Ilhan Omar on Tuesday ripped the Trump Administration for wanting to have tighter asylum policies.
Omar said Trump’s policy will leave a “dark stain” in America’s history.
“We are in the midst of the worst refugee crisis since World War II—a time when the U.S. refused protections for millions fleeing Nazi persecution.
This decision—like the Muslim ban and family separation—will be remembered as a dark stain on our nation’s history,” Omar tweeted, linking a CNN article on Trump’s future asylum policies.
(CNN) — President Donald Trump on Monday evening proposed sweeping changes to how the US treats asylum-seekers, including charging fees to file asylum applications and limiting access to work permits.
Trump has repeatedly railed against the rising number of asylum-seekers, suggesting many have been coached in order to win their claims, and this is the latest move from the administration to attempt to curtail migrants from claiming asylum.
In a memo for the attorney general and homeland security secretary, Trump orders them to develop policies to settle asylum applications within 180 days of filing; require a fee for asylum applications and work permit applications; and bar migrants who have entered or attempted to enter the US illegally from receiving work authorization before any relief or protection is granted.
