ABSTRACT

Addressing Mass Migration Through the Southern Border of the United States: Proclamation 9822 by the President of the United States of America, November 9, 2018   [open pdf - 179KB]

Proclamation 9822 issued by the president on Nov 9, 2018, establishes that any asylum seekers attempting to enter the U.S. must enter at a legal port of entry to be processed accordingly. Aliens attempting entry through illegal ports will be ineligible for asylum claims: "The continuing and threatened mass migration of aliens with no basis for admission into the United States through our southern border has precipitated a crisis and undermines the integrity of our borders. I therefore must take immediate action to protect the national interest, and to maintain the effectiveness of the asylum system for legitimate asylum seekers who demonstrate that they have fled persecution and warrant the many special benefits associated with asylum."
