A federal court decision coming out of southern California yesterday didn’t draw much press attention, but it could have a major impact on U.S. immigration policy. It also puts more of a spotlight on the need for comprehensive improvements to our system of processing legitimate asylum claims by those seeking to legally enter our country across the Mexican border. Judge Dana Sabraw ordered a one week delay in any deportations of recently reunited families who were previously split up under President Trump’s zero tolerance policy for illegal entry. Some of the cases in question definitely involve illegal aliens while others affect those presenting asylum claims.
