Sigh. More legislation from the judicial branch thanks to an activist appointed Obama judge in California. Who needs to take over the House and Senate when you can just control the laws with judges? Via Fox News:
A federal judge in San Francisco on Monday barred the Trump administration from refusing asylum to immigrants who cross the southern border illegally, likely prompting a legal challenge from the White House.
Trump issued a proclamation on Nov. 9 that said anyone who crossed the southern border would be ineligible for asylum.
U.S. District Judge Jon S. Tigar, who was nominated by President Obama in 2012 to the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, issued a temporary restraining order after hearing arguments in San Francisco.
The request was made by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Constitutional Rights, which quickly sued after President Trump issued the ban this month in response to the caravans of migrants that have started to arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border.
And further down:
U.S. border inspectors are processing only about 100 asylum claims a day at Tijuana’s main crossing to San Diego. Asylum seekers register their names in a tattered notebook managed by migrants themselves that had more than 3,000 names even before the caravan arrived.
Homeland Security officials say there are currently 6,000 people in Tijuana waiting to be processed at the San Ysidro border crossing, with more on the way.
During a conference call with reporters Monday afternoon, homeland security officials said “most of the caravan members are not women and children” and that more than 500 criminals are traveling with the group that has amassed on the other side of a San Diego border crossing.
This is a really terrific system we have set up, where the President cannot do anything to protect the border. Obama has infested the court system with activist judges who will do their ideological bidding at a moment’s notice. Just have a NGO or Soros type get some group to file some kind of suit in the district of your choosing and there you have it. So while this is sorted out hundreds of literal criminals will be able to seek asylum. Keep in mind if these people were truly seeking asylum they would’ve sought it in the first country outside of their affected country, in which case this would’ve been Mexico, which was offered to them and they refused. Now they are just shopping for better real estate. Beggars can be choosers, at least here.
The gig is transparent and simple; try to sneak in, if you get caught, claim asylum. And why not? When you have a system where the President cannot defend the border, and will be called racist despite the fact that even Mexicans think it’s an invasion too, what do you have to lose?
This is a disgusting misuse of the judicial branch of our government. These judges were put in place to legislate by a duplicitous president and we are seeing the detrimental effects today. For all those who say they deserve a chance at a better life, ask yourself why they don’t come through the proper channels then, and why when they don’t even bother respecting our laws should we bend over backwards to accommodate them? Do you think kowtowing to them this way will transform their thinking and they’ll magically respect us? Or might that not encourage them to continue their bad behavior when we’re going to allow it anyway? No, none of that matters. As always, these people prioritize the lives of non-Americans over those they were tasked to work for. Expect more tragedies for American children and more of a strain on our economy.
