A Good Decision

By Patrick Van Roy On September 12th, 2019

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court is allowing nationwide enforcement of a new Trump administration rule that prevents most Central American migrants from seeking asylum in the United States.

The justices’ order late Wednesday temporarily undoes a lower court ruling that had blocked the new asylum policy in some states along the southern border. The policy is meant to deny asylum to anyone who passes through another country on the way to the U.S. without seeking protection there.

Most people crossing the southern border are Central Americans fleeing violence and poverty. They are largely ineligible under the new rule, as are asylum seekers from Africa, Asia and South America who arrive regularly at the southern border.

Regretfully violence and poverty are NOT legitimate reasons to seek Asylum.  Violence and poverty are conditions in a lot of countries. Asylum is for the Persecuted. An example being a Catholic in a Muslim Country where they are killing Christians just because they are Christians.
