(AbsoluteNews.com) – At the end of April, a US District Court judge ordered Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to release at least 250 detainees from detention because of the COVID-19 pandemic. President Donald Trump’s administration immediately asked a higher court for a stay.
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals issued an emergency stay, giving the president another win in the immigration battle.
On April 23, US District Judge Terry Hatter ruled hundreds of migrants in the Adelanto ICE Processing Facility had to go free in order to “immediately reduce” the population. The decision was meant to allow detainees to stay six feet away from one another.

The 9th Circuit’s ruling requires the detention facility to follow COVID-19 CDC guidelines but won’t allow aliens to be released into the community. It’s a significant win for the Trump Administration who can now appeal the district judge’s ruling, but keep Americans safe while doing it.
