Border Security: Trump Works to Tighten Asylum Rules, Halt Flow of Migrants

President Donald Trump is working to tighten U.S. asylum rules, often abused by illegal aliens to enter the United States without legitimate cause. 

Who: President Trump and the Department of Homeland Security.

What: A rule requiring asylum seeking immigrants to apply in a “safe third country” was published in the Federal Register today, according to several reports. The rule declares asylum seekers ineligible if they arrive at the southern border and bypass this process. Central American countries such as Guatemala would be required to interview and detain asylum seekers before their cases are adjudicated in the U.S.

The rule, of course is already being challenged by the ACLU and will have to make its way through the courts before it becomes the law of the land.

Where: Mexico, Central America and the United States.

When: The rule goes into effect Tuesday, pending the aforementioned court battle.

Why it Matters: The Trump administration is still maintaining its valiant effort to stem the tide of illegal aliens coming through our southern border. Hoping to alleviate the crowding at detention facilities, DHS is trying to find ways of solving this problem. Congress still refuses to do the job they were elected to do, and with the liberal judiciary favoring no less than open borders, it remains to be seen if this new approach will work.
