The Trump administration to give Border Patrol agents authority to decide asylum claims on the spot according to the Washington Examiner.
“Theoretically, we could end up deporting them in two weeks, rather than two to five years,” according to the source.
This move is highly likely to be challenged in court.

President Donald Trump is reportedly preparing to give law enforcement officials the authority to conduct interviews with asylum seekers arriving on the U.S.-Mexico border.
Under the upcoming plan, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officers would train Border Patrol agents deployed on the southern border on how to perform “credible fear interviews,” according to sources who spoke with the Washington Examiner. A migrant illegally crossing the border would be subjected to an interview by an agent shortly after apprehension and would only be allowed to claim asylum if they pass the interview.
The changes would reduce the number of migrants who are waiting for a decision on their asylum case, alleviating an immigration court system bogged down with some 900,000 pending cases, and more quickly deport foreign nationals who do not qualify. More
Allowing the Border Patrol to immediately deport illegal aliens after being documented and interviewed could be a huge disincentive to people making the horrid trek to our southern border.

An excellent idea! This would cut fake asylum determinations (over 90%!) waiting times down from as much as 5 years to 2 weeks. Do it! https://t.co/IC7rHEvQ0T

This is the way it should have always been done. Instead of being processed and let go into the country then given a court date years away because they passed a ‘credible fear’ interview a.k.a. I told them that a gang will kill me.

Step in the right direction,but, if someone enters the US illegally, they shouldn’t be allowed to ask for asylum, should they? Only if they come in legally.
