Five immigration rule changes you might have missed

To say 2018 has been a tough year for immigrants in the U.S. and immigration as a whole is an understatement. It was more a draconian year, when the xenophobes seemed to triumph, and hate ruled the roost.

And in that spirit, the Donald Trump administration pushed many policy changes on the immigration front that will affect the landscape and immigration for years to come. Here are five that occurred as we wrap up 2018.

New technique to process asylum seekers from Central America

The Department of Homeland Security, Dec. 20, 2018, announced that individuals entering the U.S. illegally or without proper documentation across the southern border and seeking to claim asylum in the U.S. will no longer be allowed to stay while their case is determined. Instead, according to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, they will now “be processed by DHS and given a ‘Notice to Appear’ for their immigration court hearing.”

Asylum seekers from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador will now have to wait outside the United States until their immigration proceedings are concluded.

Zero tolerance policy is still order of the day

Changes to Vietnamese accord could see many deported

Newer ways to deny green card and visa applications

Changes to fingerprint-based background check policy for immigrant household members

I trashed the article based on "...when the xenophobes seemed to triumph, and hate ruled the roost.

And in that spirit, the Donald Trump administration pushed many policy changes on the immigration front that will affect the landscape and immigration for years to come. "

Some get behind and I guess they got caught up in the trouble for being behind? It's a nice piece of homework. :)
