For the past decade and longer, there is no doubt among anyone that the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has been THE most liberal federal court in all of America.
It has seemed to many conservatives that the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has often issued rulings that were based more on the liberal agenda of Democrats, rather than ruling on the Constitution and rule of law.

They have all been schooled in how to tell that they are fleeing violence and crime, when in reality, they are not.
Under Barack Obama, that was all it took to get into the US, but the Trump administration is smarter than that and making asylum seekers prove their claims and if those claims cannot be proven, they are summarily returned to Mexico, and rightly so.
