Donald Trump and his trusted asst. Stephen Miller LOSE ANOTHER one….
America has always been a home for those politically oppressed from the time the place was born ….
Federal judges are NOT gonna let these two stop that history or policy…..
Instead of trying to stop things?
The government should be working to process applicants so that they don’t go into modern day warehouse detention camps….
To be clear?
The judge pointed out that the Trump admin was ILLEGALLY changing policy….and ordered the Govt. to seek to return those deported under the Trump policy…..(I doubt THAT will happen )
Judge Emmet Sullivan, of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, said the policies, which created a stricter test to satisfy the “credible fear” standard for asylum claims, were unlawful.
He also ordered the government to return to the United States the plaintiffs who were unlawfully deported under the policy.
The policy changes came in an immigration case in which Sessions reversed a grant of asylum for a Salvadoran woman who claimed to have fled years of abuse by her then-husband. In that case, Sessions said victims of domestic violence or gang violence perpetrated by nongovernmental actors generally will not qualify for asylum.
In a policy memo two days after the ruling, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said victims of domestic and gang violence have to show that the government of their home nation was “unwilling or unable to control” the harm and either “condoned the behavior or demonstrated a complete helplessness to protect the victim.”
Sullivan, a Clinton appointee, said Sessions’s ruling created an arbitrary and capricious general rule. He said “there is no legal basis for an effective categorical ban on domestic violence and gang-related claims.”
He also found that the rule violated federal immigration law, which requires credible fear claim determinations to be made on an individual basis. If an immigrant is found to have a credible fear, they are removed from expedited removal proceedings to pursue their asylum claims in immigration court….
