What is asylum?

The term "asylum" has been in the news a lot lately. A judge recently rebuked the president's policy that has forced an Ivory Coast citizen to remain detained for the last three years while he has sought asylum. Stories like these have caused many people to ask, "What exactly is asylum?"

Administration's approach to asylum seekers remains unclear

Some Texans are concerned about reports of the Trump administration's changing approach to immigration law, especially people who have some involvement with the system themselves. One such issue that is causing confusion for asylum-seekers as well as government officials in both the U.S. and Mexico is a plan to require people seeking protection to remain in Mexico until their applications are processed. The Mexican government said that it was seeking additional information about the U.S. announcement, noting that it would not deport asylum seekers, most of whom come from Central America.
