Judicial tyranny: ACLU will get judges to block Trump’s latest asylum maneuver

Judicial tyranny ACLU will get judges to block Trumps latest asylum maneuver

As reports come in that President Trump is going to block most asylum seekers who are crossing through Mexico through enforcement of a properly interpreted rule, the ACLU and others have already threatened to challenge it in court. And they’ll succeed. There will be a judge they can find who will rule against the President’s actions just as they find someone to rule against all of the President’s attempts to slow the surge of illegal immigrants crossing the southern border.

This is why I have no sense of hope even as other conservative outlets praise the President’s actions. We’re not looking at an situation in which the President can keep throwing things against the wall until something sticks. Nothing will stick until it reaches the Supreme Court and is forced to stick, and with John Roberts as Chief Justice, there’s no guarantee the rule of law will win in the end.

There are some who rightly go after judicial tyranny, the current state of affairs in which too many judges have supreme power over what can and cannot be done by America’s leaders and representatives. It seems no matter what the President does to try to stop illegal immigration, there’s certain to be a judge who rules against it. These partisan hacks are not doing their job for the sake of the people or the Constitution. They’re operating on a progressive agenda, and open borders is the end game there.

This, more than anything else, is why the 2020 election is so important. The GOP (hopefully) learned its lesson in 2017 and 2018 by not acting to stop the current border crisis before it began. Now that it’s a full-blown emergency, they need to regain control of the House and retain control of the Senate and White House. No other action will prevent the invasion at the southern border as millions intend to continue stealing our nation’s sovereignty.

They do this because progressive politicians are encouraging it.

Here’s the AP story. Before it are my final thoughts on the matter:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Reversing decades of U.S. policy, the Trump administration said Monday it will end all asylum protections for most migrants who arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border — the president’s most forceful attempt to block asylum claims and slash the number of people seeking refuge in America.

The new rule, expected to go into effect Tuesday, would cover countless would-be refugees, many of them fleeing violence and poverty in Central America. It is certain to face legal challenges.

According to the plan published in the Federal Register , migrants who pass through another country — in this case, Mexico — on their way to the U.S. will be ineligible for asylum. The rule also applies to children who have crossed the border alone.

The vast majority of people affected by the rule are from Central America. But sometimes migrants from Africa , Cuba or Haiti and other countries try to come through the U.S.-Mexico border, as well.

There are some exceptions, including for victims of human trafficking and asylum-seekers who were denied protection in another country. If the country the migrant passed through did not sign one of the major international treaties governing how refugees are managed (though most Western countries signed them) a migrant could still apply for U.S. asylum.

Mexican Foreign Relations Secretary Marcelo Ebrard said Monday that his country “does not agree with any measure that limits access to asylum.” Mexico’s asylum system is also currently overwhelmed.

Trump administration officials say the changes are meant to close the gap between the initial asylum screening that most people pass and the final decision on asylum that most people do not win.

Attorney General William Barr said that the United States is “a generous country but is being completely overwhelmed” by the burdens associated with apprehending and processing hundreds of thousands of migrants at the southern border.

He also said the rule is aimed at “economic migrants” and “those who seek to exploit our asylum system to obtain entry to the United States.”

But immigrant rights groups, religious leaders and humanitarian groups have said the Republican administration’s policies amount to a cruel effort to keep immigrants out of the country. Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador are poor countries, often wracked by violence.

“This is yet another move to turn refugees with well-founded fears of persecution back to places where their lives are in danger — in fact the rule would deny asylum to refugees who do not apply for asylum in countries where they are in peril,” said Eleanor Acer of Human Rights First.

ACLU attorney Lee Gelernt, who has litigated some of the major challenges to the Trump administration’s immigration policies, said the rule was unlawful and the group planned to sue.

“The rule, if upheld, would effectively eliminate asylum for those at the southern border,” he said. “But it is patently unlawful.”

U.S. law allows refugees to request asylum when they arrive at the U.S. regardless of how they arrive or cross. The crucial exception is for those who have come through a country considered to be “safe,” but the Immigration and Nationality Act, which governs asylum law, is vague on how a country is determined safe. It says pursuant to a bilateral or multilateral agreement.”

