HIRC releases report on effect of Executive Orders on refugees; Urges Canada to reconsider Safe Third Country Agreement

The Harvard Immigration and Refugee Clinic released a report today on the effects of President Trump’s Executive Orders on people seeking asylum protection in the United States under long-standing provisions of U.S. and international law, including refugee law and the Convention Against Torture.
