Federal Judge Blocks Trump Administration Policy Of Sending Asylum-Seekers To Mexico

The one monumental lie that’s ripping us apart

The president's increasingly erratic immigration rhetoric comes as he is carrying out staff changes that critics warn could make his policies toward migrants even more brutal. He declared a national emergency over the issue earlier this year in an effort to redirect funding from Congress to build a wall along the USA southern border. "I'm the one who stopped it", he said.

As Politico notes, the injunction does not "tackle the question of whether DHS has the authority to send asylum seekers to Mexico". "And more immigrants are emboldened to make the unsafe journey". An estimated 1 million illegal aliens with final deportation orders now reside in the United States.

"President Obama had child separation", Trump said Tuesday.

"These are the people running the cartels".

According to two of the sources, Nielsen told Trump that federal court orders prohibited the Department of Homeland Security from reinstating the policy, and that he would be reversing his own executive order from June that ended family separations. His administration has said it's trying to cope with a crisis at the southern border. On April 9, he said he would not reinstate the policy, but lamented not having the option, since migrants are coming to exploit the loophole. It would create centers in Central America where asylum applications could be processed and provide aid to reduce poverty and violence in the region so fewer people would flee. "Our military, don't forget, can't act like they would normally act because if they got a little rough, everybody would go insane", Trump told reporters in San Antonio, Texas, a city with so many military bases in the area that it's been given the nickname "Military City, USA".

The White House issued a statement Tuesday condemning the ruling and saying it would appeal. The senior administration official said the move would spur a legal battle that may eventually lead to the overturning of the Flores settlement.

In response, Trump has moved to cut almost $500 million in aid to Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, whose citizens have trekked toward the U.S.in growing numbers.

While Trump disputed any upheaval at Homeland Security, his outside allies launched a public campaign urging him to nominate former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach to replace Nielsen.

"A 9th Circuit judge just ruled that Mexico is too risky for migrants", he tweeted. The day after that, DHS acting Deputy Secretary Claire Grady offered her resignation.

Mexico's foreign minister on Wednesday criticized hold-ups in the flow of goods and people at the U.S-Mexico border, and said he planned to discuss the matter with U.S. Department of Homeland Security officials later in the day.

Immigrant rights activists chided the administration.

With the number of undocumented migrants crossing the border to enter the USA at its highest level in more than a decade, the president is desperately seeking to fulfil his signature campaign pledge to reduce unauthorized immigration into the US.

Republicans say Democrats are simply out to block Trump. That could mean setting up temporary shelters, he added, and picking up other requests "consistent with things we've done in the past", according to the outlet.
