The US President Donald Trump on Tuesday lashed out at federal judge for defeat in asylum policy.
“A 9th Circuit judge just ruled that Mexico is too dangerous for migrants,” he tweeted. “So unfair to the US.”
The migration across the US-Mexico border is at its peak and US immigration officials have estimated border apprehensions in March topped 100,000.
The San Francisco ninth district judge’s order against the migrant policy is not due to go into effect until 12 April, giving US officials a chance to appeal the ruling.
The new ruling is amid reports suggesting that Trump is tightening the stance on migration policy.

Senior White House adviser Stephen Miller is said to be egging on the president to adopt an increasingly hardline stance on immigration.
Democratic congresswoman Ilhan Omar on Monday called Mr Miller “a white nationalist” on Twitter.
