After the Supreme Court allowed a revised version of the controversial travel ban to take effect, a refugee ban is in place for the next 120 days. For migrants from South America, it is becoming more and more difficult to seek for asylum in the US.
When Donald Trump issued his latest edict restricting immigration, this time for possible asylum-seekers associated with the so-called migrant caravan, the political response in Washington followed a familiar pattern.
The Trump administration has signed an order that would effectively ban migrants who illegally cross the US-Mexico border from qualifying for asylum. The move comes as thousands of migrants are making their way north.
Germany's Interior Ministry has proposed new measures to monitor and deport failed asylum-seekers. Interior Minister Horst Seehofer has said he is also looking at ways to repatriate known criminals to Syria.
Thousands of people in Germany have vouched for refugees in recent years and are now being asked to pay high sums. Were their good intentions misguided?
