ICE will begin deporting 1M illegal aliens with court orders to leave the US

I’ve followed the career of Ken Cuccinelli, 50, a genuine conservative who was the attorney general of the state of Virginia (2010-2014) and before that, a Virginia state senator (2002-2010). In 2013, he lost the Virginia gubernatorial election to Clinton-crony Demonrat Terry McAuliffe, by just 2.5% (56,435 votes).

In 2016, in an effort to get Hillary Clinton elected president, Gov. McAuliffe restored voting and other civil rights to thousands of convicted felons, which enabled pedophile and white supremacist Nathan Larson to run for Congress as an Independent. Larson campaigned on a platform that advocated the legalization of child porn and incest.

But I had not known that a month ago, President Trump appointed Cuccinelli as acting Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), an agency of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that administers the United States’ naturalization and immigration system. USCIS is a successor to the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), which was dissolved in 2002 and replaced by three components within the DHS: USCIS, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and Customs and Border Protection (CBP).

Tim Pearce reports for the Washington Examiner that on July 7, 2019, Acting United States Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Ken Cuccinelli said about 1 million “illegal immigrants” have already received court orders to leave the country, and that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers, who are already hundreds of thousands of deportations behind schedule, will begin deporting them later this week.

Cuccinelli appeared on CBS Face the Nation to defend the ICE deportations, which the outlaw-enabling and post-birth abortion Left criticize as inhumane raids against immigrant families.

Cuccinelli said ICE is obligated “to go and find, detain, and then deport the approximately 1 million people who have final removal orders. [These migrants] have been all the way through the due process and have final removal order. The pool of those with final removal orders is enormous. [ICE officers] have been interfered with, effectively, and held up by the politics of Washington to a certain extent. They’re looking forward to just getting back to doing their job.”

Cuccinelli said ICE will deport illegal immigrants with court orders on a rolling basis, beginning with a few thousand.

Meanwhile, Paul Bedard reports for the Washington Examiner that President Trump plans to have named 150 federal judges by the end of this year, boosting the total number of federal judges to some 250 in Trump’s first presidential term.

Since the United States has a total of 870 federal judges in the Supreme Court, district courts, courts of appeals, and the U.S. Court of International Trade, this means President Trump is on a pace to fill 30% of America’s federal judges, which will be “a historic legacy” in the conservative movement to restore America.

President Trump bars those entering U.S. illegally from seeking asylum

The New York Times reports that yesterday, invoking national security powers to protect the United States against threats from abroad, the Trump administration announced new immigration rules giving the President new authority to deny asylum to “migrants” who illegally cross the border.

Breitbart reports that the new policy covers the “migrants” in the three caravans that are moving northwards, and all other migrants who cross the border illegally.

Officials indicated that President Trump will issue a proclamation today, and that the new rules will overhaul longstanding asylum laws. Once Trump makes a proclamation identifying who is barred, the new rule would be immediately applied. Officials said “migrants” could apply for two other smaller programs that are much less likely to allow them to stay.

The denial of political asylum to those entering the U.S. illegally is sure to be challenged in court. Omar Jadwat, the director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, said:

“The law is clear: people can apply for asylum whether or not they’re at a port of entry, and regardless of their immigration status. The president doesn’t get to ignore that law, even if he dislikes it.”

This is what the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) website says about asylum and refugee status:

Refugee status or asylum may be granted to people who have been persecuted or fear they will be persecuted on account of race, religion, nationality, and/or membership in a particular social group or political opinion.

Refugees

Refugee status is a form of protection that may be granted to people who meet the definition of refugee and who are of special humanitarian concern to the United States. Refugees are generally people outside of their country who are unable or unwilling to return home because they fear serious harm. For a legal definition of refugee, see section 101(a)(42) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).

You may seek a referral for refugee status only from outside of the United States. For more information about refugees, see the Refugees section.

Asylum

Asylum status is a form of protection available to people who:

  • Meet the definition of refugee
  • Are already in the United States
  • Are seeking admission at a port of entry

USCIS’s webpage on “Asylum” says:

Every year people come to the United States seeking protection because they have suffered persecution or fear that they will suffer persecution due to:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Nationality
  • Membership in a particular social group
  • Political opinion

If you are eligible for asylum you may be permitted to remain in the United States. To apply for Asylum, file a Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal, within one year of your arrival to the United States. There is no fee to apply for asylum.

You may include your spouse and children who are in the United States on your application at the time you file or at any time until a final decision is made on your case. To include your child on your application, the child must be under 21 and unmarried. For more information see our Form I-589, Application for Asylum and for Withholding of Removal page.

What ACLU lawyer Jadwat does not address is that President Trump is invoking national security as the justification for barring illegal border-crossers from seeking political asylum.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen M. Nielsen and Acting Attorney General Matthew G. Whitaker said in a statement yesterday:

Consistent with our immigration laws, the President has the broad authority to suspend or restrict the entry of aliens into the United States if he determines it to be in the national interest to do so. Today’s rule applies this important principle to aliens who violate such a suspension or restriction regarding the southern border imposed by the President by invoking an express authority provided by Congress to restrict eligibility for asylum. Our asylum system is overwhelmed with too many meritless asylum claims from aliens who place a tremendous burden on our resources, preventing us from being able to expeditiously grant asylum to those who truly deserve it.

Today, we are using the authority granted to us by Congress to bar aliens who violate a Presidential suspension of entry or other restriction from asylum eligibility.

According to new Department of Homeland Security (DHS) data, less than 10% of the migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border from Central America have legitimate asylum claims. (Breitbart)

The thousands of “caravan migrants” relentlessly marching/bussing/trucking to America’s southern border have proven themselves to be violent and determined to crash national borders. The “caravan migrants” are invaders and a clear and present threat to U.S. national security. See:
