Trump readies new rule to curb abuse of asylum system


HAPPY MONDAY. I’M SANDRA SMITH. RIGHT NOW THE TRURM ADMINISTRATION IS PREPARING TO BEGIN BRIEFING OFFICIALS ON HIS NEW PLAN ON CAPITOL HILL TODAY.>>Bill: LET’S BRING IN — WELCOME TO OUR PROGRAM TO YOU. WHAT’S THE NEW RULE?>>SO THE NEW RULE IS INTENDED TO AVOID ABUSE OF THE ASYLUM SYSTEM WHICH IS OVERWHELMING PARTS OF THE SYSTEM WHILE THE BORDER IS OVERWHELMED BY INSTITUTING A REQUIREMENT THAT PEOPLE WHO COME TO OUR BORDER MUST HAVE AND WANT TO APLAY FOR ASYLUM MUST HAVE ALREADY APPLIED AND BEEN DENIED AT A COUNTRY THEY PASSED THROUGH. REMEMBER ASYLUM IS ABOUT SAFETY, NOT A CHOICE OF FORUM. IT’S NOT FORUM SHOPPING. YOU WANT TO GET PEOPLE SAFE. THIS IS SOMETHING AMERICA HAS BEEN GENEROUS ABOUT IN THE PAST AND YET IT IS BEING FRAUDULENTLY ABUSED RIGHT NOW AND PART OF WHAT IS CAUSING THE CRISIS AT THE BORDER.>>Bill: WHY DO IT NOW? A FEW QUESTIONS, WHY NOW, WHY NOT SEVERAL MONTHS AGO?>>WELL, A LOT OF WORK GOES INTO A REGULATORY IMPLEMENTATION LIKE THIS. AND IT’S BETWEEN TWO DEPARTMENTS. IT’S DONE BETWEEN THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE AND THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY. IT TAKES A WHILE TO WORK THROUGH. OF COURSE, YOU’VE ALSO HEARD US ALL OF US AND WE’RE STILL SAYING IT IN THE ADMINISTRATION, WE WOULD LIKE TO SEE CONGRESS ADDRESS THESE ASYLUM LOOPHOLES. THEY CONTINUE TO FAIL TO DO SO EXCEPT SENATOR GRAHAM HAS BEEN WORKING ON SOMETHING. THE HOUSE PUT OUT THAT YOUR CALENDAR WITH NOTHING ON IT. NO INTENTION OF ADDRESSING THE PROBLEM. THE PRESIDENT HAS INSTRUCTED US TO DO — TAKE THE STEPS WITHIN OUR LEGAL AUTHORITY TO START TO DISSUADE FRAUDULENT APPLICANTS IN OUR ASYLUM SYSTEM. AS I SAID WE’RE SWAMPED OVER 300,000 CASE BACKLOG IN ASYLUM AND OVER 800,000 CASE IMMIGRATION CASE BACKLOG IN THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE.>>Bill: HAVE YOU COMMUNICATED WITH MEXICO ON THIS IDEA?>>THIS HAS BEEN PART OF THE DISCUSSION WITH OTHER COUNTRIES AND THOSE DISCUSSIONS AS YOU’VE SEEN IN 2019, BILL, HAVE BEEN VERY PRODUCTIVE. WE HAVE GOTTEN MORE COOPERATION FROM MEXICO THIS YEAR THAN I CAN EVER REMEMBER. WE HOPE IT WILL CONTINUE AND EXPAND. THIS IS GOING TO SEND A CLEAR MESSAGE, THOUGH, TO PEOPLE CONSIDERING COMING UP ILLEGALLY TO THIS COUNTRY TO OVERWHELMING OUR BORDERS WITH THE HOPE THEY’LL GET BY THAT FIRST HURDLE AND THEN DISAPPEAR INTO OUR INTERIOR. THAT ISN’T GOING TO HAPPEN ANYMORE.>>Bill: CAN IT BE CHALLENGED IN A LEGAL SENSE?