The Supreme Court gave the Trump administration a major win on Wednesday, upholding a policy that requires anyone seeking asylum to apply in a third country first.
Fox News reported that on Monday, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals had ended a nationwide injunction against the policy but allowed it to stay in effect within its jurisdiction, which includes the border states of California and Arizona.
The 9th Circuit’s decision partially overruled a decision by San Francisco-based federal district court Judge Jon Tigar, who had issued a nationwide injunction in July.
The Supreme Court’s 7-2 ruling is not a final decision on the merits of the case but does prevent any lower court from issuing an injunction against the policy while the litigation proceeds in the 9th Circuit and other jurisdictions.
BIG United States Supreme Court WIN for the Border on Asylum! https://t.co/9Ka00qK1Ob
