us rejects asylum applications of refugees who entered illegally through mexico

Alejandro Mayorkas, the Secretary of Homeland Security for the United States, announced on Friday that beginning May 11, 2023, the United States will no longer accept asylum applications from migrants who illegally enter the country through the border with Mexico. This decision was made by the United States.

In recent years, a significant number of Afghan refugees have traveled along this path, entered the United States and Canada, and applied for asylum certificates in both of those countries.

According to the new rule, asylum claims must be submitted in the United States by refugees fleeing persecution in any country they visit en route to the United States. They will not be eligible for asylum in the United States, and if they enter the country, they will be dealt with appropriately.
