  • Trump just announced a big change to immigration policy – and it will affect caravan migrants

The executive action is the latest the President has taken to clamp down on illegal immigration and to discourage the group of migrants now traveling through Mexico, many of whom want to seek asylum in the U.S., from making their way toward the country.

The administration has long said immigration officials are drowning in asylum cases partly because people falsely claim asylum and then live in the US with work permits. "Under current practice, border agents are repeatedly turning asylum-seekers away and telling them to come back another day".

The Trump administration unveiled new rules on Thursday to sharply limit migrant asylum claims by barring individuals who cross the U.S. southern border illegally from seeking asylum.

"US law specifically allows individuals to apply for asylum whether or not they are at a port of entry".

"This interim regulation is not only inconsistent with the letter of the law, but flatly contradicts it", Frelick said.

This is expected to put a dent in those streaming into an already overburdened system, officials said, noting that there is a backlog of more than 700,000 cases in the immigration courts.

US President Donald Trump signed a proclamation on Friday suspending the entry of migrants through the US southern border between ports of entry for 90 days. A senior administration official said Thursday that the vast majority of such claims are "non-meritorious". Since 2014, asylum claims at the border have increased fourfold, adding to a backlog of more than 750,000 pending cases in USA immigration courts.

What is the new rule?

The American Civil Liberties Union, a group that defends individual rights, declared the move "illegal". Claims have spiked in recent years, and there is a backlog of more than 800,000 cases pending in immigration court, with a wait time that can be almost two years.

Thanks to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, asylum rules were reformed to prevent migrants from receiving asylum by claiming they are fleeing violence, gangs, or domestic abuse. And in the last five years, the number of those requesting asylum has increased by 2,000 percent, it said.

Thousands of people from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador have fled poverty and violence in their homelands and made their way to the United States. Those moves have been challenged in court. By 2023, the Center for Immigration Studies estimates that the legal and illegal immigrant population of the USA will make up almost 15 percent of the entire US population.

Those delays increase the chances that caravan members could attempt to cross illegally by fording the Rio Grande or trekking through the desert to set foot on US soil and surrender to Border Patrol agents. Most have passed largely unnoticed.
