US to Test Expedited Asylum Screenings at Mexico Border

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is trying a new approach to screening Asylum seeming migrants at the southern border with Mexico! A small number of migrants will be screened by asylum officers while still in custody and they will also provide them with access to legal counsel to present their case. This new approach will start in about a week and it is part of the preparations for the end of a pandemic-related rule on May 11th, this rule suspended right to seek asylum for many migrants.
