“Illegal aliens will no longer get a free pass into our country by lodging meritless claims in seeking asylum. Instead, migrants seeking asylum will have to present themselves lawfully at a port of entry” – President Donald J. Trump

PROTECTING OUR NATIONAL SOVEREIGNTY: President Donald J. Trump will take action to ensure asylum is not a free pass to cross our borders illegally without consequence.

    •    President Trump will use the authority granted to him by the Immigration and Nationality Act to manage and protect the integrity of our immigration system and our national sovereignty.  
    •    Section 212(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act states plainly: “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”
    •    Section 215(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act similarly states: “Unless otherwise ordered by the President, it shall be unlawful for any alien to depart from or enter or attempt to depart from or enter the United States except under such reasonable rules, regulations, and orders, and subject to such limitations and exceptions as the President may prescribe.”
    •    Just this June, the Supreme Court upheld the President’s broad statutory authority to implement entry restrictions.
    •    President Trump will sign a proclamation declaring that migrants seeking asylum along the southern border must present themselves lawfully at a port of entry.  
    •    Those who arrive at a port of entry will remain eligible for asylum.
    •    Also, additional resources are being deployed to support our ports of entry.
UPHOLDING THE RULE OF LAW: The Trump Administration is rightfully and fully restoring the rule of law on our southern border.   
    •    Today, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) are jointly issuing a new rule to ensure aliens who are subject to the kind of proclamation that the President issues are not eligible for asylum.
    •    The new joint rule, when paired with the Presidential proclamation, means that any alien who illegally enters our country will be ineligible for asylum.  

    •    These bold actions will ensure that those seeking asylum respect our laws and our borders.
RESPONDING TO THE BORDER CRISIS: Our Nation is experiencing an unprecedented crisis on our southern border, driven in part by fraud and abuse that has overwhelmed our asylum system.  
    •    Our overwhelmed asylum system is contributing to this growing crisis by encouraging aliens with meritless claims to illegally cross our border, claim “credible fear,” and then be released.
    •    Aliens are often coached to repeat the “magic words” to meet the initial low bar for credible fear.
    •    Prior to 2013, around 1 in every 100 arriving aliens claimed credible fear and sought asylum, but today that number has spiked to 1 in 10.  
    •    These claims have jumped by around 1,700 percent in the last nine years.
    •    There has been an overwhelming surge in aliens from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador (the Northern Triangle) arriving at our border to claim credible fear.   
    •    Most migrants from the Northern Triangle do not have valid asylum claims, but they are released into the country because our asylum system has become overwhelmed.       
    •    Nearly two-thirds of aliens who claim credible fear are from the Northern Triangle.
    •    Asylum seekers know they will be released into the country and receive work permits while their often meritless claims go through our backlogged immigration courts.
    •    Last year, nearly half of the completed cases that involved aliens who claimed credible fear resulted in the alien failing to show up at a hearing or even to file an application for asylum.

SUBJECT:     Additional Measures to Enhance Border Security
             and Restore Integrity to Our Immigration System

            By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, and to ensure the safety and territorial integrity of the United States as well as to ensure that the Nation's immigration laws are faithfully executed, it is hereby ordered as follows:

    Section 1.  Purpose.  As noted in Proclamations 9822 and 9842 of November 9, 2018, and February 7, 2019, respectively, our immigration and asylum system is in crisis as a consequence of the mass migration of aliens across our southern border.  In Proclamation 9844 of February 15, 2019, I declared a national emergency to address the security and humanitarian crisis at that border.  That emergency continues to grow increasingly severe.  In March, more than 100,000 inadmissible aliens were encountered seeking entry into the United States.  Many aliens travel in large caravans or other large organized groups, and many travel with children.  The extensive resources required to process and care for these individuals pulls U.S. Customs and Border Protection personnel away from securing our Nation's borders.  Additionally, illicit organizations benefit financially by smuggling illegal aliens into the United States and encouraging abuse of our asylum procedures.  This strategic exploitation of our Nation's humanitarian programs undermines our Nation's security and sovereignty.  The purpose of this memorandum is to strengthen asylum procedures to safeguard our system against rampant abuse of our asylum process.

