AILA Policy Brief: Trump Shutdown Bill Full of Extreme Restrictionist Provisions
1/24/19 AILA Doc. No. 19012241. Admissions & Border, DACA, Detention & Bond, Expedited Removal, Prosecutorial Discretion, Removal & Relief, Temporary Protected Status & Deferred Enforced Departure
The “End the Shutdown and Secure the Border Act” bill should be rejected as representing hardline restrictionist views, rather than a genuine attempt at compromise. It would provide weak DACA and TPS protections, ramp up funding for enforcement, and all but eliminate asylum for certain minors.
