Trump moves to restrict asylum claims at border:

The Trump administration said Thursday it’s moving ahead with a plan to clamp down on asylum claims, a controversial move designed to escalate President Trump‘s broader efforts to crack down on illegal immigration.
The Justice Department and Department of Homeland Security published a joint rule prohibiting people who cross the U.S. southern border from Mexico from claiming asylum.
The president is also is expected to sign an accompanying directive on Friday morning before leaving Washington for a trip to Paris.
Trump has long accused migrants from Central America of abusing the the U.S. asylum system. The move is expected to draw legal challenges and widespread opposition from Democrats and immigrant rights groups.
