Astounding Trump Victory in 9th Circuit on Immigration

As the President would say, “so much winning.” The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has just handed President Trump an astounding victory on his immigration policy. The victory made all that much sweeter, since it was handed to the administration by the usually very liberal 9th Circuit.

The victory just goes to show how important Trump’s judicial appointments have been, and how those have specifically reshaped the former bastion of liberal judicial activism that was the 9th Circuit.

YOU MIGHT LIKE

The newly moderate Court, handed the President a major win last week when it lifted a nationwide injunction on his asylum policy.

On the day of the 9th Circuit’s decision, Obama-appointed U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar in California had reinstated a nationwide halt on the Trump administration’s plan to prevent most migrants from seeking asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border, if they first crossed through another country on the way.

But in an administrative order, that was first reported by Politico, the 9th Circuit rolled Tigar’s ruling right back, saying that for now it should only apply to the confines of the 9th Circuit — which encompasses California, Arizona, Alaska, Hawaii, Montana, Nevada, Idaho, Guam, Oregon and Washington.

The San Francisco-based 9th Circuit now has seven Trump-appointed federal judges — more than any other federal appellate bench. The radical transformation of the court, which has 29 seats, is largely the result of Trump’s push to nominate conservative judges and bypass traditional consultations with Senate Democrats.

Thirteen of the 29 seats are now occupied by GOP-appointed judges. Last year, that number stood at six.

“Thanks to Trump, the liberal 9th Circuit is no longer liberal,” The Washington Post lamented earlier this year.

History of the Asylum Injunction

Judge Tigar first blocked the asylum policy in July, after a lawsuit by groups that help asylum seekers. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals then partially limited the impact of Tigar’s injunction. That meant the policy was blocked in the border states of California and Arizona but not in New Mexico and Texas.

In his ruling Monday, Tigar circled back, and stressed a “need to maintain uniform immigration policy” and found that nonprofit organizations such as Al Otro Lado don’t know where asylum seekers who enter the U.S. will end up living while making their case to remain in the country. Tiger, citing “new evidence,” issued a second nationwide injunction on Sept. 9.

Trump said he disagreed with the judge’s ruling, hours before the 9th Circuit backed him up on the 10th and again limited the injunction.

Newly appointed White House Press Secretary, Stephanie Grisham, said in a statement that a sole judge shouldn’t have the ability to exert such a broad impact on immigration policy, and she noted that the administration’s request to the Supreme Court to set aside the injunction is still pending.

The courts have halted some of Trump’s key policy shifts on immigration, including an earlier version of an asylum ban. The President has prevailed on several fronts after initial legal setbacks, for example, when the Supreme Court recently lifted a freeze on using Pentagon money to build border walls.

People are generally eligible for asylum in the U.S. if they credibly fear return to their home country because they would be persecuted based on race, religion, nationality or membership in a particular social group.

The vast majority of asylum claims are denied, however, and the administration has said the system is being abused as a means of economic and humanitarian relief when it was intended to be used for limited and extraordinary cases.

      The majority American people voted for President Trump. It is rediculess how he is being treated. No other presidents were treated this way. May be it takes a Non-Politician to “Make America Great Again”. He is not my favorite person. But there was no choice which of the 2 candidates to choose. It was either Minnie Mouse or Donald Duck. The Donald wan. Let’s respect him and listen to his ideas. Yes he has his quirks but we all do. He is not talking about legal lmmigrants. There is a difference between legal and illegal. Illegal means we all have to pay their housing, food, health care and what else
      not. I worked hard for the money and I do not want to pay other people’s existance that I don’t know that came here without permission. We have enough of these people already on Welfare who could work but do not want to. Yes there are some that need it but please let this be people that really need it.oh sure a lot will say “I need it”. We are full to the rim. So please let President Trump build the WALL. It would be much cheaper than supporting all these people. Do these countries wherever they come from have any people left?? Please Liberals and Democrats don’t fight the President ! Help him to “Make America Great Again.

    Trumps obvious goals in his immigration policies are to make America white again. Anyone who doesn’t see this or who denies it is very likely thinking along the same lines as our astoundingly bigoted, self interested, piece of sh*t president. How much longer are we going to sit on our butts and watch this maniac destroy
    the country we love? What we know now, as was just this past week uncovered, is that AS PRESIDENT (and not simply as the candidate for the presidency that Robert Mueller investigated and whose months upon months of work was thwarted by Trump’s legal department as well as his specifically appointed Justice Department) Trump committed crimes, WHILE IN OFFICE, that are indictable, and punishable by long prison terms. As expected, Trump and his toadies denied what is clear to anyone with a brain that there was any wrong-doing and went so far as to block any and all details from getting to Congress. It appears that impeachment is our country’s only way to get this megalomaniac out of office and out of our lives. If, God forbid, he is elected to as second term all of his crimes and wrong doings that have so damaged our country and our government will go unpunished because of our Statute of Limitations. THIS IS THE REASON WHY TRUMPS IS SO FU*KING DESPARATE TO WIN REELECTION AT ANY AND ALL COSTS. WE CANNOT LET THIS HAPPEN……..NO WAY, NO HOW.

