The high court acted Wednesday on the administration’s appeal of last week’s ruling by U.S. District Judge Derrick Watson that required the government to allow in refugees formally working with a resettlement agency in the United States. Watson also vastly expanded the family relations that refugees and visitors can use to get into the country.
The justices said the federal appeals court in San Francisco should now consider the appeal.
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy sent out a tweet following the decision:
I’ll keep fighting to keep Connecticut immigrants brought here as kids from being deported. They make America stronger. #defendDACA
