Immigrants seeking asylum are seen last year at the ICE South Texas Family Residential Center, in Dilley, Texas. A federal judge on Wednesday  ordered the Trump administration to stop expelling immigrant children who cross the southern border alone as an anti-coronavirus measure.

Judge Emmet Sullivan issues a preliminary injunction, telling agents to stop the rapid expulsions of kids arriving with no adult. Since March, nearly everyone seeking asylum has been turned back.
