In her investigation ‚ÄúChinatown Asylum Crackdown,‚Äù NPR‚Äôs Ailsa Chang shines a light on a never-before reported aspect of the Trump administration‚Äôs clampdown on the asylum system. Much of the news coverage on President Trump‚Äôs immigration policies has been focused on the White House‚Äôs efforts to turn away asylum-seekers at the border. What Chang reveals in her investigation for NPR‚Äôs Planet Money podcast is the Trump administration‚Äôs quiet operation to strip asylum status from immigrants who won it years ago. The people targeted in this sweeping review are Chinese immigrants ‚Äì more than 13,000 of them. Many of them have been living in the U.S. for years with green cards and are now spending thousands of dollars defending their asylum cases in immigration court ‚Äì years after winning asylum.
