A migrant from Honduras waits at the Mexico-United States border crossing in Tijuana, Mexico on September 12, 2019. – With a little help from the Supreme Court and Mexico, US President Donald Trump’s fitful crackdown on immigration is finally gaining traction. Trump has spent his entire presidency promising to stop illegal immigration, shut out asylum seekers and wall off the Mexican border.The latest boost came Wednesday when the Supreme Court said he could enact severe restrictions on asylum seekers. The ruling requires would-be refugees to ask for asylum in the first country they visit and only then — if they are rejected — can they attempt to apply in the United States.
