A federal lawsuit targeting the Trump administration’s latest moves on asylum seekers was filed in San Francisco federal court Friday afternoon, claiming their new restriction violates the Immigration and Nationality Act and the Administrative Procedure Act.

President Donald Trump signed a proclamation on Friday to that effect.
