The White House announced that the US authorities will begin processing asylum applications for some categories of immigrants from February 19.
The White House said in a statement today, Tuesday, that “starting February 19, the United States will begin processing the requests of people who meet the necessary conditions.”
The White House indicated that the US authorities will work in coordination with the Mexican authorities and NGOs.
At the same time, the US authorities called on potential immigrants to refrain from any urgent steps or attempts to enter the US immediately.
The US authorities are planning to adopt an electronic system for submitting asylum claims, allowing applications to be submitted from anywhere in the world.
