California Judges Hand Trump Rare Court Win By Allowing Return Of Migrants To Mexico

It might be a sign of the apocalypse, but a panel of judges in the Ninth Circuit has temporarily blocked a California judge’s order to halt a Trump administration policy to allow the return of some asylum seekers to Mexico while they await their court dates – handing the administration a rare victory in the courts.

According to the Associated Press, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issued a temporary stay Friday, blocking a ruling by San Francisco Judge Richard Seeborg, who delivered a temporary injunction on Monday blocking the policy while challenges filed by civil liberties groups moved forward.

Seeborg justified the injunction by arguing that the policy failed to take into account the dangers that migrants might face in Mexico.

The three-judge panel set a Tuesday deadline for civil liberties groups to submit arguments for why the policy should be discontinued while the issue winds its way through the courts. The panel set a Wednesday deadline for the White House to argue why the policy should remain in effect.

The government asked the panel to reconsider the injunction, arguing that Seeborg’s argument was made in error, and that keeping the migrants in the US, where federal facilities are overflowing, forcing the government to release more asylum seekers amid an unprecedented surge in border-crossings. More than 100,000 migrants crossed into the US via the southern border in March – a 12-year high.

The circuit court managed to block the injunction before it took effect, meaning there was no interruption to the Trump administration’s plans to start returning some migrants to Mexico, according to the AP.

Though the decision doesn’t mean the policy will be upheld indefinitely – it could still ultimately be ruled unconstitutional – but it does underscore how San Francisco judges have been a persistent thorn in the administration’s side when it comes to immigration policy, contributing to the White House’s six percent win rate on legal challenges surrounding its policies.

Panic

At a time when appropriations authorized by Trump’s national emergency declaration appear to be moving forward in spite of a flurry of legal challenges, one can’t help but wonder if this marks a turning point in the administration’s struggle to implement its immigration agenda, as the crisis at the border – which Democrats declared “fake” as recently as February – has now been widely acknowledged, as municipal officials from border cities like McAllen, Texas, which have strained under the influx of migrants requiring shelter, medical care and other services, have warned of a “system-wide collapse.”

  1. WHAT THE FUC* IS WRONG WITH YOU IDIOT JUDGES ESPECIALLY JUDGE SEEBORG THEY ARE ILLEGAL. THEY ARE BREAKING THE LAW AND IF YOU JUDGES SIDE WITH THESE LAW BREAKERS YOU ARE BREAKING THE LAW AND YOU SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM THE BENCH, AND GO BACK TO SCHOOL BUST OUT YOUR WEBSTERS DICTIONARY AND LOOK UP THE MEANING OF THE WORD ILLEGAL!!!!!!

    1. You are perfectly correct. There isn’t a single thing about this whole invasion that is not illegal. Deport the moron judges with these illegals. Let them figure out another country to ruin.

  2. Some one needs to set these judges down and explain to them what illegal means. They apparently do not understand what it means or don’t care.
    I have noticed the new word for these illegals are migrants, they have dropped the word illegal. They used to be “wetbacks’, Bad word, so it was changed to illegal alien, another bad word, so it was changed to undocumented worker, bad word, they didn’t want jobs, just freebees, change word to illegal immigrant, changed again to just migrate. No matter what you call them if someone comes into your home, uninvited, he is an invader and should be treated as such. This country is our home. Enough said.

  3. Illegal means nothing to the Liberal Socialist Democrat Party !
    With the help from gutless Republicans to boot!
    Americans need to continue to call their Senators/Representatives and demand to stand up to the corruption in this country ! (202) 224-3121…DO IT …NOW !!!

  4. As soon as the Ninth Circuit got word that the President was going to present sanctuary cities with sanctuary seekers that had made it across the border and had to be released they changed their mind about how to handle them, funny isn’t it.

  5. These liberal judges are not upholding the laws of the U.S. – they are ruling however they feel, which is to allow illegal alien invaders to remain in our country. But let some illegal alien invader family break into one of the liberal judge’s homes and decide to stay, that judge would be literally screaming for law enforcement to remove them. Double standards, for sure.

  6. HAHAHA!!!!!

    The President said he would put the ILLEGALS into CA.’s “sanctuary cities”–an those liberal pieces of garbage are screaming “not in OUR backyard”-

    Liberals are nothing if not a bunch of lying/hypocritical/Fascists.

  7. Of all politicians on the taxpayer payroll , only these are heroes and truly Americans, as per Citizens Against Government Waste. Senators: Jeff Flake, Mike Lee, Rand Paul and Pat Toomey. Representatives: Ken Buck, Ted Budd, Ron DeSantis, Raul Labrador and Tom McClintock. The rest are simply criminal/traitor/corrupt/bureaucrats that allow the illegal invasion while derelicting and power abusing the citizens, breaking the Laws and besmirching the USA sovereignty. To jail they all should go. Period.
