Trump Administration Appeals Judge's Asylum Policy Ruling

Earlier this week,  a federal judge blocked  the Trump administration's policy of sending some asylum-seekers to Mexico to wait out their immigration hearings.

On Wednesday, the administration appealed that ruling.

The judge's ruling is set to take effect Friday.

But though the administration filed an appeal, it did not request the ruling be put on hold while that process plays out.

The U.S. began  sending back non-Mexican asylum-seekers  at San Diego's San Ysidro crossing in January.

That port of entry is the nation's busiest, and one that's been frequented by migrants from a Central American caravan that arrived in November.

Now-former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen ordered the  policy be expanded  to other crossings along the southern border earlier this month.

U.S. human rights groups  sued over the policy , alleging it endangers asylum-seekers and violates "humanitarian protections to which they are entitled under United States and international law." And on Monday, a judge in California agreed and issued a preliminary injunction.

In response to the order, White House press secretary  Sarah Sanders said , "President Trump will do whatever it takes to keep Americans safe." Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
