During a hearing before the Senate Homeland Security Committee this week, McAleenan said DHS is releasing “100 percent” of adult border crossers into the interior of the country who arrive with children at the southern border, including those who are not even asking for asylum.
Breitbart.com reports: Then, within four to six weeks, McAleenan said the adult border crossers who have been released into the U.S. are given work permits allowing them to take American jobs while they await their court hearings, oftentimes two years down the road.
McAleenan confirmed the mass catch and release effort in an exchange with Sen. Rob Portman (R-OH):
PORTMAN: So, what percent of those families who come up to the border and, again, approach your officer, ask for asylum, are being released into the community within days?
MCALEENAN: 100 percent.
PORTMAN: 100 percent?
MCALEENAN: Yeah, and they’re not necessarily asking for asylum. They–they don’t–they don’t have to. They can go into an immigration proceeding and not have to present that case for potentially years.
PORTMAN: And when they go into the community, you say can take a while. It’s over two years in Ohio, you should know, before we can have a court hearing. So, it’s over a two-year period. What’s the average around the country, do you know?
MCALEENAN: The average is around two years, and in some jurisdictions even longer.
PORTMAN: And during that time period, can those individuals work?
MCALEENAN: Yes, by and large, although we’re–we’re looking at–at tightening the–the rules so that there is not an opportunity to take advantage of the system.
PORTMAN: So, they have a work permit. My understanding is they don’t get the work permit immediately but after a certain period of time. Is it six weeks?
MCALEENAN: It’s in … the 30 to 90 days range, that’s correct.
PORTMAN: And those individuals then … are going to work. So, if you are a trafficker, what you’re telling people is, one, if you come to the border … and seek asylum, or even if you’re coming to the border … and seeking an immigration hearing, you’ll be released into the community for a couple of years at least before your hearing, and you’ll have the ability to work. And with the wage differential of, you know, being able to make 10 times as much or sometimes as much as 20 times as much in the United States…
Breitbart News has chronicled for months DHS’s mass release of border crossers and illegal aliens into the interior of the country. Since December 2018, about 185,500 border crossers and illegal aliens have been released into the U.S. with only the promise that they will return for their court hearings years later.
In the last week, alone, DHS has released nearly 8,000 border crossers and illegal aliens into the interior of the country. At current rates, more than 445,000 border crossers and illegal aliens will be released into American communities by the end of the year.
The catch and release process often entails federal immigration officials busing border crossers into nearby border cities and dropping them off with the hope that they show up for their immigration and asylum hearings. The overwhelming majority of border crossers and illegal aliens are never deported from the country once they are released into the U.S.
Today, there are anywhere between 11 and 22 million illegal aliens living across the country — the majority of which are concentrated in states like California, New York, Florida, Texas, and Illinois.
This is not new... President Trump needs to fire most of the leadership in the DOJ, DHS, FBI, and remove as many Immigration Judges as possible... Declare Martial Law on the border... apply it to illegal aliens only... then deport massive numbers as quickly as possible... ignore any district courts rulings... claiming Masrtial law ends their jurisdiciton... Congress would have to pass an Act too repeal Martial Law and that would take 2/3rds of each housse to oerride a Presidential veto... it would also clearly mark those in Congress who favor open borders... so the electorate may remove them come next election cycle.
End Catch and Release in the USA... end givng them work permits. Both are legal acts supported by current Immigration law... Court orders are not law. Only Congress may write and pass laws. Catch, detain and process the illegals for immidiate deportation Mr. President... but RELEASE THEM IN MEXICO not the US of A... if they return for a second helping... RELEASE THEM in rafts off some remote Mexican Island in the Pacific or Gulf.
Let Mexico deal with these illegal immigrants as they transited ... invaded the US from Mexico and we can not be certain of where they call home.
This is a bit different, they state, 11 and 22 million illegal aliens, so is this withing the last 2 years?
and if you remember, it was posted that close to 64 million from the year 2000 came into the US.
So like you said if they had two to four babies, that adds up to a lot of people on food stamps.
That is another reason they deleted so many videos, that connected this site to true information, not a approved MSM, thingy......:)
