U.S. Supreme Court w/ flagThe attorney for an immigration watchdog says it's time for the United States Supreme Court to put an end to activist judges on the issue of illegal immigration and border security.   

The White House is condemning an order by an Obama-appointed federal judge requiring President Donald Trump's administration to stop denying asylum to anyone who transits through another country to reach the U.S. border.

The ruling by Judge Jon Tigar in San Francisco came hours after another federal judge in Washington, D.C., let the policy stand.

Art Arthur, resident fellow in law and policy at the Center for Immigration Studies, says unfortunately the California ruling stands for now.

“Once a nationwide injunction is in place,” he explains, “the executive branch has to comply with that injunction or run the risk that it's going to be in contempt of the judge.”

An injunction is so powerful, he further explains, that just one judge issuing one can overrule a hundred others who do not.

Arthur predicts the U.S. Supreme Court will eventually be forced to rule on the issue and his hope is for legal action that limits the scope of a nationwide injunction. 

There are multiple immigration cases making their way to the high court, he tells OneNewsNow, “and I think the Supreme Court is eventually going to get tired to hear six immigration cases every term."
