The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California has reinstated a nationwide ban on a Trump administration rule barring people at the southern border from seeking asylum unless they had previously done so in Mexico or another third country. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit had previously ruled that the preliminary injunction against the rule was only enforceable within the Ninth Circuit. The order is available here and below.
