A DHS pilot program tracked family units of asylum seekers and found a shocking fact…90% didn’t show up for their asylum hearing.
Why should they? They’re in the U.S. and can just fade into the local community without going back for their hearing. Word has gotten out that you can come to our open border and get in with no problem. Even better, America is known to give really great freebies, so that’s an attraction. The bottom line is that America has become a global magnet for all comers who want to cross our wide open border and get those freebies thanks to the American taxpayers.
Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee to Senator Lindsey Graham that, “Out of those 7,000 cases, 90 received final orders of removal in absentia, 90 percent.”
McAleenan said that DHS is having a very difficult time deterring illegal immigration because the U.S. laws allow asylum-seekers to stay in the U.S. for months or even years waiting for a hearing that most skip.
According to National Review, McAleenan told Senator Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.), referring to the results of a recent DHS pilot program that tracks family units applying for asylum.
“90 percent did not show up?” Graham asked.
“Correct. That is a recent sample from families crossing the border,” McAleenan replied.
McAleenan called the literal invasion at our southern border a “full-blown emergency.”
It’s why we now have hundreds of Africans coming to game our asylum system:
A group of hundreds of African, yes, African migrants are beating down the door to get into the U.S. to claim asylum just like everyone else in the world. They want to “game the system” just like every other third world migrant coming to our border. Why not?
According to Breitbart News’ Bob Price, they gathered on the south side of the Laredo Port of Entry to protest U.S. immigration policies that are keeping them from entering the U.S. to claim asylum. The word is out that if you claim asylum, you’re in! It’s why we have a literal invasion going on right now at our southern border. People from all over the planet want to get into the U.S. Who can blame them? It’s just that we cannot take every third-world asylum seeker who comes knocking at our door.
We still have the Diversity Visa Lottery that magically accepts 50,000 foreigners out of the one million who apply. We have the H1-B visas given out like candy, and we have the Refugee Resettlement Program that has become a scam just like our immigration policy. If you claim “credible fear,” you’re in and will be let loose into America. The asylum seekers know that America is very generous with the freebies, so that is another draw for the third world asylum seekers and refugees.
KGNS reported that the group claims that “not enough is being done” to help them get asylum into the U.S.
The large group of African men, women, and children held their ground near a Mexican customs office. Mexican officials eventually spoke with the group to explain the situation. Some of the migrants held a private meeting with Mexican customs officers. The group claims they are unable to meet with U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials. They claim that Cuban migrants are being given preferential treatment.
U.S. resources for dealing with migrant asylum claims are being overwhelmed by the massive numbers of Central American migrant families who are, as Acting U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Matthew Albence told Breitbart News, “gaming the system” to gain entry.
Approximately 13,000 mostly Central American migrant families and unaccompanied minors are currently camped on the south side of the U.S.-Mexico Border, Breitbart News reported.
Kansas’ Former Secretary of State Kris W. Kobach:
“We are providing huge incentives for migrants to enter illegally and walk up to Border Patrol agents to demand a ride to the Border Patrol stations so they can make what is likely a bogus asylum claim. We know the claims are likely to be bogus because the overwhelming majority of these migrants are denied asylum when their hearings eventually occur.”
We have written about the African migrants who make it to Mexico via Central America. They won’t stop coming if we don’t stop letting them game the system.
