Three migrants are waiting near the border shortly after being returned to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico.
The legal submission is an unusual public exposing of a seated president from his staff, and she sinks a well-trained officer a corps that usually works under a strict secret in a public legal battle for one of Trump's most valuable immigration policies.
Under the Trump, the asylum department has become the subject of internal anger, often forced to approve most of the initial screening for asylum, and to send immigrants to an immigration court for a full hearing. Officials from the Trump administration claim that most cases are denied. Last week, US Department of Citizenship and Immigration Director Ken Cuccinelli resented some asylum workers by sending an email to employees who felt criticized for approving so many initial screenings. the position seemingly as part of his move to make it difficult with regard to immigration policy, and the legal submission of the alliance seems directly contrary to this approach.
Politics has been challenged in a federal court, as a lower court judge temporarily halts MLP in April, saying it is likely to violate federal law. The three-member panel in the ninth round allowed the program to resume in May, until the court judged the legality of the policy. in the United States pending a hearing in late immigration courts. The US government can not quickly handle migrant deeds or hold children for long periods, which means that some migrants may stay in the country for months or years while waiting for the cases to be investigated. The end of the program, government lawyers said, "would impose immediate and substantial damage to the government's ability to manage the crisis at our southern border."
The justice ministry refused to comment on Wednesday evening's submission. The Department of Homeland Security, which monitors the program, did not respond to a request for comment. The influx of immigrants from Central America to the southern border is overwhelmed by the US immigration system. It also led to a political struggle between Democrats from Congress and the White House over overcrowded and unhygienic conditions in border holding facilities amid Trump's endeavors for enhanced law enforcement. More than 144,000 immigrants were detained in May following the crossing of the southern border, the largest monthly sum for more than a decade, and the asylum applications filed.
Trump administration officials this week called on Congress to approve urgent funding for the humanitarian crisis at the border. The Senate responded Wednesday by adopting $ 4.6 billion emergency spending measures amid debates on treating migrants and the risks they face when trying to enter the United States.
In federal lawsuits, asylum officials say they are implementing the laws that Congress has envisioned on the basis of approaches and international treaties formed after World War II and holocaust-related atrocities. Federal laws depend on the principle of "non-refoulement", which means that people should not return to countries where they can be harmed or killed. In order to meet the asylum requirements, migrants must show that they are experiencing harm based on "race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion".
Asylum seekers say Mexico is too dangerous for Central American asylum seekers, especially women, gay, lesbian and transgender people, and local minority groups. They cited State Department reports showing that the violence and activity of the band were widespread and that crimes were rarely resolved. can easily follow them to Mexico. "And despite a commitment to protect the rights of asylum seekers, the Mexican government has proved incapable of providing such protection."
Asylum seekers argue that the US asylum system is not, as the administration claims, fundamentally violated, "And that they could handle more cases quickly without sending people back to Mexico. MPP is "totally unnecessary, as our immigration system has the basis and flexibility needed to deal with the flow of migrants across our southern border," said the filing. "The officers said they were worried that MSP would send asylum seekers back to a country, in which they are in danger, violation of u federal and international law.This immigration agents do not ask immigrants if they are afraid of persecution or torture in Mexico, and that they only send migrants to asylum seekers if the migrants express their fear of return

The latter receive an initial screening for asylum, often by telephone or video, but they have to prove they are more likely to face a persecution in Mexico, which is higher in immigration courts, where migrants are p being made available guarantees such as access to lawyers, read their rights and the right of
