NILC Statement on Court Order Blocking Biden Admin’s Asylum Restrictions

WASHINGTON — Kica Matos, president of the National Immigration Law Center, issued the following statement in response to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California’s order that is set to block President Biden’s asylum restrictions:

“The federal court’s decision validates what’s been evident for months – that the Biden administration’s attacks on the U.S. asylum system are unlawful and immoral. Seeking safety on U.S. soil is a legal and human right, and the Biden administration should never have imposed these cruel restrictions in the first place.

“The Biden administration must abandon its inhumane and illegal efforts to obstruct asylum access and instead reaffirm the President’s repeated promises to welcome people seeking safety with dignity.”
