Fed Appeals Court Stops Judge's Order To Hold Up Trump's Caravan Asylum Policy!!!

I guess all it took was President Trump floating the moving the illegal caravan asylum seekers to sanctuary cities for the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision to be reversed.

SPECIAL OFFER: Free Trump 2020 Hat While Supplies Last

Earlier in the week, a federal judge on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decided that Trump's policy to send "asylum seekers back to Mexico until their cases could be heard" should be blocked. Trump then floated the idea of moving these illegals to Democrat-led sanctuary cities, and now this new decision appears out of the blue from a federal appeals wipes out the earlier week's decision.

The arguments from the Democrats to block Trump's approach is ironic and telling because Democrats always try to tell us how safe Mexico is and how dangerous the U.S. is from guns- see how their arguments change depending on the progressive policy they try to advance?

A federal appeals court put a judge's order on hold Friday shortly before it would have stopped the Trump administration from forcing asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their cases move through U.S. courts.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals temporarily blocked the lower court ruling from taking effect. The three-judge panel set a Tuesday deadline for civil liberties groups to submit arguments on why the asylum policy should be on hold and a Wednesday deadline for the government to argue why it should remain in place.

Judge Richard Seeborg in San Francisco ruled Monday to halt the unprecedented change to the U.S. asylum system while the groups' lawsuit moves forward. He said the policy violates U.S. law by failing to evaluate dangers migrants face in Mexico.

The government called the ruling erroneous and said it endangers the public during a humanitarian crisis at the southern border. It wants the 9th Circuit to keep the policy in place while the lawsuit is litigated, which is expected to take months and possibly years. [Associated Press]

Good call. The justice dept should let Congress and the executive branch handle this. Immigration administration is not in their powers, doctrine or area of any training and expertise.

Fleeing poverty and gang violence, the reasons cited in the article, are not valid legal reasons to seek asylum. If Mexico is so dangerous, why did they willingly walk across it on their journey to ask for asylum in America? Is it perhaps because they were told there was no chance America would turn them away, that they’d be let in no questions asked?

The sad thing is some argue it’s unfair for them to stay in Mexico because they may fear for their safety. It wasn’t too much of a concern given the fact they decided to walk all those miles and spend all those days tracking across Mexico. What’s worse is Mexico is finally starting to say enough is enough. Soon they are going to shut it down on their southern border too!

The main reason for Trump's policy is to respond to the southern border crisis that has overwhelmed the ability of border officials to detain caravan members. The narrative is that growing numbers of families are fleeing poverty and gang violence in Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. The problem with that is, I didn't know our country had rid itself of poverty and gang violence.

Fact Check:   'Joe Biden Claims ‘We Didn’t Lock People Up In Cages’

CLAIM: Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed, on immigration: “We didn’t lock people up in cages.”

VERDICT: FALSE. The “cages” were built by the Obama-Biden administration.

Univision moderator Jorge Ramos asked Biden at the third Democrat debate at Texas Southern University in Houston, Texas, why Latinos should trust him after the Obama administration continued deporting “undocumented immigrants.”

Biden claimed that the Obama administration’s policies were more humane than those of President Donald Trump: “We didn’t lock people up in cages,” he said.

In fact, the “cages” were built by the Obama administration to deal with a surge of unaccompanied minors who crossed the border illegally in 2014.

Originally, the Obama administration was “warehousing” children — literally — in overwhelmed Border Patrol facilities. Breitbart News broke the story of the surge, which was partly triggered by Obama’s policy of allowing illegal alien children who entered the country as minors to stay in the country (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA).

The “cages” are chain-link enclosures in Border Patrol processing facilities that are meant to protect children from adults in custody. They are not permanent accommodations.

In mid-2018, as the Trump administration began enforcing a “zero tolerance” policy that stopped the “catch-and-release” policy of letting illegal aliens go after they were arrested. Detaining adults and children meant that children had to be processed separately; the enclosures prevented adults from harming children.

As Breitbart News reported at the time, children were not housed in “cages.” They were processed and then taken to shelters, where they were given medical care, toiletries, education, recreation, and counseling, and where staff attempted to find relatives or sponsors to whom they could be released.

Democrats began tweeting images of “kids in cages” to condemn the Trump administration. Journalists, too, shared those images.

One problem: they were taken during the Obama administration.

Public outrage at the images led President Trump to end the policy, and require families to be detained together.

Democrats keep repeating the mistake, however: in July, they had to delete a tweet that used an image from the Obama era and cited the “inhumane treatment” of children by the Trump administration.

Republicans argue that not detaining illegal aliens is actually the cruel policy, because it encourages migrants to undertake a dangerous journey, often guided by cartels and smugglers.

As Breitbart News’ Alana Mastrangelo noted recently:

But what’s worse than “cages,” however, are reports of migrant children also being handed over to human traffickers during the Obama administration — while Biden was vice president — according to the New York Times. Between October 2013 and July 2015 alone, nearly 80,000 unaccompanied children from Central American countries were detained by U.S. authorities.

It remains unclear how many of the tens of thousands of children were handed over to human traffickers — including sex traffickers — during that span of nearly two years, as those cases are reportedly not tracked.

“Others were ransomed by the very smugglers to whom their families paid thousands of dollars to sneak them into the United States,” reported the New York Times in 2015, during Obama’s presidency and Biden’s vice presidency. “Some lost limbs during the journey or found themselves sold into sexual slavery.”

Biden told voters in South Carolina last month that he would close all border detention facilities, guaranteeing that the migrant flow would continue.