>>WELL, GOD BLESS AMERICA ANYBODY CAN SUE YOU FOR ANYTHING. DOESN’T MEAN THEY GET TO WIN. I’VE BEEN THROUGH THIS REGULATION AND THE LEGAL FOUNDATION FOR IT. IT IS EXTREMELY STRONG. BASED ON THE IMMIGRATION AND NATIONALITY ACT. IT IS CONSISTENT WITH PREVIOUS TYPES OF REGULATIONS THAT HAVE BEEN PUT IN PLACE UNDER THAT LEGAL AUTHORITY BY BOTH REPUBLICAN AND DEMOCRAT ADMINISTRATIONS. SO WE START FROM A VERY STRONG LEGAL POSITION WITH THIS AND WE WOULDN’T MOVE FORWARD IF WE DIDN’T THINK WE COULD DEFEND IT SUCCESSFULLY.>>Bill: WERE YOU THE ONE PUSHING FOR THIS OR WHO?>>IT WASN’T JUST ME AND YOU RECALL I’VE BEEN ACTING DIRECTOR OF USCIS SINCE ONLY THE BEGINNING OF SUMMER. THIS WORK BEGAN SOMETIME BEFORE I GOT THERE. THIS IS CERTAINLY IN THE AVENUE OF EFFORTS THAT I’M ADVOCATING FOR AND PUSHING AND PEOPLE ARE WORKING VERY HARD EVERY DAY TO ACCOMPLISH.>>Bill: IN A POSITIVE OUTCOME GIVEN THIS RULE I WILL CALL IT, WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO COME FROM IT, SIR?>>THAT’S AN EXCELLENT QUESTION, BILL. WHAT WE HOPE TO COME FROM IT IS THAT THE PEOPLE ACTUALLY CLAIMING ASYLUM AT OUR SOUTHERN BORDER ARE LEGIT. THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE CLOGGING OUR LEGAL AND LEGITIMATE ASYLUM CLAIMS WITH ILLEGITIMATE CLAIMS. WE HAVE A GRANT RATE OF ASYLUM OF BARELY OVER 10%. THAT MEANS ALMOST 90% OF THE PEOPLE POURING THEMSELVES INTO OUR ASYLUM SYSTEM REALLY DON’T HAVE A SHOT AT OBTAINING ASYLUM IN THIS COUNTRY AND THEY’RE CLOGGING THE SYSTEM FOR LEGITIMATE CLAIMS OF PERSECUTION FOR POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS REASONS AND ALL THE OTHER REASONS.>>Bill: LET’S SEE IF IT — THE ICE RAIDS OVER THE WEEKEND. WHAT CAN YOU REPORT ON NUMBERS?>>NO REPORTS ON NUMBERS OR STATUS OF OPERATIONS. WE WILL LEAVE THAT TO ICE. AND REALLY I THINK YOU CAN EXPECT THAT TO COME OUT SLOWLY INFORMATION BECAUSE IT’S SOMETHING THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES ARE LOATH TO BE TOO DETAILED ABOUT TOO QUICKLY PARTICULARLY WHEN YOU SEE SO MUCH VITRIOL BEING THROWN AT ICE.>>Bill: THIS IS MORE BARK THAN BITE. MORE MESSAGE THAN EXECUTION, IS THAT A FAIR CHARACTERIZATION?>>I WOULDN’T ACCEPT THAT ON BEHALF OF THE ADMINISTRATION. ICE IS DOING THEIR JOB EVERY DAY. A SIGN OF HOW FAR WE’VE FALLEN THAT IT IS EVEN NEWSWORTHY. THEY GO AFTER EMPLOYERS BREAKING THE LAW AND ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WHO HAVE REMOVAL ORDERS. OVER A MILLION OF THOSE IN THE COUNTRY. THEY DO THAT ON A DAILY BASIS. THE FACT THAT THERE IS SO MUCH PUBLICITY AROUND CURRENT EFFORTS TENDS TO LOSE ALL OF THE OTHER EFFORTS THAT GOOD, LOYAL, PROFESSIONAL ICE AGENTS ARE MAKING EVERY DAY.>>Bill: THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME TODAY.

