Deprivation of illegal immigrants the right to apply for asylum is temporary and applies to those aliens who illegally cross the southern US border with Mexico, according to the proclamation of the President of the United States Donald trump.

«I take action to terminate for a limited period of entry of some foreigners, to solve the problem of large numbers of foreigners coming through Mexico with the purpose of illegal entry into our country without proper documents,» — said in the proclamation.

While leaving the opportunity to apply for refugee status at the border, if a migrant comes to the border to the US authorities and ask for asylum properly and will not attempt to enter the United States illegally.

The document was signed «in anticipation of a large group of foreigners arriving in the coming weeks,» reads the proclamation.

Trump explains that for migrants, as a rule, there is no legitimate reason to seek asylum.

«The arrival of large numbers of foreigners will further overload our system of immigration and asylum and will lead to release (from detention — ed.) thousand foreigners in the United States. Constant threatening mass migration of aliens… created the crisis and undermines the inviolability of our borders,» trump said.

The U.S. Department of defense has previously stated its intention to place up to 7 thousand troops on the border. President trump said that he would send to the border to 15 thousand troops. In addition, the border is 2.1 thousand soldiers of the National guard of the United States.

Such measures are accepted in connection with the approach of the caravan of migrants to several thousand people from Central American countries, which now moves to the U.S. through Mexico. Two more of the caravan of migrants moving to the US from El Salvador.

The proclamation of the trump, like other of his edicts on the subject of immigration will almost certainly be challenged in court by its opponents.
