WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump offers to pay asylum-seekers a fee for reviewing their applications as he continues to try to stop the burst of migrants in Central America trying to move to the United States
The Memorandum, signed on Monday, Trump sent his the Attorney General and the Secretary-General for internal security to take additional measures to repair the asylum system, which he insists on "being in crisis" and suffering from "unbridled abuses".
a number of government proposals that are trying to cope with the burst of migrant families who arrive at the southern border, overloading federal resources and complicating Trump's efforts to demand a victory at the border when he fights for re-election. Most come to say that they are fleeing violence and poverty, and many are asking for asylum under American and international law.
Within the note, Trump provides officials with 90 days to come up with new rules to ensure that applications are dealt with within 180
And he directs officials to start charging for applications for asylum and employment permits, which are currently not required to pay.
The White House and DHS representatives did not immediately answer the question of how many applicants may be forced to pay, and it is unclear how many families fleeing poverty will be able to afford such a fee.
The note says that the price will not exceed the cost of processing applications, but officials have done
Trump also wants to ban anyone who went to or attempted to go to the country illegally obtaining a temporary permit and calls on officials to immediately abolish work permits, when individuals are denied the right to provide asylum and will be ordered to leave the country.
He also calls for national security to re-appoint immigration officers and any other staff "in order to improve the integrity of court decisions for reliable and well-founded fear claims, to strengthen compliance with immigration laws, and to ensure compliance with the law by foreigners who have a final disposal order .
Arrests along the southern border have risen dramatically in recent months, with agents who make over 100,000 arrests or denials in March, a 12-year maximum.
