Trump did not differentiate between people who entered the United States to seek asylum and illegal immigrants.

You do not "enter" to seek asylum. You apply for asylum in one of our many consulates in your home country . . .

The asylum bs needs to end completely.

It went from illegal immigrant to undocumented immigrant to refugee and soon they’ll just call them “citizens”. These are foreigners committing crimes. Some misdemeanors many felonies.

Have you heard leftists talk? We're one of the most hateful, racist, xenophobic, islamophobic, misogynistic countries in the world! Clearly we're in no shape to take in asylum seekers until conditions drastically improve!

That's not true. You apply for immigration visas in consulates, asylum is applied for at borders cos the whole claim is that you have been forced to flee in fear for your safety. Kinda hard to claim you're desperately fleeing life threatening danger when you're happy to turn up to a consulate and wait it out while your application is processed.

And since there are no land connected territories that have citizens eligible for asylum, we can just automatically deny everyone at the Mexican border

You can also apply when you cross the border at a legal entry point.

This has been part of the situation
