Supreme Court Rules for Trump: Ends All Injunctions That Blocked the White House’s Ban on Asylum

By PoliZette Staff | September 11, 2019

It’s a major win for the administration of President Donald Trump in regard to the protection of America’s border.

Late on Wednesday, the Supreme Court issued an order that will end all injunctions against the White House’s ban on asylum for anybody trying to enter the U.S. by traveling through a third country — such as Mexico, for example — without seeking protection there.

“The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals — long a liberal bastion that has been aggressively reshaped into a more moderate court by the Trump administration — handed the White House a partial victory in the case on Monday by ending the nationwide injunction,” as Fox News reported.

“But the 9th Circuit kept the injunction alive within the territorial boundaries of the circuit — which encompasses California, Arizona, Alaska, Hawaii, Montana, Nevada, Idaho, Guam, Oregon and Washington,” the outlet added.

The high court’s order was not a final ruling on the policy’s merits.

But it does allow the policy to take effect across the nation immediately — all while the case keeps making its way through the lower courts.

In a brief to the Supreme Court on Tuesday, the Trump administration argued that unless the nationwide injunction is lifted, it “would severely disrupt the orderly administration of an already overburdened asylum system.”

Trump had promised to take action to decrease the flow of illegal immigrants into this country through the southern border; most migrants are coming from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.

The new asylum rules are expected to greatly reduce the number of immigrants from Central America who can request asylum in the U.S., as The Hill noted.
