A federal lawsuit filed Wednesday argues that Trump administration asylum agreements with Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras are illegal. The agreements allow U.S. immigration officials to send asylum seekers to the Central American nations.

The American Civil Liberties Union and other civil rights groups want the so-called cooperative asylum agreements declared illegal, and are asking a federal judge to block Homeland Security officials from enforcing the new rules. (AP Photo/Moises Castillo, File)
