US Supreme Court backs Trump on asylum crackdown

US Supreme Court backs Trump on asylum crackdown

This is another win for the Trump administration at the Supreme Court which will now be able to enforce a tough new rule limiting who can apply for asylum in the United States.

The rule would bar nearly all immigrants from applying for asylum at the southern border.

The Supreme Court's order is the latest move in a case that has bounced around between lower courts.

Curbing migration to the U.S. has been a key goal of his presidency and forms a major part of his bid for re-election in 2020.

The American Civil Liberties Union, which represents the East Bay Sanctuary Covenant and other immigrant-rights groups challenging the policy, argued in legal papers that the administration was attempting "a blatant end-run around the scheme Congress created" to manage asylum applications.

In her dissent, Sotomayor said that the government's rule may be in significant tension with the asylum statute. A a few-judge panel of the ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals narrowed Tigar's get so that it used only in Arizona and California, states that are inside of the 9th Circuit.

U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar had blocked the Trump administration's approach. Tigar issued a new buy on Monday that reimposed a nationwide maintain on asylum plan.

They were both trumped by Supreme Court, which will allow the asylum restriction to remain in place until the underlying legality of the rule is determined at trial.

Illegal immigrant families turn themselves to U.S. Border Patrol to seek asylum following an illegal crossing of the Rio Grande in Hidalgo, Texas, on August 23, 2019.

Solicitor General Noel Francisco argued Wednesday that the asylum rule - which is meant to bar immigrants from entering the country without seeking protection from the U.S. or nations they travel through - was supposed to keep out people "who declined to request protection at the first opportunity". "The life of countless numbers of people are at stake".

The Supreme Court cleared the way for the Trump administration's rule that dramatically limits the ability of Central American migrants to claim asylum to go into effect nationwide while the appeals process plays out.

The Supreme Court in November will consider whether the Trump administration acted lawfully when it cancelled an Obama-era program, called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, that provided benefits to undocumented immigrants who were brought to the USA as children.

The U.S. Supreme Court building at dusk on Capitol Hill in Washington. "This rule will outcome in these fleeing peril and persecution to be modified into away at our doorstep and would possibly maybe maybe ideal exacerbate the humanitarian disaster within the distance", they talked about in a assertion. Rather than playing cat and mouse with hundreds of thousands of migrants, this new rule allows the administration to stop them before they're released to the interior.

The Trump administration's rules, which reversed long-standing and more liberal US asylum procedures, were initially announced in July but was blocked by an order from a lower court.
