A big win for the Trump administration allows the asylum restrictions to take effect until a decision by the 9th Circuit.
The Supreme Court ruled to end a nationwide injunction that had blocked the White House’s ban on asylum for anyone trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border by going through a third country.
Two activist judges dissented: “Wise Latina” Justice Sonia Sotomayor and anti-Trump Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The two biased judges had this to say in their dissent: “Once again the Executive Branch has issued a rule that seeks to upend longstanding practices regarding refugees who seek shelter from persecution.”
The policy is just common sense because if an illegal passes through other countries before reaching the US border, why couldn’t they ask for asylum in one of those countries?
The illegals who are working the system have been using the asylum claim to get refugee status so they can come into the US. Under Trump’s plan, there are restrictions that will reduce the invasion at our southern border.
Fox News reports:
The Supreme Court’s order was not a final ruling on the merits but allowed the policy to proceed while lower courts in the 9th Circuit address the case.
Now that the case is back in the 9th Circuit, there is hope the tide will turn in favor of the Trump policy because the court has been “reshaped” to be more moderate under President Trump.
