US asylum process is at the center of Trump’s immigration ire

Homeland Security Can't Force Asylum Seekers to Wait in Mexico, Judge Rules

Immigration experts say Trump's policies and practices were causing chaos on the border and contributing to the surge of migrant families from Central America.

TRUMP: "Just so you understand, President Obama separated the children".

A seven-year-old migrant from Honduras holds the hand of his mother after a group of seven from Central America who were seeking asylum were apprehended by the U.S. Border Patrol for illegally crossing the Rio Grande river into the U.S. from Mexico in Penitas, Texas, U.S., January 9, 2019.

Trump in February had deployed an additional 3,750 USA troops to the country's southwestern border to support Customs and Border Protection agents. Trump did not achieve any change in the law.

The senior administration official who briefed reporters even as Mr. Trump was speaking said that while unilateral family separations are off the table, a policy dubbed "binary choice" is still being considered. A judge this week clipped one of Trump's latest efforts to keep asylum seekers off US soil: an experimental policy - known as Migrant Protection Protocols - requiring migrants to stay south of the USA border until their hearings. But rhetoric linking immigrants to crime and the issue of family separation present possible trouble ahead for Trump-especially with two-thirds of the public disapproving of separating families, including large majorities of Democrats and Independents.

"In my 30 years as an agent, I have never witnessed the conditions we are now facing on the Southwest border", said Rodolfo Karisch, chief patrol agent for the Border Patrol's Rio Grande Valley Sector, which is responsible for 320 miles of the almost 2,000-mile USA border with Mexico.

"The Department of Homeland Security is exercising its statutory authority to help alleviate this humanitarian and security crisis and secure our nation", Nielsen said. "We found cases where adults have been coming in with kids who are not their kids, yet they're claiming that they're their children".

In March alone, Border Patrol apprehended more than 92,000 people trying to cross the southern border, said Brian Hastings, Border Patrol chief of operations, on a conference call Tuesday.

He played for the Philadelphia Warriors from 1960-71 and later was a coach, executive and ambassador for the organization. Westphal, 68, was a five-time NBA All-Star and four-time All-NBA player as a guard, mostly with the Phoenix Suns .

"President Obama separated children".

CNN's report came just as a federal judge in Californiablocked Trump's policyof forcing some asylum-seekers to return to Mexico as they await a court appearance.

The anonymous White House official went on to describe plans to revise "credible fear" screening for officials assessing asylum applications.

No one disputes that the number of migrants seeking entry into the U.S.is swelling.

Nothing in the ruling prohibits the U.S. from detaining would-be asylum-seekers until they can be granted a court hearing, and nothing requires immigration officials to release asylum-seekers into the U.S., Seebord wrote. "And we're stopping them", he added. But last summer, HHS started receiving babies and toddlers, and there was not enough space to house them, said Jonathan White, the career civil servant tasked by Health and Human Services with helping to reunify children.

Trump has interviewed several candidates for the top job during the past week and a half, including former Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, and former acting head of ICE Thomas Homan.

"I hope members of the administration are actually listening", said Sen. The advocates say the Trump administration is exaggerating the threat to children.

Some asylum-seekers affected by the program have told the immigration judge assigned to their cases how much more hard being in Mexico has made navigating the court system.
