A statement from the Trump administration said the new measures are in the "national interest".
An early draft of the proposal reviewed by The Washington Post asserted the president can use his authority under Section 212 (f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act to declare certain migrants ineligible for asylum for national security grounds.
The Trump administration announced Thursday that migrants who attempt to cross the U.S. -Mexico border illegally will not be eligible to claim asylum under a new rule meant to crack down on "meritless" claims. A USA asylum officer then conducts an interview to determine if the person has a "credible fear" of persecution, in which case the applicant is typically assigned a court date and released from custody.
This is expected to put a dent in those streaming into an already overburdened system, officials said, noting that there is a backlog of more than 700,000 cases in the immigration courts.

The latest crackdown on illegal immigration is expected to be challenged in the courts by civil liberties groups, who argue that anyone who reaches United States soil is entitled to make an asylum claim. "It is illegal to circumvent that by agency or presidential decree", he said. Criminalization of asylum seekers rather than compassion has created some of the most shameful policies I've ever witnessed in this country.
A caravan of thousands of migrants, mainly from Honduras, is now making its way through Mexico.
The ban drew multiple legal challenges and forced the administration to issue three different versions before a revised ban was upheld in June by the Supreme Court on a 5 to 4 vote. But many migrants are unaware of that guidance, and official border crossings have grown clogged. Before the midterm elections, Trump mulled ending birthright citizenship - the policy that ensures all children born on usa soil are automatically citizens - by executive order. Those issues were not addressed by the regulations. It said the automatic denial of asylum claims to illegal border-crossers would continue for 90 days or until there is an agreement which "permits the United States to remove aliens to Mexico". But many migrants are unaware of that guidance, and official border crossings have grown clogged. "Any person in the United States must have access to the asylum process". About 4,800 migrants are sheltered in a sports complex in Mexico City, some 600 miles (965 kilometers) from the US border. Several smaller groups were trailing hundreds of kilometres to the south; officials estimated about 7,000 in all were in the country in the caravans.
Similar caravans have gathered regularly over the years and have generally dwindled by the time they reach the US border.
