BREAKING: Trump Just Got Massive Win From SCOTUS On Immigration
As you already know, practically everything that President Trump does to try and help our country gets challenged by some circuit judge and ends up having to run its way through the courts until it's finally approved. This time, it had to go all the way to the Supreme Court.
The President had signed a bill that would ban granting asylum to immigrants who are crossing the southern border and who traveled through another country but failed to seek asylum there.
The Department of Homeland Security previously announced the ban:
On July 16th, a joint Interim Final Rule (IFR) issued by the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security will publish in the Federal Register … Specifically, the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security are revising 8 C.F.R. § 208.13(c) and 8 C.F.R. § 1208.13(c) to add a new bar to eligibility for asylum for an alien who enters or attempts to enter the United States across the southern border, but who did not apply for protection from persecution or torture where it was available in at least one third country outside the alien’s country of citizenship, nationality, or last lawful habitual residence through which he or she transited en route to the United States.
According to The Daily Wire,
Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan added, "Until Congress can act, this interim rule will help reduce a major 'pull' factor driving irregular migration to the United States and enable DHS and DOJ to more quickly and efficiently process cases originating from the southern border, leading to fewer individuals transiting through Mexico on a dangerous journey."
As Fox News noted, on Monday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ended the nationwide injunction against the Trump ban but only did so partially, leaving California, Arizona, Alaska, Hawaii, Montana, Nevada, Idaho, Guam, Oregon and Washington, all within the province of the 9th Circuit, immune from the Trump ban.

The ban makes perfect sense.
It will help control the massive influx of "asylum seekers" it was also deter them from coming in the first place because they could be seeking asylum in other countries besides the U.S.
This was honestly, the same scenario with people fleeing from Syria years ago. They really NEEDED to come all the way to the U.S. to gain asylum? Please.
