Judge halts Trump administration’s ‘remain in Mexico’ policy

Mexican asylum seekersA federal judge today halted the Trump administration’s “remain in Mexico” policy, which forces certain non-Mexican asylum seekers to wait in Mexico during their court proceedings.

The plaintiffs — a group of asylum seekers and organizations represented by the American Civil Liberties Union — argued the policy violates U.S. asylum law, international treaty obligations and federal regulatory requirements.

In a 27-page order, San Francisco-based U.S. District Judge Richard Seeborg issued a preliminary injunction against the policy, a decision that represents another legal setback for the Trump administration’s hard-line immigration agenda. The order will take effect Friday at 8 p.m. EDT (5 p.m. PDT), which will provide the administration time to seek a stay from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit.
