“The Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice <…> are introducing <…> a criterion for considering asylum requests to aliens who arrive or intend to enter the United States from the southern border and have not previously applied for asylum from persecution or torture in a third country, through the territory which they passed on their way to the United States, ”the document says. It clarifies that such foreigners - “with a limited number of exceptions” - will not be eligible for asylum in the United States if they have not previously applied to the authorities of a third country, “which is not their country of citizenship or permanent residence, but through which they passed on their way to the United States.

Ebrard noted that the Mexican authorities did not agree with the US decision to tighten the rules for granting asylum. “We have an absolutely opposite position. In Mexico, you can ask for political asylum, and it is very unlikely that Mexico will deny asylum to a person who asks for it because of political persecution, ”he added.
