Trump Mistakes Syrian Refugees for Illegal Immigrants


Donald Trump sends anti-refugee tweet, “13 Syrian refugees were caught trying to get into the U.S. through the Southern Border. How many made it? WE NEED THE WALL!”

These were not illegal immigrants trying to evade authorities, instead these were legal asylum seekers following legal asylum protocol.

To obtain asylum through the affirmative asylum process you must be physically present in the United States. You may apply for asylum status regardless of how you arrived in the United States or your current immigration status.
