Trump Issues Proclamation Revoking Asylum Eligibility From Migrants Who Cross Southwest Border Illegally

President Donald Trump issued a proclamation on Friday that makes anyone caught crossing the southwest border illegally ineligible for asylum, a major change to U.S. immigration policy that seeks to reverse the rising tide of migration from Central America.

The order, which takes effect midnight Saturday, suspends for 90 days the entry of any alien across the U.S.-Mexico border, with broad exceptions for people who present themselves for inspection at ports of entry and legal permanent residents.

When combined with a new asylum regulation issued Thursday, the practical effect of the proclamation is to limits asylum protections to only those migrants who present themselves at U.S. ports of entry. Administration officials say the ultimate aim of the policy is to channel asylum seekers away from illegal border crossings, which have surged this year amid a wave of Central American migrants….

How Trump Is Toughening Asylum Rules For Immigrants

President Donald Trump’s administration is clamping down on asylum rules for immigrants coming to the United States, the White House announced Thursday.

The Department of Homeland Security and the Justice Department jointly issued a new rule requiring that immigrants seeking asylum along the southern border must present themselves lawfully at a port of entry.

Trump will sign a proclamation with specifics. The president last week announced his intention to do so.

The new rule is aimed at ensuring illegal immigrants who are subject to the terms of the proclamation that Trump issues are not eligible for asylum.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker issued a joint statement on the new policy….

‘Migrant Caravan’ Members Sue Trump Over ‘Shockingly Unconstitutional’ Asylum Crackdown

President Trump’s rhetoric about the organized ‘caravans’ of migrants plodding toward the US border has been nothing short of incendiary, as the president has threatened to send as many as 15,000 troops to the border to stop the mobs of “dangerous people” from entering the country. Among other claims, Trump hinted that he might ask soldiers to fire on the migrants if they start pelting border agents with rocks, and that he would be building “massive cities of tents” to house the would-be asylum seekers as they await their hearings in an effort to end the “abuse” of the US asylum seekers.

Well, apparently these remarks haven’t sat well with members of the caravan and their shadowy financial backers, because a group of 12 migrants, six of them children, have filed a lawsuit against Trump, claiming his efforts to beef up security along the border, and threats to deprive them of asylum, represent “shockingly unconstitutional” attacks on their rights, according to Fox News….

Donald Trump’s Wise Challenge To Birthright Citizenship

Among the reasons Donald Trump is president is that his natural political instincts are superior to those of any other current figure.

As campaign 2018 entered its final week, Trump seized upon and elevated the single issue that most energizes his populist base and most convulses our media elite.

Warning of an “invasion,” he pointed to the migrant caravan that had come out of Honduras and was wending its way through Mexico. He then threatened to issue an executive order ending birthright citizenship.

As other caravans began to assemble in Central America, Trump said he would send first 5,200 and then 15,000 troops to the border….

How Border Security Can Help End The Opioid Crisis

In my decades of public service, I’ve never seen anything like the opioid epidemic ravaging our nation right now. Last year, nearly 50,000 Americans died from overdoses involving opioids. That was an increase of nearly 7,000 from 2016—which was itself an increase of about 9,000 from 2015. The numbers have been climbing for nearly two decades now, thanks in large part to the introduction of a synthetic drug called fentanyl.

Fentanyl is powerful pain medication—100 times stronger than morphine—often used as a sedative for large animals. Just 2 milligrams of the substance is lethal to an adult, making it almost as deadly as ricin. What has made it especially fatal is that it is now often laced into other drugs, such as heroin, pills, and even marijuana, without the users knowing it. Narcotics Police have even abandoned field tests of drugs out of fear they may accidentally come into contact with fentanyl….

Trump Reveals How Military Will Engage Migrants, Blasts Human Traffickers

President Donald Trump revealed during a White House press conference on Thursday that he told the military to treat rock-throwing migrants as if they were armed with rifles. He also slammed human traffickers, calling them “the lowest scum on earth.”

Trump held the press conference in response to what the administration has deemed a “crisis at our southern border” as thousands of migrants from Central and South America are days away from reaching the U.S. Border….

US Civil Rights Commissioner: Race Has Nothing To Do With Normal Americans’ Opposition To Illegal Immigration

Men in the migrant caravan cheer as they clash with Mexican riot police at the border between Mexico and Guatemala on October 19, 2018 in Ciudad Tecun Uman, Guatemala. Migrants and police faced off when the caravan of thousands of migrants tried to cross into Mexico after pushing past Guatemalan security forces.

The liberal media pundits who pillory President Trump for his firm stand against illegal immigration don’t have to worry about low-skilled foreigners taking their jobs or moving to their neighborhoods, so they can afford to be “politically correct,” said Peter Kirsanow, who is currently serving a third, six-year term on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights.

“Until they are threatened in terms of their job prospects or the quality of life in their neighborhoods, they can continue to engage in this political correctness,” Kirsanow told Fox News’s Tucker Carlson Wednesday night….
