Trump administration officials say they have started to implement a new policy that effectively denies asylum to most migrants at the Southern border, in the wake of a Supreme Court ruling on the policy.
A spokeswoman for the Homeland Security agency that conducts asylum interviews says the policy will be retroactive to July 16, when the initial rule was announced.
The article goes on to state the following:
The new rules deny asylum to anyone coming to the U.S.-Mexico border who has not already sought the protection first in another country.
Most asylum seekers pass an initial screening called a “credible fear” interview. Under the new policy, they would fail the test unless they sought asylum in at least one country they traveled through and were denied.
The Trump administration is putting a tough new asylum rule into effect.
