In a signal to his base that there truly is no bottom, Trump is moving to end asylum protections for most Central American migrants. The rule even applies to children who cross the border alone. #RacistPresident #mondaymotivation #mondaymorning
This is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. ⚠️ Trump to implement new rule that would effectively end asylum: asylum seekers who pass through another country first will be INELIGIBLE for asylum at U.S. southern border, including children who have crossed the border alone.
This is another targeted, xenophobic attack from the Trump administration. As president, I’ll reinstate TPS designations and Deferred Enforced Departure to protect those at risk back in their home countries, including migrants from Central America.

Trump moves to effectively end asylum at Southern border: I am not a lawyer but unilaterally declaring Mexico a safe third country and blanket refusing to hear asylum claims seems legally, uh, ambitious.

Our Statue of Liberty invites in the tired, the poor, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Now President Trump wants to slam the door in the face of children and families fleeing war, poverty, and violence. It’s cruel. It’s not who we are.
