PHOENIX — For months, asylum seekers have been prohibited from filing their claims at U.S. border crossings under a much-criticized Trump administration policy. Now some are sprinting down vehicle lanes or renting cars to try to make it inside the U.S.
Officials say the migrants’ efforts are causing traffic delays at Arizona crossings because U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials had to barricade lanes used by cars legally entering the U.S. from Mexico.
Drivers persevered as much as five-hour waits over the Thanksgiving weekend, producing considerations through U.S. companies depending on Mexican consumers.
Customs and Border Coverage officers stated in a observation that the barricades had been erected for protection causes.
Tens of hundreds of asylum seekers are in Mexico underneath a coverage requiring them to attend months sooner than submitting claims.
