It has just been announced, that a Federal Judge in San Francisco (where the hell else) has just overruled Trump’s Executive Order that only those coming to a port of entry would be considered for asylum pursuant to a lawful process. .The judge noted in his ruling, that only congress can change or make law regarding immigration/asylum.
In other words, people can enter the country any way they can and anywhere along the border and file for asylum. Of course, what this means is those currently gathered near ports of entry and planning to seek asylum, can - and probably will - enter the US anywhere they can sneak across the border.
I think the dysfunctional Republican majority in congress must take some responsibility for not being pro-active in passing legislation shoring up our ability to take appropriate action at our border.
Unbelievable. We officially have no border that we can control. Come one, come all - request asylum, get your court date and don’t show up for court. You can then work - or not - crowd our schools, collect government subsidies, including medical, etc.
