Trump Administration Creates New Barrier For Immigrants Seeking U.S. Asylum

The Trump administration unveiled a new rule to bar almost all migrants from applying for asylum at the southern border.

Under the new rule, migrants are required to first pursue safe haven in a third country on the way to the United States.

The new rule was announced by the Department of Homeland Security, in a statement issued with the Department of Justice.

The American Civil Liberties Union called the new rule โ€œpatently unlawfulโ€ and vowed to file a lawsuit against it, says Reuters.
