Meanwhile, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) rejects any proposal that would affect asylum protections.
For her part, Nanette Barragán, president of the CHC, warned that the Republicans’ radical proposals would change the US immigration system forever. Barragán also noted that these proposals would create serious risks for asylum seekers and other vulnerable migrants.
