New restriction on asylum seekers in U.S.

On Thursday the Trump administration announced that they have implemented new restrictions on migrants seeking asylum in the United States, citing an “overwhelmed” asylum system, reports the Guardian.

The new regulation is being criticized by experts, who claim that it violates immigration laws. Under the restriction, people can only apply for asylum at official entry points along the U.S.-Mexico border. However, according to the Immigration and Nationality Act, “any person can apply for asylum whether or not at a designated port of arrival.”

Beth Werlin, executive director of the American Immigration Council, commented on the administration’s attempt to implement an illegal immigration restriction.

“In its rush to obstruct asylum seekers, the administration is attempting an end run around the law. Congress has spoken clearly. Individuals are not required to ask for asylum at a port of entry. Any person in the United States must have access to the asylum process.”
