    > WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court freed the Trump administration Wednesday to implement its policy denying asylum to migrants at the southern border who have not sought protection from another country en route.

    > When the Supreme Court refused to green-light the separate policy regarding asylum seekers who cross the border illegally, Chief Justice John Roberts joined the court's four liberal justices, and four other conservative justices dissented.

    > "It alleviates a crushing burden on the U.S. asylum system by prioritizing asylum seekers who most need asylum in the United States," Francisco wrote.

  2. New restrictions now mandate individuals seek refuge elsewhere first to be eligible for US refugee status.

    Have you sought asylum in other countries?

    A) Yes.

    B) No.

    #TOUGH CHOICE THERE, EINSTEIN. WONDER WHAT THEY’LL CHOOSE!

  3. There is nowhere safe and able to take on the numbers and incoming numbers of migrants as close as the US.

    Cowardly and evil action by the SC; it deserves to be packed for this.
