Looks like more judicial activism.
A federal judge from CA has issued a nationwide injunction to halt the Trump Administration’s new asylum policy.
A federal judge in California restored his decision to block a Trump administration rule that dramatically limits the ability of Central American migrants to claim asylum, after the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals narrowed the injunction last month.
The rule, from the departments of Justice and Homeland Security, would prohibit migrants who have resided in or traveled through third countries from seeking asylum in the US, therefore barring migrants traveling through Mexico from being able to claim asylum. The new rule would severely limit who’s eligible for asylum.
In his order Monday, US District Judge Jon Tigar said, “The primary reason a nationwide injunction is appropriate is that it is the only means of affording complete relief.”
