Trump Preps New Asylum Rules, Including Fee for Applicants

With even the New York Times admitting that our asylum process is at a breaking point, it was high time for the President to make this move.

As the crisis at the southern border continues to mutate, President Trump has been stonewalled by democrats in his efforts to bring calm to the chaos.

The President has long insisted that his plans to build a “big, beautiful” wall on the border between the US and Mexico would help to alleviate some of this strain, while also encouraging asylum seekers to participate in the legal, safe immigration process.  Those who reach the border and cross  illegally are not only entering the United States at a disadvantage due to their choice, but they also find themselves increasingly at risk from adverse weather, dangerous wildlife, and cutthroat smugglers who victimize women and children.

The democrats in Congress have been unflinching in their opposition to “the wall”, often driving their drivel into the metaphorical world in order to further vilify the Commander in Chief.

Given the stalemate, it comes as no surprise that the President would seek other avenues to ensure the safety and legality of our nation’s potential immigrants.

President Trump called Monday night for a sweeping overhaul to an asylum system he has long said is rife with fraud — including a new fee to process asylum applicants, and the capacity to rapidly adjudicate applicants’ claims while also barring them from working in the U.S. in the meantime.

In a presidential memorandum, Trump specifically told Attorney General William Barr and acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan that the move was necessary to address a “crisis” at the border. In an article published earlier this month, The New York Times acknowledged that the humanitarian crisis of illegal immigration has hit a “breaking point.”

Trump also hoped to speed up the process.

In his memorandum, Trump gave his deputies 90 days to propose regulations so that all asylum applications are adjudicated within 180 days, except for those representing exceptional circumstances.

Trump’s memo comes just days after the New York Times, usually no fan of Trump and his policies, admitted that the current asylum system was reaching a critical “breaking” point.

President Trump Criticizes Democrats After What He Called A ‘Crazy, Chaotic’ Debate

Published

on

Tuesday evening’s Democratic presidential debate was an absolute dumpster fire, a complete clown show of totally epic proportions, a fact that even many Democrats and Democratic voters recognize. The whole event might as well have been a political advertisement for President Trump’s reelection campaign because the only winner to come out of the evening was definitely the current commander-in-chief. President Trump weighed in on the whole fiasco, calling the debate “crazy, chaotic,” two descriptors that fit the evening perfectly. Here’s more from the Washington Examiner: Trump sounded off on Tuesday’s debate, hosted by CBS News, on Wednesday morning in a pair of tweets upon returning to Washington, D.C., after visiting India. “Crazy, chaotic Democrat Debate last night. Fake News said Biden did well, even though he said half of our population was shot to death. Would be OVER for most,” Trump said. “Mini Mike was weak and unsteady, but helped greatly by his many commercials (which are not supposed to be allowed during a debate).” “Pocahontas was mean, & undisciplined, mostly aiming at Crazy Bernie and Mini Mike. They don’t know how to handle her, but I know she is a ‘chocker,'” Trump added. “Steyer was a disaster who, along with Mini, are setting records in $’s per vote. Just give me an opponent!” https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1232657640515342336 Tuesday’s debate was the 10th of the 2020 Democratic primary and featured seven candidates: Sens. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Bernie Sanders of Vermont, and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts; former Mayors Michael Bloomberg of New York City and Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana; former Vice President Joe Biden; and billionaire Tom Steyer. After the debate was over, lots of folks had harsh words for the debate moderators, even more so than the actual candidates, for not keeping control of the situation and allowing it transform…

Schumer Calls Trump Budget Demand To Fight Coronavirus Inadequate, Requests $8.5B

Published

on

Senate Democrats don’t feel that President Trump’s $2.5 billion budget request to help fight against the spread of the coronavirus, instead seeking to pull in $8.5 billion. According to a top aide, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer “is preparing a detailed Senate request” to ask Congress for the money. Check out more from The Washington Examiner: “Expect Schumer’s request to be finalized this morning and sent to appropriators,” the aide said. Democrats on Tuesday dismissed the Trump administration’s $2.5 billion emergency funding request as far too low to prepare the nation to combat the virus in an adequate manner, given its spread in several countries. Democrats point out Congress appropriated $7 billion to battle the spread of the H1N1 virus 11 years ago. Congress is preparing to take up the supplemental spending measure soon, but the final number will have to be negotiated between Democrats and Republicans in both chambers. The House, which is currently run by Democrats, hasn’t yet proposed a spending number, but will take up the legislation first as usual. Republicans in the Senate actually agreed with their Democrat counterparts, stating the figure proposed by President Trump might be a bit too low. Regardless of where you stand on spending for this, the bottom line is that the coronavirus is pretty scary stuff and nations around the world need to be taking proper precautions to ensure the spread of this virus is contained until a vaccine and treatment can be created to prevent it from being a worldwide pandemic. The disease’s death toll has risen substantially since the outbreak began in Wuhan, China, and if we want to avoid seeing those kind of numbers here on American soil, it’s going to cost a pretty penny to put all the safety measures in place.
