Trump makes sweeping changes to the asylum system, and lawsuits follow

The ACLU announced today that it’s suing the Trump administration over another immigration policy. This suit challenges the Department of Justice’s move to deny asylum seekers a bond hearing so they can leave detention while their cases pend. Separately, some asylum officers say they’re growing increasingly uncomfortable with a Trump policy that forces some asylum seekers to return to Mexico while they wait for a court hearing in the US.
