nearvideo judge blocks asylum-ban for migrants who illegally introduced

Obama appointed Federal judge rules against President Trump the prohibition on the granting of asylum for immigrants, the border illegally; Garrett Tenney reports from the White house.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen announced Thursday that the United States, the immigrants are calling for an agreement with Mexico secured in such a way that the asylum will be back to Mexico, as their cases — will be edited in a bid to end the practice known as “catch-and-release.”

Nielsen made the announcement Thursday at a House Judiciary Committee hearing, told the Committee that claims the goal is to crack down on migrants falsely asylum, only to be released in the United States and escape the radar of immigration officials.

“But by the time the courts issued their orders, the majority of these illegal aliens in our country,” she said. “They escaped, the law undermined the system and made it more difficult for us to actually help real asylum seekers, by flooding the system with false allegations.”


Nielsen said the goal is “‘to catch’ catch & release’ but ‘, and to imprison” or under our new protocols, ‘catch and stay in Mexico.'”

To combat this, she said of those who would receive back in the United States illegally or without proper documentation, Mexico is regarded as your case.

“You will not be able to disappear-in the United States,” she said. “You have to wait for the approval, in the United States. If you are granted asylum, which will be of a US judge, they are welcome in America. If you are not, you will be removed to their own countries.”

She said that the Mexican government has committed, migrants have humanitarian visas to stay and work in Mexico, as they wait for a decision from the United States migrants ‘ access to lawyers and to the U. S for court hearings. She said all measures were in accordance with international law.

“We take be lawful to stop unilateral action on illegal immigration now,” she said. “Mexico is react in their own appropriate measures. And our two countries have committed to large-scale regional plan for a solution to the crisis.”



Democrats fumed over the announcement, however. Nielsen had to say a heated back-and-forth with the ranking Democratic Republic of the Jerry Nadler, D-NY, accused Nielsen, that the legitimate asylum seekers would be detained for years.

“A policy that says, very aware that everyone should spend moderately worthy of political asylum seems to years to be in custody in gross violation of international law and the laws of the United States,” he said.

“I understand sir, but this is not to say what I said,” Nielsen.

DHS says it has seen a 2,000-percent increase in migrants to demand a “credible fear” — the first step in the asylum, and that asylum applications in the past year, 67 percent compared to the previous year.

President Trump has been a continuous critic of the “catch-and-release” practice, with the expression both of his anger and disbelief at the way illegal immigrants are in the US, just not for a court process can take years.

In November, Trump tweeted that he intended to make, enforce policy, where only those you give to be admitted to the country legally.

“Other than that our policy is to Catch and Imprison. No ‘sharing’ in the United States is All of the stay in Mexico,” he tweeted, before warning that he is “close” to the border, if need be.


Trump has fought for the securing of the southern border, along with a tough stance on illegal immigration a cornerstone of his 2016 campaign-but, at times, to realize that the agenda of a combination of difficult congressional mathematics and a series of defeats in court.

Such a judicial setback came Wednesday when a Federal judge ordered that asylum seekers who sued to have their deportation back to the US to hear their claims.

“The court holds, to hear the jurisdiction, the plaintiff challenges, for which there is credible fear policies that it wrote the power to order the injunction, and that, with the exception of two measures, the new credible fear policy are arbitrarily and in violation of the immigration laws,” judge Emmet Sullivan.

Meanwhile, a judge in San Francisco has extended its decision to block the administration from enforcing a ban on asylum for all immigrants who illegally cross the U.S.-Mexico border.
