Rethinking Our Asylum System

In The New York Times, Kimiko Hirota, policy advisor at the Women’s Refugee Commission, responds to an article about the Bipartisan Border Solutions Act in a letter to the editor.

In the letter, Hirota writes: “…the Bipartisan Border Solutions Act — which just 13 of 535 members of Congress have co-sponsored — provides neither realistic nor humane solutions to address today’s migration challenges. The proposal repackages Trump-era policies that would almost certainly increase the number of asylum seekers languishing in squalid conditions at the border.”
