Donald Trump’s new asylum rule will remain in effect during court challenge

July 24, 2019

 Last week Donald Trump announced a new, tougher asylum rule which says that if a person seeking asylum from their country passes through another country on their way to America they must first apply for asylum in that country.

 This new rule (and to be honest I thought this already was a rule anyway) was met with an immediate court challenge and a request for a temporary restraining order pending the outcome of the court case.

  Today the request for a restraining order was denied and the new rule will remain in effect for the duration of the court hearings. Here is more:

A federal judge decided Wednesday to leave in place a Trump administration rule that imposes restrictions on individuals seeking asylum in the United States if they passed through a third country on their way to the border between the U.S. and Mexico, potentially leading to a sharp reduction in Central American migrants entering the country.

The rule, published in the Federal Register last week, requires people seeking asylum to first apply in one of the countries they pass through on their way to the U.S., with certain exceptions. The rule was quickly met with a legal challenge from advocacy groups, who moved for a temporary restraining order blocking the rule. After a hearing in Washington, D.C. federal court, District Judge Timothy J. Kelly denied the motion. The rule will remain in place for the duration of the case, unless the decision is successfully appealed.

  We will have to wait and see if an appeal is made but Donald Trump has been quietly racking up some court victories lately and I have to wonder if this decision might be an indication of how the court is going to end up ruling on this new rule.

    This is all so ludicrous … showing ‘friend from foe’ I guess – setting these people up to show where they really stand.
    Dems, Rinos, Establishment make alot of $$$$ from being criminals, if they didn’t they wouldn’t fight any of this.
    I wonder what it would look like to really have representative “For The People!” 🤔
