Potential changes are part of a massive reform undertaken by President Donald Trump in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Currently, asylum seekers in the US are interviewed by employees of a special unit of the Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), and all they need to do is voice fear to return to their home country to go through the first step in the asylum process.

According to officials, the Trump group of top advisers have been pushing for several months. recently fired head of national security department Kirsten Nielsen to make such changes to the asylum process. In particular, Trump's senior adviser Stephen Miller argued that customs and border control agents (CBPs) would be tougher to asylum seekers than USCIS representatives, and after the interview, fewer applicants would be allowed to proceed.

This strategy is part of an overall plan to reduce the number of people applying for asylum in the United States.

Due to the overcrowding of immigration courts, those who passed the initial interview live for months or even years in the United States while at liberty or in illegal immigration centers.
