You're joking right? Where are folks seeking asylum going to stay when their case for asylum is being considered? If that is a US port of entry, doesn't that still assume that the applicant would be allowed to legally enter the US pending review of their case?


That's the issue. Before Trump, those seeking asylum at an entry point (as they should), were being let go with a promise to show up for a hearing assuming their initial claim had any merit. The problem was/is that many would just disappear and not show for their hearing.

Those entering illegally and then seeking asylum got the same treatment (let go until they got a hearing), but with Trump, I doubt that those that entered illegally would now be looking for a government agency to claim asylum.

Trump tried to improve the situation by holding the asylum seekers until they could have a hearing, plus the law/precedent doesn't allow holding parents and children together for more than a month. So now there is a mess, and there are no easy answers. Somehow we need to get control.

I didn't research this, just my recollection.


So are you proud of the Trump solution, which has resulted in massive sexual assaults of those held under Trump’s “no tolerance” program?
