An appeals court has blocked some policies that would weaken protections against asylum-seekers.

On July 17, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld parts of a lower court ruling that blocked the Trump administration from implementing policies that would bar domestic abuse victims and people fleeing gang violence from seeking asylum in the U.S. The case was brought by 12 asylum seekers through the ACLU, who successfully argued that the Trump administration was elevating asylum standards beyond Congress’ intentions.
