Migrant Caravan Grinds To A Halt As US Throws Up A Major Legal Stumbling Block

The United States is constantly fighting to keep illegal aliens out, especially with Donald Trump at the helm.

But we can’t do it all on our own. Other countries should play their role in upholding the law as well.

The migrant caravan that just recently arrived at our southern border is a perfect example of more illegals attempting to exploit loopholes in the system.

Many will be seeking asylum in this country, for example. But Homeland Security Defense Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has some bad news for them:

She says they can’t approach America UNTIL they’ve been granted asylum in another safe country.

This is a very big deal, America!

This legal roadblock means if the migrants don’t get asylum in another country first, they absolutely cannot get into the U.S. yet.

It would slow their advance at the very least and at best, it would keep many of them out of the U.S. entirely.

Via Breitbart:

Individuals of the ‘caravan’ seeking asylum or other similar claims should seek protections in the first safe country they enter, including Mexico,” Nielsen said in an April 25 statement.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions used similar language in an April 23 statement about the caravan migrants, saying ‘these individuals—and their smugglers—ignored the willingness of the Mexican government to allow them to stay in Mexico.’

This could help U.S. immigration judges quickly reject migrants’ requests to file asylum claims in this country.

Mexico DOES offer asylum to individuals from Central America, as do other safe countries.

If the legal process can actually begin elsewhere, it would save America millions of dollars and hundreds of useless man hours, which is a gigantic benefit.

That right there is the perfect solution, provided we can get this to happen. Aren’t we all tired of the endless flow of illegals, fellow citizens?
