The judge ruled that Dept. of Homeland Security and Justice Dept. are NOT following their own rules in holding mass deportation hearings…….Individual hearings are the law…Yes…The judge has ruled that the US Government IS breaking it’s own law’s under orders from the nations Justice Dept….
They have resorted to such actions under orders from the Trump White House to do anything to scare people from trying to come to America….
A federal district court judge ruled Monday that the Trump administration must consider on an individual basis whether immigrants who come to the U.S. seeking asylum represent a flight risk or a danger to their community before they can be detained if they’ve proven a credible fear of persecution.
Judge James Boasberg, on the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, issued a preliminary injunction blocking the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) from arbitrarily detaining asylum seekers.
The order stems from a class-action lawsuit the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed on behalf of asylum seekers who have been denied parole even though Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials found they had a credible claim of persecution in their home countries, which is the first step toward gaining asylum status.
The ACLU argued that DHS violated its own parole directive, immigration law and the Constitution in an effort to deter other asylum seekers from coming to the country.
In his ruling, Boasberg said he was ordering DHS to follow a policy the government admitted it was required to follow…..
Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Tuesday rescinded a 2011 Justice Department guidance mandating that asylum seekers and refugees have a “right” to work in the U.S.
The Obama-era document was included on a list of 24 Justice Department guidances that Sessions scrapped because he said they were “unnecessary, outdated, inconsistent with existing law” or imposed without congressional approval.
The 2011 guidance, which was issued by the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-related Unfair Employment Practices, ensured asylum seekers and refugees were “authorized to work indefinitely” and could obtain Social Security cards “without employment restrictions.”
