Asylum seekers treatment before Ninth CircuitThe Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday heard arguments over the Trump administration’s policy requiring some asylum seekers to stay in Mexico while their cases are under review.

The panel of three judges was unclear during the hearing as to whether they will uphold or strike down the preliminary injunction blocking the policy, which District Judge Richard Seeborg, an Obama appointee, issued earlier this month. The appeals court issued a stay on that injunction while it considers the Trump administration's appeal of Seeborg's ruling.

The judges questioned Deputy Assistant Attorney General Scott Stewart about how the federal government determines which asylum applicants are subject to the policy — sometimes referred to as “Remain in Mexico” — and which are not.
