The White House will appeal a court ruling halting a Trump administration policy requiring some asylum seekers to return to Mexico and wait for their legal cases to proceed.

Speaking to the New York Times, the unnamed official said that the administration was seeking to tighten "credible fear" rules for migrants claiming asylum in the US.

Ebrard said his ministry would get in contact on Wednesday with the new leaders of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

As a result of that court order, known as the Flores consent decree, parents who arrive at the border with their children are released into the country while they await their asylum hearings, which many of them never show up for. Another would be to have U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement put more emphasis on tracking down illegal immigrants already ordered deported.

Trump's battle to prevent illegal immigration and soaring numbers of asylum seekers has turned into the biggest political fight in the country ahead of next year's presidential election.

Just last month, U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported 92,000 people were apprehended crossing illegally and 8,900 were children.

"Try as it may, the Trump administration can not simply ignore our laws in order to accomplish its goal of preventing people from seeking asylum in the United States", Ms Rabinovitz said in a statement after the ruling.

In addition, around 10,800 people who presented themselves at ports of entry were deemed inadmissible in March, bringing the number of total border enforcement actions to above 103,000, the most for one month in more than a decade.

They also are looking at trying to curtail the remittances immigrants send back home, looking to erase some of the economic incentive that draws them to the USA, the official told reporters Tuesday, laying out a sweeping agenda for acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, who is slated to start the job Wednesday.

"Much media attention has focused on caravans coming across from Central America", Rio Grande Valley Sector Chief Patrol Agent Rodolfo Karisch said at a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing. It was not immediately clear what would happen to those asylum-seekers when they come back to the USA for their court dates.

Top Republicans in Congress expressed concern over vacancies at Homeland Security and cautioned Trump about more churn after the resignation of Nielsen.

However, his comments on child separations reflected the confused nature of the White House's messaging on the sensitive immigration issue. The photos, taken in 2014 by The Associated Press, were wrongly described as illustrating imprisonment under the Trump administration. "Also they come in and raid their houses, and it's very risky", Trump said, referring to locals affected by the influx of migrants.

Immigration court records show the asylum denial rate rose from 21 percent in 2016, the a year ago of the Obama administration, to almost 47 percent as of January.

A third move would tighten the standards for immigrants looking to begin asylum claims at the border.

"President Obama separated children".

"The president has to have some stability, and particularly with the number one issue that he's made for his campaign, throughout his two and a half years of presidency", Grassley said.
