It turns out you can’t just change asylum law without actually passing legislation…
Lemme guess where the judge is from? Ummmmmmmm…California? Bingo!
The administration can always appeal…
If the president does it its not illegal.
who knew that the executive branch doesnt make settled immigration law.
I thought the president would win this case for sure.
so much #winning.
Trump to call him a “so - called judge” in 5 … 4 … 3 … 2 … 1…
Congress makes asylum laws.
its plainly clear to all but Trump and his supporters.
What’s hard to believe is that the probability of me guessing where the judge was from was 1 in 50?
How did I guess it right?
Someone told Trump that. Here is his response…
Maybe Trump should issue a proclamation removing all California federal judges
If you were in charge, would that be “mob-rule”?
Have any thoughts on the actual legal controversy? Here is the wording in the actual statute…
Any alien who is physically present in the United States or who arrives in the United States (whether or not at a designated port of arrival and including an alien who is brought to the United States after having been interdicted in international or United States waters), irrespective of such alien’s status, may apply for asylum in accordance with this section or, where applicable, section 1225(b) of this title
Do you think this leaves it up to the president to determine who is eligible based on how they entered the US?
Nope. It’s up to the President to insure they are NEVER physically present in the US illegally.
This is why President Trump needs to keep our military on the border and instruct them to physically prevent these invaders from setting foot on American soil.
President Trump, by the terms of our Constitution, is empowered “To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”.
So blatantly violate the law?
It’s illegal IYO to protect our border?
Violate the law? President Trump, by the terms of our Constitution, is empowered “To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions”.
500,000 Mexicans cross the border legally every year.
How do you tell the illegal, who will overstay their visa from the legal, who will not.
Yeah, fortunately the military commanders know that they are prohibited by law…
Good luck in court… Track record not looking good so far…
