Last week, President Trump decided to act, since Congressional Democrats refuse, to end open asylum protections to most Central American migrants traveling to the United States.
The AP reported:
According to a new rule published in the Federal Register , asylum seekers who pass through another country first will be ineligible for asylum at the U.S. southern border. The rule, expected to go into effect Tuesday, also applies to children who have crossed the border alone.
There are some exceptions: If someone has been trafficked, if the country the migrant passed through did not sign one of the major international treaties that govern how refugees are managed (though most Western countries have signed them) or if an asylum-seeker sought protection in a country but was denied, then a migrant could still apply for U.S. asylum.
As a result, asylum seekers are forced to apply to the first nation that they enter or cross, rather than passing through any number of nations that they pass through to get to the United States because they intentionally plot to exploit the United States taxpayers generosity and lax immigration laws, which Democrats refuse to fix!
Therefore, the would-be illegal aliens will be forced to apply in the first country they enter instead of by-passing other countries to enter the United States of America! Otherwise, they will be denied immediately! However, if they are rejected by the first country, they can then apply for asylum to the United States! The new rules are designed to end the massive number of illegal aliens claiming asylum at the US southern border.
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services appeared on America’s Newsroom to explain the changes…
