Barack Obama’s legacy is Donald Trump.
Trump’s legacy will be reshaping the federal judiciary.
In that regard (and many others), Trump wins.
Check out what a Barack-appointed judge just did…
A California federal judge re-issued a nationwide injunction on Monday, blocking the Trump administration from denying asylum to migrants who have not first applied for refuge in a “third country” they’ve traveled through.
Last month, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals narrowed federal Judge Jon Tigar’s first preliminary injunction to apply only to the 9th circuit. The move allowed the Trump administration to enforce the policy — which would all but deny asylum to Central American migrants — in Texas and New Mexico. The policy will now be blocked nationwide once again.
President Trump’s strength scares other world leaders into submission.
Because 45 is such a wild card, nobody knows why he’s going to do or say next.
Guatemala didn’t want to push it with Trump, who was threatening the country with going on the travel ban list.
Here’s what happened instead, per Seattle Times:
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump announced Friday that Guatemala is signing an agreement to restrict asylum applications to the U.S. from Central America.
The so-called “safe third country” agreement would require migrants, including Salvadorans and Hondurans, who cross into Guatemala on their way to the U.S. to apply for protections in Guatemala instead of at the U.S. border. It could potentially ease the crush of migrants overwhelming the U.S. immigration system and hand Trump a concession he could herald as a win as he struggles to live up to his campaign promises on immigration.
Trump noted, “This is a very big day. We have long been working with Guatemala and now we can do it the right way. This landmark agreement will put the coyotes and smugglers out of business.“
