US to deny asy­lum to il­le­gal bor­der crossers

The Hitavada - - WORLD -

THE United States will no longer al­low peo­ple who en­ter the coun­try il­le­gally to claim asy­lum, of­fi­cials has said, un­veil­ing a con­tro­ver­sial new crack­down on im­mi­gra­tion. The restric­tion on asy­lum claims will seek to ad­dress what a se­nior ad­min­is­tra­tion of­fi­cial called the “his­tor­i­cally un­par­al­leled abuse of our im­mi­gra­tion sys­tem” along the bor­der with Mex­ico. The new rule was pub­lished by the Depart­ment of Home­land Se­cu­rity and is ex­pected to get Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s sig­na­ture shortly.
