Looks like asylum seekers at the border will now have to fight their case from their host countries if they’re rejected at the border. On Thursday, a 7-2 SCOTUS ruling decided that asylum seekers aren’t entitled to fight their case in front of a judge essentially if they don’t make it past the border. The ruling appears to apply to those who see their initial asylum applications rejected.
