Tahirih Statement on DC Federal Court Ruling on Asylum Ban Lawsuit

The Tahirih Justice Center is relieved at the decision in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on our lawsuit challenging the third country transit asylum ban, forcing the policy to stop. The asylum ban was 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. The lawsuit was filed on August 21, 2019, and Tahirih was represented in the action by the American Civil Liberties Union.
