Democrats have scored a major victory in the fight against Donald Trump.
As usual, it involved the court.
And this judge left Donald Trump red with rage after one massive defeat.
District Court Judge Jon Tigar outraged the President this summer when he issued a nationwide injunction blocking new rules to limit asylum seekers from entering the United States unless they first applied for asylum in another country.
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals narrowed the injunction to only apply to California and Arizona.
In a rouge and lawless move, Tigar overrode the Ninth Circuit and reinstated his nationwide ban on the new asylum rules.
U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar issued the order after considering new evidence presented in an ongoing lawsuit of the third-country asylum ban.
The decision to block the policy nationwide for the second time comes after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit in August narrowed an earlier injunction by Tigar. The 9th Circuit’s decision kept the policy blocked in California and Arizona, but allowed it to be implemented in Texas and New Mexico.
The administration in July issued a new fast-track asylum regulation to prevent migrants from seeking asylum in the U.S. if they first pass through another country and don’t apply for protection in that nation. The measure effectively cut off asylum protections for Central American migrants who travel to the U.S.-Mexico border from their home country.
Tigar, an appointee of former President Barack Obama, had previously ruled to block the ban temporarily in July after he found the regulation was likely invalid because it conflicted with federal asylum laws. Tigar had also blocked an earlier Trump asylum ban that barred asylum seekers who cross the border between ports of entry.
The courts are the centerpiece of the Democrat Party’s “resistance” to President Trump.
Liberals know they can always count on hand-picked Obama judges to deliver “home cooked” rulings to thwart the President.
Tigar’s outrageous decision shows the underhanded strategy still has legs.
