DHS/IMMIGRATION/JUSTICE DEPARTMENT/SUPREME COURT/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “The Trump administration asked the Supreme Court to allow a rule limiting asylum claims to go into effect nationwide while a lower court ruling blocking it is appealed. A federal judge had blocked the Trump administration rule, which dramatically limits the ability of Central American migrants to claim asylum if they enter the US by land through Mexico, nationwide. Earlier this month, the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals dialed back the nationwide injunction, saying that it can only apply to migrants claiming asylum in California and Arizona, states that fall under the Ninth Circuit’s jurisdiction. In its filing Monday [8-26-19], the administration laid out its case for the rule, arguing that, among other things, it ‘alleviates a crushing burden on the US asylum system’ and deters migrants from coming to the US…The Trump administration has rolled out a slew of policies in recent weeks to try to curb migration to the United States amid high border apprehension numbers.”
