White House 'pleased' about Supreme Court decision on asylum rule

ㅤ"The order is a victory for Trump, who has vowed to take action to stem the tide of immigrants at the southern border, most of whom are coming from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.
ㅤThe new asylum rules are expected to severely cut down on the number of immigrants from Central America who can request asylum in the United States, essentially preventing many of those coming from that region to do so.
ㅤThey would make people seeking asylum who pass through another country before the United States ineligible unless they first seek asylum in the country through which they are traveling."
