    'Catch and Release' Continues As 7,000 Illegal Aliens Have Been Dumped In Tucson

    'Catch and Release' Continues As An Estimated 7,000 Illegal Aliens Have Been Dumped Into Tucson In Past Eight Months

    Authorities in Pima County, AZ warn that Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials are straining public resources by releasing individuals and migrant families into Tucson, AZ in absence of proper facilities to detain thousands of illegal aliens. The problem has become exacerbated now that Customs and Border Patrol have begun releasing illegal aliens into the already overburdened city as well.


    According to Rafael Carranza, Arizona Republic, "Pima County officials estimate that ICE has released about 7,000 migrants in Tucson in the past eight months." This is because ICE physically does not have the space needed to keep illegal aliens in custody while they are processed for asylum claims as well as other background checks. Border Patrol typically hands illegal aliens over to ICE. But, due to ICE's over capacity, Border Patrol has simply started released migrants into Tucson as well. During a Friday meeting between Border Patrol and city officials, the two sides discussed proper ways to remedy the situation while ensuring public safety and efficient management of resources.
    via Arizona Republic:

    The number of migrant families released in Tucson has surpassed the ability of local nonprofits to house them. This past week, the city of Tucson and Pima County opened temporary overflow shelters to house migrants, although those shelters are once again empty, at least for now.


    The goal of Friday's meeting is to "alleviate some of the stressors that we've been seeing with this increase in people," said Pete Bidegain, a special-operations supervisor for the Border Patrol.


    "One of the major concerns that was brought up numerous times in the meeting really comes down to better communication between federal officials, county officials, city officials," he added.

    Bidegain and Border Patrol have not said how many illegal aliens have been released into Tucson. These families are dumped into the city, given orders to show up for a court appearance later on, and are simply trusted by the government to come for their hearing. This practice, otherwise known as "catch and release," continues a year after President Trump signed a memo ordering the policy to stop.


    Bidegain told Tucson Mayor Jonathan Rothschild that remedies such as giving city officials a heads-up when a new busload of illegals would be shipped there could assist the city and non-profits in housing the families.

    Mayor Rothschild also said that if the buses could simply go directly to the non-profit, that would help as well. "If the loaded buses from Border Patrol can go not to the bus station, but to the site of where the (nonprofit) is located, that would be a big help because that saves us a lot as a community," Rothschild said.

    This report comes as President Trump told Fox News Mario Bartimoro today that the immigration crisis is so bad because "...our laws are so bad. The combination of having a great economy and having the weakest immigration laws anywhere in the world by far, and we have catch and release, and we have chain migration, and the visa lottery, we have things that nobody in their right mind would have. We're trying to get rid of them, the Democrats won't do it. We need some Democrats votes, we're unanimous with the Republicans but we need some Democrat votes and they go out of their way to allow these people to come in."

    Trump...we also have laws that YOU can sign a Proclamation today to suspend "any and ALL classes of aliens" coming to our country claiming asylum.

    Sign it now! Shut this down and turn them away!

    NO applications at the border or from around the world for 12 months!!!

    Trump signs proclamation blocking asylum seekers caught at the U.S.-Mexico border


    By TED HESSON
    11/09/2018 09:58 AM EST
    Updated 11/09/2018 05:36 PM EST

    President Donald Trump signed a presidential proclamation Friday morning that will block migrants who cross the U.S.-Mexico border illegally from seeking asylum.

    The move — which will almost certainly face legal opposition — aims to funnel asylum seekers toward ports of entry.


    The ban will last 90 days or until the U.S. strikes a “safe third country” asylum deal with Mexico, according to the text of the proclamation. During that time, U.S. officials will be ordered to consult with the government of Mexico to address the issue of “large groups of aliens traveling through Mexico“ en route to the U.S., the proclamation reads.

