From Trump-Era To Now: The Asylum Rule Saga Continues

The Biden administration’s Circumvention of Lawful Pathways rule faced a legal challenge from a coalition of left-wing groups who argued that it restricted the right to seek asylum and was similar to a previously struck-down Trump-era transit ban. Judge Jon Tigar initially blocked the rule but delayed its implementation for 14 days to allow the administration to appeal.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals granted a temporary stay, preventing the judge’s order from taking effect while the case is ongoing. However, a Trump-appointed judge dissented, comparing the Biden rule to a trendy baby born from the union of Trump-era rules. The ruling may help deter a potential surge of migrants at the southern border, but concerns remain.
