Biden legt asielbeperkingen op bij grens VS-Mexico

June 5, 2024 - President Joe Biden has issued a broad asylum ban on migrants caught illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, a major enforcement move ahead of November elections.

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.
