Question (Travel/Asylum seeking in the US from KW.)

I was wondering about a few laws that were confusing mainly the recent proclamation, I'm a fully vaccinated 17 year old that's trying to get asylum (and I will get a COVID test before going there.)

So it denies entry from a few countries including the Schengen area in the EU. My flight's going to stop at Frankfurt, Germany which is one of the denied countries. But the proclamation also has this in it:

(b) Nothing in this proclamation shall be construed to affect any individual’s eligibility for asylum, withholding of removal, or protection under the regulations issued pursuant to the legislation implementing the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, consistent with the laws and regulations of the United States.

So does this mean that I can still apply for asylum without being denied immediately/sent back? Long story short, I'm trying to run away from my homophobic country and the flight's going to be real soon and I'm scared but I think I can do it.