    In the run-up to the midterm elections, President Trump fumed over a group of mostly Honduran migrants trekking through Mexico toward the U.S. He questioned the legitimacy of asylum seekers who arrive at the border, calling it a “rampant abuse” of the immigration system.


    The proclamation will work in tandem with a fast-track regulation posted Thursdayin the Federal Register.


    The regulation references the same federal statute the administration employed for Trump’s travel ban. Under the statute, the president can bar the entry of foreigners deemed “detrimental to the interests of the United States.”

    Migrants arrested between ports of entry will still be able to apply for humanitarian relief through other legal avenues, such as “withholding of removal” or protection under the Convention Against Torture.


    But under those programs, migrants face a higher bar to prove a fear of returning to their home countries, and generally aren’t able to petition for a green card or for families members to join them.


    The ban blocking asylum seekers between ports of entry will apply to unaccompanied minors, according to guidance posted online late Friday evening by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.


    A Justice Department official said the opposite on a call with reporters Friday morning, but DOJ later confirmed the asylum ban will apply to unaccompanied children.


    While the Trump administration has painted the level of illegal immigration as a crisis, the number of Border Patrol arrests in fiscal year 2018 — a proxy for illegal crossings — fell below the average over the past decade. A September 2017 Homeland Security Department report found the border was more difficult to cross illegally “than ever before.”


    There has, however, been a change in the composition of border crossings. The number of family members caught at the southwest border in the past year reached the highest level since such record-keeping began in fiscal year 2012.


    Efforts to push asylum seekers toward ports of entry could result in backups on the Mexican side of the border.

    When a caravan of roughly 150 migrants arrived at the San Ysidro port of entry in the spring, asylum seekers waited for days as border officials limited the number of people able to make a claim.


    “You cannot simply move all of your resources toward migrant processing,” a DHS official said Friday, adding that “discussion are ongoing” as to how U.S. Customs and Border Protection will handle a larger volume of entries at ports.


    Mexican officials said they counted roughly 4,800 migrants seeking temporary shelter in a stadium in Mexico City, according to The Associated Press.


    A September report by the DHS inspector general’s office raised questions about CBP’s use of “metering” to limit entry of asylum seekers at ports, saying it “may have led to additional illegal border crossings.”

    Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker praised Trump in written statement issued Friday morning.

    “Thanks to this decisive order from President Trump, we are continuing to provide a path to protection for those who truly need it, while stopping our generosity from being abused," he said.

    But Reps. Jerry Nadler of New York and Zoe Lofgren of California, top Democrats on the Judiciary Committee, urged Trump to work with Congress rather than engage in “unconstitutional attempts to circumvent the law.”

    "No one is above the law, including the President,” they said in a joint statement. “It is particularly ugly that today’s announcement seeks to impose illegal restrictions on migrants fleeing violence and abuse.“

    Where does the Constitution say that California judges control our border policy?

    How much longer will we allow the inmates to run the asylum?


    The Supreme Court only heard 60 cases last year. Meanwhile, the lower courts heard tens of thousands of cases, and their dockets are full of every political issue under the sun. If we are going to agree as a society that the judiciary now controls every political issue, including issues fundamental to our sovereignty, foreign policy, and national security, that essentially means that foreign invaders and smugglers and cartels control our destiny, regardless of who we elect as president or to Congress. Why? Because of California judges.
    Late yesterday, Richard Seeborg, an Obama-appointed federal judge in the Northern District of California, issued a nationwide injunction on the administration’s pilot program for processing credible fear claims in Mexico, known as Migration Protection Protocols.


    Rather than categorically suspending immigration requests at the border, the DHS issued a regulation in December to continue such claims but to have some of the illegal aliens wait in Mexico pending the outcome of the proceedings. As I’ve noted, statute is clear that the same way the president can suspend all entry, he can place partial restrictions or conditions on such entry, a point made by Chief Justice John Roberts himself last year in Trump v. Hawaii. But lower courts are always able to write orders more liberal than recent Supreme Court precedent.
    Judges cannot empower foreign nationals to sue for a right to enter
    The judicial power vested in a judge allows him to grant injunctive relief to an American seeking protection from a regulatory burden or criminal prosecution. Thus a judge can say he will not agree to punish a winning plaintiff even if an executive policy or legislative statute required it. That is judicial review.


