Joe Biden’s administration is preparing a rule to quickly reject ineligible immigrants for asylum

Joe Biden’s administration is preparing a rule to quickly reject ineligible immigrants for asylum

(CNN) — The Biden administration is expected to propose a rule this Thursday that would take stronger action against immigrants who do not meet the requirements to seek asylum, according to two sources familiar with the matter. The change is not expected to be drastic, but rather a tightening of the current immigration system.

The move comes as the White House seeks to toughen its stance on the U.S.-Mexico border and shift the rhetoric of Republicans who have continued to criticize President Joe Biden on immigration issues ahead of the November election.

The proposed rule would allow immigration officials to quickly reject some immigrants from applying for asylum earlier in the process if they are determined to be ineligible. The regulation, which still has to go through a public comment period, is not expected to cast a wide net of people barred from seeking asylum, according to one source.

The expert assures that the influx of immigrants is beneficial to America.

Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy acknowledged Wednesday that the administration is seeking changes to the asylum system, but noted that without legislation, making sweeping changes to the asylum system would be difficult.

Murphy told reporters that he was engaged with the administration on the policies under review, but noted that Republicans wanted Biden to challenge them in court as large-scale changes.

And while Senate Democrats will continue to push for a failed bipartisan immigration bill to gain GOP support, Murphy said, it’s unclear whether the measure will get another vote.
