    Trump seeks new restrictions for asylum-seekers from Central America

    Trump seeks new restrictions for asylum-seekers from Central America

    White House seeks to impose fee for applications, bar asylum-seekers from working


    Reuters
    President Donald Trump speaks in Washington on April 2.

    WASHINGTON — The White House ordered new restrictions on asylum-seeking Central American families at the southern border Monday, including charging them to file their claims and barring them from working in the U.S.

    President Donald Trump, in a presidential memorandum, called for regulations to be drafted within weeks to accelerate the process of adjudicating asylum claims, setting a fee for asylum seekers to file their claims “not to exceed the costs of adjudicating the application” and effectively barring them from working while the claims are being adjudicated.


    The memo also orders the attorney general and acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security to “reprioritize the assignment of immigration officers” to screen unauthorized immigrants who upon arriving assert a fear of returning to their home country, paving the way for lodging an asylum claim that could then take months or years to be fully adjudicated.


    Administration officials contend that the thousands of people traveling as families who arrive at the border with Mexico each day have brought the immigration system to a breaking point; some say the presence of children has created a humanitarian crisis because the border infrastructure is ill-equipped to care for them.


    An expanded version of this report appears on WSJ.com.

    and what exactly does this Presidential memorandum do? Call for legislation? Wow! Obama created legislation with DACA and Trump wont remove it. Now Trump wants to sound like he is doing something on the border so he does memos calling on Congress to do something instead of him?

    Kobach: The United States Is Giving the Caravans a Huge Incentive to Keep Coming

    We are witnessing an extraordinary collapse of the rule of law in our immigration system as hundreds of thousands of migrants exploit our generous asylum system by making bogus claims of asylum after entering the United States illegally.

    As I wrote recently, caravan after caravan of illegal aliens from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador has been pushing toward our border. Mexico is warning that the “mother of all caravans” – over 20,000 people – is gathering in Honduras. Border apprehensionsexceeded 100,000 in March – the highest monthly total in twelve years.
    I just visited the border yet again recently. Unfortunately, the news is not getting better. Indeed, there is no end in sight for the current crisis. Worse, official U.S. policy is creating massive incentives for the caravans to keep coming.

    CBP Presents Trump with a Piece of the Wall





    We are providing huge incentives for migrants to enter illegally and walk up to Border Patrol agents to demand a ride to the Border Patrol stations so they can make what is likely a bogus asylum claim. We know the claims are likely to be bogus, because the overwhelming majority of these migrants are denied asylum when their hearings eventually occur. U.S. policy has created three huge magnets for the caravans to keep coming:
    1. We are giving the migrants employment authorization right away. ICE has been operating under an Obama Administration policy that started in 2010 of granting the newly-arrived asylum applicants who pass the initial “credible fear” screening “immigration parole,” which gives them temporary lawful presence in the United States. With parole comes the opportunity to obtain a work permit without first waiting the normal 150 days to apply. The immigration regulations of the United States spell that out at 8 C.F.R. 274a.12(c)(11). That work permit enables the alien to obtain employment and compete against U.S. citizens and against those aliens who did it the right way by entering the United States legally. And it’s not short-term work authorization either.
    2. The asylum hearing dates are five to six years in the future. It’s not the six-month or one-year period that we’ve seen in the past. Because of the huge backlog in the immigration courts, the migrants are receiving court dates set many years in the future. In the meantime, they get to work legally in the United States. It’s as if they are handed a six-year work visa as soon as they arrive.
    3. It appears that we may be giving the migrants EBT cards. Many of the aliens who claim asylum are now applying for free EBT card for SNAP (food stamps) benefits. The cards come pre-charged with money so the migrants can start spending, courtesy of the American taxpayer. Depending on how many are in the group, the card value can range from about $200 a month for an individual to well over $1000 a month for a family unit, depending on its size. And word has gotten out. As a Border Patrol agent told me, one newly arrived migrant came up and asked about the form to fill out so she could get her “free food card.”
    U.S. law allows those who actually obtain asylum to qualify for federal welfare benefits, but now it appears that many asylum applicants may be getting them too. Again, the Obama Administration parole policy seems to be the problem; the fact that the migrants are being given parole is opening the door to the welfare benefits. A parolee need only be in the United States for a year before becoming eligible. And it appears that many are getting EBT cards well before that.
    Meanwhile, back in their home countries, those who try to enter the United States the right way – legally – must wait years in the hope of obtaining a temporary work permit that lasts three years at most. And they must demonstrate that they will not need welfare benefits when they arrive. In other words, we are treating caravan members who enter the United States illegally much better than we treat their countrymen who follow the law. Join a caravan and make a bogus asylum claim – and you can work in the United States for twice as long, you’ll get welfare benefits; and you don’t need to ask permission to come in the first place.
    In short, U.S. policy has created huge incentives to break the law and join the caravans. The alien who breaks the law is treated far better than the alien who follows the law. Why DHS has continued the Obama policy of granting parole to asylum applicants is anybody’s guess. But the consequences are playing out dramatically in the current crisis.
    Something has to change and soon. In addition to eliminating these incentives, there are other steps that should be taken. I recently laid out a three-point plan to solve this crisis. If the United States doesn’t change course quickly, it will only get worse. Much worse.

    TRUMP ANNOUNCES IMMIGRATION ASYLUM CHANGES

    11:53 PM 04/29/2019 | POLITICSMike Brest | Reporter


    President Donald Trump issued new immigration guidelines Monday evening specifically addressing migrants who are attempting to claim asylum along the U.S. southern border.
    In a presidential memorandum, Trump directed Attorney General William Barr and acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan to address the ongoing situation at the southern border.
    “The extensive resources required to process and care for these individuals pulls U.S. Customs and Border Protection personnel away from securing our Nation’s borders,” the memorandum reads in part, according to The Hill.
    Three of the new policies include adjudicating asylum applications within six months of filing, requiring a monetary fee for applications and/or work permit applications, and it would prevent migrants who have attempted to enter the United States illegally from receiving work authorization before any relief is granted, CNN reported.

    Trump’s memo comes the same day as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced they’d be shifting its resources to deal with the influx of “fake families” arriving on the U.S-Mexico border.
    “Fake families are being formed to cross our border and avoid detention. ICE [Homeland Security Investigations] is working with [Customs and Border Protection] to stop individuals, networks and organizations facilitating child smuggling and document fraud to illegally enter the U.S.,” ICE tweeted Monday.
    There were 92,000 arrests of illegal immigrants for illegal entry on the U.S.’s southern border last month, according to CNN.

    SEND THEM BACK ON THE SPOT!

    Give them a Docket Number and hear their case via SKYPE on their soil.

    Get them out.

    Overbreeding in poverty, wanting a better life, is NOT asylum.

    Terminate this stupid program and stop spending OUR money on these foreigners!

    They are not our responsibility to take in or pay for!

    THEY ARE A NET LOSS THIS COUNTRY AND BRING MORE PROBLEMS AND CRIME!

    This is JUST MORE PROOF Trump intends to do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about the HOSTILE INVASION on our border. HE DOESN'T NEED CONGRESS TO CHANGE HOW THESE BOGUS ASYLUM CASES ARE BEING HANDLED!!!!! Furthermore, it's all out in the open that these invaders are not even bothering with this BOGUS ASYLUM BS because Trump is just letting them go and giving them a free bus ride to the destination of their choice.
