With thousands of asylum seekers at our Southern border and thousands more on the way, the president has reached an agreement with Mexico, that the migrants can remain in Mexico until their asylum case is heard. There is a very good reason why he did that. The length of time it takes to process an asylum case is longer than the amount of time, the government is allowed to hold them. Once released pending the case outcome, many of them go underground and never report for their hearing. Pro illegal immigration groups now plan to sue the president, to force him to allow migrants who do not qualify for asylum to come into the country and hide from authorities.
“Refusing to process children very clearly violates the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act, written specifically to protect this vulnerable population,” Lisa Frydman, vice president of Kids in Need of Defense, a nonprofit that helps unaccompanied children, said Friday. Frydman described the the Tijuana shelters that unaccompanied children stay in as “squalid.”
However, the Trump administration argues that the new policy stops migrants from abusing the U.S. asylum process by entering the country and never showing up to their immigration court hearings.
The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) recorded 78,564 requests for asylum in 2017, a dramatic uptick from the 13,880 requests made in 2012. The requests have only increased, with the USCIS recording a record-setting 99,035 asylum requests — 62,609 of which included Guatemalans, Salvadorians and Hondurans — during the 2018 fiscal year.
