Although President Trump is doing wonders in terms of reshaping the federal judiciary, don’t forget that Barack Obama had his fair share of appointed judges, too.
The former president is still getting small wins to this day.
For example, an Obama-appointed judge blocked POTUS Trump’s policy sending asylum seekers back to Mexico while they wait for an immigration judge to hear their case.
From AP News:
A U.S. judge decided Monday to block the Trump administration’s policy of returning asylum seekers to Mexico as they wait for an immigration court to hear their cases, but the ruling is on hold for several days.
However, something just happened.
The far-left Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has now ruled in the Trump administration’s favor.
Asylum seekers CAN be sent back to Mexico.
From New York Post:
The Trump administration can keep sending asylum seekers back to Mexico after an appeals court temporarily reversed a ruling that halted the policy.
The decision from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals came Friday as the asylum policy was set to end on Monday night. The government told the court that the U.S. is facing “a humanitarian and security crisis” at the southern border and needs the policy to deal with surging number of refugees, Reuters reported.
Friday’s two-paragraph decision marked a rare ruling from the 9th Circuit in favor of Trump, who has criticized the court for blocking his immigration policy in previous cases.
President Trump has had it up to here with Mexico when it comes to immigration.
He’s tired of seeing America’s southern neighbor allow migrants from Central America to stroll through Mexico and into the United States.
Obviously, Trump is not alone.
However, 45 has the authority to do something about it.
POTUS is now warning that he may shut down the southern border entirely.
Mexico is doing NOTHING to help stop the flow of illegal immigrants to our Country. They are all talk and no action. Likewise, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador have taken our money for years, and do Nothing. The Dems don’t care, such BAD laws. May close the Southern Border!
A new caravan is apparently forming in Honduras. Reportedly, 20,000 or so people are set to take part in the march up to America.
They call it the “mother of all caravans.”
Without actually saying how will Mexico respond to it, Sánchez Cordero warned today about the “mother of all caravans” forming in Honduras https://t.co/GzzZZLWbHp

@M_OlgaSCordero announces that MX will no longer give large numbers of humanitarian visas to migrants crossing through the country. Says MX will continue to give worker / tourist visas that keep migrants in southern Mexico and enforce migratory laws for those traveling north. https://t.co/lZRlKxBt7i
