Julian Castro Speaks on The Current State of The United States

As Trump faced national rebuke for his racist comments against four progressive congresswomen, his administration announced a new rule essentially banning most immigrants from seeking refuge in the United States.

The rule, which the ACLU has already vowed to challenge in court, would deny asylum to any migrant who failed to apply for protection in another country they passed through on the way to the U.S. border—including children traveling alone.

If enacted, the law would effectively block people from Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, as well as Haitians, Cubans and many people from African countries, who come to the U.S. via the southern border.

Democracy Now! speaks with 2020 presidential candidate Julián Castro about the asylum ban and his immigration reform proposals, workers’ rights, fair pay and where he stands on foreign policy, from China to Israel.