    Sec. 2.  Policy.  It is the policy of the executive branch to manage our humanitarian immigration programs in a safe, orderly manner that provides access to relief or protection from removal from the United States for aliens who qualify, and that promptly denies benefits to and facilitates the removal of those who do not.


    Sec. 3.  Further Steps to Enhance the Integrity and Efficiency of the Existing Asylum System.  Within 90 days of the date of this memorandum, the Attorney General and the Secretary of Homeland Security, as applicable, shall take all appropriate actions to:

    (a)  propose regulations to ensure that aliens who receive positive fear determinations pursuant to section 235(b)(1) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) (8 U.S.C. 1225(b)(1)) or section 2242 of the Foreign Affairs Reform and Restructuring Act of 1998 (8 U.S.C. 1231 note) are placed in proceedings conducted under 8 CFR 208.2(c)(1) and 1208.2(c)(1) or, if not eligible for asylum, are placed in proceedings conducted under 8 CFR 208.2(c)(2) and 1208.2(c)(2);

    (b)  propose regulations to ensure that, absent exceptional circumstances, all asylum applications adjudicated in immigration court proceedings receive final administrative adjudication, not including administrative appeal, within 180 days of filing, in accordance with section 208(d)(5)(A)(iii) of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1158(d)(5)(A)(iii));

    (c)  propose regulations setting a fee for an asylum application not to exceed the costs of adjudicating the application, as authorized by section 208(d)(3) of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1158(d)(3)) and other applicable statutes, and setting a fee for an initial application for employment authorization for the period an asylum claim is pending; and

    (d)  propose regulations under section 208(d)(2) of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1158(d)(2)) and other applicable statutes to bar aliens who have entered or attempted to enter the United States unlawfully from receiving employment authorization before any applicable application for relief or protection from removal has been granted, and to ensure immediate revocation of employment authorization for aliens who are denied asylum or become subject to a final order of removal.

    Sec. 4.  Allocation of Immigration Officers.  The Secretary of Homeland Security shall reprioritize the assignment of immigration officers and any other employees of the Department as the Secretary deems necessary and appropriate to improve the integrity of adjudications of credible and reasonable fear claims, to strengthen the enforcement of the immigration laws, and to ensure compliance with the law by those aliens who have final orders of removal.

    Sec. 5.  General Provisions.  (a)  Nothing in this memorandum shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

        (i)   the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

        (ii)  the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

    (b)  This memorandum shall be implemented in a manner consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

    (c)  This memorandum is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

“The biggest loophole drawing illegal aliens to our borders is the use of fraudulent or meritless asylum claims to gain entry into our great country.”  – President Donald J. Trump

PROTECTING OUR ASYLUM SYSTEM: President Donald J. Trump is protecting the integrity of our asylum system and responding to the humanitarian and security crisis at our border.

  • President Trump has signed a Presidential Memorandum to ensure legitimate asylum-seekers can access asylum while more efficiently processing and removing illegal migrants who are not eligible and who do not qualify.
  • The President is directing his Administration to propose regulations to:
    • Streamline the court proceedings for aliens who pass initial fear determinations.
    • Adjudicate all asylum applications in immigration courts within 180 days of filing.
    • Require fees for asylum applications and work permit applications.
    • Bar aliens who have entered or attempted to enter the country illegally from receiving provisional work permits prior to being approved for relief.
    • Immediately revoke the work authorization of aliens who receive final removal orders.
  • The President is directing the Secretary of Homeland Security to reprioritize the assignment of immigration officers to improve the integrity of credible fear adjudications, strengthen law enforcement, and enforce removal orders from immigration judges.

THE ASYLUM LOOPHOLE: Migrants are flooding to our border to use asylum to gain entry into our country and remain here indefinitely.

  • Our immigration system has reached a breaking point as we continue to see an overwhelming surge of migrants, with more than 100,000 arriving at our border in March alone.
  • As a result of loopholes in United States immigration law, migrants claiming fear are often released into communities across the United States, where they often remain indefinitely.
  • In order to remain in the country, they often fail to show up to court hearings, fail to file an asylum application, or fail to comply with removal orders once their claims have been denied.

