Trump doing his best to discourage bogus asylum requests



Under US law, if someone crosses the border into the US they are entitled to apply for asylum, and then stick around in the US for a long time while they wait to get a court date. That's the customary way many illegal aliens try to game our system to get access to the US. But President Trump is throwing a monkey wrench (not mean to be a racial term!) into their plans by reducing access to asylum for the mass of illegals on our southern border.

A simple two-lane bridge spans the Rio Grande between Ciudad Miguel Aleman, Mexico, and Roma, Texas, sleepy sister cities that have long accommodated a steady flow of traffic back and forth across the border.

Dozens of families from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and Peru, some with babies only a few months old, have spent weeks living on the Mexican side of the bridge, waiting to be admitted to the United States as asylum seekers.

Why are women taking babies who were just born on a long and dangerous trip to America? What was the urgency? That seems like child abuse.

“Every morning we come, we wait in line,” said Marco Estrada, who was a grocery clerk in Honduras. He arrived with his 2-year-old daughter nine days ago, hoping to reach relatives in North Carolina. A gang had threatened him in Honduras, he said.

And Mr. Estrada could not have called the police? Mr. Estrada could not have moved to another part of Honduras? Are the gangs present in every corner of Honduras? And what about Mexico? Why can't Mr. Estrada apply for asylum there?

Those seeking asylum say they presented their documents to U.S. Customs officials on the bridge. But the officials said the families have to wait on the Mexican side because there isn’t enough space for them to be processed.

Ruben Garcia, founder of the El Paso-based advocacy group Annunciation House, said the delays appear to be part of a strategy to block asylum seekers.

“They are using the pretext [that] we have to be judicious in recognition of our resources, our facilities are not set up to accommodate a lot of people, we can only receive them as we have space. They are using that tactic as a way to push people out and deny people asylum,” Garcia said.

I certainly hope so.

“It’s happening through all the border crossings,” he said. “You’ll see the same thing in El Paso, in Nogales, in Laredo, Calexico – it’s a border-wide policy.”

It’s not clear how long families stranded on the bridges can last.

Maybe just long enough to turn around and go home?

Requesting asylum in Mexico wasn’t an option, said those on the bridge: They would have more trouble finding work there, and they feared crime in Mexico as much as in their home countries in Central America.

So they could apply for asylum in Mexico, but just prefer going to America. Does this sound like the desperation of someone fearing for their life? Under US law, the grounds for asylum are:

...people come to the United States seeking protection because they have suffered persecution or fear that they will suffer persecution due to:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Nationality
  • Membership in a particular social group
  • Political opinion

There is no category for people who don't like the crime in their communities. Nor is there a category for people who want a job. All those mothers toting their newly born babies expect the American taxpayer to take care of them. They are flagrantly abusing the asylum system.

Let's hope President Trump puts enough bureaucratic obstacles in their way to discourage more of them from crossing the border. Liberals are also screaming that children are being separated from their parents; Attorney General Sessions says that if parents don't want that to happen, they shouldn't cross the border illegally.

Congress put into place these ridiculous laws which encourage illegals to abuse our asylum system; it is to President Trump's credit that he is attempting to mobilize (or immobilize) the administrative state to make it a less attractive proposition to illegals.

A legal analysis of the gay cake case


The Supreme Court decided 7-2 that cake maker Jack Phillips apparently did not have to make a cake for a homosexual wedding. I say apparently because the court's reasoning was convoluted. Instead of saying outright that custom cake makers don't have an obligation to produce custom made cakes for homosexual weddings, the court simply said that the local human rights commission didn't consider his rights to follow his religious belief when he refused to make a wedding cake for a homosexual couple.

A year and a half into his presidency, President Trump has a number of accomplishments he can honestly refer to. He appointed Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, among other accomplished jurists to federal circurt courts; he has tried to stop the DACA program and increase the apprehension of illegal aliens; he is in the process of rolling back a number of ridiculous environmental regulations; and he has enacted a great corporate tax cut which is bringing cash abroad back to the US.