  • Why does FOX continue to show the kids in cages with foil blankets without the 2014 date on it?
    (Not that I think the cages (fencing) is bad or anything; but the socialists seem to have a problem with them)

  • sciblue27 anangrymaninthelightofthelord says:

    Is it just me or does it seem like this is all about job security for a group of lawyers all these court cases everything or all filed by lawyers instead of filed by citizens or else they're filed by lawyers on behalf of some supposedly nonprofit or non-governmental agency and in reality it's a bunch of lawyers trying to get involved in politics that's how it appears to most people and my honest opinion the only one who is different is Judicial Watch they're actually doing it through donations of American people's money on behalf of the American people and on behalf of the justice system everybody feel sorry for these people certainly we wish we could help them but we cannot take care of our own homeless veterans how can we possibly take care of all these other people and they complain about criminal aliens in cages why aren't they complaining about criminals in prison is there a difference other than illegal aliens can leave anytime they want they can always leave and go back home

  • Its about GD time they implement this ruling!! According to what I've read, a person seeking asylum must ask for such in the first country they come to after leaving the country they are fleeing. Of course, these third world people want to come to the U.S. because the freebies are more abundant. We saw this when the throngs of so-called, 'refugees' overwhelmed some countries of Europe but would not stay because their intended destinations were countries where the benefits were more generous. BTW, the VAST numbers of those invaders were young, single men of military age, NOT families. We've seen this act before!!!

  • I would revamp congress,2 four yr terms and revamp their pension plan. NO MORE becoming millionairs just for being a GOV.employee

  • how hard would it be to get an in route country to issue a denial? and why? what will we do with them if they violate that rule? continue in the land like before, or judge as to their right to appeal?

  • Michael Olsen says:

    Thank You so Very Much President Donald J. Trump, for helping all of us. We, the Citizens of our United States, NEED you, to survive this current assault on our Democracy. Everything you do is in our interest and WE know that. We appreciate, and love you. WE realize we are under a major attack to our Democracy. WE so very mush appreciate that you are "cleaning out the Samp." We are SO sorry you have to face all this slander crap from the enemy/opposition from "Gimme Gimme Party." Please know that WE all support ou and will make sure you are re-elected, because we are NOT stupid dead end, brain dead people.
    WE want to retain our Democracy and rid ourselves of ALL the crooked Politicians who are only in it for personal gain. GOOD JOB calling out the new enemies in our Congress. WE agree, :they have to go…Thank You, Mr. President Donald Trump. You Rock! Only a Democrat induced, ridiculous voter fraud could possibly keep you from a vital second term as our President. Pleas don't let that happen tis time. YOU are The MAN, we need to survive.

  • Filomena Braschi says:

    If t he dems don't want to cooperate with the President withhold their salaries indefinitely until they come to the table and come up with a plan that is agreeable with our President. These dems have gotten away with far too much, it's time to end their 'hostage attitude' over our Pres. After all, he is running our country alone, there is no help from anyone.What did the american people vote them into office for? They are not passing any laws , they haven't done a thing for 2 1/2 years except scream about collusion. Nancy Pelosi should be removed from her post and put someone else in that will get these dems to shape up!

  • The ONLY thing getting done in our government is by EXECUTIVE ORDER. Vote out all dems in 2020 and THIS time- no excuse for Repubs not fixing our immigration laws!

  • Kasthoorie Pollmeier says:

    Europe has been doing that for 4 yrs/a lot of countries in the EU have sent them back to the First country that they passed through- the only country that didn't do that is GERMANY who are paying the PRICE that it's given MERKLE THE SHAKES LOL

  • FOX NEWS.. this is not a new rule. this is the actual law. and has been. International law states you are not allowed to country shop while seeking asylum. there are also very clear cut rules on what asylum is.

  • Michael Ledford says:

    As usual president Donald J Trump keeping campaign promises while creating work arounds of the lawyer/snakes who make up democrat party members of the house who are anti American.

  • 1tired citizen says:

    This congress may as well go on vacation for the next 16 months considering what they have accomplished in the past 30 months.

