Supreme Court allows Donald Trump’s new asylum rule to go into effect

September 11, 2019

  It has been a bumpy road for Donald Trump’s new asylum rule which requires asylum seekers to apply for asylum in the first country they enter after fleeing their country before they can apply for asylum in the United States. (I always thought this was how asylum worked in the first place.)

  First a California judge, Jon Tigar, overstepped his bounds and blocked the rule nationwide and then the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals stepped in and narrowed the decision to where the judge actually had jurisdiction. However this same California judge turned around and re-implemented the ban nationwide despite the 9th Circuit Court’s ruling that  Jon Tigar did not have the jurisdiction to do so.

  The on-again off-again rule is back on again because the Supreme Court has ruled in favor of the Trump administration and against this rogue California judge. Here is more:

The Supreme Court is allowing nationwide enforcement of a new Trump administration rule that prevents most Central American immigrants from seeking asylum in the United States.

The justices’ order late Wednesday temporarily undoes a lower-court ruling that had blocked the new asylum policy in some states along the southern border.

  The Supreme Court decision apparently comes on the heels of the 9th Circuit once again narrowing the nationwide ban, so this decision goes even further than the 9th Circuit decision allowed. It looks like only Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented so that means John Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh held true this time.

    In all fairness the ruling should have two caveats that would allow Judges Tigar and RBG to house asylum seekers to be housed in their gated homes during the two years it will take to give the illegals a hearing. And also provide them with Obamacare at their expense.
