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
