Trump attacks ninth circuit for stopping his ban on illegal claiming asylum

US Federal judge blocks Trump's asylum ban

A federal judge on Monday issued a temporary restraining order blocking the Trump administration from denying asylum claims to immigrants who cross the US-Mexico border illegally.

President Trump issued the proclamation earlier this month as a matter of what he called national security as thousands of Central American migrants made its way through Mexico toward the United States border.

The migrant advocates are asking U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar for a temporary restraining order to stop the administration from implementing the asylum restrictions nationwide.

Tigar's ruling is an indication that he feels the asylum ban may violate the clause in federal law that allows people to apply for asylum "whether or not at a designated port of arrival".

"Whatever the scope of the President's authority, he may not rewrite the immigration laws to impose a condition that Congress has expressly forbidden", Tiger wrote, noting that federal law expressly permits asylum claims regardless of the manner of entry.

GONZALES: Under a new rule that took effect immediately, the Trump administration is requiring that asylum-seekers present themselves at official ports of entry.

Administration officials said the asylum law changes were meant to funnel migrants through official border crossings for speedy rulings instead of having them try to evade such crossings on the almost 2,000-mile (3,200-kilometre) border.

That argument is still being fought - but in the meantime, the American Civil Liberties Union, which is representing the Iraqis, uncovered evidence that the travel ban deal with Iraq was mostly a chimera.

The president's travel ban for majority-Muslim countries was blocked by judges in the 9th Circuit, but the Supreme Court later ruled the action was within the president's authority. Labeling the movements of Central American migrants a "national emergency", Trump deployed thousands of active-duty troops and coils of concertina wire to the border. The Department of Homeland Security estimates around 70,000 people a year claim asylum between official ports of entry.

Following the firing of Mr Sessions this month, Mr Whitaker was chosen to work as acting attorney general over Mr Rosenstein. It's unclear if Trump read McGahn's briefing.

"It's a disgrace", Trump said, alleging judicial bias and appearing to refer to Tigar - who was appointed by US President Barack Obama - as an "Obama judge". They make the point that some asylum-seekers don't always do it on objective.

The decision of whether to grant asylum is up to the USA attorney general, subject to review by federal appeals courts.

Byron Torrez says he knows a federal judge in California temporarily blocked the Trump administration's effort to deny asylum to people who enter the US without permission.

Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen speaks in front of the border wall separating Tijuana, Mexico, and San Diego.

In other words, a subversive group whose mission is undermining America sovereignty is injured if the president blocks the entry of illegal aliens the group uses to undermine American sovereignty.

"The President has sought to halt this risky and illegal practice and regain control of the border", the Justice Department said in a court filing.

Caravan participants began to arrive last week in Tijuana on the Mexican side of the USA border, which has put a strain on shelters where many will wait to seek asylum. The administration's rule, he observed, would force individuals "to choose between violence at the border, violence at home, or giving up a pathway to refugee status".

Less than 10% of cases result in an asylum being granted, the government says. The intent of Congress, Tigar wrote, was "unambiguous".

"There is no justifiable reason to flatly deny people the right to apply for asylum, and we can not send them back to danger based on the manner of their entry", Gelernt said. "Congress has been clear on this point for decades".
