Trump administration blocks asylum claims by those crossing border illegally

With the administration unveiling a new policy Thursday night that will expedite deportations of people who cross into the United States illegally and deny previously legal asylum claims and sign an executive order on that policy Friday morning, the White House is prepared for the lawsuits likely to be brought against it.

The measures are meant to funnel asylum seekers through official border crossings for speedy rulings, officials said, instead of having them try to circumvent such crossings on the almost 2,000-mile (3,200-kilometre) border.

Once the plan goes into full effect, migrants entering at the USA southern border would be eligible for asylum only if they report at official ports of entry, officials said. It's unknown whether those in the caravan, many fleeing violence in their homeland, plan to cross illegally.

Trump is expected to sign the order on Friday before leaving on a trip to Paris.

Days later, the Supreme Court upheld the president's controversial travel ban against people from several Muslim majority countries. The officials were not authorized to speak publicly and spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity.

Once triggered, it would give the government the power to deny asylum claims to illegal immigrants.

In remarks, last week at the White House, Trump announced he would pursue the rule change, suggesting without providing evidence that many migrants seek and receive asylum illegitimately. The new rule is nearly certain to be challenged in courts.




The new changes were likely to be met with legal challenges, too.

The American Civil Liberties Union, which defends constitutional rights, said that the right to request asylum must be granted to anyone entering the country.

Currently, U.S. asylum rules do not bar people who enter the country without authorization, and the Immigration and Nationality Act, which governs the U.S. immigration system, specifically allows people who arrive in the United States, whether or not they do so at a designated port of entry, to apply for asylum. "It is illegal to circumvent that by agency or presidential decree".

Immigration was a major focus in President Trump's 2018 mid-term election campaign.

Mr. Trump has also threatened to end birthright citizenship through executive order, although he has yet to do so. Those issues were not addressed by the regulations Thursday. I was on a call with a senior administration official today.

The rule, which prevents migrants from claiming asylum if they do not do so at an official border crossing, is the latest attempt by the White House to handle a surge in migration to the USA from the Central American countries of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. Generally, only about 20 per cent of applicants are approved. They said that the asylum - well, this is something that we know. But many migrants are unaware of that guidance, and official border crossings have grown clogged.
