Trump Calls Out Judge As He Renews Asylum Ban Order
In renewing his order to bar people who cross the border illegally from seeking asylum, President Donald Trump issued a proclamation that criticized a federal judge that's kept his policy in check thus far.
Trump's original November proclamation establishing the ban was blocked a federal judge in Northern California and upheld by the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals.
In order to ensure the ban would take effect should those courts be overturned, the White House had to renew the proclamation, which had expired.
Trump has frequently railed against the 9th Circuit as "very unfair."
His criticisms draw on previous decisions by judges that have kept other administration immigration policies from moving forward.
