BREAKING: The Trump administration is moving to prohibit people who illegally cross the U.S. border with Mexico from claiming asylum.
On a call with reporters senior administration officials said the move was to funnel credible fear claims more quickly and come up with an "efficient" way to process. They said the "vast majority" of people who come to the US claiming credible fear are rejected.
This is President Trump following through with a statement he made last week from the WH when he described immigrants as dangerous and a threat to Americans across the country.
Senior Trump administration officials say there have been a "2000%" increase in immigrants claiming credible fear in recent years.
Here is the 78 page DOJ and DHS new asylum rule:…
Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, on Trump administration new asylum rule: "U.S. law specifically allows individuals to apply for asylum whether or not they are at a port of entry. It is illegal to circumvent that by agency or presidential decree."
