It may not be exactly what Trump wanted, but the Attorney General’s latest ruling on immigration is a clear win.
In what can only be described as a resounding victory for conservatives and the Trump administration, Attorney General Barr ruled that asylum seekers must remain in detention while they await their hearing.
Immigrants from Central America are flocking to this country, using bleeding heart liberals as their cover.
They know once they cry for asylum, Democrats will take up their case.
The problem is thousands of people are crying for asylum every day, overflooding the borders and creating chaos in our immigration system.
Asylum seekers are generally held between 48-72, given a hearing date, then released.
That is all about to change.
AG Barr has ruled asylum seekers with a “credible fear” of returning to their home country will now be forced to remain in detention centers prior to their hearing.
Barr stated, “The question presented is whether aliens who are originally placed in expedited proceedings and then transferred to full proceedings after establishing credible fear become eligible for bond upon transfer.
“I conclude that such aliens remain ineligible for bond, whether they are arriving at the border or are apprehended in the United States.”
As expected, the decision is already facing backlash from liberals and civil rights organizations.
The American Civil Liberties Union stated, “This is the Trump administration’s latest assault on people fleeing persecution and seeking refuge in the United States.
“Our Constitution does not allow the government to lock up asylum seekers without basic due process.
“We’ll see the administration in court.”
The problem, one that the ACLU and liberals, in general, fail to recognize, is that most of these people are not leaving for fear of being persecuted, they just want out of their country.
The ruling will NOT impact all asylum seekers, however.
Families still cannot be held for more than 20 days, and in most cases far less.
Additionally, unaccompanied minors are excluded from the ruling.
The ruling is expected to take effect in 90 days, barring a stay being issued by a lower level court, which will surely happen.
