Supreme Court blocks new refugees under Trump travel ban

http://www.latimes.com/politics/washington/la-na-essential-washington-updates-supreme-court-blocks-new-refugees-under-1505255496-htmlstory.html

The Supreme Court gave a short-term win to the Trump administration Tuesday, bolstering part of a travel ban that will allow the administration to block new refugees arriving from six majority-Muslim nations.

In a brief order and with no dissents, the justices reversed rulings by a federal judge in Hawaii and the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco.

The 9th Circuit had cleared the way for as many as 24,000 refugees to be exempt from the ban and come to this country as long as one of several nonprofit groups had given a "formal assurance" they were prepared to receive them.

Administration lawyers argued these people did not qualify for an exemption because they had "no contact" or previous relationship with anyone in this country, which was the criteria set under a previous Supreme Court decision.

1. Aaaand once again the 9th Circus lives up to its reputation for reversal

I wonder if the same poster who was extolling the 9th for its ruling, will show up to tell us how it doesn't really matter now?

Plus it was 9 -0, so even RBG thought it was a really stupid ruling.

What's their reversal rate by SCOTUS now, 85%+?