Right now, the U.S. has such an agreement, known as a “safe third country,” only with Canada.

Mexico and Central American countries have been considering a regional compact on the issue, but nothing has been decided. Guatemalan officials were expected in Washington on Monday, but apparently a meeting between Trump and Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales was canceled amid a court challenge in Guatemala over whether the country could agree to a safe-country agreement with the U.S.

The new rule also will apply to the initial asylum screening, known as a “credible fear” interview, at which migrants must prove they have credible fears of returning to their home country. It applies to migrants who are arriving to the U.S., not those who are already in the country.

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan said additional funding given by Congress for aid at the U.S.-Mexico border isn’t enough.

“Until Congress can act, this interim rule will help reduce a major ‘pull’ factor driving irregular migration to the United States.”

The treaties that countries must have signed according to the new rule are the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees, the 1967 Protocol or the Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment. But, for example, while Australia, France and Brazil have signed those treaties, so have Afghanistan and Libya, places the U.S. does not consider safe.

Along with the administration’s recent effort to send asylum seekers back over the border , Trump has tried to deny asylum to anyone crossing the border illegally and restrict who can claim asylum, and the attorney general recently tried to keep thousands of asylum seekers detained while their cases play out.

Nearly all of those efforts have been blocked by courts.

Tens of thousands of Central American migrant families cross the border each month, many claiming asylum. Border facilities have been dangerously cramped and crowded well beyond capacity. The Department of Homeland Security’s watchdog found fetid, filthy conditions for many children. And lawmakers who traveled there recently decried conditions .

But many migrants say they are simply too scared to stay in their own countries.

Oscar Ponce, a 48-year-old bus driver from Honduras who was waiting in a Mexican border town to cross into the U.S., said he wanted to apply for asylum legally. He left his home after gangs threatened to kill him if he didn’t pay their “tax.”

“Plan B is through the river,” Ponce told The Associated Press in Ciudad Juarez.

Immigration courts are backlogged by more than 800,000 cases, meaning many people won’t have their asylum claims heard for years despite more judges being hired.

People are generally eligible for asylum in the U.S. if they fear return to their home country because they would be persecuted based on race, religion, nationality or membership in a particular social group.

During the budget year for 2009, there were 35,811 asylum claims, and 8,384 were granted. During 2018 budget year, there were 162,060 claims filed, and 13,168 were granted.

Final Thoughts

As long as there are judges who can be found that hate the President’s agenda, the ACLU will block literally everything. The border solution will only be solved at the ballot box in 2020. Democrats must be removed wholesale.

Pregnant illegal alien rescued by border patrol while lost in the desert

Pregnant illegal alien rescued by border patrol while lost in the desert

A 24-year-old pregnant Guatemalan woman was traveling with other migrants through the desert after crossing the border illegally. Border patrol rescued them when half of their group left them in the desert and were later apprehended by border patrol. She was vomiting and had to be treated immediately before being taken to a hospital.

The desire to be anchored to the United States by having a child born on American soil can cause dilemmas for expecting mothers. On one hand, he closer to the expected birth date it is, the greater the likelihood they won’t be deported before the baby is born. But trekking thousands of miles is difficult when one is not pregnant, let alone while carrying a child.

This particular migrant likely picked the poor timing – in the extreme heat of the summer months – based on her desire to reach American soil before she was no longer able to travel the long distance. That choice nearly cost her and her baby their lives.

Yuma Sector BP Rescues Pregnant Woman Lost in Desert

Agents accompanying a Yuma Sector Border Patrol Search, Trauma, and Rescue team soon located the group, among them a 24-year-old Guatemalan woman who was four months pregnant. In route to Yuma Station, agents provided immediate aid to the pregnant female, who had begun to vomit, and contacted emergency medical services for an ambulance transport to a local hospital.

The woman was treated and released from the hospital Saturday.

The entire group of 13 illegal aliens was processed for immigration violations.

Border Patrol warns that illegally crossing the border any time of year can be fatal, but summer months, when temperatures can reach over 120 degrees, prove especially dangerous.

The timing of this is pertinent as the President considers putting an end to birthright citizenship. It’s an alluring prospect to have one’s baby on U.S. soil, one that is putting lives at risk for the sake of a broken policy loophole.

