Persons who have been convicted of a serious criminal past are prohibited from seeking the protection of refugees, regardless of how they enter the country. It is significant that the Trump administration has not characterized these agreements with “safe third countries” as a shameful realization that these countries do not meet the implicit requirements of a safe third country.
