    Ruling by AG Barr means thousands more migrants may wait months in detention

    Ruling by Attorney General Barr means thousands more migrants may wait months in detention

    A ruling by Attorney General William Barr on Tuesday means certain migrants seeking asylum will not be released on bond but instead will stay in detention.

    WASHINGTON, DC — Attorney General William Barr weighed in on an immigration case on Tuesday, establishing a new precedent that could affect thousands of migrants at the southwest border seeking asylum in the U.S.

    In his decision
    , Barr said that asylum seekers who begin in expedited removal, in which they are not given the right to see a judge, and are then transferred to full removal proceedings, in which they wait to make their case before a judge, should not be released on bond. It means that thousands of asylum seekers who once would have been out on bond and living in the U.S. while awaiting a decision on their status will now be kept in detention centers, where the wait times are now climbing from months to a year.

    "This ruling gives [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] the legal authority to detain all of these people indefinitely," said Sarah Pierce, a policy analyst with the Migration Policy Institute, an immigration think tank. "That's if they have the capacity. So I think the actual effect of this ruling will be severely limited by ICE"s capacity."

    Due to the limited capacity, Barr said his decision should go into effect in 90 days in order to give ICE time to build bed space.

    Under U.S. law, the attorney general has the right to overturn the decisions of immigration judges and establish sweeping new precedents, such as this.



    What's really going on with the 'breaking point' at the border?

    The decision is expected to affect a broad swath of immigrants coming to the southwest border to claim asylum. Immigrants who enter the U.S. without documents, or with documents suspected to be fraudulent, are placed into expedited removal before they have an interview with U.S. asylum officers at which they try to establish they have credible fear for their safety if they return to their home countries. And more than 90 percent of asylum seekers pass the credible fear interview, according to Department of Homeland Security statistics.

    Barr's decision reversed an immigration judge's decision to release an immigrant on bond while waiting for his proceedings. He also said that the Board of Immigration Appeals, a panel that reviews immigration court decisions, "wrongly decided" that only immigrants who enter the U.S. through legal ports of entry should be detained while others could be released on bond.

    As a result of the decision, thousands of asylum seekers will remain in ICE detention while they await a decision in their case. Families with children under 18, however, will not be affected because of a federal court decision that prevents minors from being held longer than 20 days.

    The Obama administration was criticized in 2014 for placing bonds so high that immigrants could not afford them.

    Barr's decision could be problematic for ICE, where space to hold detained immigrants is already extremely limited. Many private prison companies and state and local jails are awarded ICE contracts to hold surplus immigrants.

    90 days? These are issues that demand immediate action, not action 3 months from now. I'd almost guarantee that the ACLU and other illegal alien special interest groups are filing lawsuits in California to have this overturned as we speak.

    Headline at Breitbart

    Attorney General Barr Blocks Catch and Release by Migration Judges

    then in the fine print

    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

    Barr’s new ruling does not apply to the many “UAC” migrant minors

    It also does not apply to migrants who walk up to the nation’s official ports of entry to ask for asylum.

    The decision does not overcome the 2015 Flores decision by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in California, which forces DHS to release migrants who bring children. (newsflash---just about ALL bring children)

    --------------------------------------------

    and the Forever Trumpers and their new found hero Barr are running wild,


    here is one with 231 upvotes

    A big thank you to the AG for "Barring" left-wing activist judges from using catch and release.
    Thank you Mr. Barr for putting America 1st.

    Thank you Mr. Barr for NOT being Jeff Sessions.




    and another with 77 upvotes

    Finally, we have a real AG who just happens to have a sack!

    Bravo, Mr. Attorney General!
