The Trump administration asked the Supreme Court on Monday to put on hold a federal appeals court ruling from last week that narrowed the scope of the travel ban as it applies to a certain class of refugees.
The Justice Department wants to stay part of the appellate decision that said refugees should be allowed to enter if they have formal assurances from resettlement agencies that they will provide services when the refugees arrive.
The Supreme Court temporarily reinstated a partial version of Mr Trump's beleaguered ban in June, pending a final decision in October. The ruling would have taken effect Tuesday without the high court's intervention.
As a matter of law, the Supreme Court can't rule on a case that no longer presents an ongoing issue.
Although Trump initially coupled this refugee ban with his broader Muslim Ban, Kennedy's order still leaves several previous court decisions limiting the Muslim Ban in place.

Now with this, those who have family members in the USA or have a job, or are enrolled in American Universities can not be barred from entering the States.
The ruling of the US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, issued September 7, would exempt refugees who have received assurances of support from resettlement agencies from President Trump's refugee ban.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Trump's ban could be implemented on a limited basis, but should not be applied to people with "bona fide" relationships to people or entities in the United States.
The Justice Department asked the Supreme Court to step in again - though only to block refugees, not grandparents and other extended family members. The same order included the 120-day ban on refugees. Even those refugees with formal assurances from a resettlement agency lack the sort of connection that should exempt them from the ban, the Justice Department argued in its filing to the Supreme Court.
The countries that weren't supplying adequate information were then to be given 50 days to begin doing so, and after that, top USA officials were to give Trump a list of countries recommended for inclusion on a more permanent travel ban.
