Trump Administration Tells Asylum Seekers to Get Used to “Homelessness” With New Policy

“The government’s plan is to drive people into desperation so that they choose not to come here in the first place, or abandon their claims and go home.”

President Donald Trump speaks after announcing an agreement with Guatemala regarding people seeking asylum in the Oval Office of the White House on July 26, 2019, in Washington, DC.

  • But that won’t be the case anymore after the Trump Administration issued a sweeping policy Friday that will deny work authorization for most asylum-seekers in the U.S. The policy is expected to force those deemed ineligible to either rely on support from charities and assistance from state and local governments, or risk working without a permit, making them vulnerable to abuse and potentially disqualifying them from asylum if caught.

  • 🚨The same day that Trump is issuing sweeping new immigration bans, his administration finalized a rule banning work permits for most asylum seekers.

  • Others might feel like they just can’t pursue their asylum cases and will be forced back to the places they fled.” Aaron Reichlin-Melnick, Policy Counsel at the American Immigration Council, told NowThis the Trump administration’s new rule will essentially amount to “punishing people for seeking protection.” “Many asylum seekers will have to choose between following the law and being driven into hunger or homelessness, or breaking the law to put food on the table by taking a job without a work permit,” he said.
