FEDERAL COURTS ISSUE DIFFERENT RULINGS ON TRUMP ADMINISTRATION’S EFFORT TO SIGNIFICANTLY RESTRICT ASYLUM PROTECTION

Written by: Taher Kameli, Esq. The Federal judiciary has frequently been relied on to block the anti-immigration policies of the Trump administration.  However, as with any litigation, there is no guarantee as to how any Federal judge will rule on any specific immigration law issue.  This point was made abundantly clear on July 24 when 2 Federal courts issued different rulings on the Trump administration’s effort to significantly restrict asylum protection for migrants. These 2 cases involved lawsuits against the new rule of the Trump administration (published in the Federal Register to be effective July 16)
