The new rule emerging from the Trump administration apply to the initial asylum screening, known as a “credible fear” interview, at which migrants must prove they have credible fears of returning to their home country.


It applies to migrants who are arriving to the US, not those who are already in the country.


Trump administration officials say the changes are meant to close the gap between the initial asylum screening that most people pass and the final decision on asylum that most people do not win.
