The government had asked for a "temporary administrative stay" to give the justices time to consider the issue.
Last week, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit upheld a lower court order providing that refugees who "have a formal assurance from an agency within the United States that the agency will provide, or ensure the provision of, reception and placement services to that refugee" are not subject to the ban. The ban, plagued by legal challenges, had failed to take effect until that point.
It's not clear what the Justice Department hopes to gain by appealing this injunction against Trump's executive order, as the Supreme Court was already set to hear arguments on the ban's legality on October 10.
The US Supreme Court kept the Trump administration's strict refugee ban in place Monday, at least temporarily dashing the hopes of some 24,000 already-approved immigrants.
The 9th Circuit's ruling applies to the executive order, issued by President Donald Trump in the early days of his administration, which blocks travelers from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the US for 90 days following its implementation.
The court, however, left the door open for opponents of the ban to file their arguments against it by midday Tuesday, paving the way for yet another reversal on the status of possible refugee arrivals.
The arguments hinged on a stipulation in the travel ban that refugees in the pipeline can only be accepted if they have a "bona fide relationship" with a U.S. individual or entity.
The Supreme Court already has weighed in twice on lower court rulings striking down or limiting the travel and refugee bans, though it has to rule on their validity. But the Supreme Court refused to go along with the administration's view that it could keep out grandparents, cousins and some other family members.
"The absence of a formal connection between a resettlement agency and a refugee subject to an assurance stands in stark contrast to the sort of relationships this Court identified as sufficient in its June 26 stay ruling", Wall wrote in his filing.
Under the terms of Trump's order, the 90-day travel ban would end before the arguments even happen - on September 27.
