The head of asylum for US Citizenship and Immigration Services, John Lafferty, has been reassigned to deputy director of a service center in Virginia, according to an agency official.

Lafferty's reassignment comes after an email was publicized in July that he had sent to asylum officers noting the challenges they were being asked to endure in order to implement a new asylum policy.

It is unclear if Lafferty's move is connected to the email. BuzzFeed first reported Lafferty's reassignment and reports that acting USCIS Director and Trump administration insider Ken Cuccinelli pushed him out.

Justice Department asks Supreme Court to allow border asylum ban

Justice Department asks Supreme Court to allow border asylum ban The Trump administration asked the court to allow it to implement its most sweeping effort yet to overhaul the asylum system along the border while a legal challenge plays out in court. U.S. Solicitor General Noel Francisco, who represents the federal government before the court, urged the justices to issue an administrative stay on a ruling by a judge in San Francisco, who earlier in the summer blocked a regulation that would make most migrants from Central America and other countries ineligible for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border. The administration had already asked the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to do so.

Who Is Eligible to Apply for Asylum ?You may apply for asylum if you are at a port of entry or in the United States. You may apply for asylum regardless of your immigration status and within one yea.

After simmering on social media and conservative news sites for a weekend, images of University of Nebraska-Lincoln employees protesting a student recruiting for Turning Point USA drew to a full boil by the following Monday.

In the memo, Lafferty wrote that the agency was "once again being asked to adapt, and to do so with very little time to train and prepare."

"If I didn't know that we have some of the most dedicated, adaptable, and most talented public servants presently serving in the federal government, I would be concerned about being able to implement these changes on such short notice," Lafferty wrote.

Asked about Lafferty's move, a USCIS official said the agency "has the authority to reassign these high-level managers to best serve the agency."