REDUCING ASYLUM FRAUD: Illegal migrants with meritless claims have used our asylum system to enter our country illegally and remain here indefinitely.

  • On average, out of every 100 aliens subject to expedited removal who claim a fear of persecution, only about 12 will ultimately be granted asylum.
  • Around half of all aliens who make a credible fear claim and are subsequently placed in removal proceedings do not actually apply for asylum.
  • The number of aliens who do not show up to court and are ordered removed in absentia has soared, with 17,200 removal orders issued in absentia in the first quarter of fiscal year (FY) 2019.
    • If this pace continues, in absentia removal orders would more than triple the 2013 total.
    • For cases originating in a credible fear claim, in absentia removal orders are on pace to increase to 17,636 in FY 2019, around 20 times more than the total in FY 2010.
    • From FY 2014 to FY 2018, roughly half of removal orders issued for Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) were issued in absentia.
    • Since September 2018, 1 out of every 6 family unit cases filed on special expedited dockets at 10 immigration courts has ended with an in absentia removal order.

“There is a humanitarian and security crisis on our southern border that requires urgent action.” – President Donald J. Trump

HUMANITARIAN RESPONSE: President Donald J. Trump is asking Congress for an additional $4.5 billion for humanitarian response and border operations.

  • The Trump Administration is seeking a supplemental appropriation of $4.5 billion to address the immediate humanitarian crisis on the southern border.
  • $3.3 billion of this request will fund humanitarian assistance, including funds to increase shelter capacity, to feed and care for migrants in custody, and for transportation.
    • More than $2.8 billion will go to increase Health and Human Services (HHS) shelter capacity for Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) to approximately 23,600 beds.
    • Department of Homeland Security will receive $273 million to stand up, operate, and secure processing centers at the southern border, increasing its capacity by 3,500 beds.
  • $1.1 billion will go to border operations, including personnel expenses, additional detention beds, and operations combating human smuggling and trafficking.
  • $178 million will be used to fund mission support, including $10 million to improve migrant processing by upgrading information technology systems.

URGENT CRISIS AT THE BORDER: We are experiencing an overwhelming surge of migrants flooding to our border, many of whom are minors and families who require extensive care.

  • Apprehensions could reach one million by the end of the year, which would be more than double the number of apprehensions last year.  
  • Border Patrol has apprehended more than 455,000 migrants already this fiscal year (FY), which is approximately 245,000 more apprehensions than during the same period in FY 2018.
  • The demographics of migrants arriving at our border have changed dramatically, from single adults to family units and UAC.
    • Migrant families have made up 53 percent of apprehensions so far this FY, up from 25 percent in FY 2017.
    • The number of UAC referred to HHS has increased by almost 50 percent over last year.
    • This shift in demographics has stressed a system mainly designed for single adults.
  • There has been a significant increase in large groups arriving at our border, mainly comprised of migrants from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras claiming asylum.

CONGRESS MUST ACT: The surge of migrants arriving at our southern border has strained existing resources to a breaking point.

  • The Federal Government is struggling to support and care for the overwhelming surge of migrants arriving at our border, especially the vast numbers of UAC and families.
  • HHS is at risk of exhausting all of its UAC resources in June. Without additional funds, it will be unable to handle the growth in the UAC population and will have to scale back services.
  • Currently, DHS projects that it will exhaust its resources well before the end of the FY.
  • Congress must appropriate these funds expeditiously so the agencies and front-line professionals have the resources they need to care for migrants.
  • While immediate action is needed to address this crisis, Congress must also work to close immigration loopholes that incentivize migrants to flood to our border.
    • Otherwise, taxpayers will continue to pay for managing this surge of migrants.




Human Smuggling and Associated Revenues What Do or Can We Know About Routes from Central America to the United States?
This report presents initial findings from a scoping study titled “Economic Value of Human Smuggling to Transnational Criminal Organizations.” A primary goal of this study, which was completed in less than two months, was to develop a preliminary estimate of transnational criminal organizations’ (TCOs’) revenues from smuggling migrants from the Northern Triangle region of Central America—consisting of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador—to the United States. In addition, we sought to establish what is known or knowable about the characteristics, including the structure, operations, and financing, of TCOs that engage in human smuggling along those routes.
