ABSTRACT

Failure to Protect: Biden Administration Continues Illegal Trump Policy to Block and Expel Asylum Seekers to Danger   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "For more than a year, the U.S. government has misused public health authority to expel and block families, adults, and children seeking refuge at the southern border. Under pressure from Trump administration officials, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) disregarded objections of its own senior experts and issued an order under Title 42 of the U.S. Code that is being used by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to evade U.S. refugee law - allegedly for the purpose of combating COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. This expulsion policy - which the Biden administration has failed to end - prevents refugees from requesting U.S. asylum at the border. Illegal, immoral, and unneeded to protect public health, the expulsion policy has sparked a chorus of condemnation from public health experts [hyperlink], legal scholars [hyperlink], former government officials [hyperlink], and members of Congress [hyperlink]."
