Donald Trump to appeal court ruling on asylum for people who enter the country illegally

December 26, 2018

  December 21st was a bad day for the President and his immigration policies when the Supreme Court ruled against him twice. One of the cases involved asylum seekers who come into the country illegally and the Supreme Court refused to reinstate the policy after it was blocked by the lower court.

  According to this story Donald Trump is planning on appealing this ruling once the partial government shutdown is over, here is more:

The Trump Administration on Wednesday signaled its appeal of a federal court ruling that blocked the White House from restricting asylum claims at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Federal District Judge Jon Tigar last week blocked President Donald Trump’s November proclamation and fast-track regulation to bar migrants from seeking asylum who do not cross the border at ports of entry.

Administration officials told the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday that it planned to appeal Tigar’s ruling. Because of the partial government shutdown, however, an extension to file an opening brief for the appeal has been requested until government funding is restored.

The appeal comes several days after the Supreme Court let stand Tigar’s ruling in a 5-4 decision, with Chief Justice John Roberts siding with the court’s four liberal justices.

  Maybe I am missing something here or maybe there is faulty reporting in the article I linked to and quoted above–either way maybe somebody can help me out. If the Supreme Court has already let the ruling stand how does the President have any appeals left?

  I have to assume there are appeals left but even so what is the point of appealing at this point? No matter how the appeal turns out this will make its way back to the Supreme Court eventually and with its last ruling on this case we have a clear indication of what the Supreme Court’s decision will be. It seems like nothing but a waste of time and money at this point.

    The ‘globalist perverse judges’ think they rule, don’t they. That their word is supreme.
    All their antics “are” a waste of time, effort, money and breath since it all goes for naught.
    I was think since the military are guarding the boarder, they don’t answer to the ‘fake judges’ they answer to #POTUS. Need to send some of them into the courts and remove the ‘black robes’. 🤺💥
    Those paid by the dem’s, soros, central bankers are told to ‘get in -cross into American- anywhere it’s “not legal” entry!
    The Lawless don’t abide by the law, but expect others to.
    “Traitors”. What’s suppose to be done with traitors? aSap.

      That’s right, these judges are globalists using their position to push the globalist agenda and they need to be stopped!