    A judge, however, has no such power to “issue an injunction” to enable foreign nationals to come into our country without permission of the president. This judge’s ruling is as valid as an injunction placed by me on an administrative policy. Courts simply lack such power and have no power to enforce these political musings, exactly as Alexander Hamilton had in mind when discussing the lack of concern for judicial power grabs.


    It’s amusing to watch people treat Wong Kim Ark, the birthright citizenship Supreme Court case, as sacred (even though it explicitly bars illegal aliens from birthright citizenship), yet they never heed the words of its author, Justice Horace Gray, in an opinion six years earlier:
    It is not within the province of the judiciary to order that foreigners who have never been naturalized, nor acquired any domicile or residence within the United States, nor even been admitted into the country pursuant to law, shall be permitted to enter, in opposition to the constitutional and lawful measures of the legislative and executive branches of the national government. As to such persons, the decisions of executive or administrative officers, acting within powers expressly conferred by Congress, are due process of law. Nishimura Ekiu v. United States, 1892.
    This is not just ancient history. The high court said the same thing even in 1982, after we passed all of our current immigration statutes. “An alien seeking initial admission to the United States requests a privilege and has no constitutional rights regarding his application.” Landon v. Plasencia, 1982.


    In his new ruling, Judge Seeborg noted, “To be clear, the issue in this case is not whether it would be permissible for Congress to authorize DHS to return aliens to Mexico pending final determinations as to their admissibility.” That, of course, is a political question “for the political branches of government to make, implement, and enforce,” concedes this confused judge. However, he then proceeds to use the time-tested trick of saying he doesn’t like how Trump did it.


    Additionally, sensing the tenuous case of a district judge issuing an injunction outside of the case and outside his geographic jurisdiction, Seeborg said that “defendants have not shown the injunction in this case can be limited geographically. This is not a case implicating local concerns or values.” Thus, because he feels it’s not feasible to follow the Constitution and actually issue judgment only to plaintiffs, this wayward judge simply violates the separation of powers.


    He justifies the practice particularly for immigration because courts have “consistently recognized the authority of district courts to enjoin unlawful policies on a universal basis.” But he never cites a Supreme Court opinion and only cites Ninth Circuit cases that are brand-new! Thus, judges violate rules of standing and precedent for getting involved in border matters, and then, once they do so a few times unchallenged by this administration a few times, they cite similar modern judges as precedent!


    Of course, nowhere in this opinion does the judge even address the emphatic language of 212(f) and 215(a) of the INA granting the president unlimited authority to do this in the plainest language. Nowhere does the judge cite Trump v. Hawaii or Sale (1993), in which the Supreme Court said 180 degrees the opposite. In fact, the judge cites the Ninth Circuit case that the Supreme Court reversed!


    California judges and drug cartels control our sovereignty



    Are we resigned to a destiny where cartels can determine who comes into the country and have California judges override the law? If a single progressive judge is vested with the power to override sovereignty and law, even when the Supreme Court just said the opposite, then there is no representative republic left.


