The U.S. Department of Justice has asked U.S. District Judge James Robart to change his order that partially lifted a Trump administration refugee ban, the Associated Press reports. Robart’s order blocked restrictions on reuniting refugee families and partially lifted a ban on refugees from 11 countries. Robert limited the injunction to refugees who have a bona fide relationship to people in the United States, and also included refugees with formal agreements with resettlement agencies in this order. The federal government is seeking to change the portion related to resettlement agencies.
