NEW Trump move to slash asylum requests by Central Americans fleeing persecution clears first legal hurdle, as US judge in D.C. finds migrant legal services groups failed to quantify how many people will be harmed. wapo.st/2GomKWj?tid=ss…
U.S. judge Timothy J. Kelly of DC said he did not discount that asylum seekers will be turned away or deported under the change, or that the organizations could be forced to serve fewer individuals, families and children.
But the judge said in a bench ruling, “There is just nothing in the record to suggest how many individuals, if any, fall into that category ... Plaintiffs have not shown the likelihood of irreparable harm by the standard required."
A second US judge in San Francisco will weigh a similar challenge brought by the ACLU and civil rights groups later Wednesday. For more folo @mariasacchetti
