Supreme Court Enforces New Trump Rule Denying Immigrants Asylum In US

Donald J. Trump

The nation's highest court settled what became a contentious back-and-forth that highlighted how federal judges have increasingly utilized nationwide injunctions to impose their will.

"Our policy of refuge, of asylum is a tradition in Mexico", he said.

The Supreme Court's ruling temporarily allows the policy to go into effect while the Trump administration deals with other legal challenges against the requirement.

As the New York Times reported, the Supreme Court's ruling will allow the Trump administration to "enforce new rules that generally forbid asylum applications from migrants who have traveled through another country on their way to the United States without being denied asylum in that country".

He called the policy a "very significant change in the circumstances". "I trust in God that the court's decision does not affect me". Mexican Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard said he had meetings scheduled Thursday to evaluate what effect it will have on the country.

Many asylum seekers denied refuge under the new policy will be placed in fast-track deportation proceedings and flown to their home countries at USA expense, authorities said. According to Refugee International, the ruling by the Supreme Court was a blow to the desperate needs of asylum seekers at the southern border.

López Obrador added that he spoke by phone with President Donald Trump on Wednesday.

He also said things were looking better for the ratification of a new free trade agreement between US, Mexico and Canada.

"This is the latest step in terms of Trump's policies to push Mexico to become a safe third country, and to make a big chunk of the migration flow stay in Mexico permanently and deter them from traveling north", said Raúl Benítez, a professor of worldwide relations at the National Autonomous University of Mexico.

Thousands of people have been put on waiting lists at border crossings in Mexico to make asylum claims in the U.S. More than 30,000 people have been turned back to Mexico to wait out their asylum claims there, the Associated Press reports.

The downside for Mexico is that the buildup of migrants at the northern border is putting stress on schools, health clinics and housing.

But leftist Lopez Obrador's increasingly hardline immigration policies have attracted criticism at home and overseas.

It is largely aimed at the surge in migrants from Central America - more than 400,000 so far this fiscal year - who have tried to enter the US after crossing Mexico.

Trump has also pressured Mexico to take action.

The foreign minister also explained that in return for its work on immigration, Mexico has asked the United States government to help stem the tide of guns flowing into Mexico.

"Just over 36,500 are believed to be on the border area, they remain in Mexico", IOM spokesman Joel Millman said. The two sides agreed to form a binational commission to track progress on the issue.

"(This decision represents a) massive reversal of American leadership to protect the most vulnerable people fleeing extreme violence and persecution from around the world", he said in a statement.

"We have seen outbreaks of acts of xenophobia in Mexico that did not exist before, mainly in the north of the country", said Israel Ibarra, an immigration expert with the Continente Movil consultancy in Tijuana.