‘Breastfeeding’ illegal alien Maria Domingo-Garcia charged with identity fraud

Breastfeeding illegal alien Maria Domingo-Garcia charged with identity fraud

An illegal immigrant arrested in an early August ICE raid made national news this week when her lawyers claimed she was nursing mother who needed to breastfeed her 4-month-old daughter. But her claims have been contested by ICE as medical examinations show she is not lactating and she answered “no” when initially asked if she was breastfeeding. The narrative was created after the fact, according to ICE, and progressive legacy media pounced on it.

But Maria Domingo-Garcia’s situation is getting worse. She has now been charged with identity fraud stemming from willfully using someone else’s social security number to create a false identity. She is now in the custody of U.S. Marshals while awaiting federal trial.

Legacy media coverage of this story has been shoddy at best. They’re heavily reporting the story from the lawyers for Domingo-Garcia and reporting it as rock-solid evidence. But they’re splashing cold water on statements from Homeland Security that show all indicators point to Domingo-Garcia lying in order to gain her freedom. Considering she (1) Entered the country illegally to begin with, (2) Lied about her identity to illegally acquire documents that allowed her to work, and (3) Didn’t make her claims about breastfeeding until long after she was apprehended, it’s a safer bet that she’s lying, not ICE.

This is all about building a pro-open-borders narrative, and it’s the reason NOQ Report needs help in fighting that narrative. Donations are used to provide and promote truthful pro-American content to the masses. We appreciate every dollar we receive.

As Domingo-Garcia’s lawyers press their story, her family has become the focus of media reports. It tugs on the heartstrings that this mother-of-three is separated from her husband and children, and it’s good that the community and their church have stepped up to help them. But the law is the law, and when you break the law, there are consequences for everyone involved. If identity fraud can be dismissed because the alleged criminal has a family, the law is meaningless.

As the saying goes, if you do the crime, you do the time. If Domingo-Garcia is found guilty of identity fraud, progressive media and Democrats will cry foul because of her family. Would they do the same for an American citizen committing identity fraud?

Illegal alien Kevin Mendoza charged with 1st degree rape in Maryland sanctuary county

Illegal alien Kevin Mendoza charged with 1st degree rape in Maryland sanctuary county

The ongoing fight by sanctuary jurisdictions to protect criminal illegal immigrants has claimed another victim. A young woman was brutally raped and severely beaten by an illegal alien while trying to enter her Silver Springs, MD, apartment complex.

This is the fourth such occurrence in the county in the last month. But as ICE continues to issue detainers for local law enforcement to release them to federal custody for deportation, the county continues allowing these vicious criminals out on the streets. The protection of criminal illegal immigrants supersedes the safety of American citizens in these sanctuary jurisdictions.

Kevin Mendoza, 26, has been charged with 1st degree rape and 2nd degree attempted murder. He is a former resident of the apartment complex where the victim lives.

The police statement tells of a gruesome crime allegedly committed by Mendoza. But even as heinous as this crime was, it’s unlikely law enforcement will be allowed by politicians to honor the detainer. If he is released on bond, he will almost certainly vanish into the wind, as happens so often in these cases where sanctuary jurisdictions release criminal illegal aliens.

According to Nate Madden at Conservative Review, this is becoming a trend across the country:

Yet another illegal alien charged with rape in notorious Maryland sanctuary county

Montgomery County was also the setting for the infamous Rockville rape case, in which a 14-year-old girl was allegedly brutally raped by two illegal immigrants in a public school bathroom. One of the accused was from Guatemala, the other from El Salvador.

This news also follows on the heels of a report last week from North Carolina, where ICE says that Mecklenburg County — which contains the city of Charlotte — release another illegal alien accused of first-degree rape despite an ICE detainer.

Out west last week, ICE arrested a 59-year-old Mexican national who had been convicted of “sex assault on a child” but given no jail time. The agency claims that Boulder County, Colorado, ignored its detainer requests in this case, just as they did for the same person in 2017, when he was arrested for aggravated assault.

Democrats must be made to acknowledge their sanctuary jurisdiction policies are harming American citizens AND the legal and illegal immigrant communities they say they’re protecting. It’s a failed experiment. Let’s end this madness now.
