WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Justice Department on Monday filed an emergency application at the U.S. Supreme Court seeking to block an appeals court decision that curbed President Donald Trump’s effort to temporarily bar most refugees from entering the United States. The department did not ask the court to immediately block a separate part of Thursday’s ruling by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that said grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins of legal U.S. residents should be exempted from Trump’s ban on travellers from six Muslim-majority countries.
