Donald Trump has recently announced through a memo his will to change policies on immigration. This new policy guidance is considered as being the answer of seekers asylum question in the country and has been thought in three parts.
First of all, the President of the United States would like to prevent asylum seekers coming in the USA thanks to the right of work but having their asylum right or documents expired. Nowadays, when the immigrant see his asylum demand expired or himself expelled from the country having a work permit, he could stay. With this new guidance, he has to leave the country and this, even if the permit is still available.
Even if he did not specify, the idea is to turn the asylum demand for a pay fee. The problem is, in order to be considered as being in an asylum demand situation, people have to leave their country due to political instability, war, and fear his own country. Many of the people coming because of these reasons, have no money and only their families. For now, we don’t know if it would turn into a pay fee.
Moreover, is previewed shorten the delay of delivery of the asylum claim. The Administration would only have 180 days to grant an asylum claim to the immigrants who wait for it. After having get an answer from the immigration service, immigrants have to pay it for getting it. We can take it as being means to do a selection of people coming in the US territory.
Another point; when immigrants come in the US territory, they often present themselves as being a part of the same family, sharing the same blood. According to reports done by the immigration service, there are thousands of immigrants pretending being family whereas they have not any blood link with each other. How does it happen? First of all, there are adults who find children alone and pretend being here with them. Then, they request the asylum demand.
They are a lot asylum seekers using this strategy to get their documents. To avoid this. Donald Trump has the idea to make some DNA tests over those immigrants coming illegally and without any documents. How would this test take place? It will need to be done over immigrants by taking some saliva sample, and then those samples will be analysed to verify, if yes or not they’re from the same family.
All of this, has been issued in a memo to the Acting Secretary of Homeland Security to change the asylum admission process. We wonder now, if this guidance will be voted and applied or, does it just represent the will of the President Trump to have more control over immigration ?
