President Donald J. Trump celebrated a major win for his administration Wednesday after the Supreme Court ruled that nationwide enforcement of a rule that prevents most Central American immigrants from seeking asylum in the United States could be enforced.

“BIG United States Supreme Court WIN for the Border on Asylum!” Trump tweeted.

“The justices’ order late Wednesday temporarily undoes a lower-court ruling that had blocked the new asylum policy in some states along the southern border,” the Associated Press reported. “The policy is meant to deny asylum to anyone who passes through another country on the way to the U.S. without seeking protection there.”

The decision means that asylum seekers from Central American, Africa, Asia, and South America, “who arrive regularly at the southern border,” are “largely ineligible,” according to the AP.

“Once again, the Executive Branch has issued a rule that seeks to upend longstanding practices regarding refugees who seek shelter from persecution,” Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote.

Sotomayor and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dissented from the high court’s order.
