WE'RE SENDING THEM BACK! Appeals Court OKs Returning Asylum Seekers Back To Mexico
As if President Trump hasn't been winning enough already, he just claimed another win for America.
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals granted the request made by the Trump administration to send asylum seekers back to Mexico temporarily while they await court proceedings.
According to Fox News,
The court order reversed a decision by a San Francisco judge that would have blocked the policy — giving President Trump a temporary victory on immigration.
The case must still be considered on its merits at a lower court in San Francisco and could end up at the Supreme Court.
The whole lawsuit is on the behalf of 11 asylum seekers from Central America, but in my opinion, it's all just a big rouse put on by Democratic lobbyists like Soros to try and destroy America.
“DHS is likely to suffer irreparable harm absent a stay because the preliminary injunction takes off the table one of the few congressionally authorized measures available to process the approximately 2,000 migrants who are currently arriving at the nation’s southern border on a daily basis,” he wrote.
The other two judges — Obama and Clinton appointees — also backed allowing the policy to stay in effect, but raised questions about it in concurring opinions.
Judge William Fletcher, the Clinton appointee, argued that existing federal statute did not allow DHS to send migrants to Mexico under the program.
“The government is wrong,” he wrote. “Not just arguably wrong, but clearly and flagrantly wrong.“
A San Francisco-based district court judge first blocked the “remain in Mexico” policy in April. The judge said the initiative, formally known as the “Migrant Protection Protocols,” likely violated federal regulatory law. The Trump administration appealed the case to the 9th Circuit, which allowed the policy to be implemented immediately while it considered the issue.
The latest ruling keeps “remain in Mexico” in effect while the case continues before the appeals court.
In the end, I believe President Trump will emerge from all of this triumphant.
