(Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed President Donald Trump to implement broadly a ban on refugees entering the country from around the world.

The justices granted a request from the Trump administration to block a federal appeals court decision that, according to the Justice Department, would have allowed up to 24,000 additional refugees to enter the United States than would otherwise have been eligible.
