WASHINGTON D.C. — The United States Supreme Court handed the Trump administration a win Tuesday when the justices in a brief order put on hold a lower court ruling that had exempted from Trump's travel ban as many as 24,000 refugees with formal contractual assurances from nonprofit resettlement agencies.

After government lawyers filed an emergency appeal on Monday, Supreme Court Justice Anthony M. Kennedy imposed a temporary stay on the Ninth Circuit ruling, pending a response by the state of Hawaii the party challenging the travel ban on refugees from the six mostly Muslim countries of Libya, Sudan, Syria, Yemen, and Somalia.

The full court on Tuesday said the Ninth Circuit's ruling "is stayed with respect to refugees covered by a formal assurance, pending further order of the court," as reported by the Los Angeles Times. The order was issued without comment and with no dissents.

The Supreme Court has scheduled oral arguments on the overall legality of the travel ban in October. Because the ban was designed to be temporary, lasting from between 90 and 120 days, the court could decide it has lapsed, making the legal issues moot.

It is impossible to predict by today's ruling how the high court will decide the case being presented next month.

"Although it may be tempting to see the order as a harbinger of how the court is likely to rule on the merits," said CNN Supreme Court analyst Steve Vladeck, a professor of law at the University of Texas Law School, in a CNN report, "it's better understood as a very modest procedural step to stabilize the full scope of the injunctions against the travel ban over the next four weeks."
