The government has been shut down for over a month

Senior administration officials defended the Senate bill to reopen the government, describing it as “reasonable” and “rational” in a call with reporters Tuesday.

Officials said they believe the legislation would address the humanitarian crisis on the border “in a manner that was consistent with” protecting vulnerable populations, by preventing individuals from taking a dangerous journey north and helping to reunite families as quickly as possible for those that have come to the US.

Included in the bill is a program that would allow minors from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras to apply for asylum in their home county or a designated surrounding country. Former President Obama rolled out a similar program that was later scrapped by the Trump administration in 2017. Senior administration officials insisted that the program, as laid out in the bill, is “very different” from what was then known as the Central American Minors program.

What the Trump administration is proposing: The proposed program would be based on referrals from the UN refugee agency and other nongovernmental organizations. Those seeking to apply would also be required to pay a fee, unlike the scrapped program. Minors who attempt to apply for asylum at the border, instead of through a processing center would be returned. An official said that the exception would be minors that are “still be eligible to be considered for withholding of removal or protection under the Convention Against Torture” — a higher bar for relief than asylum claims. Even if the legislation was signed, the program would not take effect until processing centers are set up, officials said.

Officials also suggested that there might be room to negotiate on some of the provisions like the cap for in-country asylum processing and the exclusion of families in the Central American minors protection program.

“We have no illusions that we have the world’s first perfect piece legislation and we would be happy to have conversations with Democrats and anyone that would like to come to the table and talk about ways to improve this legislation and find a consensus to pass it,” one official said.
