U.S. District Judge Upholds Trumps Asylum Restrictions; Then Another Judge Blocks

Many of the Central American migrants who attempt to cross the US Southern border are nothing more than liars who are willing to say anything to raise their standard of living.

U.S. District Judge Timothy J. Kelly of Washington, D.C., handed down a decision that supports Pres. Trump’s ability to restrict carte blanche asylum seekers who skip over their home state and the entire country of Mexico seeking life here in the United States.

This decision is a result of two nonprofit advocacy groups for immigrants that considered Trump’s restrictions a blockade against refugees fleeing so-called persecution. An attorney for the advocacy groups claimed the limitations “radically rewrites” current U.S. asylum law, but U.S. District Judge Kelly declined to stop Trump administration’s move.

Trump’s new restrictions bar asylum seekers from Central America who passed through a third country on the way to the U.S.-Mexico border. This is logic and common sense, but some people need to be shown through legal matters how the law should be enforced. It was enacted earlier this month. New restrictions also say migrants from Honduras and El Salvador must be denied asylum in Guatemala and Mexico before being considered for asylum in the United States.

It is good to see this federal judge acknowledge that the United States government has the right to police its borders by ensuring that asylum-seekers follow the law and are not allowed to scam their way into this country.

Official Statement From The White House:

“Today’s ruling in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia is a victory for Americans concerned about the crisis at our southern border. The court properly rejected the attempt of a few special interest groups to block a rule that discourages abuse of our asylum system.

The rule properly encourages migrants to seek asylum in other countries they have traveled through before reaching the United States and makes those who fail to do so ineligible for asylum, thereby foreclosing opportunistic claims by those who want to exploit our asylum system in an effort to immigrate unlawfully to the United States.

Tens of thousands of migrants making opportunistic asylum claims have not only exacerbated the crisis at our southern border but also have harmed genuine asylum seekers, who are forced to wait years for relief because our system is clogged with meritless claims.”

However, right after this ruling and response from the White House, Politico reported U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar, an Obama appointee temporarily halted Pres. Trump’s policy banning asylum seekers who pass through another country while they are en route to the United States.

In a 45-page order, Tigar found the rule ignored a pair of federal statutes that outline guidelines for barring asylum seekers who transit through a designated “safe third country” or have permanently resettled in another country.

The new regulation, he wrote, “is likely invalid because it is inconsistent with the existing asylum laws.”

Additionally, he found that the decision to enact the measure was “arbitrary and capricious.” While it purports to offer protections for migrants, the ban could potentially expose them to grave dangers as they’re forced to seek protection in Mexico or other nations before applying for asylum in the U.S., he said.

According to Reuters, The decision makes inconsequential a ruling by Washington D.C. District Judge Timothy Kelly earlier in the day that declined to block the rule in a different lawsuit brought by immigration advocacy groups, lawyers said.

If these idiot judges don’t stop this, I fear that vigilante anger is going to ensure that the greatest danger to the migrants will be that faced in the United States. During the caravan crisis late last year, Tigar blocked President Trump’s ban on migrants’ ability to claim asylum if they didn’t come through a port of entry.

We, the voters, need to clean out Congress in 2020 and elect non-corrupt representatives who will impeach and remove lawless, activist judges like this wicked fool from California.
