Trump's administration argues that he has the executive power to curb immigration in the name of national security, a power he invoked right after taking office with a controversial ban on travelers from several mostly-Muslim countries - whose final version was upheld by the US Supreme Court on June 26 after a protracted legal battle.

"The vast majority of aliens who enter illegally today come from the Northern Triangle countries", the regulation's text reads.

It's unclear how many people en route to the U.S.in the current caravans will even make it to the border.

The new restrictions on asylum claims won't take effect until Trump issues a proclamation limiting or suspending entry into the US from Mexico, according to the rule. Immigrants would have to apply for asylum status at designated points of entry, and those already in the country illegally would not be able to apply.

"We're the only country in the world where a person comes in and has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United States for 85 years with all of those benefits", Trump told Axios. In both cases, the applicant has to demostrate a credible threat if they were to return home.

The new measures would deny asylum to those who breach any presidential restriction on entry.

That status does not give foreigners a path to a green card or citizenship, and instead functions as a kind of provisional suspension of the deportation process, revocable at any time.

He says he wants people to come to the US legally.

U.S. asylum seekers would be given a hearing no matter how they arrived in the country until Mr Trump signed Friday's proclamation. "It is illegal to circumvent that by agency or presidential decree", Omar Jadwat, director of the American Civil Liberties Rights Project, said.

The Trump administration announced in 2017 that it would be ending DACA, telling recipients to prepare for "departure from the United States", reports CNN.

Officials say the new policy is grounded in the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965.

The unanimous decision by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit increases the likelihood that the fate of almost 700,000 "dreamers" will be settled by the Supreme Court.

The new changes were likely to be met with legal challenges, too.
