A massive new reversal in how the U.S. treats asylum seekers could lead to thousands more people being detained.

Attorney General William Barr announced today the reversal of a long-standing policy by calling for asylum seekers to be jailed while their cases are considered.

Geoffrey Hoffman, the director of University of Houston Law Center’s Immigration Clinic, spoke with KCBS Radio Anchor Margie Shafer on how the policy will have profound impacts for both asylum seekers and the immigration system.
