president trump's latest asylum ban has been blocked by a federal judge the new rule would bar almost all asylum applications at the U. S. Mexico border because migrants would first need to apply for safe haven in a third country like Mexico or Guatemala but U. S. district judge John teeter from California on Wednesday slapped the rule with the preliminary injunction saying it was inconsistent with existing US asylum laws the White House announced the rule only last week but civil rights groups moved quickly to challenge it in court critics say the US can't force migrants to first apply for asylum in other countries unless Washington has a so called safe third country agreement with that government although trump on Wednesday said that wasn't the white house's problem so what about like it was their word we were going to sign to say thirty three minutes and then all of a sudden they backed up they said it was this Supreme Court I don't believe that but they use their Supreme Court as the reason they don't want to do it judge teachers decision came just hours after a separate ruling from a federal judge in Washington DC who refused to block the policy but the California decision means it will be enforced Intel legal issues are sorted out the trump administration has tried to clamp down on a growing stream of migrants arriving at the U. S. Mexico border running from violence and poverty in countries like Guatemala Honduras and El Salvador trump and his team says most of their asylum claims are bogus
