DHS considering asylum for migrants whose cases were terminated under Trump

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will be reconsidering the cases of migrants who were previously rejected for asylum in the United States under the Trump administration.

In a statement, DHS said this move was “part of our continued effort to restore safe, orderly, and humane processing at the Southwest Border.”

“DHS will expand the pool of MPP-enrolled individuals who are eligible for processing into the United States,” the department added. “DHS will continue to process for entry into the United States MPP enrollees with pending proceedings.”

Biden had paused the program on his first day in office.

The New York Times notes that this new development could potentially affect up to over 34,000 migrants seeking asylum in the U.S.

However, ACLU lawyer Judy Rabinovitz told the Times that the process will likely be long, as asylum seekers would not be informed of what they need to submit and there is no guarantee that a judge will grant a motion to reopen their case or grant them asylum.

In May, the Biden administration announced that it would seek to fast-track the asylum cases of the families who had been allowed to stay in the U.S.
