Court blocks Trump asylum policyOn Monday, the United States District Court for the Northern District of California ruled to reinstate a nationwide injunction on a Trump administration policy that would have blocked most asylum applications for migrants transiting through other countries on their way to the U.S.-Mexico border.

"The question now before the court is whether those harms can be addressed by any relief short of a nationwide injunction. The answer is that they cannot," wrote District Judge Jon Tigar in his order in East Bay v. Barr granting a nationwide injunction on the policy.

Tigar noted the need for "uniform immigration policy" and potential administration issues if the injunction were only limited to a part of the country, as the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals had ruled in August.
