A MSNBC guest blasted President Joe Biden Thursday over a new policy that will render certain migrants ineligible for asylum, calling it an “asylum ban.”

The Department of Homeland Security announced a rule stating that migrants who passed through “safe” countries while making their way to the US would be presumed ineligible for asylum. The Biden administration scrapped a program initiated by the Trump administration that was similar to the proposed rule when Biden took office.

“We know that when this kind of a ban is put in place it causes challenges for families, for individuals, and puts people at risk,” Marisa Limon Garza, the executive director of Las Americas Immigrant Advocacy Center told MSNBC host Jose Diaz-Balart. “And so that’s what I really meant by that, that human suffering that we’ll see as a result of this asylum ban.”

“We see it as a way that’s going to cut off some access for people, and that in essence is a ban. There are exceptions to the rule, certainly, but we have been working with folks in Ciudad Juárez as they try to navigate the CBP One app,” Garza told Diaz-Balart. “And that has — has proved difficult for people. And so it’s not necessarily a surefire solution to what we’re seeing on the ground, and instead, it may cause more challenges.”

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) encountered over 2.3 million migrants in fiscal year 2022, while another 600,000 migrants evaded CBP that fiscal year, Fox News reported. CBP reported encountering 230,000 migrants in October, the first month of fiscal year 2023, another 233,470 in November, the second month of fiscal year 2023 and more than 250,000 in December.

Garza claimed that countries migrants pass through while en route to the United States are not necessarily safe.

“They don’t really see options within the other countries that are along the way, and a lot of those asylum systems that have been developed are over — overrun with needs already,” Garza said. “And so it makes it a very precarious and challenging situation for people where they’re really taking their lives into their own hands with no other option than to try to make it to the United States to seek protection.”

Is Biden the ultimate embarrassment to our country?