          One of the most dangerous illusions one can have is that you own the country and that anyone who disagrees with you doesn’t belong. We used to get “love it or leave it” all the time in the 60s but every citizen in America has just as much right to participate. I will even say that right now anybody that BLINDLY supports this EXTREMELY corrupt potus is NOT as patriotic as someone with their eyes open looking out for WE THE PEOPLE.
          The situation with Trump right now is not unlike the times with McCarthy? Look up Margaret Case Smith and her famous speech to the Senate in 1950. It is what the country needs NOW.

      Gee Dr. Richard, what an idiotic response to this issue. Bottom line it’s all about illegal immigration, period. As a resident of California, having lived in Los Angeles and currently the Bay Area iv’e seen and continue to see and deal with the results of this issue: crime, higher taxes to pay for all the public assistance programs doled out to non citizens by the liberal socialists running this formerly clean, affordable and prosperous golden state into the ground. And when a US citizen who has to pay for all this BS needs public assistance, they get the finger behind their backs ‘the programs’s are broke etc’.. Thankfully the American people are fed up, have had enough crime, demise and having to pay higher and higher taxes to pay for all this BS and are finally waking up to this. By the way, a major portion of Hispanics here are well behind immigration reform as when they came here, they became US citizens and didn’t get handouts upon arrival. It’s not about keeping America white, it’s about securing the borders. Every sovereign nation has secure borders and immigration laws, why not us? FYI: As the grandson of immigrants who came to America, the right way mind you, my grandparents didn’t get a thing handed to them when they arrived here. They learned,English, got jobs and became US citizens They realized the great opportunity America gave them for better lives.

      Dr Richard Have you not seen the statistic of the races? The white race is the minority now, there’s no way America can ever be a nation of whites and it never was. White people are removing themselves by only having one or two children while black people have 4 or 5. and Muslims braged the men had several wife’s and some fathered 45 children. So it is not likely the white people will ever take over the world.

      That’s such BS. If these migrants were white, Trump would still block them. It’s not about color, it’s about fairness, safety and legality. What’s sad is that Democrats want illegals here because they are the closest thing to slaves that are available to your corrupt elites…they work for very little until they get fake documents. Democrats look away as women are raped and children are sold over the border. They only care about power and election of their oppressive rulers.
      I think it’s so interesting that Democrats support islam though. Nevermind that it’s a racist, sexist, homophobic cult…

    One of the the most dangerous precedents that has been set in recent years has been virtually turning foreign policy decisions, immigration policy and other National interests over to judges by taking every decision made that political activists don’t agree with to court. And for some reason they are allowed one way or another to judge shop for the ones most likely to decide in their favor. I don’t think we want lawyers and judges that no one has elected to anything in most cases deciding national policies and overturning presidential decisions!!!

    Dr Richard,
    Only you dimwitcrats see it that way. Trump is trying to protect this country from a national security standpoint. Amongst those entering from the south border are not just brown people from Latin America. They are also brown people from the Middle East who seek to do us harm. In case you don’t know, they are called terrorists. There are already more than 2,000 known sympathizers being watched and at least another 2,000 not yet discovered in the US just waiting for the signal to attack.
    Anyone entering through legitimate legal means are welcome no matter where they come from. Just enter legally!!
    And if you can’t understand that then you are the bigoted one here! And you can’t call me a whitey because I’m not! I’m brown and believe in the rule of law and the sanctity of our borders. Without borders, we are not a country!!
    You are obviously a bigoted man of color!!

    Good morning Dr:Richard let me give you some very good advice. STOP watching the fake news and listening to. MSNBC, CNN and THE VIEW. You sound like your losing your mind. The economy is doing great, more people are working jobs, people have more money in their PAYCHECKS. According to The Department of Labor since President Trump took office more than 400,000 African Americans found work, simpatico Black President could not do in 8 years in office. More than 3 million people have been taken off of Welfare and put back to work. More than 40 million dollars spent on the Russian and Trump by Robert Muller. Only to find NOTHING. The more Robert Muller and his 13 democratic investigators to tie President Trump to the Russians . All they discovered was the ties President Obama and Secretary Hillary Clinton has to the fake info they fed to the news media MSNBC and CNN. Education is the greatest freedom we have. If you keep listening to the fake news, you will never know the TRUTH . The truth will set you FREE.

Ours’ is very loose even with Trumps proposals compared to places like India. Try becoming a permanent resident of India and see what happens. You can’t marry in there like you can over here. You have to have close relatives that were born over there. I don’t see anyone calling Indians racist?