  • Oh., No Democrat voters are leaving O.O Here is how the Democrats work together with the cartels. The Cartels are paid by the immigrant's many thousands(10,000 dollars). Lucky for them the Cartel gives out credit that the immigrants can work off when they get in the US. The Cartel gets them a house that they PACK FULL of immigrants. The immigrants are slaves to the Cartel. The Democrats buy votes from the Cartels off of the slaves. The Democrats use politics and the mainstream media to push to keep the border open. The Democrats sold arms to the Cartels a few years ago. The guns were linked in the killing of some US officers.

  • I'm very unhappy with those American companies with a owner, HR personnel, upper and middle management that insist on hiring illegal ALIEN CRIMINALS. This is by harboring of these very unfairly paid,. non offered health care and take advantage and treat these Illegal ALIEN CRIMINALS very poorly by scrutinizing and unfairly take advantage of these hard up ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINALS that are also being arrested. When they hire a ILLEGAL ALIEN CRIMINAL, they are committing crimes against the government and the American people by hiring and exploiting the ILLEGAL ALIEN criminal that doesn't know any better because they simply don't speak English.

  • What do we hope will be the outcome of this? Ridiculous question. 100,000 – 300,000 asylum seekers is costing the American taxpayers B I L L I O N S! We hope to NOT BANKRUPT AMERICA. Get it?

  • Sgt oldschool says:

    A better rule, if you violate any immigration laws ( like illegal entry) your application for asylum is denied and you are permanently barred. You are then deported immediately.

  • Awareness Network says:

    Phenomenally excellent move! Smart and effective strategy. Between the wall and ICE deportations, this will be a great component to stopping the overwhelming influx of immigration of "asylum seekers" who are obviously just invading our country.

  • the dnc is counting those 300,000 potential voters like tyson counts hatchlings. if 50 percent of 'em survive the trip, great.

  • This is so Great and American. And the fact it was never before done shows how easy it is. No 10000 words no Court simple if your running from danger or oppression and you move through another Counter before reaching the United States of America. Then you must seek Asylum in the first Country you get to and get denied oe you cant apply in the USA for asylum. This is a start at fully revamping the nonworking immigration policy that the USA is saddled with.

  • Please go back to your country, Mr TrumpSS, go back to Germany. And take your illegal in-laws with you. Please go.

  • barbara kvistad says:

    Exactly! Our asylum system is being “fraudulently abused.” People seeking asylum need to do so in the first country in which they travel through, i.e., Mexico. Then they can only seek asylum in the USA 🇺🇸 only if asylum has been denied in Mexico. Currently only 10% of people seeking asylum in the USA 🇺🇸 have valid claims. The rest are fraudulent claims because these cheaters want to get into our country illegally, either by crossing the border illegally, having false (illegal) documents, or by illegally claiming asylum in the USA 🇺🇸 when they have no right to do so.

  • Giordano Bruno says:

    Send the migrants to Europe! Germany especially will pay them a fortune, and they don't have to work! It's like paradise!

  • Kendra Bennett- Army Veteran-TI says:

    Latin American here, and I AM On Our ( American Citizens) Side. Mr. President, there are many of us ( Latin Americans) who fully support you, more than they'll ever say. Get them out! American Citizens FIRST! Thank you President Trump for saving our country!

  • Congress (Democrats) will not give in to the border crisis . They don’t want to give trump another win. That is why they will lose in 2020 . We the people are tired of this incompetent people .

  • rust in peace says:

    I hope it becomes law I ask myself how in the world can any intelligent morally upright real american still vote democrat it just boggles the mind 😲

  • Just another way for them to get to stay here. All they have to do is get Mexico to turn them down. Of course Mexico will cause Mexico doesn't want them either. Asylum requires leaving an unsafe country. Many of these countries being left are not unsafe but need the people to make the government better.

  • Trump 2020 🇺🇸
    I really wish we could keep those who would truly appreciate being here with all the welfare system abusers.

