Judge blocks Trump’s order barring asylum for illegal immigrants

117

U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar said the Trump administration can’t limit asylum applications to only those people who enter the U.S. are legal border crossings. The president issued a proclamation on Nov. 9 that said anyone who crossed the southern border between official ports of entry would be ineligible for asylum. As the first of several caravans of migrants have started arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border, Trump said an asylum ban was necessary to stop what he’s attacked as a national security threat. But in his ruling Monday, U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar agreed with legal groups that immediately sued, arguing that U.S. immigration law clearly allows someone to seek asylum even if they enter the country between official ports of entry.
