HOUSTON (AP) — A federal judge barred the Trump administration on Monday from refusing asylum to immigrants who cross the southern border illegally.

U.S. District Judge Jon S. Tigar 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 Donald Trump issued the ban this month in response to the caravans of migrants that have started to arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Trump issued a proclamation on Nov. 9 that said anyone who crossed the southern border would be ineligible for asylum. The regulations, which will remain in place for three months absent a court order, could potentially make it harder for thousands of people who enter the U.S. to avoid deportation.

“Individuals are entitled to asylum if they cross between ports of entry,” said Baher Azmy, a lawyer for the Center for Constitutional Rights. “It couldn’t be clearer.”

In recent years, tens of thousands of immigrants each year have shown up in the Arizona desert or on the north bank of the Rio Grande in Texas, surrendered to immigration agents and requested asylum. The Department of Homeland Security estimates around 70,000 people a year claim asylum between official ports of entry.

Trump has argued that the recent caravans are a threat to national security.

Around 3,000 people from the first of the caravans have arrived in Tijuana, Mexico, across the border from San Diego, California. U.S. Customs and Border Protection said Monday that it closed off northbound traffic for several hours at the San Ysidro crossing. It has also installed movable, wire-topped barriers, apparently to stop a potential mass rush of people.

As of Monday, 107 people detained between official crossings have sought asylum since Trump’s order went into effect, according to DHS, which oversees Customs and Border Protection. Officials didn’t say whether those people’s cases were still progressing through other avenues left to them after the proclamation.

DHS has said it wants asylum seekers at the southern border to appear at an official border crossing. But many border crossings such as San Ysidro already have long wait times. People are often forced to wait in shelters or outdoor camps on the Mexican side, sometimes for weeks.

ACLU lawyer Lee Gelernt said that some people seeking asylum cross between official ports because “they’re in real danger,” either in their countries of origin or in Mexico.

We don’t condone people entering between ports of entry, but Congress has made the decision that if they do, they still need to be allowed to apply for asylum,” he said.

A VIEW FROM THE STREET: "...you displayed a good sense of perspective for...events that had already taken place—as well as accurate insight into those still remaining...." T.R. Harris, THE HUMAN CHRONICLES SAGA. --- Does ex-Private Eye, Jeffrey A. Friedberg, want to be described as, "a serious observer," a "respectable, civil cataloger of the times," or, as a competent gatherer of "polite, intelligent opinion?" He says, "No, because, I'M OLD ENOUGH TO REMEMBER THE REAL AMERICA. And, I want to get a Message out---past the commie liars infesting the corrupt MSM and political ruling class. To me, the era of polite chit-chat is over—so I might not be polite. BEWARE of democrat ('magical') distractions and red herrings. Because it seems to me that Democrat politicians are mere, scum liberals, lusting for personalized power, wealth, dominance, Control, and the concomitant destruction of America. They are natural-born liars, thieves, murderers, and no-good, rotten bastards."

  1. Great post from Jeffery …
    One of our biggest problems is the ACLU and Judges who think that illegal entry is not relative to law and that anyone one in the world is protected by the Constitution. It would be my humble suggestion that we ban both the ACLU and corrupt globalist judges.
