Biden verhängt Asyl Restriktionen an der US-Mexiko Grenze

June 5, 2024 - Präsident Joe Biden hat ein breit angelegtes Asylverbot für Migranten verhängt, die an der US-Mexiko Grenze illegal einreisen wollen, ein wichtiger Entscheid vor den November Wahlen.

Migrants caught crossing illegally could be quickly deported or turned back to Mexico under the measure, which took effect just after midnight on Wednesday. There will be exceptions for unaccompanied children, people who face serious medical or safety threats and victims of trafficking, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security said.

Biden, a Democrat, has toughened his approach to border security as immigration has emerged as a top issue for Americans in the run-up to the Nov. 5 elections where he will face Republican Donald Trump, who made a hardline stance on immigration a centrepiece of his administration and vowed a wide-ranging crackdown if re-elected, Reuters said.
