Its surprising how much you can accomplish if you don't care who gets the credit
We have seem many porclamations from Trump but very little action. An Executive Order can be undone in just two years if the electorate is as ignorant as they were in 2018.... or if the elections departments in many states cheat. We want to see real action. Ignore the dems. What are they going to due.... sue? They are doing that already. So what?
President Trump has issued an executive order to overhaul of the asylum system for foreigners seeking to enter the United States as the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border spirals out of control
n a memorandum late Monday, Trump ordered government officials, including Attorney General William Barr and acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan, to propose new regulations to establish new fees for asylum seekers and ban those awaiting hearings from working in the U.S. Trump also gave officials 90 days to propose new regulations so that all asylum applications can be adjudicated within 180 days. Currently, some applications take years.
“It is the policy of the executive branch to manage our humanitarian immigration programs in a safe, orderly manner that provides access to relief or protection from removal from the United States for aliens who qualify, and that promptly denies benefits to and facilitates the removal of those who do not,” Trump wrote in the memo.
Rio Grande Valley Sector Chief Patrol Agent Rodolfo Karisch told a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing this month that border agents have captured people trying to enter the U.S. illegally from more than 50 different countries, including Turkey, China, Bangladesh, Egypt and Romania. Customs and Border Protection agents made more than 100,000 arrests or denials of entry in March, the highest in 12 years. What’s more, there are currently more than 800,000 asylum claims in the works, and all those seeking asylum are allowed to stay in the country.
But very few will win asylum. In 2016, of the more than 400,000 people who were apprehended entering the U.S. illegally, just 20,000 or so were granted asylum — just 5%.
In February, Trump declared a national emergency to address the security and humanitarian crisis at the border. “That emergency continues to grow increasingly severe,” he said in Monday’s memo.
Build the wall/ no amnesty/ no catch and release/Trump 2020
I suspect the President is being restrained by Mitch McConnell and pro-immigration big donors.
Since our own FBI cannot find criminals when they have the resources to do so, what makes anyone believe that they can find illegals siphoning off our Medicare and state social "welfare" benefits? Congressional Demoncrats won't act responsibly, so it is only the executive actions by Trump that can solve "our national crisis". Catch & release doesn't work for our Federal prison system ... so why do we have it when illegals violate our Federal Laws? If they want to enter into our nation ... W A I T in line outside of our borders!!
1. Fix e-Verify so that employers have to use it before, not after, hiring employees. And actually use it to identify the aliens trying to use someone else's SSN and investigate them; it is a federal crime after all. 2. Enforce its use with sanctions against companies that don't use it properly. These steps will consume a lot of LEO resources for a while, but that will settle down after steady state is achieved. 3. Require states (and their subordinate jurisdictions) to use it, too, before granting anyone benefits; if the states refuse, cut off their Federal funds proportionally. 4. Stop letting aliens into the country while they await judicial review. Wait in Mexico. We don't owe them room and board. 5. Spend the resources to chase down aliens who overstay their visas. Another temporary investment in LEO resources until it is under control. Using computer system cross-checks should help flush them out. Look at how skillful the IRS is using their computer cross-checks to find disconnects in your income and taxes. 6. Pass legislation for a 5-year funding of the temporary law enforcement ramp-up of this coordinated effort.
