    AG Jeff Sessions carrying out Trump immigration restriction agenda

    AG Jeff Sessions carrying out Trump immigration restriction agenda

    Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 20, 2018



    ….and boy are the Leftwing Open Borders agitators steamed!


    Former US Senator and now Attorney General Sessions, who you will recall got on the Trump train in the earliest days of the campaign, is quietly carrying out an immigration restriction agenda at the Justice Department and in the courts.


    The primary reason we elected this president in the first place was to get immigration under control and Sessions is doing that!




    If the President foolishly pushes Jeff Sessions out of the Justice Department, the Senate will never confirm a replacement who would carry out the immigration control agenda that Sessions has undertaken.


    Yesterday, I told you about the asylum scam, here, and today we bring your attention to Mother Jones with this headline:


    Sessions Is Poised to Make It Vastly Harder for Asylum-Seekers to Get Out of Detention

    A new decision from Attorney General Jeff Sessions is likely to make it dramatically harder for tens of thousands of asylum-seekers to get out of detention.


    How many asylum-seekers are in detention and how many are free to roam America while waiting for a decision? I don’t know the answer, but when I find it, I will let you know. But, know that thousands of wannabe refugees are simply free across America. Vast numbers of them will never show up for their asylum hearing.


    On Tuesday, in a now-familiar tactic, Sessions used his broad authority over America’s immigration courts to refer a case to himself. The move will allow him to reinterpret a 2005 decision from the Justice Department’s Board of Immigration Appeals that gives some migrants the ability to get out of detention on bond. Sessions now appears likely to strip many detained immigrants of that right.

    The self-referral comes two weeks after the Trump administration proposed a rule that would allow it to detain migrant families indefinitely. Combined, these two moves would make families seeking asylum much more likely to spend months or even years in detention.

    And, what should be done now is a massive public relations campaign by the US throughout Mexico and Central America about how asylum seekers will be detained maybe for years. Such an effort could have a chilling effect on the hordes hankering to move north.


    Mother Jones continues…


    Under current law, asylum-seekers who cross the border without authorization are entitled to bond hearings before an immigration judge if they establish a credible fear of being persecuted in their home country. In a strange twist, asylum-seekers who request protection at official border crossings—the government’s preferred route—must ask Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to grant them parole, rather than asking a judge to grant bond. That distinction matters because ICE has shown an almost complete unwillingness to grant parole under Trump.






    Eleanor Acer of Human Rights First: “This is just not who we are as a country.” How dare Acer and her ilk be the arbiters of who we are as a country! If it was up to her we would have no borders and therefore no country!


    Eleanor Acer, the director of the refugee protection program at Human Rights First, says eliminating bond hearings would have an “absolutely devastating impact” on migrants because of the difficulty of being granted parole by ICE. “This is just not who we are as a country,” she says. “This should not be a country where people are thrown into jails and not even allowed to see a judge who decides whether or not they could be released from detention or not.”


    Sessions’ decision to review the case is the latest step in the Trump administration’s systematic crackdown on asylum-seekers. In June, Sessions all but eliminated gang and domestic violence as grounds for asylum after referring a different case to himself. Earlier this month, the Trump administration proposed a rule to terminate the Flores settlement agreement, a two-decade-old court settlement that prevents the government from detaining migrant children for more than about 20 days. The proposal would allow the Trump administration to detain families indefinitely.
    By the way, this is very significant—eliminating fear of violence back home as a grounds for gaining refugee protection and ultimately US citizenship!


    We have told you over the years how the Open Borders Left is systematically eroding the definition of who is a refugee. A legitimate refugee, under the 1951 UN Convention, must be able to prove that he or she (personally!) would be PERSECUTED for one of several reasons including race, religion, political views, if returned to their home country. There is nothing in the definition about escaping violence or even war.


    In recent years we have been allowing border-crossers to claim they are escaping gangs and abusive husbands to gain a legal foothold in America. Sessions is forcing adherence to the original law and not allowing this expansion.

    Continue reading Mother Jones here.

    If Sessions is forced out, you can be sure that the likes of Eleanor Acer and MS-13 gang members will be whooping with joy!

    And, Trump will have signaled that he is abandoning an immigration control agenda.

    For me, how we manage immigration is the only issue that matters for the future of America.


    If you agree and are looking for something to do, let the President know that you like what AG Sessions is doing on the only issue that matters!

    Sessions’ decision to review the case is the latest step in the Trump administration’s systematic crackdown on asylum-seekers. In June, Sessions all but eliminated gang and domestic violence as grounds for asylum after referring a different case to himself. Earlier this month, the Trump administration proposed a rule to terminate the Flores settlement agreement, a two-decade-old court settlement that prevents the government from detaining migrant children for more than about 20 days. The proposal would allow the Trump administration to detain families indefinitely.

