The Trump administration has taken extra steps to stop the inflow of Central American immigrants into the US through the southern border. A new rule passed by the White House is designed to prevent migrants who cross the border illegally from getting a chance to apply for asylum.
Democrat’s slim hopes of regaining majority control in the US Senate went with the wind on election day as Republicans held on. The GOP also trounced at least three Senate seats previously held by Democrats.
President Trump said that he plans to sign a new executive order next week that will restrict asylum rules. He wants leverage on a migrant caravan from Central America heading to the US border to score some points in the upcoming midterms.
