Truth Behind the Headlines
A federal judge in San Francisco on Monday barred the Trump administration from refusing asylum to immigrants who cross the southern border illegally, likely prompting a legal challenge from the White House.
Trump issued a proclamation on Nov. 9 that said anyone who crossed the southern border would be ineligible for asylum.
U.S. District Judge Jon S. Tigar, who was nominated by President Obama in 2012 to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, issued a temporary restraining order after hearing arguments in San Francisco.
The request was made by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Constitutional Rights, which quickly sued after President Trump issued the ban this month in response to the caravans of migrants that have started to arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border.
Baher Azmy, a lawyer for the Center for Constitutional Rights, said, "Individuals are entitled to asylum if they cross between ports of entry. It couldn't be clearer."
What the MSM and the Liberal talking heads are failing to tell you is this: The USA receives more than 70,000 asylum applications per year. The "Proclamation on Nov. 9" that President Trump signed is BARRING ILLEGAL people that cross our border's OUTSIDE a port of entry - forgoing the CORRECT and LAWFUL process.
Homeland Security officials say there are currently 6,000 people in Tijuana waiting to be processed at the San Ysidro border crossing, with more on the way.
During a conference call with reporters Monday afternoon, homeland security officials said "most of the caravan members are not women and children" and that more than 500 criminals are traveling with the group that has amassed on the other side of a San Diego border crossing.
Another portion of information missing from Headline New's, even from Fox News, is that the order this judge signed is not now, or currently, law or enforceable. Trump's administration has already filed for repeal, causing a stalemate at this time.
