President Donald Trump is taking bold action to end fraud in the United States asylum process.
According to Breitbart News, “Trump’s administration finalized Department of Homeland Security (DHS) rules that seek to end asylum shopping and reduce fraud in the United States’ asylum process.”
The new regulations will take place in 2021. The changes are aimed at preventing people from bypassing other countries and only gaining entrance into America.
Breitbart clarifies Trump’s new rule:
Specifically, the regulations solidify that most border crossers seeking asylum through the southern border will have to first seek asylum in Mexico, which has a rigorous asylum process.
The same rule has applied to the U.S. northern border with Canada for years, successfully, where foreign nationals cannot asylum shop and instead must seek asylum in the first safe country they enter.
