WASHINGTON — U.S. President Donald Trump signed a proclamation on Friday suspending the entry of migrants through the U.S. southern border between ports of entry for 90 days, U.S. officials said.

The proclamation, taken together with a regulation issued by the Trump administration on Thursday, will bar migrants who cross the U.S. border with Mexico illegally from receiving asylum in the United States.

Trump's proclamation does not apply to unaccompanied alien children, the officials said.
