Apparently, people with bogus claims won’t be deported, and Sullivan actually ordered that the ones who’ve already been jettisoned somehow be brought back to the United States.
He ruled that the Trump administration’s efforts to speed up these deportations wasn’t what ‘congress intended’ and ordered the government to allow illegal invaders the right to make a full case.
Many people think this sounds like this is the whim of the judicial, not the executive.
The decision wipes out a move by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who blocked the claims of illegals who said they faced gang violence or domestic abuse back home.
Many people argue that gang violence and domestic abuse happen here too.
“Mr. Sessions had argued that while traumatic, those reasons strayed far from the political or religious persecution by governments that traditionally made someone eligible for asylum.”
Judge Sullivan rejected that common sense application of law and claimed Congress intended for people to be able to demand asylum based on membership in a “particular social group.”
Many people question how Sullivan could base his ruling on what he perceives as the intent of congress.
They also wonder how these deported criminals will be somehow brought back to the U.S.
“The attorney general’s direction to deny most domestic violence or gang violence claims at the credible fear determination stage is fundamentally inconsistent with the threshold screening standard that Congress established,” he wrote.
The order appears both biased and ridiculous to many thinking people, especially given Sullivan’s outburst against Michael Flynn the day before. Although there is ample evidence that the FBI illegally entrapped Flynn, Sullivan has appeared to ignore that.
