Chuck Schumer and the Democrats have bet their entire 2020 strategy on making Donald Trump a failure.
And there is one fight they prioritize defeating President Trump over above all else.
But William Barr just announced this one change that will leave Chuck Schumer fuming.
The illegal immigration crisis at the Southern Border is an invasion.
President Trump and his administration are taking every legal step available to them to stem the flow of illegal aliens pouting over the Southern Border since Congress refuses to act.
Democrats won’t fix asylum loopholes because they believe if Donald Trump looks like a failure on immigration, then his base will stay home and the Democrat nominee will cruise to victory.
President Trump recognized that reality and ordered his administration to come up with steps he can take to stop this illegal alien invasion.
In response, Attorney General William Barr rolled out changes to asylum policy that prevent illegal aliens from requesting asylum in the United States unless they apply for asylum in another country they pass through.
The regulation will be issued jointly by the Homeland Security and Justice departments, according to the notice Monday.
Asylum officers and federal immigration judges will be required to adopt the new standard when administering screenings to determine whether a migrant has a “credible fear” of persecution in his or her home country, the first step in certain asylum claims. The Trump administration contends the previous standard was too low and allowed migrants easy passage into the U.S.
Attorney General William Barr and acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan lauded the move in written statements.
Barr argued that the new measure “will decrease forum shopping by economic migrants and those who seek to exploit our asylum system,” but will still leave other routes to seek protection.
Democrats will surely sue, but this plan will stem the tide of illegal aliens storming across Central America toward the Southern Border.
