Judge blocks Trump's asylum policy but delays enforcement

US President Donald Trump smiles at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu right after signing a proclamation formally recognizing Israel's sovereignty over the Golan Heights in the Diplomatic Reception Room at the White House in Washington Mo

A federal judge issued an order temporarily blocking the Trump administration from implementing and expanding its "Remain in Mexico" policy, which requires certain non-Mexican migrants who claim asylum at ports of entry along the border to wait in Mexico while their requests are processed.

The policy lacks sufficient protections to ensure migrants don't face "undue risk to their lives or freedom" in Mexico, the judge said. The Trump administration has bumped up against legal restrictions and court rulings that have hamstrung many of its major efforts to remake border security.

Carlineo's defense attorney declined to comment on the charges Friday.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen resigned on Sunday amid the administration's growing frustration and bitterness over the number of Central American families crossing the southern border, two people familiar with the decision said.

"They're hearing that our border is open, they're hearing that we have a porous border, they know because they listen to the news also, they know that Democrats in Congress are not working with the president to secure the border", the Ohio Republican told Fox Business' "Mornings With Maria." "We don't love the fact that he's carrying the flag of Honduras or Guatemala or El Salvador, only to say he's petrified to be in his country".

The lawsuit argues the Trump administration is violating United States law by failing to adequately evaluate the dangers that migrants face in Mexico.

Mr. Carlineo is being detained pending a court hearing on April. 10, 2019 at 10:30 a.m.in front of U.S. District Judge Marian W. Payson.

Seeborg said in his ruling that "further procedural protections would be required to conform to the government's acknowledged obligation to ensure aliens are not returned to unduly risky circumstances".

Seeborg's order on Monday will likely further incense Mr. Trump, who has repeatedly accused US immigration laws and judicial rulings of hampering his agenda.

Seeborg agreed, saying the "plain language" of the law supported that interpretation.

Trump says, "The asylum program is a scam". The decision to name an immigration officer to the post reflects Trump's priority for a sprawling department founded to combat terrorism following the September 11 attacks.

"Some of the roughest people you've ever seen, people that look like they should be fighting for the UFC", he said about Ultimate Fighting Championship mixed martial arts promotion company. How is it, who's going to win the race?

Charanya Krishnaswami, of Amnesty International USA, called the policy "cruel and irresponsible" in a statement.

His administration began to implement it earlier this year, hoping that making migrants wait outside the USA - thereby denying them the chance to gain a foothold here - would discourage some of the Central Americans rushing the border right now from coming.

The President appeared to not care, as he coached the Border Patrol agents on committing an apparent illegal act.

The launch of the policy followed months of delicate talks between the US and Mexico.
