CLASP opposes the proposed asylum ban

CLASP strongly opposes the proposed asylum ban. The proposed asylum ban undercuts the ability of families with children to seek refuge, an exceptional feature of the U.S.’s increasingly punitive immigration system. By dismantling our asylum system, the U.S. is no longer a place where families with children can seek refuge from violence, persecution, and authoritarianism. This ban, whether temporary or not, sets a dangerous precedent for border policies that contradict international standards for safe, equitable, and humane migration.
