White House to Appeal Ruling Blocking Trump's 'Remain in Mexico' Migration Plan

Homeland Security Can't Force Asylum Seekers to Wait in Mexico, Judge Rules

But it would let Democrats show voters they're responsive to the rush of migrants that has overwhelmed federal officials and left border communities struggling to cope - rather than simply objecting to Trump's moves.

"I will tell you something - once you don't have it, that's why you see many more people coming", he said.

According to reports, the proposal will likely call for more resources at the border for those in need of medical attention, counseling for children as well as refugee processing.

Despite the restrictive immigration policies the Trump administration has implemented, a plurality of Americans (42 percent) believe that immigration helps the United States more than it hurts it (24 percent).

Officials from border, drug enforcement and human services agencies testified about the migrant surge at the southern border, where more than 360,000 people have been apprehended in the first six months of the fiscal year.

Trump and other US officials have called on Congress to alter the asylum laws and address a system that is in crisis, while advocates for immigrants say many are fleeing violence and have legitimate claims.

Trump also chastised reporters Wednesday for supposedly not covering the dangers faced by migrants who cross the border with the aid of smugglers, who he said often leave vulnerable immigrants to die on the unsafe route.

At a Senate Homeland Security Committee meeting on border issues, child welfare and border officials warned there wasn't room or capability to start separating children on a large scale again.

Immigration court records show the asylum denial rate rose from 21 percent in 2016, the past year of the Obama administration, to almost 47 percent as of January.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan is due to take Nielsen's place on a temporary basis, starting April 10.

"President Obama had child separation", Trump said Tuesday.

Taken together, in the era of tribalism and identity politics, American public views on many aspects of the immigration issue follow the now-familiar partisan divide.

Trump on Tuesday blasted the federal court rulings, calling them "a disgrace" and saying that "we have the worst laws of any country anywhere in the world".

The decision, which goes into effect on Friday, comes just days after outgoing Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen had vowed to expand the controversial programme.

"Binary choice is not something that's been brought to the White House", the official said.

But on Monday, the judicial branch announced it had its own wrench to throw into the administration's self-manufactured crisis of leadership at the border.

Families seeking asylum that typically would have been released in the USA with notices to appear in court, were instead sent back to Mexico to await their hearings.

Mr. Rivlin said numerous ideas the White House is talking about are illegal.

One such request that proved to be a point of contention, according to new reporting by NBC News, was over Trump's desire to reinstate the policy of family separations.
