Proposed plan may keep those seeking asylum out of the country

Lately, it seems as if there are new plans in the works every day to address certain aspects of immigration. In particular, changes to policies involving asylum have many individuals in California and elsewhere immensely concerned. Any change to immigration policies can significantly impact people who are simply trying to find a safe haven.

It was recently reported that individuals who are trying to come to the United States from Central America may not be able to enter the country while they await asylum. Currently, immigrants hoping to obtain protections in the United States are able to stay in the country while officials review and process their cases. However, a proposed plan called "Remain in Mexico" is under consideration by the U.S. government.

This proposal would involve individuals having to stay in Mexico as their asylum cases are processed rather than being able to come to the United States. Immigrants would have to provide evidence that they have a reasonable fear of persecution in Mexico in order to come to America. It was mentioned that there are no immediate plans to put the proposed change into effect. In fact, the Mexican government typically does not allow immigrants to remain in the country while they are attempting to gain asylum elsewhere.

It can be substantially difficult for immigrants to obtain asylum, and when the rules are changing, it may cause even more hardships for them. Even if they are out of the country, it is important that they understand the laws associated with following this immigration path. Fortunately, interested individuals could contact California immigration attorneys who could help them on this journey.
