The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which has traditionally ruled against the Trump administration, handed President Donald Trump a rare immigration victory Friday night.
What are the details?
The appeals court issued a stay against a lower court decision — which came just four days earlier — that blocked the Trump administration from enforcing a policy that forced migrants to wait in Mexico while U.S. authorities processed their asylum requests.
However, the stay was only temporary. The court will consider extending the stay sometime next week, according to the New York Times.
The court gave civil liberty groups until Tuesday to submit arguments for why the policy should be overthrown, while giving the Justice Department until Wednesday to submit arguments for why the policy should remain in place.
