US court temporarily halts Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy

A federal appeals court on Friday temporarily halted a Trump administration policy to make asylum seekers wait in Mexico while their cases wind through US immigration courts.

The same court decided to keep another major change on hold, one that denies asylum to anyone who enters the US irregularly from Mexico.

A three-judge panel of the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on the two policies that are central to President Donald Trump’s asylum crackdown, dealing the administration a major setback, even if it proves temporary.
