‘No Asylum Here’: Some Say U.S. Border Agents Rejected Them – The New York Times #TraitorTrump, #LoserTrump encourages law breaking!

Under United States and international law, everyone who asks for asylum is supposed to be allowed into the country to plead their case. But instead, they said, a Customs and Border Protection agent shooed them away.“There is no asylum here,” Francisca, 32, recalled the agent telling them. “We are not granting asylum.”Customs agents have increasingly turned away asylum seekers without so much as an interview, according to migrants and their lawyers, in a trend first noted several months ago and that appeared to accelerate after President Trump’s inauguration. That has left an untold number of migrants trapped in Mexico, where they have sometimes fallen prey to kidnappers seeking ransom or been driven into the hands of drug cartels and smugglers. Some have tried to enter the United States illegally and dangerously, through the desert or across the Rio Grande, a risky journey.
