US to ap­peal judge’s or­der bar­ring asy­lum re­stric­tions

Global Times US Edition - - USSOCIETY -

The Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion said Tues­day that it would ap­peal a fed­eral judge’s or­der halt­ing a pres­i­den­tial procla­ma­tion that pre­vents cer­tain im­mi­grants from seek­ing asy­lum.

The US Depart­ment of Jus­tice filed a no­tice that in­di­cated it will ap­peal the or­der to the ninth US Cir­cuit Court of Ap­peals.

Ear­lier this month, Judge Jon Ti­gar of the US District Court for the North­ern District of Cal­i­for­nia sided with op­po­nents of Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s mea­sure pro­hibit­ing im­mi­grants who cross the south­ern bor­der il­le­gally from claim­ing asy­lum.

In re­sponse, Trump lashed out at the ninth Cir­cuit as bi­ased and dis­missed Ti­gar, an ap­pointee of Trump’s pre­de­ces­sor, as an “Obama judge,” prompt­ing a re­buke from Supreme Court Chief Jus­tice John Roberts, who said the fed­eral ju­di­ciary doesn’t have “Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clin­ton judges.” Xin­hua
