A U.S. District judge in San Francisco today blocked the Trump administration's policy requiring Central American asylum-seekers to wait in Mexico while their cases are decided, USA Today reports. Judge Richard Seeborg ordered 11 migrants from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras be allowed to enter the U.S within two days and issued a nationwide preliminary injunction that prevents any future asylum-seekers be forced back into Mexico. Previously, those seeking asylum were released into the U.S. and given a notice to appear in immigration court to pursue their case.
