United States proposes banning asylum through southern border

Trump just announced a big change to immigration policy – and it will affect caravan migrants
President Donald Trump has blamed USA asylum rules for luring thousands of migrants a year from Central American countries.
The regulations will be incorporated in a proclamation expected to be issued Friday by President Donald Trump.
US Army troops enter a compound where the military is erecting an encampment near the US-Mexico border crossing at Donna, Texas.
Administration officials described the new policy as necessary to combat what they see as rampant abuse of the existing system, noting that most migrants who request asylum under the current process are ultimately denied.
"The interim rule, if applied to a hypothetical proclamation suspending the entry of aliens who cross the border unlawfully, would bar them from eligibility for asylum, and thereby channel inadmissible aliens to ports of entry, where they would be processed in a controlled, orderly, and lawful manner", one senior administration official told reporters on a conference call Thursday afternoon.
The 9th Circuit concluded that the Department of Homeland Security was wrong to assert that DACA is illegal, writing that the program is "a permissible exercise of executive discretion", and therefore those who have sought to challenge the administration's move to rescind it "are likely to succeed".
Justice and Homeland Security officials said Thursday that President Donald Trump would make good on his pre-election promise last week to crack down on asylum seekers in response to a migrant caravan heading toward the USA southern border.
The new rule comes as a so-called caravan of migrants from Central America travels north by foot through Mexico to the US border. Immigrants would have to apply for asylum status at designated points of entry, and those already in the country illegally would not be able to apply. More than 7,000 active duty troops could eventually be deployed, Defense Department officials said. Claims have spiked in recent years, and there is a backlog of more than 800,000 cases pending in immigration court. Those issues were not addressed by the regulations Thursday.
Later, at a campaign rally in Missouri, Trump offered additional remarks on the topic, saying, "Under this plan, the illegal aliens will no longer get a free pass into the country by lodging meritless claims in seeking asylum".
The move would limit the ability of migrants seeking asylum at the border.
It's unclear how many people en route to the US will even make it to the border.
Drawing on national security powers, the Departments of Homeland Security and Justice issued a fast-track rule barring immigrants from seeking asylum if they first enter the USA illegally. The migrants are largely poor people and many say they're fleeing violence; more than 1,700 were children under 18, and more than 300 were children under age 5.
