Trump signed the one piece of paper that stopped the migrant caravan dead in its tracks
The migrants in the caravan thought they could invade the United States.
They thought wrong.
On Friday, Donald Trump signed the one piece of paper that stopped the caravan dead in its tracks.
Trump issued a Presidential proclamation banning migrants caught crossing the border illegally from applying for asylum.
They can still apply at a port of entry.
But the days of applying for asylum at the border and “catch and release” are over.
President Donald Trump has issued his formal proclamation barring economic migrants who try to sneak across the U.S. border from being allowed to apply for full asylum.
The announcement is intended to help block the impending caravan of Honduran migrants, and it says:
“The entry of any alien into the United States across the international boundary between the United States and Mexico is hereby suspended and limited … this proclamation shall not apply to any alien who enters the United States at a port of entry and properly presents for inspection, or to any lawful permanent resident of the United States.
The proclamation policy is being paired with new rules which say that the growing number migrants caught crossing the border will be only allowed to file for a limited amnesty, dubbed a “withholding of removal.”
The media howled in outrage when Trump called the caravan an invasion.
But their outrage just masked the fact that what upset them was that Trump was telling the truth.
