The San Francisco-Based Court That Fights Against Trump Administration Policies

Jul 2, 2019

Last month, the Trump Administration argued before the Ninth Circuit that the government is not required to provide toothbrushes, soap or beds to the migrant children it detains. That argument was relentlessly criticized by the three-judge panel presiding over the case, and their comments quickly viral.

The heated exchange has contributed to a national outcry over the Trump Administration’s treatment of detained children and highlights the Ninth Circuit’s role in checking Trump’s immigration policies.
