Biden Administration Appeals Decision Blocking Asylum Restrictions

A lawyer representing President Joe Biden’s administration argued in an appeals court that a judge erred in blocking a rule imposing new restrictions on asylum seekers at the U.S.-Mexico border. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals heard the government’s appeal against a decision that deemed the rule, adopted earlier this year, a violation of federal immigration law. The rule presumes most migrant’s ineligible for asylum if they passed through other nations without seeking protection there first or crossed the border illegally. The ACLU, representing immigrant advocacy groups, brought the challenge, emphasizing the impact on asylum seekers.