    Sarah Pierce, a policy analyst at the Migration Policy Institute, calls Sessions’ referral a “natural progression” of the administration’s efforts to detain more migrants. “This administration is like a very well-coordinated ballet of hardline immigration policies,” she says.

    In February, in Jennings v. Rodriguez, the Supreme Court reversed an appeals court decision that found that asylum-seekers who arrive at border crossings, as well as some other migrants, have a right to bond hearings before an immigration judge every six months. The court’s five conservative justices decided that there was not a statutory right to those hearings, but sent the case back to the lower court to evaluate whether there is a constitutional right to bond evaluations. Sessions wrote in his referral that Jennings v. Rodriguez may require him to overturn the 2005 decision from the Board of Immigration Appeals about bond eligibility, but he did not explain why.



    A class-action lawsuit filed by three groups—the American Civil Liberties Union, Human Rights First, and the Center for Gender and Refugee Studies—in March showed that in five of its 24 field offices, ICE paroled 92 percent of eligible asylum-seekers between 2011 and 2013. In the first months of the Trump administration, from February to September 2017, ICE’s parole rate dropped to less than 4 percent in those offices. The El Paso, Texas, field office denied parole in all 349 cases it heard.

    James Boasberg, a district court judge in Washington, DC, ordered ICE in July to provide individualized parole reviews for migrants and keep them in detention only if they are a flight risk or a danger to the community. Boasberg was essentially ordering ICE to do what it already claimed to be doing, since a 2009 ICE parole directive, which is still in effect, required individual reviews. But earlier this month, the plaintiffs said in a court filing that the Trump administration appears to be violating its parole directive. Data the government submitted to Boasberg last month showed that only 25 percent of asylum-seekers in the five ICE field offices were granted parole in the six weeks after he issued his injunction. The plaintiffs are asking Boasberg to force the government to produce evidence that is complying with his order or, alternatively, to show why it should not be held in contempt of court.

    Ansly Damus, a Haitian national who is the named plaintiff in the class-action lawsuit, has now been detained for 23 months. He has not been outside in nearly two years because the Ohio jail where he is being held does not have a recreation area, according to a court filing. Damus was denied parole again after Boasberg’s injunction. He had already won asylum twice, but the Department of Homeland Security was able to keep him in jail by appealing those rulings.

    Elizabeth Ford, Damus’ lawyer in Ohio, says that the most recent parole denial was “particularly egregious” in light of the court order. The denial was just a form letter with no explanation, she said.

    Asked if she thought ICE made a good-faith effort to review his parole request, Ford didn’t hesitate. “Oh, no, they’re not seriously considering this,” she said before adding, “That’s ridiculous.”

    It's refreshing to see that someone else is thinking exactly as I am. If Trump fires Jeff Sessions, he'll never get someone else nominated through the Senate that will be anywhere near as tough as Session. Actually, it will be the opposite. Anyone that Trump could get appointed as our next Attorney General will probably even reverse many of Sessions policy changes.

    If, as Trump claims, immigration is a top issue for him, it would be a huge mistake to fire AG Jeff Sessions!

    NO asylum at our Ports of Entry!

    We cannot have 2 billion people on the planet show up on our doorstep OR warehouse them in tents OR release them on our soil.

    MANDATORY they apply in their home country and get PRIOR approval and documents to come here.

    They need to be vetted, medical exam and NO diseases! We cannot track any documents from here! They must be given backgrounds checks in their home country by authorities there. Many of them lie and have FAKE documents they bring here!

    Many do NOT qualify to come here! Stop forcing us to foot the bill for these detention centers, education, food, medical, lawsuits … all of it!

    We are not the dumping ground or ATM machine for the entire worlds breeding poor! We are not the solution to their problems.

    Send the U.N. to go clean up their countries corruption and mess! Do not dump this or them on our backs!

    We have our own to take care of in these floods, hurricanes, tornados, fires, mud slides, volcanoes! Millions of American's displaced and need help!

    STOP FORCING US TO TAKE IN A PAY FOR FOREIGNERS...WE ARE SICK OF IT!!!

    We must stop all asylum claims. Just stop it all. We have a back-log of over 800,000 asylum claims as it stands now. Just stop taking on any more. Don't let them in. Stop them at the border. Turn them away, turn them back, do whatever you have to do to keep them out of the country. If they get into the country, and they tell you they want to claim "asylum", tell them we're full, have an 8 year back-log, and won't be taking in any more asylum-seekers indefinitely, and give them the boot, turn them right back out of the country. Also, make a list of countries that we do not even recognize as countries that we'll even consider asylum seekers from, which is a very long list, because today there are no countries that we should be recognizing as sources of legitimate asylum-seekers. Very simple.

    If Abraham Lincoln could suspend habeas corpus to win the Civil War, then we can suspend these stupid asylum laws to win this one.

    Call it "prosecutorial discretion".
