Court Strikes Down Trump Asylum Rules

Court Strikes Down Trump Asylum Rules


On Friday, January 8, 2021, a ruling was issued in US District Court striking down the proposed rules issued by the Trump administration making it harder to claim Asylum in the United States.  The rules sought to redefine how people qualify for asylum and similar forms of humanitarian protection if they face persecution at home. The restrictions would have broadened the grounds for a judge to deem asylum applications frivolous and prohibit applicants from ever winning protections in the United States.

I encourage anyone interested in seeking Asylum in the United States to contact my offices and schedule a consultation appointment.  I look forward to working with you.
