Trump & AG Barr Ended Asylum Protections For Most Central Americans With New Rule

President Trump and Attorney General William Barr just made s big move in an attempt to end the immigrant crisis gripping on our southern border.

In a controversial move, the Dems are already screaming against and they will definitely sue, the President just issued a new rule that will end asylum from Central America.

The law is clear that we have the right and we have a duty to act to protect our country. AG Barr claims that the order is legal and will survive any challenges in court.

The Hill reported that according to a new rule published in the Federal Register, asylum seekers who pass through another country before reaching the U.S. will be ineligible for asylum when they reach the southern U.S. border.

The new rule, which is expected to go into effect on Tuesday, is likely to face a mountain of legal challenges.

Under the rule, asylum seekers who have been the victims of trafficking are granted exceptions. The new rule also allows exceptions for immigrants passing through countries that have not signed major international refugee treaties and for those immigrants who have been denied asylum in the countries they traveled through.

Attorney General Bill Barr defended the legality of the move in a statement on Monday.

“This Rule is a lawful exercise of authority provided by Congress to restrict eligibility for asylum,” AG Barr said in the statement.

“The United States is a generous country but is being completely overwhelmed by the burdens associated with apprehending and processing hundreds of thousands of aliens along the southern border.”

Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan described the rule as an “interim” measure until Congress can act.

The move to restrict protections for most Central American asylum seekers is the latest effort by Trump’s administration to attempt to curb the number of people crossing the southern border.

The administration has attempted many times to place restrictions on the number of immigrants who can apply for asylum per day and where they must await a resolution, but most of the attempts have been blocked in court.
