Since May 11, new rules have been in force for the entry of migrants into the United States at the borders. The change has taken place since the end of Title 42. This health regulation was established following the Covid crisis and prevented the entry of thousands of foreign asylum seekers.
Now, according to information from the El Nuevo Herald website, Title 8 has been applied again, which allows for the expulsion of anyone who wants to enter without seeking asylum.
Faced with this new regulation, pro-immigrant associations warn most people who arrive at the border without authorization are not eligible to stay on US soil.
As this rule, according to that source, is designed to further discourage irregular migration and help migrants use legal processes.
Who has the right to asylum
So the obligatory question is who will be able to access the asylum permit. On this point, the note cited indicates that the majority of migrants vulnerable to dangerous situations who arrive at the border with Mexico will be taken back to their countries of origin, even if they have legitimate requests for protection.
In this sense, according to the Circumvention of Lawful Pathways standard Those crossing a third country on their way to the US-Mexico border are not eligible for asylum.
While, To enter that country, it will be essential that they have these three requirements:
– Have permission to travel to the United States through a parole process approved by the United States Department of Homeland Security.
– Use the CBP One programming system, this is the name of the telephone application of the federal agency responsible for border surveillance that allows people without the corresponding documents to enter the United States to validate their data.
– Prove that there is an extreme and imminent threat to your life or safety, such as rape, kidnapping, torture or murder. Or that they have been victims of a serious form of trafficking.
– Prove that you have sought protection in another country on your way to the United States and have received a refusal as a final decision. Mexicans are the only ones exempt from this presumption of ineligibility for asylum because they do not have to transit through another country on their route.
