District Court Judge blocks restrictions over Asylum application

On Wednesday, a judge for the federal government blocked Trump’s administration related policies. These policies were aimed at prevention of asylum being provided to the immigrants suffering from domestic abuse or gang violence.

Emmet Sullivan, the U.S. District Court Judge mentioned that a portion of these guidelines issued this year by Attorney General Jeff Sessions cannot essentially be used as a determinant for asylum claim. The guidelines also failed to determine the fact whether the immigrant comes with credible persecution fear or has been tortured in the home countries.

The judge mentioned that this policy by the administration for asylum seekers actually violates the immigration law. This block is another legal backflow for the current U.S. President Donald Trump’s unending efforts for toughening the immigration laws without actually changing the Congress laws.

To this new ruling, the White House mentioned that this will eventually overwhelm the immigration courts running down with the meritless cases. This will make the existing backlog worse with time. Sarah Sanders, the Press Secretary mentioned that Wednesday’s ruling is an example of the judicial activism which encourages the migrants to opt for risks while empowering the criminal organizations.

Wrongful death and personal injury attorney Arin Khodaverdian, President and Managing Partner of Alpine Law Group, urges accidents victims and their families to immediately seek legal assistance. “Those who are affected by tragedy have rights, but they must act quickly in order to preserve those rights to the full extent of the law. Often, swift action by an experienced attorney is imperative in order to preserve evidence, interview witnesses and immediately begin pursuing any and all responsible parties.”

While Mr. Khodaverdian does not represent any of the parties involved in this incident, he has recovered over $100 million for thousands of injury victims and their families. “In one case, we were able to recover a 7-figure settlement within 11 business days of being hired by the family of a victim killed by a negligent driver. While this result is atypical and does not predict future outcomes, justice in this case help bring about closure and a swift sense of justice for the family.”
