GOP lawmakers draft bill targeting undocumented immigrants
Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe, would require the writing of legislation that illegal immigrants go home immediately, if you get caught
BROWNSVILLE, Texas – Oklahoma’s senior senator says he has a new way to the end of the controversial practice of “catch and release” at the border.
Instead of the share of illegal immigrants as soon as they are caught trying to enter the country and hope that you will show up to immigration court – Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., send beat you back into your home. So, he said, illegal immigrants are not “included” in the USA, after you show up in court.
A large number of illegal immigrants who are caught, then you will not be released, to show up in immigration court, he said. You will remain at the end, in the County illegally, he said.
After a tour with the border agents in Brownsville, Texas, on Monday, Inhofe said he planned to take a legislative initiative in the next three weeks, which would allow to send immigration agents, those illegally crossing the border back home.
There are a total of 136,201 fears since October along the southwest border with Mexico have been.
“This merely says that, if you are trapped in the country, send you back to your country, while you wait for the appointment to the court,” he said.
President Trump under an executive order signed last year to end “catch-and-release,” if illegal immigrants are imprisoned and let go in the U.S. But his plan, the immigrants are detained until their court ended process, was thwarted by a year-long backlog in the immigration court and the lack of beds in prisons.
But Inhofe said, “catch and release”, because of the bed shortage.
“The reason why 70 percent of [undocumented immigrants] don’t make your date with the court, because the Federal government does not] make you stay in your country,” he said. “And, obviously, if I was I would be in the position somewhere else.”
A report published last year by the Center for Immigration Studies, said some 46,000 illegal immigrants per year, which is not appear to be detained after illegally crossing the border to the court and “disappear” in the County.
A report published last year by the Center for Immigration Studies, said some 46,000 illegal immigrants per year, trying to get caught cross the borer to appear in court and “disappear” in the County.
“Deportation for non-appearance are the largest group of orders, which is said by the immigration courts outside the prisons,” the report, written by Mark Metcalf, a former immigration judge in Miami.
Inhofe’s office does not comment on the details of his proposal, namely, the legislation is still in the design phase.
But his proposal has come under fire from immigration groups, who call it inhumane and logistically impossible.
Aida Montanaro-Flores, an immigration attorney in Brownsville, said it would be a financial burden to send the immigrants back to their country, and then you need to take a trip back for a court hearing.
“You must not permit a trip? The government is the cost of your trip, to come back to the Land and their court visit dates?” Montanaro-Flores asked. “What guarantees do we have that you may be coming back to for your date in court?”
Other immigration groups said the idea was ridiculous.
“Are we really this low bent? This proposal is absurd, not to mention illogical and cruel – a waste of resources,” said Kica Matos, Director of the Washington, DC-based Immigrant and Racial justice at the center for community Change. “The Republicans need to focus on, communities would be safer to tear apart rather than continue to have families.”
