The US Justice Department has asked the Supreme Court to block a federal judge’s ruling that exempted grandparents of people living in the country from President Donald Trump’s travel ban.

In a filing on Friday, the Trump administration asked the nine Supreme Court justices to overturn Thursday’s decision by a federal judge in Hawaii.

The judge placed limits on the measure temporarily barring refugees and other travellers from six predominantly Muslim countries.

Trump’s March 6 executive order bars visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen for 90 days, and refugees for 120 days. The administration insists it is necessary to keep violent extremists out of the country.

After a series of judicial roadblocks in the lower courts, the administration scored a partial victory in June, when the Supreme Court ruled that it could proceed with the ban, though people with a “bona fide relationship” to a US person or entity were exempt.

The ruling, which capped months of legal wrangling, left unclear the question of just who had such a “credible claim.”

The Trump administration provided a list defining the category as including parents, spouses, children, sons- and daughters-in-law, siblings and step- or half-siblings.

But federal Judge Derrick Watson in Hawaii

ruled that the administration’s criteria unfairly excluded grandparents and grandchildren.
