We will then discuss efforts by the administration to restrict access to asylum, as well as litigation challenging these restrictions. Topics will include:

  • The November 2018 presidential proclamation to restrict asylum to those who enter the United States at ports of entry and updates on  East Bay Sanctuary Covenant v. Trump
