For a long time now, our southern border has been under tremendous strain.
Hundreds of thousands of people have marched through South and Central America, demanding asylum.
President Trump has tried to secure our border and end ongoing problems, but Democrats in Congress have stood in his way with their own plans.
However, Trump’s administration is taking a huge step to end the problem once and for all.
From AP News:
“The Trump administration said Monday it will end asylum protections for most migrants who arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border…
According to a new rule published in the Federal Register, asylum seekers who pass through another country first will be ineligible for asylum at the U.S. southern border.”
So Trump is passing a new rule that states (with limited exceptions) if someone passed through another country first, they have to apply for asylum there—not in the U.S.
And the best part is, it goes into effect TOMORROW!
This coincides with the agreement Trump scored with Mexico; Central and South American travelers who enter Mexico first will have to apply for asylum there.
And it could have a dramatic impact on our border problems:
The vast majority of asylum seekers bombarding our border right now are from Central and South America. And of course, they have to pass through Mexico to reach our border.
So, the new rule will require them to request asylum in Mexico. They will not be eligible to request asylum here.
I really think this is a stroke of genius.
But while this move is brilliant and should work well, expect Democrats to oppose it. They will most likely try to sue the administration to block this rule, as they’ve done in the past.
Let’s get out there and show them that America wants this and we support our President 100%!
