US Immigration Officials Move to Deny Asylum at Border 8 November 2018

Illegal migrants entering through the southern U.S. border will no longer be eligible for asylum under a new rule, the Trump administration has said.

The interim final rule to limit asylum proposed on November 8, 2018, by the Trump Administration is the latest attempt to shut American doors to people fleeing persecution and violence, Human Rights Watch said today. "The US government should absolutely be encouraging the safe, orderly and efficient processing of asylum claims at ports of entry, but the way to do that is by providing sufficient resources to receive and process asylum seekers in a fair and humane manner".

Trump also suggested he'd revoke the right to citizenship for babies born to non-U.S. citizens on American soil and erect massive "tent cities" to detain migrants. About 4,800 migrants are sheltered in a sports complex in Mexico City, some 600 miles (965 kilometres) from the USA border. "U.S. law specifically allows individuals to apply for asylum whether or not they are at a port of entry".

The new restrictions on asylum claims won't take effect until Trump issues a proclamation limiting or suspending entry into the USA from Mexico, according to the rule.

The 9th Circuit concluded that the Department of Homeland Security was wrong to assert that DACA is illegal, writing that the program is "a permissible exercise of executive discretion", and therefore those who have sought to challenge the administration's move to rescind it "are likely to succeed". "It is illegal to circumvent that by agency or presidential decree". The military is expected to have the vast majority of the more than 7,000 troops planned for the mission deployed by Monday, and that number could grow.

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

"The biggest loophole drawing illegal aliens to our borders is the use of fraudulent or meritless asylum claims to gain entry into our great country", Mr. Trump said last week.

He called a current caravan, which is still hundreds of miles from the United States border and dwindling in numbers, an "invasion" and said it would bring hardened criminals to USA streets.

Two senior administration officials that spoke to NBC News said that "of the [immigration] measures most likely to be approved by the president, all were likely to lead to a lawsuit".

Administration officials described the new policy as necessary to combat what they see as rampant abuse of the existing system, noting that most migrants who request asylum under the current process are ultimately denied.

But the administration official argued that "what we're attempting to do is trying to funnel credible fear claims, or asylum claims, through the ports of entry where we are better resourced". It's unknown whether those in the caravan, many fleeing violence in their homeland, plan to cross illegally.
