The White House is expected to appeal a federal judge’s ruling, which struck-down the policy to keep asylum-seekers waiting in Mexico during the application process.

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders slammed the move Tuesday, saying District Judge Richard Seeborg is “gravely undermining the president’s ability to address the crisis at the border.” She added, the administration intends to appeal and will take all necessary action to defend the executive branch’s efforts.

Sanders goes on to say the flow of illegal aliens is crashing America’s immigration system and overwhelming the country.

President Trump also blasted the Ninth Circuit Court early Tuesday:

“We have a lot of great people over there. We have bad laws. We have a judge that just ruled incredibly that he doesn’t want people staying in Mexico. Figure that one out. Nobody can believe these decisions we’re getting from the Ninth Circuit. It’s a disgrace. We’re fighting the bad laws; the bad things that are coming out of Congress. You have a Democrat Congress that’s obstructing; you talk about obstruction, the greatest obstruction anyone’s ever seen.”

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