Trump administration asks Supreme Court for permission to enforce asylum ban


Recommended Posts


The Trump administration has asked the Supreme Court to step in to allow it to enforce a new policy barring immigrants who cross the border illegally from seeking asylum. 

Solicitor General Noel Francisco filed a request to Justice Elena Kagan, an Obama appointee, on Tuesday that asks the court to a block a district court order preventing the government from enforcing its ban nationwide.

Francisco called the lower court’s injunction “deeply flawed.”

“The nationwide injunction prohibits the Executive Branch from implementing an interim final rule adopted to address an ongoing crisis at the southern border, with significant implications for ongoing diplomatic negotiations and foreign relations,” he said in the filing.

The Ninth Circuit denied the government’s request for a stay but has not ruled on its appeal of the injunction issued by Judge Jon Tigar, an Obama appointee on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.:snip:
