Trump asylum rules backed by SCOTUS upending 9th circuit court block

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court supported the Trump administration’s immigration policy again, ending the block by leftists, fighting to oppose the asylum rules across the southern border, the implementation and enforcement of “third country” rules.

The administration has said that it wants to close the gap between an initial asylum screening and a final decision on asylum by having Central American refugees get asylum in Mexico first and then seek asylum here in the U.S.

U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar in San Francisco blocked the new policy from taking effect in late July. A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals narrowed Tigar’s order so that it applied only in Arizona and California, states that are within the 9th Circuit.

The Supreme Court ruling Wednesday overturned even that narrower appellate court decision, effectively blocking Tigar’s order from going into effect anywhere until a final high court ruling.
“BIG United States Supreme Court WIN for the Border on Asylum!” President Donald Trump tweeted.

In a statement Wednesday night, the U.S. Justice Department said it “is pleased that the Supreme Court intervened in this case, which enables full implementation of this important immigration rule across the entire southern border. This action will assist the Administration in its objectives to bring order to the crisis at the southern border, close loopholes in our immigration system, and discourage frivolous claims.”
Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented from the high-court’s order.

“Once again, the Executive Branch has issued a rule that seeks to upend longstanding practices regarding refugees who seek shelter from persecution,” Sotomayor wrote.
