USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - FRONT PAGE -

The Amer­i­can Civil Lib­er­ties Union is seek­ing a court in­junc­tion to block Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s new re­stric­tions on asy­lum, ar­gu­ing in a law­suit filed Fri­day that the pol­icy vi­o­lates fed­eral im­mi­gra­tion law.

Trump signed a procla­ma­tion Fri­day deny­ing asy­lum to im­mi­grants who en­ter the U.S. il­le­gally, rather than through a port of en­try – a move aimed at a car­a­van of Cen­tral Amer­i­can mi­grants head­ing to­ward the U.S.
