9th Circuit Sorta Blocks Trump’s Remain In Mexico Policy

President’s Trump’s remain in Mexico policy rather makes sense: you want asylum? OK, we’ll process an application, but, you don’t have access to the whole of the lower 48 while applying. This has made Open Borders advocates upset

Court temporarily blocks Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy, then suspends its own order

An federal appeals court has temporarily halted a major Trump administration policy to make asylum seekers wait in Mexico while their cases wind through U.S. immigration courts.

A panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled Friday in a 2-1 vote to put on hold the policy that furthered President Donald Trump’s asylum crackdown.

The “Remain in Mexico” policy – known officially as “Migrant Protection Protocols” – took effect in January 2019 in San Diego and has spread across the border. Nearly 60,000 people have been sent back since the policy began.

The question before the judges was whether to let the policy take effect during legal challenges.

But, see, this wasn’t the only 9th Circuit ruling

Friday’s earlier decision, made after extensive written arguments and a hearing, found the Remain in Mexico program violated U.S. immigration law and a United Nations refugee convention, which bar the government from returning someone to a place where they would be persecuted.

So, they’re going by UN rules now? Further, I’m not sure what they’re seeing in federal immigration law, but, we don’t have to let people in willy nilly. However, the court did say that this only affects 4 southwestern states, not as a nationwide injunction.

A spokesperson for the Department of Justice said the decision highlighted “the consequences and impropriety of nationwide injunctions.”

“The Trump administration has acted faithfully to implement a statutory authority provided by Congress over two decades ago and signed into law by President Clinton,” the spokesperson said. “The 9th Circuit’s decision not only ignores the constitutional authority of Congress and the administration for a policy in effect for over a year, but also extends relief beyond the parties before the court.”

Open borders advocates will do anything to make the border porous. At the same time, they also had another ruling

(Breitbart) The same panel also declared that border agents must process claims for asylum made by migrants who are caught trying to sneak over the border fence far from the formal Ports of Entry.

That’s silly. Immigration law states that anyone caught attempting to enter the country/entered the country anywhere other than a designated port of entry is an illegal alien, and can be deported.

The two decisions — if accepted by a large panel of judges and by the Supreme Court — punch a nationwide hole through the border rules. The decisions will help the cartels, coyotes, and worldwide migrants to again cooperatively overwhelm U.S. border defenses and courtroom process and rush millions of migrants into U.S. job markets, housing markets, and K-12 schools.

Perfect timing, right as Coronavirus is raging, and even the NY Times says that quarantines and restrictive measures are the best idea. Shutting down the border is a good idea.

    “With liberty and justice for all.”
    Teach does that include non citizens?

    • KlemDadidlehopper says:

      I would say our constitution was not written for Brazilians protections.

      Our constitution was written for citizens Of the United States. Our pledge of Allegiance is no longer recited in the USA because of people like you are terrified of people having pride in our nation.

      People like you who keep blacks and whites and Asian locked down in urban cities in extreme poverty and then every 2-4 years demand they vote for democrats if they want a 2-3 percent raise on their welfare.

      Does Justice for all Apply to HRC and her smashing blackberries and deleting incriminating E-mails? Does Justice for all apply to Obama for selling guns to drug cartels? Does justice for all apply to Comey and McCabe for appling for false warrants against the Trump campaign. For outting a CIA agent working on the Trump team.

      I remember a former CIA agent being outted by Scooter Libby who is now in jail. Yet the Left can out whomever they want and nothing is done.

      Is there Justice for all in America John? No there is not. Certainly not if your an America Citizen. Certainly if your not a democrat protected by the communist news media and the deep state.

      Is there justice for all? You answer that question John because you obviously think America is evil and needs to be turned into a communist puppet state in which YOU get to tell ME what to do and think.

      Liberty John? only that which you say I can have.

      Justice John? only when it is for those you say must have justice. How about those murdered and raped and killed by illegals. Where is there Justice for All John?

    • Dana says:

      Yes, it does, in a fashion. Foreign citizens are subject to our laws while within our borders, but we have every right to deny them entrance, or to deport them if they should manage to sneak in. But we needn’t, and shouldn’t, consider whether they will enjoy liberty or justice outside of our borders.

    • formwiz says:

      I would say not.

      That’s why we have immigration, deportation, and denaturalization laws.

    Our esteemed host quoted:

    Emphasis mine.

    The cockamamie notion that the court would apply ‘international law’ to an American legal decision is repugnant.

  3. formwiz says:

    Invoking the UN Charter is a little iffy (sounds like the panel that heard the case was Lefty-heavy) since most member countries violate it on a regular basis. That said, we are signatories to the UN Charter, but how bound we are to it in law is up for grabs.

    I doubt we invoke it often.

    Unless the Lefties have no real option under US law.

    • Kye says:

      Leftists will invoke anything as long as it gets them what they want. Hell, they have 80% of the country believing “The New Colossus” is America’s immigration policy already.

      Trump 2020 America for Americans. All others need screening.

  4. formwiz says:

    For the record, the panel was two Clinton judges against a Reagan judge.

    So much for Willie being a “moderate”.
