US Supreme Court allows President Donald Trump's administration to implement asylum restrictions

Supreme Court gives green light for administration to roll out new rules that would make it harder for Central America n migrants to claim asylum in the US.

The decision, temporarily in effect while lower court proceedings play out, is a victory for Trump's restrictive immigration policies, which he has made a central pillar of his presidency but which have been repeatedly challenged in court.

"In effect, the rule forbids almost all Central Americans... to apply for asylum in the US if they enter or seek to enter through the southern border, unless they were first denied asylum in Mexico or another third country," she wrote.

Lee Gelernt, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union, one of the groups challenging the asylum restrictions, expressed hope that "we'll prevail at the end of the day."

Democrats in the House of Representatives made a similar point.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chairman Eliot Engel said that "for many refugees, this is life and death."