  • Since when was Mexico a superior country and first world country 😂? This the dumbest law ever , United Stated is the most powerful nation that is supposed to be the rule model and help other nations and humans who are seeking help but I guess they giving first place to Mexico or China and Russia 😂 USA has become a joke !

  • trump own ignorance,cutting funding,his zero tolerance policy has caused much of the prob,and now he want to make seeking help illegal or hard,so humane,but what do you expect from a man who puts children in jail

  • Jeanette Bolding says:

    1,100,000 back-logged cases. This represents People who have come Into the Country illegally and jumped the immigration cue by claiming asylum.

  • TheFinnmacool says:

    Friends, we are under invasion. INVASION! The President MUST do something. Like arrest CONgress for dereliction!

  • The Democrats refuse to stop illegal immigration even though they were all for stopping it (they are on record) during the Obama years. President Trump is doing everything he can to stop it. Trump 2020

  • and, as usual, the mainstream media reported it incorrectly; they stated that trump has said that if they travel through mexico, etc, then they are automatically disqualified from requesting asylum from us.

  • David Anthony says:

    WHEN AMERICANS ARE UNHAPPY THE PRESIDENT HAS TO LEAVE!
    DONALD TRUMP WANTS TO WIN IN 2020 ONLY TO AVOID PRISON AND FURTHER DRAIN TAX DOLLARS CREATING CHAOS AND DRAMA!
    IF WHITE NATIONALIST OVERPOWER WASHINGTON IN THE NEAR FUTURE, THEY WILL NOT STOP AT TARGETING BLACK PEOPLE!
    TRUMP IS AL QUAEDA'S EQUAL, NO MORE EXTREMIST HATE IN THE WHITE HOUSE!
    DUMP TRUMP! DUMP TRUMP! DUMP TRUMP! DUMP TRUMP! DUMP TRUMP! DUMP TRUMP! DUMP TRUMP! DUMP TRUMP! DUMP TRUMP! ~ KEEP ON VOTING BLUE!

  • Crank I. T. C. Paranormal Special ghost person says:

    This is the SOLUTION!!!! Ding !Ding!! If this is a International Law it should be Up held and ENFOrced!! This is the first thing I have heard that makes sense!

  • Send all those Central American scumbags crossing illegally to North Korea. I think that’s a fair punishment!

  • Charles Eheli says:

    What a president, honest down to earth, caring, loving, worked for the people. WHERE ARE YOU PRESIDENT OBAMA?

  • The Other Side says:

    Let's look at this generally. Forget about Trump and US. Let's look at asylum seeking and understand the inhumane logic behind Trump's decision.

    Can someone expose a crime being committed by their own government while living in their country and afterwards, apply for asylum elsewhere?
    Would the person make it out alive?
    Is the person not supposed to live the country before exposing anything?

    So when Trump ends asylum seeking on the border, has he not effectively ended people seeking to live their South American countries due to threats?
    Does he expect people who are targets to sit around within the reach of their assailants and then begin the rigorous process of being granted asylum?

    I want to understand the logic behind this decision by Trump and why his supporters are cheering it.

  • Miranda Reyes says:

    IM GONNA SAY THIS ONCE “AMERICANS ARE IMMIGRANTS THEY MIGRATED FROM THEIR COUNTRY AND TOOK OVER THE NATIVES AND THEIR LAND AND MADE THIS THEIR COUNTRY “ WHY DONT YOU MUTHERFUCKERS GO BACK TO WHERE U CAME FROM !!!!! WHY CANT PEOPLE COME TO THIS COUNTRY FOR FREEDOM LIKE OUR FOUNDING FATHERS DID IF THE FOUNDING FATHERS WERE STILL ALIVE THEY WOULD BE LAUGHING AT ALL OF YOU IGNORANT PEOLE

  • to
    GUNTHERSHELL; how about NO PAY RISING for Congress (EVER!) or, at least untiil they start to SERVE the American People, not their globalist masters?

  • All over the country, devout Christians look at Trump's cruel treatment of illegal immigrants and ask themselves: "What would Jesus do?"
    Then they say, "Just kidding!" and support Trump.
