    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    The American Civil Liberties Union sued the Biden administration Wednesday over a sweeping executive action that largely shuts off asylum to migrants crossing the US southern border illegally.

    The lawsuit challenges rules restricting asylum for migrants crossing illegally, citing US law that states migrants can apply “whether or not” they enter at a designated port of entry; the requirement to claim fear, instead of being asked by authorities; the heightened screening standard; and reducing time for attorney consultation.

    The law is flatly illegal, period,” said Lee Gelernt, an ACLU attorney who is lead counsel in the lawsuit and argued the challenge to the Trump asylum ban.

    Senior administration officials anticipated, when previewing the executive action last week, that there’d be legal challenges.

    “I respectfully disagree with the ACLU,” Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas told ABC’s Martha Raddatz Sunday.

    The case – known as East Bay Sanctuary Covenant v. Trump – served as an example of why the president is limited in his ability to shut down the border.

    Goddamnit, ACLU, look at the bigger picture here! If Trump gets elected, he’ll probably disband your organization and Shanghai your members to be prey in a human Safari park for the wealthy.
