White House to Appeal Ruling Blocking Trump's 'Remain in Mexico' Migration Plan

TIJUANA MEXICO- NOVEMBER 24 Members of the 'migrant caravan' wait in line to receive breakfast outside a temporary shelter set up for members of the caravan

"The court strongly rejected the Trump administration's unprecedented and illegal policy of forcing asylum-seekers to return to Mexico without hearing their claims", said Judy Rabinovitz, deputy director of the ACLU's Immigrants' Rights Project, who argued the case.

On Monday, US federal Judge Richard Seeborg issued a preliminary injunction to block the Trump administration's "Remain in Mexico" migration policy.

"People are traveling across hemispheres to attempt to illegally enter the US, using the same pathways as the Central Americans", he said.

The administration is allowed to separate children under certain circumstances including the health and welfare of the child and a parent's criminal history; this is why children were separated under Obama.

Family separations were the exception before Trump made them the rule.

Despite the low success rate, many potential asylum seekers spend months or years living in the USA while awaiting their court date.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House says President Donald Trump "will do whatever it takes" to protect Americans after a judge blocked the administration's policy of returning asylum seekers to Mexico to await an immigration hearing.

The CBP said it apprehended 92,607 individuals, 53,077 of which are family units, 30,555 are single adults, and 8,975 are unaccompanied children.

Family separation was a direct result of the "zero-tolerance" policy change ordered by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions in April of 2018. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., a senior member of the Judiciary committee, said she plans to introduce a bill that would beef up immigration courts to reduce a huge backlog of cases and prohibit separations of migrant families.

The border slowdowns have occurred after Trump late last month threatened to close the frontier if Mexico did not halt a surge in undocumented migrants reaching the United States.

Trump and Shanahan did not say how many more troops might be sent to the border.

"I wish the press would accurately report it", Trump said, "but of course they won't".

Then the president said this: "Our military, don't forget, can't act like a military would act because if they got a little rough everybody would go insane".

The CBP numbers released Tuesday showed that 265,949 migrants from the three "Northern Triangle" countries in Central America were among the 361,087 migrants apprehended at the southern USA border in the first six months of fiscal 2019, about the same number as for all of fiscal 2018. Bad people are coming up. Authorities were expecting to prevent 100,000 people, mostly families, from crossing the southern border last month, the most in 12 years.

The influx raises questions about whether the administration may have inadvertently encouraged migrants to travel to the US because of zero-tolerance.

However, the timing and practicalities of this were unclear.

Trump also accused Obama of building "cages" that he thought were "very inappropriate".

Trump is likely referring to 2014 photos, taken by The Associated Press, that some liberal activists circulated online previous year and falsely tying the photos to Trump.

"In my 30 years as an agent, I have never witnessed the conditions we are now facing on the Southwest border", said Rodolfo Karisch, chief patrol agent for the Border Patrol's Rio Grande Valley sector.

"You know it. We all know it". "If you are part of a family, if you bring a child, you will be released".

Cecilia Munoz, President Obama's Director of the Domestic Policy Council told NPR a year ago that in 2014, amid a surge in unaccompanied minors from Central America, U.S. officials were strained in trying to process the children quickly.
