A federal judge blocks the Trump Administration’s attempt to change rules for asylum seekers. Some immigration / asylum experts say the new rules would have essentially ended the program.

They sought to redefine how people qualify for asylum and similar forms of humanitarian protection if they face persecution at home. The restrictions would have broadened the grounds for a judge to deem asylum applications “frivolous” and prohibit applicants from ever winning protections in the U.S.

U.S. District Judge James Donato agreed with advocates who sued the Trump administration, saying that DHS Acting Secretary Chad Wolf does not have the authority to impose the new rules.

There are still numerous other changes coming from Trump’s administration that will leave American policy looking much different than it did in 2016.
