Acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan told Congress this month that those foreign nationals are eventually given work permits that allow them to take U.S. jobs while awaiting their asylum hearings.
So they show up seeking Asylem and that allows them to get a work permit to legally work in the United States. So what happens when they are notified that it’s time for their hearing?
The results, an ICE official told Congress, were that about 87 percent of illegal aliens, or almost 9-in-10, recently released by DHS into the U.S. did not show up to their asylum hearings.
They are NOT showing up when notified that it’s time to plead their case.
And of the 13% that did show up under the pilot program to their Asylum hearings?
In the same hearing, another federal immigration official said that only about 12 percent of border crossers and illegal aliens who complete their asylum processes actually end up qualifying for asylum — a statistic that underscores the enormous fraud and abuse in the country’s immigration system.
So you do the math (or extrapolation as some of you here like to do) on how many are REALLY here for legit Asylem. 87% not showing up. 12% of those who do show up are legit.
Those that are given work permits. If they fail to show, there should be a way to track the work permits and where they are working (aka taxes being paid) and the Federal Government should send a letter to those companies explaining the work permit has been revoked (no longer valid for legal work), and continued employment is against the law. If taxes still paid after a few months for the worker, the company is then fined for not terminating the now illegal employee. And Business that starts paying income taxes on that work permit, gets the same type letter that the person’s permit has been revoked and they can’t be legally employed. Along with that, any federal assistance programs the person my be enrolled in, terminated immediatly.
