New US Attorney General William Barr is implementing new rules to curb ‘catch-and-release’ by preventing the release of those seeking asylum by entering the US illegally and claiming ‘credible fear.’ Instead of releasing them, the Department of Homeland Security will have the authority to detain them indefinitely. The effect is expected to discourage new migrants because they will not be able to work and send money to their country of origin if they are imprisoned. The new policy does not apply to family units or unaccompanied children. More than 225,000 family units have been apprehended at the border this year, and a 500% surge in family unit immigrants has been recorded this year. The White House is resuming its ‘remain in Mexico’ policy that is being challenged in a California court.
