A Federal Judge Declines to Intervene on Trump's New Asylum Policy Pending Another Federal Judge
On November 19, Judge Jon Tigar of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California granted Plaintiffs (Immigrant Organizations) a temporary restraining order against the Trump Administration's new asylum policy- migrants who cross the border illegally are ineligible for asylum. This temporary restraining order is set to expire on December 19 which is when Judge Tigar will hear the Defendant's show cause arguments.
After, the November 19th ruling, the Trump Administration tried unsuccessfully to get the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to stay the Judge's decision and then to have the U.S. Supreme Court hear the case.
Now, Plaintiffs have become unsuccessful in their attempt to get further relief from the Administration's policy in the U.S. District Court for the U.S. District of Columbia as Judge Moss is unwilling to hear the case pending Judge Tigar's decision.
