Tahirih Condemns Final Transit Asylum Ban

The administration published a final version of the transit asylum ban, after the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia issued a decision on June 30, 2020, forcing the policy to stop. The transit asylum ban was initially issued on July 16, 2019 and barred anyone approaching the U.S. southern border from applying for asylum, with limited exceptions. It was put into effect with no opportunity for comment from the public. Tahirih filed a lawsuit challenging the egregious ban on August 21, 2019, represented in the action by the American Civil Liberties Union.
