Trump administration to start DNA tests for migrants at southern border

DHS chief says more funds needed to handle crush of migrants

"ICE [Homeland Security Investigations] is working with [Customs and Border Protection] to stop individuals, networks and organizations facilitating child smuggling and document fraud to illegally enter the U.S.", ICE tweeted Monday.

Many immigrant advocates are coming down on the new proposed regulations that will only make it harder to those seeking asylum.

. The groups also say, citing deposition testimony by an ICE official, that the agency claims the authority to search people's devices for information about other people, including sources of journalists and scholars as well as people's business partners, relatives, and other associates. Agencies have been strained, in part, by the shift in demographics - from single adult males to families and children from Central America seeking asylum.

Since the beginning of the budget year, they say they have uncovered more than 1000 cases and referred 45 cases for prosecution.

A recent story from the Daily Caller said the figures are even higher, with more than 3,000 fake families discovered trying to cross the border within the past six months.

McAleenan told lawmakers on the House Appropriations Homeland Security Subcommittee that some of the funding will help Customs and Border Protection set up temporary and semi-permanent migrant processing facilities at the southern border to ensure families and children receive timely and appropriate medical attention, food and temporary shelter.

The first step in the long US asylum process is an interview by a USCIS official specially trained in asylum and refugee law to determine whether a migrant has a "credible fear" of returning to their home country.

He wants to impose new work-permit restrictions and further strain the nation's already-overwhelmed immigration courts by demanding faster turnaround on cases.

A migrant mother and her children walk along a road with other Central American migrants during their journey toward the United States, in Tuzantan, Mexico, on April 16. There, they must prove to an asylum officer that they have a credible fear of returning home or face persecution. The union that represents border patrol agents had criticized Morgan for supporting Obama's plans to protect certain undocumented immigrants from deportation. ICE officials can not process claims fast enough to get new asylum seekers out of border patrol custody within the requisite 72 days, and border patrol facilities aren't equipped for long-term or high-volume situations.

This isn't the first time word of this plan has made news.

ICE officials say they have identified 29 families suspected of fraud since April 18.

Nadler gives Barr Monday deadline to produce full Mueller report
It also described attempts by Trump to obstruct Mueller's probe, but did not say whether Trump had committed a crime. Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec called Ms Pelosi's allegation "reckless, irresponsible and false".

There are now fewer than 500 immigration judges nationwide, with the 900,000 asylum cases waiting to be decided. That policy is being challenged by lawsuits.

This week, the President issued a policy memo outlining strategies to address the severe deficiencies plaguing our asylum policy, which illegal immigrants are increasingly abusing in order to skirt our normal immigration procedures.

The changes would reduce the number of migrants who are waiting for a decision on their asylum case, alleviating an immigration court system bogged down with some 900,000 pending cases, and more quickly deport foreign nationals who do not qualify.

Trump threatened to shut down the border last month to stop the surge of migrants, and later raised the specter of a tariff on vehicle imports from Mexico, but later backed off the threats.
