Default ACLU sues Trump administration for denying asylum to those fleeing domestic and gang

And they will win


https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...iolence-766101


Quote:
The American Civil Liberties Union on Tuesday filed a federal lawsuit against the Trump administration over its decision to remove asylum protections for victims of domestic and gang violence.

The ACLU is arguing against “expedited removal” policies, put forth by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, that it says “generally” deny claims of violence of that nature.

“This is a naked attempt by the Trump administration to eviscerate our country’s asylum protections,” Jennifer Chang Newell, managing attorney with the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, said in a statement. “It’s clear the administration’s goal is to deny and deport as many people as possible, as quickly as possible.”
Quote:
The lawsuit, Grace v. Sessions, was filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in conjunction with the Center for Gender & Refugee Studies at the University of California, Hastings College of the Law.
I pray our Constitution can withstand the assault by this administration.

Failure to uphold our laws, and some people don't even blink. Upholding our laws, and those same people throw a conniption.

I'm not seeing an 'assault' on our Constitution.

That's because your an independent thinker evaluating facts instead of repeating talking points based on stupidity.

You mean after the last administration weaponized the IRS, DOJ and FBI to take down political opponents. That was OK, right?

Absolutely. Asylum is outlined in our law.
