NEW YORK — The Trump administration is reportedly looking at executive action to block asylum seekers and immigrants from crossing the U.S.-Mexico border.

Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, had this reaction:

“It’s disgraceful the Trump administration would even consider what’s being reported. It would mean refusing to protect people who can prove they are fleeing persecution. That would be a huge moral failure and any plan along these lines will be subject to intense legal scrutiny.”
