100+ Policy Changes that Have Devastated Immigrants and Asylum Seekers

Publication date: 
November 2020

This report, a collaboration between the Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC) and the University of San Francisco, compiles the most egregious policies attacking immigrants and asylum seekers.

Listing more than 100 policy changes from the last four years, the report breaks down how every aspect of the immigration system is being dismantled: preventing people from even entering the country; denying legal status to those who apply for it; taking away legal status from those who had it; eliminating process protections in how people are treated by the immigration agencies; detaining, deporting and terrorizing immigrant communities; and retaliating against anyone who speaks out against these policies.

This report seeks to help people really grasp the enormity of destruction to our immigration system and see how the pieces fit together.
