Two days after the Midterm election results became known, President Trump threw down the gauntlet towards the Democrat-controlled House with a new policy regarding asylum requests for anyone crossing the border from Mexico.

Although the mainstream US media called the Central American caravans the ‘October surprise’ of this election season, this White House administration is keen to show its supporters that ‘promises made’ are indeed ‘promises kept’

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Trump To Sign Order That Changes Asylum Rules Before Caravan Of Refugees Arrive… <a href="https://t.co/3Jg8m4qdoC">https://t.co/3Jg8m4qdoC</a></p>&mdash; Chuck Callesto (@ChuckCallesto) <a href="https://twitter.com/ChuckCallesto/status/1060634067899740161?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 8, 2018</a></blockquote>

As from now, illegal migrants entering through the southern US border with Mexico will no longer be eligible for asylum. Announced by the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security, the ruling will effectively stop asylum for those who breach any presidential restriction on entry.

The new asylum rule, known as the Interim Final Rule, was announced by Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker and Homeland Security chief Kirstjen Nielsen.

In a joint statement, they said the President has the power to "suspend the entry of all aliens" and to impose "any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate on them" if they are judged to be "detrimental" to US interests under the Immigration and Nationality Act.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">New Acting AG Matt Whitaker and DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen have a new interim rule on asylum that’s pretty much all about the caravan. <a href="https://t.co/OkWBxgKC1v">https://t.co/OkWBxgKC1v</a> <a href="https://t.co/PCfaA7oPoG">pic.twitter.com/PCfaA7oPoG</a></p>&mdash; Blair Miller (@blairmiller) <a href="https://twitter.com/blairmiller/status/1060647524204040193?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 8, 2018</a></blockquote>

"Today, we are using the authority granted to us by Congress to bar aliens who violate a Presidential suspension of entry or other restriction from asylum eligibility."

In other words, other than going through the official points of entry, any immigrant that tries to cross the border illegally as form now will no longer be eligible for asylum.

Both the ACLU (the American Civil Liberties Union) and Amnesty International decried the move as ‘illegal.’

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">FACT: US law specifically allows individuals to apply for asylum whether or not they are at a port of entry.<br><br>It is illegal to circumvent that — by agency or presidential decree. <a href="https://t.co/vVRdFEQ1qX">https://t.co/vVRdFEQ1qX</a></p>&mdash; ACLU (@ACLU) <a href="https://twitter.com/ACLU/status/1060659198298595328?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 8, 2018</a></blockquote>

<script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

The ACLU released a statement declaring: “US law specifically allows individuals to apply for asylum whether or not they are at a port of entry. It is illegal to circumvent that, by an agency or presidential decree.”

Human rights group Amnesty International said the US President was using "dehumanising rhetoric".

Its spokesman said: "Asylum is not a loophole, it is a lifeline."

"This policy needlessly places the lives of thousands of people in danger."

The Democrats better get their things in order quickly because from the looks of it with everything already done since the election result became known, Trump is gonna play some serious hardball.

Such special morons, God Bless their hearts. ~ Both the ACLU (the American Civil Liberties Union) and Amnesty International decried the move as ‘illegal.’ ~ So Crossing the border illegally is fine & dandy. Then why even have immigration laws eh? America is not an anarchist country, we are a country of law, liberty & freedom. If one want`s to be part of that, then follow the legal means to gain residency & citizenship. The stupidity of the left never ceases to amaze me.
