That default ploy of undermining Trump through adversarial courts is not going as well as Dems had hoped. They just lost another decision.
They have been doing this since Day 1 of his presidency. Trump acts within his lawful Article 2 powers, someone on the Left objects, files an injunction in an ‘adversarial’ court, and a single judge makes a ruling that derails Trump’s entire agenda.
Even the 9th Circuit of appeals recognized that was an over-reach when they reduced the scope of the 9th Circuit’s injunction. The Supreme Court went further still.
While the final decision of the case itself has yet to play out, the Left has lost their case to have an injunction against Trump’s asylum solution requiring that would-be asylee travelling through another country before arriving here must apply for asylum there (and go through the process of being rejected) BEFORE applying in America.
On its face, it seems a pretty sensible solution when so many have been ‘gaming’ the system with asylum claims that are largely denied in the end.
The President took his customary victory lap…

And the official White House comments on the issue were:
“We are pleased the Supreme Court has ruled our Administration can implement important, needed fixes to the broken asylum system,” White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley said.
This greatly helps build on the progress we’ve made addressing the crisis at our southern border and will ultimately make American communities safer,” Gidley added. “The district court’s erroneous nationwide injunction was another in a series of overreaching orders that allowed a single, non-elected district court judge to override policy decisions for the entire Nation. While there is much more work still to be done, thankfully the Supreme Court took a decisive step here and rejected the lower court’s egregious ruling.”
The DOJ also said the ruling would “bring order to the crisis at the southern border, close loopholes in our immigration system, and discourage frivolous claims.”
Open-borders Democrats, to nobody’s surprise, were ‘gravely disappointed’.
Of course they were.
