Gregory Chen Rebuts Trump’s Asylum Remarks

Former Fellow Gregory Chen (’98) discussed President Trump’s criticism of asylum seekers in an article in The Washington Post (“Trump Says the Border Crisis Is About Criminals and Gangs. His Administration Says It Is About Families and Children,” May 1). President Trump’s “continued portrayal of the asylum seekers as somehow gaming the system is completely inaccurate,” Greg said. “In fact, most of the people who come here have very little, if any, knowledge of our legal system and what asylum even is.”
