The Supreme Court Case Threatening Asylum
February 26, 2020
Since President Trump took office, his administration has waged a series of attacks on asylum in the United States. They are restricting the number of asylum cases heard in a given day, sending asylum seekers to other countries to await review, and even working to bar specific groups of people from the process entirely. Now, a case before the Supreme Court threatens the right of asylum seekers to have their day in court. The decision will impact not just the civil liberties of asylum seekers, but all of us. On this episode we speak with Lee Gelernt, Deputy Director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights project who will be arguing to protect this right before the Supreme Court.
