Au contraire, mon ami...
That's a common misconception, Rick... But it's not true! (posted for the 5th time, I believe!) The law you're referring to is provided for in Article 26 of the U.N.’s Asylum Procedures Directive (APD). The article “Asylum in the United States,” posted by the American Immigration Council on August 16, 2022, states that the U.N. 1951 Convention and 1967 Protocol both declared that “Asylum is a protection grantable to foreign nationals already in the United States or arriving at the border who meet the international definition of a “refugee.” They define a refugee as “a person who is unable or unwilling to return to his or her home country.” It also pointed out that, “Congress incorporated this definition into U.S. immigration law in the Refugee Act of 1980.” Further, according to the U.N. Human Rights Counsel (UNHRC); "The Convention does not require refugees to claim asylum in the first safe country they reach, or make it illegal if they have passed through another safe country." A perfect example is the fact that a refugee from Bulgaria must pass through as many as seven different countries, yet they can still ask for asylum in England!
