Judge blocks Donald Trump’s new asylum rule

July 25, 2019

  Well, that did not take long! Yesterday a Federal judge refused to block Donald Trump’s new asylum rule from going into effect while the rule is challenged in the courts but today another Federal judge reversed that decision and blocked the rule.

  Here is more:

A federal judge in San Francisco on Wednesday blocked the Trump administration from enforcing a new rule that aimed to bar almost all asylum applications at the U.S.-Mexico border.

U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar in the Northern District of California issued a preliminary injunction blocking the rule, which would require asylum-seekers to first pursue safe haven in a third country they had traveled through on their way to the United States.

The decision makes inconsequential a ruling by Washington D.C. District Judge Timothy Kelly earlier in the day that declined to block the rule in a different lawsuit brought by immigration advocacy groups, lawyers said.

And the beat goes on…
