Federal judge bars enforcement of Trump asylum ban

Texas residents may be aware that the American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Constitutional Rights have filed a lawsuit challenging President Trump's recent proclamation that denies asylum to immigrants who cross into the United States illegally from Mexico. Arguments made by the civil rights groups were apparently persuasive because a federal judge in California issued a temporary restraining order on November 19 that bars enforcement of the controversial policy.

Migrant caravan spurs asylum debate

Media outlets in Texas and around the country have devoted much of their coverage in recent weeks to a caravan of migrants traveling through Mexico on their way to the United States. The migrants say that they are fleeing violence and poverty in Honduras and plan to seek asylum in America, which has prompted a national debate about the asylum process and how asylum seekers differ from refugees.

DACA college students continue to face challenges

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program seeks to help those whose parents brought them to the United States illegally find a way to live and work in the country legally, but many DACA recipients continue to encounter hurdles. Currently, about 800,000 people living in the U.S. are DACA recipients, meaning they came to the country illegally through no fault of their own, but paving a path to legal citizenship and finding gainful employment are issues that continue to plague this community.
