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.
In his filing, acting Solicitor General Jeff Wall said DOJ was only asking for a stay for the lower court ruling as it applies to the refugees.
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled last week refugee resettlement agencies should be allowed to bring asylum seekers into the country, overruling the order's mandate to ban refugee entry.
The administration also sought to reverse the part of the ruling that protected refugees who were in the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program, The Hill reported.
The president ultimately revoked the first ban - which blocked refugees and citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States - and replaced it with a less onerous version that blocked refugees and citizens of six of the initial seven countries.
The top justices of the country will sit for a hearing to discuss if the ban was legal or not. The ruling would have allowed refugees to enter the country if they obtained promises of assistance from refugee resettlement organisations.
Last week, a federal appeals court panel weighed in, deciding that the administration could block neither grandparents nor refugees with assurances.
The administration told the court Monday said that changing the way it enforces the policy on refugees would allow "admission of refugees who have no connection to the United States independent of the refugee-admission process itself". That was a strong hint - a hint that the Ninth Circuit did not take - that there were five members of the Supreme Court who were unlikely to agree with the order benefiting refugees.
If implemented, Wall argued, the 9th Circuit's orders would result in "precisely the type of uncertainty and confusion that the government has worked diligently to avoid" in its implementation of the order so far.
Under the terms of Trump's order, the 90-day travel ban would end before the arguments even happen - on September 27.
The justices are scheduled to hear arguments October 10 on a pair of cases related to the ban. The appeals court ruled that grandparents and cousins of people already in the USA can't be excluded from the country under the travel ban.
