Asy­lum seek­ers to wait in Mex­ico start­ing Fri­day

The Tribune (SLO) - - Nation & World -

The Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion on Fri­day will start forc­ing some asy­lum seek­ers to wait in Mex­ico while their cases wind through U.S. courts, an of­fi­cial said, launch­ing what could be­come one of the more sig­nif­i­cant changes to the im­mi­gra­tion sys­tem in years.

The changes will be in­tro­duced at San Diego’s San Ysidro border cross­ing, ac­cord­ing to a U.S. of­fi­cial fa­mil­iar with the plan. San Ysidro is the na­tion’s busiest cross­ing.

The pol­icy, which is ex­pected to face a le­gal chal­lenge, may ex­pand to other cross­ings. It does not ap­ply to chil­dren trav­el­ing alone or to asy­lum seek­ers from Mex­ico.
