ACLU sues to end Trump’s policy of sending asylum seekers to Guatemala

New York, January 17 (RHC)-- The American Civil Liberties Union has sued the Donald Trump administration over its policy of sending asylum seekers at the U.S.-Mexico border to Guatemala.

Under a deal last summer between Trump and Guatemala’s now-departed President Jimmy Morales, the U.S. government began deporting Honduran and Salvadoran asylum seekers to Guatemala, denying them a right to pursue refugee status in the United States. In its lawsuit, the ACLU wrote: “The Trump administration has created a deadly game of musical chairs that leaves desperate refugees without a safe haven, in violation of U.S. and international law.”
