Trump's Asylum Order to Face Legal Challenge

President Trump's plan to reshape U.S. rules about asylum seekers are going to end up in court.


Trump's Asylum Order to Face Legal Challenge

President Trump's  latest efforts  to change U.S. immigration rules for asylum seekers are almost certain to run into legal challenges.

Current U.S. law says immigrants may apply for asylum no matter where they enter the country.

The Trump administration wants to restrict that law to bar anyone who doesn't arrive through an official entry point from claiming asylum.

The White House argues Trump has the  unilateral power  to suspend immigration whenever their entry would be "detrimental to the interests of the United States." The president has spent weeks arguing that a caravan of Central American migrants heading towards the U.S. represents a threat to the country.

But the White House has been  overruled on  immigration issues before.

Trump's ban on travel from certain majority-Muslim countries and efforts to end the DACA program protecting certain undocumented immigrants from deportation were both initially blocked in court.

The Supreme Court ended up allowing Trump's travel ban to move forward, and is set to review his DACA rollback.

But there's no formal consequences for breaking those rules, and protections for asylum seekers have been eroded around the world in the face of recent waves of immigration.
