Asylum Seekers Arriving
The Southern District Court of California ruled in Al Otro Lado, Inc., et al. v. Mayorkas, et al.. Refugees are persons fleeing the risk of persecution or serious harm, including human rights violations, armed conflict or persecution. Through metering, asylum seekers were prevented from accessing the asylum process when they arrive at the U.S. border. An asylum seeker is a person who has left their country and is seeking protection from persecution and serious human rights violations in another country, but who hasn’t yet been legally recognized as a refugee and is waiting to receive a decision on their asylum claim.
