Speeding deportations

Presidents Bush 41 and 43, Clinton, and Obama were clever. They created a backlog of immigration deportation cases by not appointing enough judges to hear the cases.

More than 600,000 illegal aliens are enjoying a de facto two-year visa as it now takes 672 days on average to deport them.

President Trump is ending the free ride.



From LifeZette:
The United States is on the verge of reversing an immigration court backlog that has been building for years, Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified Tuesday.
Immigration hawks long have pointed to the backlog, now about 600,000 cases, as a factor in undermining enforcement. Sessions told the House Judiciary Committee that the backlog has barely grown during the past two to three months as a result of 50 additional immigration judges who have started working since President Donald Trump took office.
Sessions said the Department of Justice has shortened the time for hiring new judges and hopes to bring an additional 360 to 370 on board.
That's more than double the 334 Obama left us with when we finally ended his pathetic presidency.

The mainstream press makes the beneficiaries of this broken system -- illegal aliens -- the victims.

Consider this report from McClatchy:
People who come to the U.S. seeking asylum from persecution are struggling while their cases stall in the backlogged dockets of the nation's immigration courts.
As a result of heightened immigration enforcement in the past several years, the courts have shifted their resources to deal with people in immigration detention facilities. Combined with a shortage in judges, that has meant longer wait times for all types of immigration cases to be resolved.
For asylum seekers, longer waits can mean spending months or years in detention. For those not in custody, the delays can leave them in a state of limbo, allowed to live in the country legally but not to work or access social services while they wait to plead their case in front of a judge.
Sa'youh Tunji, 28, from Cameroon, who now lives in Maryland, spent more than five years waiting for his day in court.
That was in 2010.

This is part of the plan to erase our border. If you are here illegally and are caught, we will wait a couple of years before deporting you because we have a shortage of judges, a shortage created by presidents who want a backlog so they can throw up their hands and say there is nothing we can do but grant amnesty.

President Trump is ending that.

  1. And people wonder what Sessions is doing.

    Call it a guess, but I'll bet Trump hired Sessions for this purpose. "Concentrate on this and leave the politics to me".

    YMMV

  2. I read this morning that the Border Patrol is reinstituting "catch and release" due to an insufficient number of beds available at detention facilities. My question is: Who says we have to release them INSIDE the United States? Why can't we release them back across the border? For that matter, why can't we release them back across the border with a broken leg or some other reminder that crossing our border illegally will bring some bad consequences on them. Perhaps they won't be so quick to attempt another crossing. Another alternative would be to release them beyond the the 3-mile limit or from an airplane above 1,000 feet up. - Elric

  5. I want freedom from persecution.
    The persecution I feel when my land is being overrun by those who shouldn't be here.
    The persecution I feel when my cities become dung heaps.
    The persecution I feel that causes me not to go to the mall.
    The persecution I feel when I see my tax money going to feed, house, and clothe those who shouldn't be here in the first place.
    And not just illegals.
    TPTB need to take some of the money spent on prisons and spend it on residential facilities for those awaiting deportation or hearings. Put the unstable and addicted homeless in those facilities, too, and convert the facilities to mental health facilities as needed.
    Keep the unstable and addicted there for as long as it takes. If they get better "as long as they take their meds" and get out, but then fail to take their meds, they're returned and institutionalized forever, if necessary.
    I realize I babbled on a bit and mixed subjects, but what the hey.

    2. Some great ideas there Dan. I won't hold my breath though, common sense ain't so common these days.

  6. Deporting illegal aliens should be our top priority for the next year, to minimize voter fraud in the mid-terms.

  7. Just as we would immediately evict any uninvited strangers found in our homes, so should we immediately evict any uninvited strangers found in our country, without exception.
