U.S. immigration employees’ union, former federal officials weigh in on ACLU challenge to “Return to Mexico” program
The USCIS union, former federal officials, and other legal service groups have filed friend-of-the-court briefs supporting the ACLU’s challenge to a Trump administration policy that forces asylum-seekers to return to Mexico and remain there while their asylum applications are processed.
