Lawsuit Unleashed: ACLU Challenges Biden’s Asylum Ban

Today, the ACLU and other prominent organizations are taking legal action against the Biden administration’s new asylum ban. In a swift response to the administration’s unveiling of the new asylum policy coincides with the end of Title 42, the ACLU, along with the ACLU of Northern California, the Center for Gender and Refugee Studies, and the National Immigrant Justice Center, have filed a lawsuit challenging the ban.

The organizations say the ban mirrors two Trump-era policies that were previously blocked by the courts and prohibits asylum for individuals at the border who transit through another country en route to the United States. They argue that the ban puts vulnerable asylum seekers in grave danger and violates U.S. asylum laws.

The lawsuit also contends that the administration lacks the authority to restrict access to asylum based on an individual’s manner of entry or whether they sought asylum elsewhere. The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.
