“Seeking asylum is not a lifestyle choice. It is an act of desperation,” writes Dr. Simon Adams, CVT president and CEO, in the StarTribune. He comments on the experiences of asylum seekers coming to the border, noting, “The situation at the southern border is a humanitarian catastrophe. Fixing it will require a total overhaul of an immigration and asylum system that all sides of U.S. politics recognize is hopelessly outdated, underfunded and unfit for use.”
