the justices consider its legality. The ruling could impact roughly 24,000 people.
