The narrative from leftist media over the past few months has been that asylum seekers usually show up for their hearings. Even a few right-leaning publications echoed this sentiment based on cumulative statistics over the years. But looking at the current crisis in which tens of thousands of asylum seekers are applying every month, the old narrative blows up.
According to acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, 90% of asylum seekers do not show up for their hearing and final orders of removal in absentia are filed.
In a recent hearing before the Senate, McAleenan revealed this shocking fact in an exchange with Senator Lindsey Grahama (R-SC).
“It depends on demographic, the court, but we see too many cases where people are not showing up,” McAleenan said. “Out of those 7,000 cases, 90 received final orders of removal in absentia, 90 percent.”
“90 percent did not show up?” Graham asked.
“Correct, that is a recent sample from families crossing the border,” McAleenan said.
Democrats will likely point to it being a “recent sample” and cry foul, but isn’t what’s happening now really what’s important? In a crisis like this, we shouldn’t be looking at historical data to determine the extent of the problem. We need to look at the problem at hand. The border situation isn’t new, but the extent and severity of the problem is definitely different from how it’s been in the past.
One must be either blind or willfully ignorant to not realize the vast majority of asylum seekers are not evading persecution. They’re looking for American prosperity and free stuff and they’ll break the law to get it.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
