Injunction against Trump policy lifted in asylum case

Source: Politico

A federal appeals court has temporarily lifted a nationwide injunction against President Donald Trumpís effort to deny asylum to immigrants who enter the U.S. after passing through another country.

Acting at the request of the Trump administration, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issued an administrative stay Tuesday night that put on hold the injunction issued Monday by San Francisco-based U.S. District Court Judge Jon Tigar.

The temporary hold implemented while the appeals court considers a longer stay essentially restores the legal situation that existed prior to this week, with Trumpís policy blocked only in the Ninth Circuit, which includes the border regions of California and Arizona.

That allowed the administration to implement the new policy in New Mexico and Texas, barring rulings from other courts as litigation over the issue ricochets through various courts The Trump administration has asked the Supreme Court to step in on an emergency basis to allow officials to carry out the Trump policy as announced in July. The high court has yet to rule on that request.
