We need to tighten up loopholes in our asylum laws

Ken Cuccinelli, The Hill

This proposed rule does not change the eligibility criteria for asylum, and any illegal alien denied work authorization while their applications are pending still gains employment authorization if and when they are actually granted asylum. Ultimately, closing asylum loopholes and protecting the integrity of our Nation’s immigration system will benefit both the United States and those who qualify for humanitarian protection. An asylum system bogged down by those who will not likely qualify for asylum jeopardizes the fate of legitimate asylum seekers. USCIS is focused on strengthening America’s immigration system, stemming the crisis at the southern border, and protecting those who qualify for asylum under the law.
