Attorney General Jeff Sessions knows what border law is and he is not shy about enforcing it. As the Hill has written Thursday, Sessions may be held in contempt of court because the Trump administration tried to deport a mother and her daughter both “while an appeal hearing for their deportation was underway.” The judge worried that duo was in danger instead of the law-abiding people of the United States as the wave of illegals swarms like locusts.
A judge appointed by former President Bill Clinton, “U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan granted a request from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)” which allows for “an emergency order to halt the expedited removal of immigrants seeking asylum from domestic abuse and gang violence after” it was learned that the government put the pair on a plane to Central America.
There are a few flaws with punishing Sessions for this. First of all, did the mother and daughter apply for asylum or did they just illegally enter the United States before asking for help? As far as the White House has said, no one who has legally applied for asylum has been arrested. This would suggest that they did not.
Secondly, if someone is from a dangerous ghetto in Texas, are they free just to walk into Mexico like those in southern nations feel that they can do as it relates to the U.S.A.?
“This is pretty outrageous,” opined Sullivan. “That someone seeking justice in U.S. court is spirited away while her attorneys are arguing for justice for her? I’m not happy about this at all. This is not acceptable.”
The ACLU is suing Jeff Sessions due to “his recent decision to stop granting asylum for people who have faced domestic and gang violence.” Again, there is gang violence and domestic abuse happening daily in Chicago. Are those tormented by it allowed to walk into Canada without applying? No, they may not. Most likely, the guilty person would be eating beer nuts and enjoying the red maple leaf in a jail cell if they did.
The judge, who again, was appointed by Liberal President Bill Clinton, put the order out to “turn the plane around.”
“In its rush to deport as many immigrants as possible, the Trump administration is putting these women and children in grave danger of being raped, beaten, or killed,” stated Jennifer Chang Newell, the managing attorney of ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project. Perhaps she feels that way, but that does not answer if asylum was legally applied for or not. If not, Sessions may not have broken the law since the federal/Constitutional law supersedes all others in most cases.
“We are thrilled the stay of removal was issued but sickened that the government deported two of our clients — a mom and her little girl — in the early morning hours. We will not rest until our clients are returned to safety,” the attorney added.
“We’re suing Jeff Sessions for illegally denying asylum protections to immigrants fleeing domestic violence and gang brutality,” the ACLU tweeted. They are angry that 12 people seeking asylum were denied because they “failed their initial ‘credible fear’ interviews.”
“These policies undermine the fundamental human rights of women and violate decades of settled asylum law,” they also said.
So, the ACLU appears to be suggesting that if someone lives in a bad neighborhood, they should be allowed to be U.S. citizens. If so, then why not open the doors to everyone in the world who has a hard life?
While that is ridiculous to even consider, such is apparently expected of the United States under liberal thinking.
