An Obama-appointed San Francisco judge blocked President Trump from refusing asylum to the migrants headed through Mexico and to the southern United States border.
Yes, you read that correctly. The judge barred President Trump from refusing a migrant caravan of people who are looking to cross the border illegally.

In an order laced with language accusing President Donald Trump of attempting to rewrite immigration laws, a federal judge based in San Francisco temporarily blocked the government late Monday night from denying asylum to those crossing over the southern border between ports of entry.
Judge Jon S. Tigar of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California said that a policy announced November 9 barring asylum for immigrants who enter outside a legal check point ‘”irreconcilably conflicts” with immigration law and the “expressed intent of Congress.”
“Whatever the scope of the President’s authority, he may not rewrite the immigration laws to impose a condition that Congress has expressly forbidden,” Tigar wrote, adding that asylum seekers would be put at “increased risk of violence and other harms at the border” if the administration’s rule is allowed to go into effect.
The temporary restraining order is effective nationwide and will remain in effect until December 19, when the judge has scheduled another hearing, or further order of the court.
It’s amazing what President Trump has to get through in order to do the right thing for this country. These people are trying to enter this country illegally.
Instead of the President of the United States being able to do what is right, he gets blocked by an Obama-appointed liberal judge. How is it possible that the judge even has the option of barring President Trump from blocking people to enter this country illegally.
