UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The US administration is preparing to appeal the decision of the court, which previously blocked the effect of the decree of President Donald Trump, declining to deny asylum to migrants illegally crossing the southern border of the United States.
This was reported on Wednesday by CNN.
In November, a San Francisco (California) court blocked the use of this decree for 30 days, considering a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for the Protection of Constitutional Rights, which claimed that Trump’s decision violated human rights.
The US administration then filed a complaint, including with the Supreme Court, which, however, supported the lower court’s decision.
On December 19, a San Francisco court, after 30 days, decided to extend the ban on the execution of this decree until the trial of a lawsuit filed by human rights defenders was completed.
As noted by CNN, the consideration of this case may take several months. This means that the ban on the implementation of the above-mentioned decree of Trump will continue to operate throughout this time.
On Wednesday, as the television channel notes, the US administration filed documents with the San Francisco-based Court of Appeals of the Ninth Circuit, which state that they intend to appeal the lower court’s decision. As expected, the appeal itself will be filed soon.
At the same time, according to CNN, the US authorities have previously filed a complaint with the same court in connection with the previous decision to block the decree for 30 days. Then the board of judges refused, and there is no good reason to believe that this time they will support the next appeal.
Trump signed the decree on November 9, justifying this by the desire to stop the migrant caravans moving towards the southern US border, consisting mainly of immigrants from Central America.
According to the Mexican Migration Service, the number of migrants in these caravans in the country exceeds 9 thousand. On November 25, about 500 migrants attempted to break from the Mexican city of Tijuana on the border with the United States to the territory of a neighboring state. American security forces used tear gas against them.
Even during the election campaign in 2016, Trump promised his supporters to pursue a tighter immigration policy, as well as to strengthen border control. He is convinced that illegal immigrants, and there are about 12 million of them in the United States, are criminals who should be identified and deported.
