Administration looking to appeal restraining order on asylum ban

Many people live their lives in fear. In some cases, individuals take drastic actions in hopes of escaping imminent danger, like leaving their home countries to seek asylum elsewhere. While numerous people come to the United States in hopes of finding safety in California or other states, they often face roadblocks along the way.

The current presidential administration is trying to put up even more roadblocks for asylum seekers, but the stps taken are not going into effect immediately. The administration issued a presidential proclamation last month to ban individuals who illegally come into the United States from its southern border from pursuing asylum unless they utilized official ports of entry. However, a federal district judge determined that the ban would conflict with immigration law.

That judge issued an injunction, putting a temporary restraining order on the ban, and the injunction was recently upheld by a panel of judges on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The 5-4 majority agreed that the proclamation would likely conflict with the law. However, the presidential administration does not intend to let that ruling stop it as the administration intends to appeal that decision to the U.S. Supreme Court in the near future.

Most asylum seekers simply want to live their lives free from fear of persecution. Unfortunately, the light at the end of the tunnel may seem to some to only get farther and farther away. However, having help with this journey could make a considerable difference in outcomes, and interested individuals may want to speak with experienced California immigration law attorneys. These legal professionals can act as advocates and allies for individuals struggling to reach a safe harbor.
