9 April 2019

President Donald Trump has blasted the judge who said his administration can’t make asylum seekers wait in Mexico before their court hearing, saying it is ‘so unfair’.

Trump tweeted on Monday night: ‘A 9th Circuit Judge just ruled that Mexico is too dangerous for migrants. So unfair to the U.S. OUT OF CONTROL!’

He launched the policy at the nation’s busiest border crossing in San Diego in January in a bid to stop immigrants wanting asylum being released into the U.S. before their immigration court appearance.

Judge Richard Seeborg in San Francisco granted a request by civil liberties groups to halt the practice while their lawsuit moves forward. He put the decision on hold until Friday to give the White House a chance to appeal.

The lawsuit on behalf of 11 asylum seekers from Central America and legal advocacy groups says the Trump administration is violating U.S. law by failing to adequately evaluate the dangers that migrants face in Mexico.

It comes as growing numbers of families are fleeing poverty and gang violence in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

President Donald Trump’s administration says the policy responds to a crisis at the southern border that has overwhelmed the ability of immigration officials to detain migrants.

The lawsuit also accuses Homeland Security and immigration officials of depriving migrants of their right to apply for asylum by making it difficult or impossible for them to do so.

Under the new policy, asylum seekers are not guaranteed interpreters or lawyers and don’t get to argue to a judge that they face the potential of persecution or torture if they are sent back to Mexico, Judy Rabinovitz, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union, said at a March court hearing.

Seeborg appeared skeptical of the lawsuit’s argument that the administration misapplied a U.S. law that allows the return of immigrants to Mexico.
