Trump signs order blocking asylum for illegal entry

US President Donald Trump on Friday signed an order that effectively will suspend the granting of asylum to migrants who cross the US border with Mexico illegally.

The order, which goes into effect on Saturday, means that migrants will have to present themselves at US ports of entry to qualify for asylum. The order will be in effect for 90 days or until the United States reaches an agreement with Mexico allowing it to turn back asylum-seekers who had traveled through Mexico, whichever comes first.
