Court won’t immediately stop wait-in-Mexico asylum policy


By JULIE WATSON and BRIAN MELLEY 28 minutes ago


SAN DIEGO (AP) — A federal appeals court put a judge’s order on hold Friday shortly before it would have stopped the Trump administration from forcing asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their cases move through U.S. courts.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals temporarily blocked the lower court ruling from taking effect. The three-judge panel set a Tuesday deadline for civil liberties groups to submit arguments on why the asylum policy should be on hold and a Wednesday deadline for the government to argue why it should remain in place.

Judge Richard Seeborg in San Francisco ruled Monday to halt the unprecedented change to the U.S. asylum system while the groups’ lawsuit moves forward. He said the policy violates U.S. law by failing to evaluate dangers migrants face in Mexico.
