CNN新闻:U.S. Supreme Court Allows Trump's Refugee Ban
美国最高法院允许旅行禁令继续实施
燕山大学 刘立军 宋葳 编写

◆TRANSCRIPT

For the time being, the U.S. Supreme Court is allowing the Trump administration to continue keeping certain immigrants and refugees from entering the U.S. What's known as the government's travel plan temporarily prevents the immigration of certain people, from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. It also puts America's refugee resettlement program on hold.

The Trump administration has argued that this will help keep the U.S. safer from people who might pose a threat to Americans. Critics have argued that this will only harm refugees who pose no threat to Americans.

Last week, a federal appeals court ruled that refugees who've been promised legal resettlement in the U.S. would be exempted from the ban. That means as many as 24,000 people who were originally blocked by the ban would be allowed to immigrate in spite of it.

The Trump administration objected to the appeals court's ruling, and yesterday, the Supreme Court blocked it. That means the government's order will stand, keeping those would-be immigrants out of the U.S.

This is one step in a bigger legal process. The Supreme Court has not decided whether the Trump administration's travel restrictions as a whole will be allowed. It's scheduled to take up that subject on October 10th.
