News Wrap: Supreme Court lets new asylum policy take effect

Clip: 09/12/2019 | 5m 39s

In our news wrap Thursday, the Trump administration began enforcing a new asylum policy after the Supreme Court allowed it to take effect nationwide. The rule requires migrants who pass through a country other than Mexico before reaching the U.S. to seek asylum there first. Also, the number of people missing in the Bahamas has dropped to 1,300, less than half of what was previously recorded.
