Media statement: AIS Denounces Latest Attempt to End Asylum
“The administration’s new rule is a broadscale attack on asylum, a critical humanitarian protection that the U.S. is obligated to provide under inter-national law. The rule puts asylum seekers in further danger by returning them to countries that are not safe, where many have reported being tracked down by their persecutors.”
