BREAKING: Judge reimposes nationwide injunction against Trump’s asylum rules
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by WashingtonPost:
A federal judge in California on Monday reimposed a nationwide injunction against President Trump’s policy denying asylum to almost all who enter the country after passing through Mexico or a third country.
U.S. District Judge Jon S. Tigar of Oakland said the policy could not be implemented anywhere along the southern border while a legal battle over it proceeds. The Trump administration announced on July 16 a change that denies asylum in the United States to those who pass through other countries without seeking asylum there.
The article goes on to state the following:
The Supreme Court is considering a request by the administration to allow the new restriction.
Fox News further reports:
“While nationwide injunctions are not the ‘general rule,’ they are appropriate ‘where such breadth [is] necessary to remedy a plaintiff’s harm,’” U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar wrote. “This is such a case. Accordingly, and for the reasons set forth above, the Court grants the [immigrant rights] Organizations’ motion to restore the nationwide scope of the injunction.”
The Trump administration in July announced the sweeping new policy tightening restrictions for asylum seekers. The new rule requires most migrants entering through America’s southern border to first seek asylum in one of the countries they traversed – whether in Mexico, in Central America, or elsewhere on their journey. In most cases, only if that application is denied would they then be able to seek asylum in the United States.
Monday’s ruling is another defeat for the administration on its asylum policies, and a win for immigrant rights groups.

This is … ahem … unfortunate. And if you read the opinion you will notice an extraordinary concern for the organizations – who are not the people affected (except that it’s their bu$ine$$ to work the issue)…
Can’t say much with live litigation.https://t.co/Vf0WRIcjCY
