The Supreme court of the United States delivered a victory to President Trump on Wednesday, to force his administration, the “Mexico” asylum policy as the litigation around it more.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals had said a week earlier that they would block the policy, which extends into Arizona and California, the two States concerned, where its authority. The Trump administration then turned to the Supreme court for relief.


“The application for stay presented to Justice Kagan and by her referred to court is granted, and the district court of the 8. April 2019, the issuance of a preliminary injunction is stayed by the timely filing and disposition of a petition for the design of the appointment process treat will,” the Supreme court said in an order noted that justice Sonia Sotomayor against the Trump administration’s stay application.

The high court action came a day before the lower court was taken to have effect. Instead, the “in Mexico” policy remains in effect while a lawsuit plays challenging it in the courts.

The justice Ministry responded on Wednesday with the words of the high court to return to “the ability of the government to manage the Southwest border and to work cooperatively with the Mexican government to combat illegal immigration.”

“We are grateful that the Supreme court granted a stay that prevents a state court said an injunction of impairment of the security of our borders and the integrity of our immigration system,” a DOJ spokesman.


The policy, officially known as the protection of migrants protocols (MPP) requires of the people who apply for asylum to remain on the southern border in Mexico, while the US considers their cases. Several organizations sued the administration, claiming that the MPP is in violation of Federal law, which sets standards on how asylum seekers are treated.


“The Court of Appeals clearly this Directive is declared to be prohibited. The Supreme Court should, as well,” said Judy Rabinovitz, American Civil Liberties Union lawyer who represents asylum-seekers and immigrant advocacy groups in the protective case. “Asylum-seekers face serious risk of irreversible damage every day this rotten policy remains in force.”

The administration had argued that thousands of immigrants rush the border would not, if the high court has to step in.

The Supreme court of justice of the order noted that the stay applies only to review during the administration files a petition for the Supreme court, the Ninth Circuit’s decision. The court should refuse the stay will be lifted, and the policy has again blocked. Should the court decide to hear the case, the stay will remain in effect until the court take hands down a decision.

Approximately 60,000 asylum-seekers have been sent back to wait in Mexico until their cases wind their way through the clogged U.S. immigration courts, since the Directive was introduced in January, 2019 in San Diego and later expanded across the border.
