DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and AAG Matthew Whitaker Issue New Asylum Rule Ahead of Advancing Mass Central American Migration…

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker issued a new asylum rule today as officials at the U.S. southern border and U.S. military prepare to confront an approaching horde of approximately 20,000 Central American migrant/invaders.

[U.S. Department of Justice] Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen today announced an Interim Final Rule declaring that those aliens who contravene a presidential suspension or limitation on entry into the United States through the southern border with Mexico issued under section 212(f) or 215(a)(1) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) will be rendered ineligible for asylum.

The Acting Attorney General and the Secretary issued the following joint statement:

“Consistent with our immigration laws, the President has the broad authority to suspend or restrict the entry of aliens into the United States if he determines it to be in the national interest to do so. Today’s rule applies this important principle to aliens who violate such a suspension or restriction regarding the southern border imposed by the President by invoking an express authority provided by Congress to restrict eligibility for asylum.  Our asylum system is overwhelmed with too many meritless asylum claims from aliens who place a tremendous burden on our resources, preventing us from being able to expeditiously grant asylum to those who truly deserve it.  Today, we are using the authority granted to us by Congress to bar aliens who violate a Presidential suspension of entry or other restriction from asylum eligibility.”

Section 212(f) of the Immigration and INA states that “[w]henever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

Further, Section 215(a) of the INA states that it is “unlawful…for any alien to depart from or enter or attempt to depart from or enter the United States except under such reasonable rules, regulations, and orders, and subject to such limitations and exceptions as the President may prescribe.”

In Section 208(d)(5)(B) of the INA, Congress specified that the Attorney General “may provide by regulation for any other conditions or limitations on the consideration of an application for asylum.”

Today’s new rule applies to prospective presidential proclamations, and is not retroactive.

Asylum is a discretionary form of relief granted by the Executive Branch on a discretionary basis to those fleeing persecution on the basis of their race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion.  The rule does not render such aliens ineligible for withholding of removal under the INA or protection from removal under the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment.

The Interim Final Rule can be found here.

            It is now time not to legitimize the mob rule. If they squeal they should be confronted not appeased. This has gone too far without resistance. It is up to each person to affirm a commitment to not be intimidated, not appease, but rather to confront, expose and thwart the projection of fascist confrontation by these mixture of anarchists. I’ve set my rules of engagement many years ago. Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me. So say what you want, touch me and you will learn what many years of training prepared me for.

            _______________

            They don’t need an excuse to think that way, just a phone call from Soros and a check will do it.

            They invalidated (in their wicked, evil eyes) the election of the president of the United States.

            Invalidating SCOTUS decisions (in their evil, wicked, treasonous eyes) is nothing to them.

            I don’t blame them though. They are the enemy. If Traitor 44 was still president, or the criminal Hillary Clinton, and SCOTUS was stacked with more traitors, I wouldn’t accept any of SCOTUS’ treasonous rulings either.

            And neither should anyone else.

            What is so frustrating is that this DIVIDE, this CIVIL WAR that is going on, is NOT organic in any way. It is not a SPLIT among We the People over ANY significant issue.

            It is ONE HUNDRED PERCENT driven by globalist money, buying anarchy and violence.

          Even though you may have seen this, I would like to share some thing Andrew McCarthy wrote at the National Review:
          “Matthew Whitaker joined the Trump Justice Department as Sessions’s chief of staff in October 2017. The date is relevant. The president has named him as acting attorney general under the Vacancies Reform Act of 1998 (the relevant provisions are codified at Sections 3345 and 3346 of Title 5, U.S. Code). There has been some commentary suggesting that because Whitaker was in a job (chief of staff) that did not require Senate confirmation, he could not become the “acting officer” in a position (AG) that calls for Senate confirmation. Not so. The Vacancies Act enables the president to name an acting officer, who may serve as such for 210 days, as long as the person named has been working at the agency or department for at least 90 days in a fairly high-ranking position. Whitaker qualifies.”

    • Rachel Guess says:

      It is a mistake to not make it retroactive because it will mean that any of them that are able to sneak across the border will claim that they were already in the country before the order was issued and therefore it does not apply to them.

      A second issue is that there is apparently no deterrent for sneaking across the border currently. If it were set up so that anyone caught sneaking across the border is fingerprinted and then banned from applying for any legal status for a period of five years, the attempts to cross the border illegally would be greatly minimized.

        I believe that basically that is done. They are fingerprinted under catch and release. But they can now apply for asylum, thus the trigger to catch and release until their case is adjudicated — and they never show up for the trial.

        Now they’ll just be automatically ineligible to make the claim, fingerprinted, put on record as misdemeanor violators, and dumped back across the border. No more need for catch and release.

