(Worthy News) - A federal judge in California reimposed a nationwide injunction blocking the Trump administration from enforcing severe new rules for migrants seeking asylum at the southern border, a setback for the president as he seeks to crackdown on illegal immigration.
The Monday ruling from U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar blocking the restrictions nationwide for a second time comes after the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last month narrowed the scope of the injunction to apply only within the circuit, which includes the border states of California and Arizona. As a result of the 9th Circuit's order, the asylum policy could take effect in Texas and New Mexico.
But the 9th Circuit said the federal district court would retain jurisdiction to “further develop the record in support of a preliminary injunction extending beyond the Ninth Circuit.” [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
