President Donald Trump’s new immigration rules received a major blow late on Monday when Jon Tigar, a federal judge in San Francisco, kicked against the administration’s rules that limit the asylum-seeking abilities of migrants. He ruled that the policy of stopping migrants who enter the country illegally from getting asylum is in absolute contrast to U.S. law that gave them the right to do so. On November 9, US President Trump overruling the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act that states all foreigners arriving USA, regardless it is a designated port or not, have the right to apply for asylum. He signed a presidential proclamation which puts an end to migrants’ ability to request asylum when they enter the United States illegally. In his justification, he relied on a law that gives him the right to suspend foreigners’ entry if he could sign a proclamation that declares foreigners are detrimental to the welfare of the US. This was the same right he exercised to implement the highly controversial travel ban aimed at majority-Muslim countries.
