White House implemented a 'zero tolerance' starts working

President Donald Trump's strict immigration policies are stemming the influx of Central American migrants as many are now choosing to seem refuge in Mexico rather than seek asylum in the US.

Since the Trump administration made border security a priority, the White House implemented a 'zero tolerance' on immigration enforcement, which persecuted anyone attempting to enter the U.S illegally.

“Trump has created a policy of being unwelcome,” Hiram Villarreal of Casa de Refugiados said.

“It motivates people to stay and not go north.”

According to The DailyCaller: The policy also led to family separation as children cannot be held in federal criminal detention facilities, though the administration has recently tried to reunite children with their parents.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions also clarified the conditions to qualify for asylum in a piece June 11.

“An alien may suffer threats and violence in a foreign country for any number of reasons relating to her social, economic, family, or other personal circumstances,” Sessions wrote.

“Yet the asylum statute does not provide redress for all misfortune.” (RELATED: The Trump Administration Is Cracking Down On Immigration Loopholes)

Mexico City is seen as a “sanctuary city” for migrants as a result of Trump’s policies, according to the Blade. Venezuelans are increasingly fleeing to Mexico due to the economic crisis.

Those seeking asylum in Mexico must formally make a request within 30 days of entering the country.

The Mexican Commission for Refugee Aid (COMAR) interviews asylum seekers and determines whether the individuals claims of persecution are valid. COMAR has 45 days to make the decision.

Those admitted receive access to public health care and social security benefits.

Spanish speakers can request to become citizens after three years, while non-Spanish speakers can become citizens after five years.

Having an asylum request approved in Mexico is difficult, however.

Mexico denied nearly 90 percent of asylum requests between fiscal years 2012 to 2017, according to Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University.
