President Donald Trump seems to have convinced Mexico to keep all asylum seekers as their applications are being considered here in the U.S.

This is something that the left said Trump could not accomplish. Looks like Trump has won through the art of the deal once again.

Indeed, for a while even the Mexicans said that they simply would not allow those seeking asylum here to stay in Mexico while their paperwork was being processed in the U.S.

According to the Associated Press:

The U.S. and Mexican governments called it a unilateral move by the Trump administration, but the announcement came two days after the U.S. pledged $10.6 billion in aid for Central America and southern Mexico to make people feel less compelled to leave. Critics, including some legal experts, said migrants would be unsafe in some Mexican border towns and said the U.S. was illegally abandoning its humanitarian role, hinting at a legal challenge against a backdrop of previous courtroom setbacks for Trump on immigration.

The government of Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who took office Dec. 1, said foreigners will have temporary permission to remain in Mexico on humanitarian grounds after getting a notice to appear in U.S. immigration court and they will be allowed to seek work authorization.

The Department of Homeland Security praised the move:

“They will not be able to disappear into the United States,” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told the House Judiciary Committee. “They will have to wait for approval. If they are granted asylum by a U.S. judge, they will be welcomed into America. If they are not, they will be removed to their home countries.”

Nielsen said in a statement that the move “will also allow us to focus more attention on those who are actually fleeing persecution.”

Of course, the fact is, most of those seeking asylum are filing bogus claims.

According to a recent report, fully 91 percent of the asylum claims being made by these “migrant caravaners” are fake.

A new report finds that almost all the “asylum” claims by members of the so-called “migrant caravan”are bogus.

According to numbers from the Department of Homeland Security, only a tiny 9 percent of the asylum claims filed by members of the migrant caravan are legitimate. Fully 91 percent are false.

According to Townhall:

“The low statutory requirements and legal loopholes in our laws encourage aliens to claim credible fear at our Southern border knowing they will be promptly released into the interior with work permits pending the determination of their full claim. In recent years, data shows that more than 65 percent of asylum seekers at our border are from Central America – of those 89 percent pass their initial credible-fear interview,” DHS spokesperson Katie Waldman released Thursday afternoon. “Yet, the harsh reality is that 31 percent of aliens who pass that initial interview do not even show up for their hearing, while a staggering 40 percent of aliens who pass their initial interview do not even file an application.”

DHS goes on to add…

“Ultimately, only 9 percent of Northern Triangle petitioners are found eligible for asylum by a judge – leaving 91 percent ineligible for asylum,” she continued. “The fact that only 9 percent of those who initially claim asylum are found eligible, indicates that we are expending most of our limited resources – detention space, court space and the time of our asylum officers and immigration judges – denying frivolous or illegitimate claims of asylum from the 9 out of 10 who are found ineligible.”

Current federal law requires illegal aliens traveling with their children form certain countries in Central America should be released into the U.S. after a 20-day detention while the government considers their asylum claims.

“Where are those 91 percent today? While some are properly removed from the U.S. by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), many of those who are released on a promise to appear in court disappear into the country’s interior to live and work illegally. In FY17, only 1 percent of the 226,119 removals conducted by ICE were on Alternatives to Detention,” the DHS spokesperson said.

So, in the end Trump and the U.S.A. win, at least on this one issue.

Black Lives Matter Activists And Pro-Cop Group Get In Confrontation In Brooklyn

Published

on

Pro-police activists clashed with Black Lives Matter protesters over the weekend in Bay Bridge Brooklyn, which happens to be an area where a lot of law enforcement officers tend to live. Videos of the incident were plastered all over social media over Saturday and Sunday, which featured a number of brawls exploding between the “Back the Blue” group and BLM activists on Fourth Avenue and 65th Street. Things got so heated that police were required to put a stop to things. Five individuals were arrested. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: “Massive police presence in Bay Ridge. Bike police shove the crowd, but the protesters do not disperse,” tweeted NYC Protest Updates 2020 (@protest_nyc). One video features an officer being hit with an egg, and other videos show protesters blocking a police vehicle with an arrested BLM protester inside from moving through a crowd. However, the fracas escalated when one BLM protester’s confrontation with an NYPD officer ended with the protester being tased, handcuffed, and arrested. “The NYPD no longer enforces the law. Cops are NOT allowed to make these arrest because Mayor DeBlasio prohibits arrest & encourages attacks, calling it peaceful protests he lies. When NYPD retreats the violence will come to YOU the people. BEWARE you’ve been WARNED!,” Ed Mullins, President of the Sergeants Benevolent Association, tweeted Sunday. New York City Councilman Justin Brannan who is a representative for the area spoke out against the violence on Twitter. He also announced he’ll meet with the NYPD at the 60th precinct to talk about the constant protests and the NYPD response. Things are getting so out of hand all across our great nation. People are so divided and full of hatred for one another. All of this is the result of propaganda pushed by the progressive movement who would…

Criminal Investigation Launched Into DA Who Charged Officers In Rayshard Brooks Shooting Expands

Published

on

The criminal investigation into Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard, the man who is responsible for charging police officers involved in the shooting of Rayshard Brooks, is being expanded by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, as new questions come to light concerning the grand jury subpoenas his office issued in the Brooks case. Chris Carr, Georgia Attorney General, asked the GBI to look further into Howard after Carr discovered information about the subpoenas. Here’s what we know so far via The Daily Wire: Howard issued grand jury subpoenas directing the Atlanta Police Department to turn over its “open investigation regarding Garrett Rolfe and the use of force incident.” Fox 5 Atlanta reports: The subpoena required that the documents be turned over for the “Grand Jury, June/July term on the of 14th day of July.” Other grand jury subpoenas were issued for phone and surveillance camera videos. Fox 5 reported that the subpoenas were issued while the grand jury was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. The issuing of grand jury subpoenas while there is no grand jury could possibly be considered “an ethical or possibly criminal issue,” according to legal professionals interviewed by Fox 5. Gable Cino, a law professor who specializes in prosecutorial misconduct, spoke with the news network, saying, “It would be a violation of criminal law to make a knowingly false statement or misrepresentation in the subpoena which is a document that has been issued.” Howard is no stranger to controversy and possible corruption. The GBI had already launched an investigation into the district attorney earlier this year concerning a “mysterious salary supplement negotiated between Howard and then Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.” The negotiation directed a whopping $250,000 over a three-year period into a non-profit organization that was headed up by Howard’s office. Of that cash, Howard…