          Finger printing is good but eye scans are way better. The latest surveillance cameras can identify people and send an alert to a control center. This way, if any of these vermin manages to reenter the USA, they will be caught at airports, in banks, at the welfare office and even on the street. No need for messy ink, simply point a camera at them.

            Actually the kindest thing to do would be to blow some of them away. Less than 100 would die in the course of a year — FAR fewer than die now in the same time period due to the perils of transit and the dangerous conditions (sex and drug trades, trafficking …) once they arrive.

            Why so few? Because they’re not stupid. When it no longer worked and might get you dead, they’d stop coming.

            But we’re going to continue to coddle them, treat them like children rather than adults capable of making a rational decision so much higher numbers will die. But — CNN won’t have video of those deaths.

  16. Posting this here as well, as the importance cannot be understated:

    The next 6 months will tell whether Trump has the balls required to do what must be done.

    He has the executive power and the legal and appropriations backing necessary to use the Army Corps of Engineers to build the wall under the pretext of national emergency. (The relevant clauses for shunting Defense funding were quietly inserted into the omnibus)

    He has control over the DOJ, DHS, and National Guard and every pretext he needs to shut down the Democrat Party’s political violence, possibly taking down prominent membership in the process.

    Regardless of the flagrant theft of elections in these outstanding states, he has enough buffer in the Senate to prevent removal from office no matter what the house does.

    He has a 5/4 supreme court which has now been whittled by act of God to 5/3, and constitutional scholars urging him to issue executive order on the outstanding Anchor Baby issue.

    It’s time for him to move on these 3 things.

    The next 6 months will show whether he’s savvy, or whether he’s either incompetent or in on the kabuki act.

        Under the “Total Force” concept, National Guard units are considered to be Reserve Components of the United States Army.

        National Guard troops are more likely to be called by the state when the state’s interests are at stake (such as natural disasters, defense against invasion of that state, search & rescue, etc.). The federal government also has the ability to call the National Guard into service. Typically whoever calls the Guard first, gets control of the Guard (i.e. U.S. President vs. State Governor).

        These forces are under the jurisdiction of the State Governor unless they are federalized by order of the President of the United States.

        National Guard troops, when under the command of the State Governor, can be used as law enforcement in that state or adjacent state (if welcomed by that state). The Posse Comitatus Act only applies if the troops are federalized.”

          Please be aware that the Posse Comitatus Act is for “domestic law enforcement” (riots, insurrections, other forms of large scale violence, etc. inside the U.S.).

          Illegal aliens pouring over the border fence is **NOT** a case of “domestic law enforcement.” (A lot of leftwing opinion blatherers tried to conflate it to concoct a reason why the military couldn’t stop the illegals).

          Agree, dutzie. We can no longer abide this violence in the hopes people will not vote for the mobs’ silent and not so silent enablers (DNC, Dem politicians, Soros, the usual suspects, etc.) I hope with this AAG that Trump takes direct and devastating aim at enforcing law and order the next two years: yes, trade deals and the economy are hugely important, but when there’s fire inside the house it has to be dealt with early post haste. I know Trump and his administration can walk and chew gum at the same time; I just hope he can get top notch leaders/pitbulls at the DoJ, FBI and DHS. We already have them with ICE, but they can’t do it alone.

    re: AAG Whitaker, if Andrew McCarthy is correct, and I assume he is, as he tends to be about points of US law, Whitaker’s Vacancy Appointment makes him ineligible to be nominated to AG. IF correct, a new AAG would have to be named, thus freeing Whitaker to be nominated. Could be an “audition” as many have pointed out. THIS (on topic) is an excellent start. It’s worth reading McCarthy’s piece at National Review, if you haven’t.

    Jeez, I sure hope the Dems sink themselves come 2020, and rationality will come in the form of a Red Wave. They’ll certainly bring the circus in the meantime.

    At the outset, I doubt the dems will imediately take action on things that will throttle GDP growth and employment increases.

    But, I bet they are going to put the peddle to the metal on the open borders and the lawsuit front where POTUS is concerned.

    I bet we see the dems preaching high and mighty about respect for the institution of the HOR. and its’ constitutional responsibility and powers, when it didn’t mean a lick of spit to them during the Obama term.

    It’s amazing how the election of PDJT has shown anyone paying attention, America has been weakened from within by the Uniparty and Globalism.

    From what I’ve read, the Democrats needed 23 House seats to capture the house.

    And, was it 23 Republican house resignations?

    On average, evidently the average loss in House seats among both parties in mid-term elections, since I believe 1914 is 30, there’s another coincidence.

Never mind that these votes come from heavy African american areas where the voters were just interested in voting for gollum for governor.
