For the past several months, individuals who have been seeking asylum in the United States have been turned away because of the new regulations that the Trump administration has set. According to an article published by Immigration Impact, “Asylum seekers got a major win in a lawsuit challenging the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) illegal policy of turning back asylum seekers at ports of entry”. We can say finally , DHS has decided to allow asylees to seek for help again in the U.S. Trump initially used the pandemic as an excuse to close down the borders there no individual was allowed to seek asylum.
It became a major problem because the people seeking for asylum were not allowed to tell their story or to explain the reasoning behind them trying to come the United States. They were all being turned away and would disregard their case. It is safe to say that the administration has changed its decision and the United States will continue to be a country where asylum seekers are welcomed.
