(AbsoluteNews.com) – President Donald Trump’s tough immigration policies are incredibly popular among Conservatives who want to keep America safe. A new rule is about to go into effect that will do just that.
In 2019, the DOJ and DHS proposed changing the asylum rules to prohibit people convicted of certain offenses from obtaining asylum in the US. The Trump Administration wants to make sure criminals aren’t able to freely enter America to commit crimes or hurt citizens. Immigrants with the following convictions on their records will no longer be welcome:
- Gang offenses
- Domestic violence
- Trafficking or being in possession of illegals drugs or paraphernalia
- Drunk driving
- Smuggling or harboring aliens
- Reentering the US after being deported
The Departments of Justice and Homeland Security Publish Final Rule to Restrict Certain Criminal Aliens’ Eligibility for Asylum
New Mandatory Bars Prevent Convicted Felons, Drunk Drivers, Gang Members, and Other Criminal Aliens from Receiving Asylumhttps://t.co/jK9DCiPZFO

In the US, people who commit crimes against moral turpitude (an offense that gravely violates accepted behavior in society) are grounds for deportation or denial of citizenship. Nearly, all of the offenses on the list above put lives in danger, so it makes sense the government wants to keep people out who have committed such acts. The new rule is set to take effect in November sometime.
You Deserve the Absolute Truth!
