ACLU Comment on New Trump Asylum Restrictions

WASHINGTON - The Trump administration announced sweeping asylum restrictions today.

The following reaction is from Lee Gelernt, deputy director of the Immigrants’ Rights Project of the American Civil Liberties Union:

"The Trump administration is trying to unilaterally reverse our country's legal and moral commitment to protect those fleeing danger. This new rule is patently unlawful and we will sue swiftly."
