I have to admit that I had doubts about AG Bill Barr, because he had been friends with Mueller for 30 years. But, each and every day he demonstrates why no one will ever compare him to Jeff Sessions and Rod Rosenstein – and yesterday was no different. He has ruled that immigration judges cannot release an illegal alien, even if they apply for asylum. This plugs one of the largest openings for illegals to get into the country who then go into hiding so that they do not get deported. The AG’s ruling is a binding legal decision and must be obeyed.
The decision will dramatically shift the migration-caused civic and housing crises from the nation’s blue-collar communities over to the Congress and the Department of Homeland Security, whose budget and detention centers only have enough resources to house about 50,000 people year-round.
“The [text of the relevant] Act provides that, if an alien in expedited proceedings establishes a credible fear, he “shall be detained for further consideration of the application for asylum,” says Barr’s April 16 decision, titled. Matter of M-S-. Because of the law, “I order that, unless DHS paroles the respondent under section 212(d)(5)(A) of the Act, he must be detained until his removal proceedings conclude.”
“This is a HUGE ruling that will harm thousands seeking protection from persecution at the US border since far more will be held in detention even after passing the threshold screening under the credible fear standard,” complained Greg Chen, director of government relations at the American Immigration Lawyers Association.
Barr directed officials to delay implementation of the law for 90 days, giving DHS managers — and congressional leaders — three months to decide which migrants should be released into the nation’s cities and towns.
The delay gives time for DHS to set up tent cities where migrants can be held until the judges decide the asylum pleas. If DHS detains most of the migrants — and so prevents them from working — the next wave of migrants may decide that any effort to get into the United would be an economic disaster for their families.
My book is here! And I personally handed a copy to our President at the White House!!! I hope you enjoy it