    Here’s a partial list of California judges ruling over the most sensitive national and even international issues:

    • Dolly Gee of the Central District of California, among many other radical opinions overturned by SCOTUS over the years, said the administration must release all children after 20 days, even though the Flores settlement is outdated and statute downright requires the opposite.
    • Dana Sabraw of the Southern District of California said that parents must be released with children too, thereby ruling on a political argument of the media’s virtue-signaling, when laws were not only written but updated in 1996 to explicitly close this loophole.
    • Judge William Alsup of the Northern District of California ruled that Obama’s amnesty must remain for now, in violation of every immigration law on the books.
    • Judge Jon Tigar of the Northern District of California, just like Seeborg, ruled that the administration can’t make a simple commonsense regulation of driving credible fear claims to points of entry, even though 215(a) of the INA states that “it shall be unlawful for any alien to depart from or enter or attempt to depart from or enter the United States except under such reasonable rules, regulations, and orders, and subject to such limitations and exceptions as the President may prescribe.”
    • Judge Edward Chen of the Northern District of California ruled that Temporary Protected Status, rather than being temporary and discretionary, is permanent and mandatory for Trump because he supposedly has “animus against non-white, non-European immigrants in violation of Equal Protection guaranteed by the Constitution.” This after the Supreme Court said explicitly that such political statements cannot be used and after Congress barred the courts from hearing this very case!

    The president has powers over entry into the country without judicial review



    Seeborg and Tigar sit on the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. This is the very court that said in 1996 that the “exclusion of aliens is a fundamental act of sovereignty” and that “the right to do so stems not alone from legislative power but is inherent in the executive power to control the foreign affairs of the nation. (Encuentro del Canto Popular v. Christopher, N.D. Cal. 1996).
    Indeed, Congress has historically granted the executive branch broad latitude to defend sovereignty, more than on any other issue. As immigration historian Peter H. Schuck wrote in his scholarly book, Citizens, Strangers, and In-Betweens:
    Congress has chosen to confer exceedingly broad discretion over the most far-reaching immigration decisions not merely to the executive branch, but to a cabinet official. … In the face of broad, express congressional delegations of authority to the president in the area of external relations, judicial power is the most problematic and the President’s authority, in Justice Jackson’s words, “is at its maximum.” There, “[he may] be said to personify the federal sovereignty.
    Can a judge now “strike down” the administration’s Middle East peace plan? Can a judge “strike down” our military involvement in Afghanistan? Can a judge start issuing visas? Can a judge give standing to Iranians to “strike down” Trump’s termination of the Iran deal? This is exactly why the Supreme Court said in Mathews v. Diaz (1976), that “decisions in these matters [immigration] may implicate our relations with foreign powers” and therefore, these “decisions are frequently of a character more appropriate to either the Legislature or the Executive than to the Judiciary.”
    The court further punctuated this point in Kleindienst v. Mandel, (1972):
    In accord with ancient principles of the international law of nation-states, … the power to exclude aliens is inherent in sovereignty, necessary for maintaining normal international relations and defending the country against foreign encroachments and dangers — a power to be exercised exclusively by the political branches of government.
    But none of these California judges even recognize this foundational principle. At some point, it is the fault of the other branches of government for going along with this toothless charade.


    The Freedom Caucus would be wise to begin making impeachment great again by impeaching Richard Seeborg and these other California judges. This is the same judge who recently said that administration cannot simply ask a citizenship question on the Census, which is the entire foundation of our Census and was a question that was asked from our Founding until the 1950s. It’s time to make one of these judges famous, and there’s nobody better to start with than Seeborg.

    We are at a crossroads in our nation. Either we have three branches of government, or we have one branch of government, with the most liberal of the 94 district courts controlling every aspect of our country. Seeborg did put the injunction on hold until Friday. The administration should make it clear to the Supreme Court in an emergency appeal that if the high court does not police its own quite inferior branch and enforce its own long-standing precedent on the sovereignty of the nation, the separate and more powerful executive branch of government most certainly will.

    What has Trump done after that Judge blocked?

    Is his Attorney General working on this? any emergency appeal to the Supreme Court?

    Has he held an address to the nation from the desk of the Oval and in a dignified manner (no tweets)---(no screaming at the dems) but an address to the nation?

    He fought like heck on the tax bill and to get Kavanaugh confirmed. Why does he only "play fight" and pretend on the immigration issue? or is he too busy pretending to rage over the border, while he and Kushner quietly plans immigration boost?
