TFT - Why are Asylum Fixes Absent in Border Funding Battle?
President Trump and various administration officials have accurately diagnosed the crisis at the border and its impact on the security of our nation by pointing out the widespread exploitation of our asylum laws. Every day, people cross our borders and present claims that are clearly coached, knowing that in most cases they will be released pending a hearing that could be years in the future. Because of this, there are now nearly one million cases backlogged in the immigration court and massive backlogs at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) asylum offices.
