On Jan. 8, 2019, CLINIC joined 150 nonprofit organizations to submit a joint public comment opposing the interim final rule restricting asylum for some migrants at the border. This rule has the objective of restricting asylum protections for individuals seeking entry to the United States at places other than official ports of entry. The comment calls on the agency to withdraw the rule due to it being a violation of U.S. and international law as well as going against our moral values.
