Trump introduces sweeping changes to asylum in memo

President Trump directed officials to toughen rules for asylum seekers on Monday, including by introducing a fee for their applications. The rules also aim to bar those who entered the country illegally from working until their claims are approved. Trump signed a presidential memorandum that directed the DOJ and DHS to, within 90 days, introduce the measures.

Just like fake rape victims make it harder for real victims, unfounded asylum requests make it harder for legitimate ones to go through.

Would the fee go towards the increased judges trying to work faster or towards building more security along the border to help prevent people from coming in without paying the application fee?
