Trump’s New Restrictions on Asylum Seekers that Requires Them to Wait in Line Is Challenged by ACLU and SPLC

Last week, in an effort to stop the flood of migrants seeking economic benefit, President Trump signed an order to halt asylum claims made by people who illegally cross the US border with Mexico.  In the past fiscal year, 140,000 migrants from Central and South America have entered the US illegally!  Trump’s new rule requires migrants to make asylum claims at official points of entry where “they would be processed in a controlled, orderly, and lawful manner.”   The migrants will be funneled into the crowded entry points, with the hope that the long waits will discourage them, and they will apply for asylum in Mexico instead.  Mark Krikorian from the Center for Immigration Studies says that migrants who are unable to get the asylum hearing that they seek, will likely be processed and released into the US, which is their goal.

As expected, Trump’s order has been challenged.  The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) is violating immigration law as well as the federal statute that governs the way administrative agencies can issue rules.

Trump has ordered thousands of additional troops to the US-Mexico border to offer support for border patrol agents in addition to more national guard troops who were dispatched to the border earlier in the year.

If standing in line is a violation of rights, where is the ACLU and SPLC on the DMV? If you call the IRS they put you on hold for an hour before picking up your call. The man-hours wasted by government agencies is beyond calculation. So the ACLU and SPLC only cares about the wasted time of foreigners?

AMERICAN Civil Liberties Union – Center for CONSTITUTIONAL Rights – Their names say it all. American applies to Americans, constitutional applies to American citizens. Those seeking entrance are neither American or possess Constitutional rights. Taxpayer funded organizations? Cut off the funding. As for the Southern Poverty Law Center, it would be advisable that they familiarize themselves with the law before suing under American law on behalf of individuals not living under, thereby not entitled, to the benefits under that law.
