Trump is restricting access to asylum-seekers. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, breaks it down.

"The Trump administration is taking steps to stem the flow of Central American migrants crossing the U.S. border from Mexico.

The administration issued a new rule Thursday designed to prohibit migrants who cross the border outside of designated entry points from seeking asylum in the United States.

The measure is almost certain to face legal challenges. Advocates say federal law allows anyone on U.S. soil to petition for asylum, even if that person crossed the border illegally.

The administration wants to get around that provision by using the president's broad authority to exclude any immigrant — or class of immigrants — deemed 'detrimental to the interests of the United States.' That's the same authority the president used when he issued his travel ban on a variety of mostly Muslim countries. That ban was initially blocked by the courts but after several revisions was ultimately upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court."
