Asylum Ban

By Attorney Yifei He

Under President Trump’s Asylum Ban, anyone who entered the United States through Mexico on or after July 16, 2019 is ineligible for Asylum. To be eligible, they must first apply for Asylum in Mexico and received a denial. This means that the majority of Non-Mexicans, including those individuals from China smuggled through the Southern Border, are now ineligible for Asylum. Instead, they must now apply for Withholding of Removal under the Convention Against Torture. The differences between Asylum and Withholding of Removal are vast. Notably, Withholding of Removal does not lead to a Green Card. The President’s Asylum Ban is presently in full force and effect. See 8 C.F.R. § 208.13(c)(4) and 8 C.F.R. § 208.30(e)(5).
