Trump suspends entry for migrants who will 'financially burden the United States healthcare system'

ㅤ"Migrants will be considered people who will burden the system if they are not covered by approved health insurance within 30 days of entering the country unless they have enough money to ‘pay for reasonably foreseeable medical costs.’
ㅤIt does not affect people already holding a valid immigrant visa and does not affect migrants entering the U.S. through other ways including lawful permanent residents. The change also includes exceptions for people seeking certain types of visas including visas for children of U.S. citizens.’"

Trigger Reset

The Mexican border was closed Sunday at the San Ysidro Port of Entry after a group of migrants in Tijuana stormed the area, prompting the U.S. Border Patrol to fire what appeared to be tear gas at the group.

The incident marks a serious escalation in the tensions that have roiled Tijuana in recent weeks as thousands of migrants from Central America have amassed there with hopes for entering the United States.

President Trump has vowed to seal off the Mexican border in recent days and pushed to keep any migrants in Mexico as they await the immigration process.

As Mexican authorities tried to move the migrants away from the border, gridlock was occurring in what is one of the world’s busiest international crossings.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection closed northbound and southbound access, as well as pedestrian access, to the port of entry around 11:30 a.m. Sunday.

Mexico agrees to Trump policy forcing migrants to wait in Mexico as asylum requests processed: report

ㅤ"Mexican officials and senior members of President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s transition team told The Washington Post that the incoming administration accepted the plan, called ‘Remain in Mexico,’ in a sharp change to long-standing asylum rules that allowed migrants to file asylum claims after entering the U.S. either legally or illegally.
ㅤ’For now, we have agreed to this policy of Remain in Mexico,’ Olga Sánchez Cordero, Mexico’s incoming interior minister and the top domestic policy official for the President-elect, told The Post, calling it a ‘short-term solution.’
ㅤ’The medium- and long-term solution is that people don’t migrate,’ Sánchez Cordero added. ‘Mexico has open arms and everything, but imagine, one caravan after another after another, that would also be a problem for us.’"

DHS to cancel Obama-era foreign investor immigration program


ㅤ"The Trump administration moved Friday to officially revoke an Obama-era program designed to entice foreign entrepreneurs to move to the U.S. to invest their cash in businesses here, saying the previous administration overstepped its powers.
ㅤThe revocation, if it becomes final, would be yet another blow to President Obama’s attempts to rewrite the immigration system by executive fiat — a policy that also included the DACA deportation amnesty for illegal immigrant ‘Dreamers,’ a broader prohibition on deportations of most illegal immigrants, and new programs to allow more people to enter legally.
ㅤThe International Entrepreneur program fell into that latter category, with Mr. Obama intending it to be another way for foreign businessmen to skip the usual immigration process and gain a foothold in the U.S."ㅤ

Trump: No immigration deal unless 'real wall,' good security


ㅤ"Moderate House Republicans are pushing a deal that could lead to citizenship for young ‘Dreamer’ immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally.

Extreme vetting: State Dept. to demand tourists’ social media history


ㅤ”The State Department will publish new rules this week that would require most visitors and immigrants to the U.S. to turn over their recent social media histories, carrying out one of President Trump’s key security enhancements from his extreme vetting executive order.
ㅤTravelers would also be asked to list previous phone numbers, email addresses and international travel during the previous five years, and to detail any immigration problems they’ve had, whether with the U.S. or elsewhere. They’ll also be asked about potential family connections to terrorism.
ㅤAnd in a striking human rights move, would-be immigrants from countries where female genital mutilation is prevalent would be directed to a website ensuring they’re aware the practice — common in some African countries — is illegal in the U.S.”

Senate defeats first of four immigration bills


ㅤ”Senators on Thursday defeated a compromise immigration bill that tried to pair legal protection for Dreamers and about $3 billion in border security funding, far short of what President Trump was demanding.
ㅤThe bill was the first of four immigration proposals the Senate was expected to vote on Thursday, all of which were at risk of failing.
ㅤThe first proposal was offered by Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Chris Coons, D-Del., and was seen by Republicans as the weakest of the four offerings up today. Most Republicans and President Trump are looking for $25 billion in border wall funding, plus other measures to tamp down on immigration levels.”
