AsylumConnect Condemns New 'Third Country' Asylum Rule
Under a new 'third country' rule, which went into effect on July 16, 2019, the Trump administration has barred asylum applications from individuals at the southern border who passed through a third country on their way to the United States but did not seek asylum in that country.
This new policy violates both domestic and international law, and threatens millions of lives. AsylumConnect joins the many civil rights groups in calling for this new rule to be immediately blocked by the courts.
America must continue to respect the life-or-death urgency and need for asylum.
