Guest: Jodi Goodwin, Immigration Attorney, Harlingen, Texas While Congress and the President wrangle over funding for a wall, the Trump Administration is moving ahead with changes in how it treats people seeking asylum at the border. As of a week ago, asylum seekers arriving at the US port of entry in Tijuana are required to stay in Mexico while they wait for a US immigration court to decide if they’ll be granted asylum. The plan is to start doing the same thing at other ports of entry along the border.
