The proposed bill includes some big changes to U.S. immigration policy that were not included in the president’s public announcement — including a provision that would sharply limit asylum applications for children from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador.

“It’s a trojan horse filled with many extreme immigration proposals,” said Kerri Talbot of the Immigration Hub, an immigrants’ rights organization, during a conference call with reporters on Tuesday. “The bill includes the most extreme proposals on asylum I think that I’ve ever seen,” Talbot said…

[T]he president did not mention that the proposal would in fact require migrant children to apply from their home countries, and prevent them from applying in person at the border. In addition, only migrant children with a “qualified” parent in the U.S. would be permitted to apply for asylum — a sharp break from current asylum policy.
