    JUST IN: President Trump Moves to Restrict Asylum Access at Southern Border

    JUST IN: President Trump Moves to Restrict Asylum Access at Southern Border


    November 8, 2018





    On Thursday, President Trump moved to restrict asylum claims at the southern border as the migrant caravans of mainly military-aged Central American males marches through Mexico to the United States.


    The Department of Justice announced the move to restrict asylum Thursday afternoon.


    Via the DOJ:

    The Acting Attorney General and the Secretary issued the following joint statement:


    “Consistent with our immigration laws, the President has the broad authority to suspend or restrict the entry of aliens into the United States if he determines it to be in the national interest to do so. Today’s rule applies this important principle to aliens who violate such a suspension or restriction regarding the southern border imposed by the President by invoking an express authority provided by Congress to restrict eligibility for asylum. Our asylum system is overwhelmed with too many meritless asylum claims from aliens who place a tremendous burden on our resources, preventing us from being able to expeditiously grant asylum to those who truly deserve it. Today, we are using the authority granted to us by Congress to bar aliens who violate a Presidential suspension of entry or other restriction from asylum eligibility.”

    Section 212(f) of the Immigration and INA states that “[w]henever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”


    Further, Section 215(a) of the INA states that it is “unlawful…for any alien to depart from or enter or attempt to depart from or enter the United States except under such reasonable rules, regulations, and orders, and subject to such limitations and exceptions as the President may prescribe.”

    In Section 208(d)(5)(B) of the INA, Congress specified that the Attorney General “may provide by regulation for any other conditions or limitations on the consideration of an application for asylum.”
    Today’s new rule applies to prospective presidential proclamations, and is not retroactive.

    Asylum is a discretionary form of relief granted by the Executive Branch on a discretionary basis to those fleeing persecution on the basis of their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion. The rule does not render such aliens ineligible for withholding of removal under the INA or protection from removal under the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.



    The DHS previously confirmed dangerous gang members and people with criminal histories are embedded in the caravan of migrants.


    Unaccompanied minors were also saved by Guatemalan authorities from smugglers.
    Furthermore, military-aged males from Congo, Bangladesh and the Middle East are also embedded in the horde which means ISIS terrorists could easily be on their way to the southern border disguised as asylum seekers.


    In addition to this new asylum rule, the President sent thousands of troops to the US-Mexico border to support Border Patrol agents.

    Trump Administration Moves to Restrict Asylum Claims by Migrants

    November 8, 2018

    Jennifer Epstein




    The Trump administration said it would restrict people who illegally cross the U.S. border with Mexico from claiming asylum, as the president seeks to choke off migration from Latin America.


    The change to asylum procedures was published Thursday by the Justice Department. President Donald Trump has blamed U.S. asylum rules for luring thousands of migrants a year from Central American countries. The new rule is almost certain to be challenged in courts.


    “Our asylum system is overwhelmed with too many meritless asylum claims from aliens who place a tremendous burden on our resources, preventing us from being able to expeditiously grant asylum to those who truly deserve it,” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker said in a joint statement.


    The new restrictions on asylum claims won’t take effect until Trump issues a proclamation limiting or suspending entry into the U.S. from Mexico, according to the rule. Trump plans to issue the proclamation on Friday, an administration official who asked not to be identified told reporters in a briefing.


    Under the rule, migrants seeking asylum will have to make their claims at official ports of entry on the border. There, “they would be processed in a controlled, orderly, and lawful manner,” according to the rule.


    Immigrant advocacy groups have complained that under Trump, U.S. border police have made it more difficult for people to cross into the country at ports of entry and have outright turned away some migrants.


    “The administration’s asylum ban is unlawful and ignores our country’s basic values. There will be lawsuits,” said Lee Gelernt, an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union who led the group’s challenge to the administration’s family separation policy.


    According to U.S. law, any migrant who enters the country “whether or not at a designated port of arrival” can apply for asylum. The administration believes it can modify that with its new rule. Many migrants who cross the border with Mexico illegally -- especially children and families -- present themselves to Customs and Border Patrol officers as soon as they can and claim asylum.


    People who claim asylum are now interviewed by U.S. officials to assess whether they have a “credible fear” of being returned to their home countries. If so, they are placed in immigration proceedings. Most are released with orders to appear in court later, a procedure Trump has belittled as “catch and release.”


    Under the new rule, the “credible fear” interviews would be preceded by determinations of whether Trump’s proclamation applies to migrants caught crossing the border. If so, they would have to meet a higher standard to apply for asylum, showing “a reasonable fear of persecution or torture” in order to avoid deportation.


    Trump made immigration a key issue in Tuesday’s election, stoking fear among his supporters about a migrant “caravan” that’s still hundreds of miles away in Mexico. Trump said last week that he planned to modify the asylum process to make it more difficult for Central American migrants in the caravan to request protection.


    Administration officials argue the asylum system is abused by people who are not seeking security in the U.S. but are instead searching for economic opportunity or trying to reunite with family members.


    The number of “credible fear” interviews conducted by U.S. officials increased from about 5,000 a year in fiscal 2008 to 97,000 last year, according to Department of Justice data cited in a Federal Register notice of the rule. About 89 percent of applicants were determined to have credible fear last year, up from 77 percent in 2008. But only about 6,000 immigrants succeeded in completing the entire process to be granted asylum, according to the notice.

    Judy, I hope the Acting Attorney General will be proactive on fixing immigration loopholes where he is able. He can also seek to find where laws have been passed but ignored and then fully enforce them.

    NO asylum at Ports of Entry!

    We cannot have 500,000 people a DAY showing up on our doorstep!


    Turn them away!

    They MUST apply in their home country, be thoroughly investigated in their home town, be vetted and pass a complete medical evaluation!

    No diseases, no health issues, no diabetes, no cancer, no brain tumor, no TB, no dialysis, no AIDS, nothing! We do not want to pay for their healthcare!

    No pregnant ones! We do not want to pay for their anchor baby or the hospital bills.

    Of course he will, he wouldn't have been appointed otherwise. Our laws suck, but because we lost the election on Tuesday, there's nothing we will ever be able to do about it now. Tuesday was our last chance to save this country through legislation from this scourge and we failed. I don't think that has sunk in yet, and I don't understand why.

    Judy, it was a shame that so many republicans decided to quit (45) and not run again. That left us with a big hill to climb to keep the House. Many were against President Trump even if not vocally.

    The prospects of "America First" legislation to deal with immigration of any kind is dim.

    Why? Because of laws, laws which we unfortunately will never be able to change, because we lost the House of Representatives and failed to gain the 60 seat majority we need in the Senate to ever pass a bill. All we have is our dear President Trump, who will be stopped at every turn by lawsuits. I don't think it's sunk in yet what losing the election on Tuesday means to our cause. We're in Deep Doo Doo and the whole world wanting to flock in here knows it. Thank God, Trump has military on the border, he needs to send as many as possible.
