President Trump is preparing to make some dramatic changes to immigration policies. He has reportedly directed top White House officials to take a more aggressive stance on immigration. This comes as record-high numbers of immigrants are reaching the southern border, pushing Customs and Border Protection to its breaking point.
Some of the changes include a new way of analyzing asylum claims by comparing the person’s fears to the actual conditions of their home country.
Regulatory changes will also make it harder for “difficult or low-skilled” immigrants to enter the country, while making it easier for high-skilled immigrants who will likely be self sufficient.
Additionally, the government will also be allowed to hold migrant children longer than the current 20-day limit.
