A federal judge in San Francisco on Wednesday halted a new Trump administration asylum policy just hours after another federal judge in Washington let the nine-day-old rule stand. The policy says that to seek asylum at the U.S. border, migrants who pass through another country along the way must first apply for protection there. The ruling by U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar halts the new regulations while the lawsuit plays out in court.
