A U.S. federal appeals court in San Francisco has blocked the Trump administration's Migrant Protection Protocols policy, which called for sending asylum seekers back to Mexico to await their U.S. hearings. The measure, also known as the "Remain in Mexico" policy, went into effect in January 2019.

Critics suggested that the Trump policy violated the international law known as non-refoulement, which prohibits asylum seekers having to return to the dangerous places they reportedly fled. The White House denied those claims.

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 to uphold a lower-court’s injunction against the policy.
