The Wall Street Journal: Federal judge bars mass detention of asylum seekers

A federal judge in Washington, D.C., on Monday ruled the Trump administration can’t systematically detain asylum seekers who arrive at the border with a credible fear of returning to their homelands.

The ruling by U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg marked the second time in less than a week that a federal judge has found the Trump administration’s immigration policies to likely be unlawful and ordered changes.

The decision followed last Wednesday’s order by a federal judge in California aimed at restricting the separation of families after they cross the border illegally. Monday’s ruling wasn’t about keeping children and parents together but the procedures around denying so-called humanitarian parole to asylum seekers.
