The Trump Administration Cannot Keep its Promises (July 2018)

Although the Trump Administration wants asylum seekers to come legally through ports of entry, these families are still facing issues with separation from their children. Despite statements from the Department of Homeland Security saying the separation of families is a “myth,” reports from immigration courts discovered by the Texas Tribune show the myth is very real.   Immigration law experts believe one of the issues in United States immigration policy is that less protections are given to those who enter through ports of entry than by other means.
