On Tuesday, a federal judge in Oakland, CA ruled that the Trump administration violated immigration laws and endangered immigrants when it issued a blanket denial of asylum to thousands of migrants from Central America who had not sought refuge in Mexico or another country before reaching the U.S. The rule, which took effect on Jan. 19, 2021 and was virtually identical to the administration’s earlier regulations, prohibited immigrants from applying for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border unless they had unsuccessfully sought asylum in a nation they had passed through along the way. The CA judge who blocked an earlier version of the rule said that the new version ignored U.S. laws that were designed to prevent “arbitrary denials” of asylum for immigrants fleeing danger.
