Trump Seeks To Stave Off The End Of Asylum Policy

On Thursday, the Trump administration made a last-minute attempt to preserve its policy of sending asylum seekers to Mexico.

It filed an emergency motion Friday afternoon that would block an injunction currently set to dissolve the policy.

In the motion filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco, the administration argued the policy needed to remain in place due to what it termed a "humanitarian and security crisis" at the border due to a quickly growing number of refugees.

A U.S. District Court judge ruled Monday that the policy violated current immigration laws and issued a nationwide injunction to block the policy beginning on Friday.

He also ordered the plaintiffs who filed the lawsuit to be brought back to the United States.

The government's filing asked for two stays of the injunction: a brief administrative stay to be followed by a longer stay for the time it takes to go through the appeals process.

Since January, the policy has placed more than 1,000 asylum seekers in Mexico while they await the processing of their claims.
