'Emergency' request to Supreme Court!
The Trump administration has launched its most aggressive legal attempt yet to end all immigration to the United States -- an asylum ban. It targets the most vulnerable and desperate, people who are fleeing for their lives from violence, war, and persecution due to their race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion, or political membership. Seeking asylum is a human right.
The asylum ban would make anyone who crosses the southern border between ports of entry between November 10, 2018 and February 9, 2019 ineligible for asylum.
This racist, immoral ban has already been temporarily stopped by a federal judge on the grounds that it violates U.S. asylum laws. The Trump administration is already planning to appeal the decision when the hold lifts on December 19th -- they’ll stop at nothing to end all immigration to the U.S.
