A Trump administration policy which had required migrants from Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala and other nations to first apply for asylum in the countries they travel through, instead of coming all the way to the U.S. border to request asylum, just got slapped down by a federal judge late Tuesday night.
U.S. District Judge Timothy J. Kelly of Washington, D.C., who was appointed by President Trump, ruled that the administration failed to show it was in the public interest to implement the new policy last July without public notice or comment.

DMLNews App and TeamDML.com founder Dennis Michael Lynch slammed the judge’s ruling, saying, “Now we will have more Central Americans coming to the border claiming asylum so they can apply for jobs at a time when there are no jobs for more than 20,000,000 Americans. Not to mention the COVID-19 cases set to come from the Central American nations.”
We asked in a poll on Wednesday wether you believe this new ruling on asylum will open the floodgates for illegal immigration into the U.S.? A whopping 95.65 percent of people who took the poll agreed with DML, saying, “Yes, absolutely, the caravans will start right back up.” See the results below:
