Feds announce new policy to limit asylum claims

The move represents Mr. Trump's latest immigration crackdown, as a caravan of migrants from Central America approaches the southern border.

The fast-track regulation is nearly certain to trigger legal challenges, Politico reported, even as the announcement of the new measure suggests the president won't ease up on an immigration crackdown that defined his campaign - and first two years in office. They are now about 600 miles away.

The impact will be that most migrants who cross the southern border illegally will no longer be eligible for asylum claims in the United States for at least 90 days.

"U.S. 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.

In an attempt to prevent the migrants from coming into the US, Trump threatened to cut off foreign aid to Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador because the governments of the countries failed to crack down on illegal immigration.

President Trump is expected to enact the rule Friday in a presidential proclamation.

The new rule is nearly certain to be challenged in courts.

Under US law, there is a legal obligation to hear asylum claims from migrants if they say they fear violence in their home countries.

"Ports of entry. are overcrowded", said Jonathan Ryan, executive director of Texas-based Refugees and Immigrant Centre for Education and Legal Services (RAICES).

A statement released by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker revealed the change in policy on Thursday. And in the last five years, the number of those requesting asylum has increased by 2,000 percent, it said.

The United States regularly sends Mexican undocumented entrants back across the border to their country, but has had difficulties gaining cooperation to repatriate Hondurans, Salvadorans and Guatemalans. Those moves have been challenged in court.
