Why Trump’s Cruelty Doesn’t Deter Migrants

In a recent op-ed, Fernando Chang-Muy, lecturer at SP2 and Penn Law, recalls discussions he and a Penn Law student had with Hondurans this summer regarding harsh U.S. asylum policies.

“We aimed not to influence decisions about fleeing but rather to inform potential asylum seekers of the legal obstacles they would face, and the rights to which they are entitled, if they chose to make the trip north.”

Chang-Muy is also a former legal officer for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
