USA: 'You don't have any rights here' : Illegal pushbacks, arbitrary detention & ill-treatment of asylum-seekers in the United States
In 2017 and 2018, President Trump’s administration has implemented immigration policies that have caused catastrophic irreparable harm to thousands of people, have spurned and manifestly violated both US and international law, and appeared to be aimed at the full dismantling of the US asylum system. Setting a dangerous precedent, the US government’s abrogation of its obligations under human rights and refugee law is undermining the international framework for refugee protection, grossly violating the right to seek asylum, and is inviting a race to the bottom by other countries.
