BREAKING: Obama Appointed Judge Just Blocked Trump's Asylum Ban

Obama appointed U.S. District Court Judge Jon Tigar on Wednesday issued a preliminary injunction against the Trump administration to keep them from enforcing its asylum ban. Tigar had initially blocked the policy before Thanksgiving but the ruling was set to expired on Wednesday, The Hill reported. 


According to Tigar, there lacks consistency between immigration laws. 

The harms to those seeking asylum are also even clearer, and correspondingly the public interest more plainly supports injunctive relief,” he wrote. "Not surprisingly then, the result of the present motion is the same: the Court again concludes that Plaintiffs have established an overwhelming likelihood that the new rule barring asylum is invalid."

The Trump administration appealed Tigar's initial ruling but the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals refused to hear the case. The administration then wanted the Supreme Court to issue an emergency order but that request is still pending. 

A conference is scheduled for Mar. 18.
