Court ruling allows Trump asylum restrictions in Texas and New Mexico

Court ruling allows Trump asylum restrictions in Texas and New Mexico | 16 Aug 2019 | The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday ruled partially in favor of the Trump administration in its attempt to impose an asylum ban, appearing to approve the ban for those who cross into Texas and New Mexico. The court said in a ruling that it denied the government's broader request to reverse a previous decision blocking the policy, but upheld the injunction for states on the border inside of its jurisdiction. The 9th Circuit runs along the West Coast and includes the border states of California and Arizona, so the ruling appears to clear the way for the policy to be applied in New Mexico and Texas, the areas that see the most border crossings from Mexico and Central America. About 46,500 people crossed the U.S. border in South Texas’s Rio Grande Valley and the region around El Paso, Texas, in July alone, PBS reported.
