CASE ENTRY

East Bay Sanctuary Covenant v. Trump

In November, President Trump ordered that asylum for immigrants crossing the Mexican border would be limited to those coming through ports of entry. Ninth Circuit (in 65 pages, 10 days after the appeal was filed): Not so. Rather, the statute says what it says: Immigrants get to apply “whether or not at a designated port of arrival.” So the new order stays on ice. Dissent: The statute says aliens can “apply”; it doesn’t say the applications can’t all be denied.
