Trump Announces Asylum Changes

President Trump is changing how the U.S. handles asylum cases. The government will no longer allow migrants who illegally sneak across the border to claim asylum in an effort to get a foothold here. Migrants who show up at official ports of entry and request asylum will still be allowed to make the claims, but they now simply can’t claim asylum anymore if they sneak across the border. Trump made the announcement in a speech Thursday at the White House.
