Ninth Circuit Blocks Trump Admin’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ Immigration Policy

A federal court has blocked a controversial asylum policy from the Trump administration. The administration had required all asylum seekers to remain in Mexico while their asylum claims were adjudicated.

According to The Hill:

A federal appeals court on Wednesday blocked the Trump administration’s “remain in Mexico” plan for asylum-seekers to stay in the country while their case plays out in U.S. courts in California and Arizona.

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco will prevent the government from enforcing its policy unless the Supreme Court gets involved before March 12. But the ruling will only apply to Arizona and California, the states under the court’s authority, and not New Mexico and Texas, The Associated Press reported.

The Trump administration is attempting to get the Supreme Court involved and had asked for the policy to continue to be in effect until next week to provide time for the Supreme Court to decide, according to the AP. The policy began in January 2019.

In the past, the Supreme Court has sided with the administration on a number of immigration and border protection legal issues including approving the “public charge” rule and the essential blanket rejection of all asylum-seekers passing through Mexico before attempting to enter the U.S.

Judge Ferdinand Fernandez, who was appointed by President George H.W. Bush, was the lone dissenter and didn’t believe the policy should be blocked at all.

As far as I can see, the Trump Rules have been working, which means
that…with this Judicial interference….the Democrats are desperate!!
1. This may simply be a way to detract from Biden’s many gaffe’s??
2. Democrats may feel that they are in need of more ILLEGAL votes?
Otherwise, why are they putting pressure on the 9th Court??

Recent appointments to the 9th circus court should have evened things out. Now when we need it most, with the Covid-19 virus on the spread, just let anyone in. Terrific.

I don’t understand the Democrats. They can’t take care of our LEGAL homeless people, yet they want to let millions of ILLEGAL immigrants who have no homes or jobs in to our country? How are they going to live? Who will house them, feed them and school their children????? They will be forced to commit crimes just to live. We know that is the case by the way crime has skyrocketed since they ben invading us. NOT ALL ARE CRIMINALS BUT MANY ARE!!!! “It is totally irresponsible” to put that kind of policy on the American people.

Trump could put a moratorium on all forms of immigration, until the southern border is secured. Which he refuses to do, he has the constitutional authority.

A moratorium just might force congress to secure the southern border, it would make Big business “silicon valley” Google, facebook, youtube, twitter, etc. that want cheap foreign labor to increase their bottom line to also put pressure on congress to secure the southern border.

Big business doesn’t want the illegal aliens, they are uneducated, don’t speak english, have a lot of health problems and crime problems, they are not employable and not good for high tech jobs.
