ACTING DIRECTOR OF US CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION SERVICES Ken Cuccinelli announced the new Trump administration asylum overhaul on Fox News this morning with Bill Hemmer:
The new rules require asylum seekers to apply for asylum in the first country they enter instead of the US. The current system is full of fraud and abuse. America has been generous with asylum, but the loopholes have allowed the invasion at the border.
Bill Hemmer asked what took so long…great question!
Cuccinelli says the move was done between two departments. The DOJ and Homeland Security worked to produce these asylum changes.
H/T: Gateway Pundit
Cuccinelli made the shocking claim that 90% of asylum claims at the border are fraudulent!
These fraudulent asylum seekers are “clogging the system.”
