President Trump Says..."Our Nation’s Weak Asylum Laws are Encouraging an Overwhelming Increase In Illegal Immigration"

Washington, DC..."We will not rest until our border is secure, our citizens are safe, and we finally end the immigration crisis once and for all."
President Donald J. Trump





MISUSED ASYLUM LAWS: Flaws in our asylum system allow illegal aliens with meritless claims to cross our borders and remain here for years.

Our Nation’s asylum laws have allowed illegal aliens with meritless claims to easily enter and stay in the United States while awaiting legal proceedings.

Asylum seekers at the border only have to meet the low bar for establishing a “credible fear” of returning under which they must show a “possibility” to qualify for asylum.
Aliens who claim a credible fear of returning do not have to provide any verification or corroboration of their claims in order to receive a positive determination and be released into the interior of the United States.

As a result, illegal aliens with meritless cases that are released from detention are able to remain in our communities for years, while their cases are litigated in immigration courts.
AN OVERWHELMING SURGE: Our country faces a growing and overwhelming surge of illegal aliens seeking to take advantage of our weak asylum laws.

Today, approximately one in 10 illegal aliens arriving at our southern border claims a credible fear of return, up from one out of every 100 prior to 2013.

Since 2010, these claims have spiked by 1,700 percent.
This staggering increase has contributed to a backlog of hundreds of thousands of cases in our immigration courts.

This surge is only growing, with reports showing that asylum requests at the southern border have recently increased from 1,500 per week to approximately 2,000 per week.
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) processed approximately 100,000 credible fear claims this last fiscal year (FY), surpassing the 94,000 record set in FY 2016.
In FY 2018, USCIS received approximately 106,000 new asylum requests from those admitted legally, compared to only 25,500 in 2008.

Immigration courts received approximately 160,000 asylum requests in FY 2018, compared to only 42,000 in FY 2008.
A DRIVING FACTOR IN ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION: The standards that apply to the credible fear process is a major driver of our Nation’s immigration crisis.

While there has been an enormous spike in credible fear-initiated claims, relatively few asylum claims have ultimately been found to be meritorious.

Approximately 80 percent of aliens arriving from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador passed initial credible fear screenings, but only 15 percent of those were granted asylum.
There has been a major increase in the number of illegal alien family units arriving at our border and family units now make up a significant percentage of credible fear claims.
The number of family units apprehended by U.S. Customs and Border Protection has increased 620 percent during the past five years.

Family units make up about 40 percent of all credible fear-initiated asylum claims.
As a result of loopholes, nearly all asylum seekers in family units are permitted by the Department of Homeland Security to remain in the United States, pending their asylum hearing.

"We will not rest until our border is secure, our citizens are safe, and we finally end the immigration crisis once and for all."
President Donald J. Trump

Well I would rather be surrounded by people who clearly want to be here, than a bunch of lumphead idiots who think they deserve to be here but demonstrate none of the values that has made this country great for the past two hundred years.

Let us recall the words that welcomed so many of your ancestors when they came here which you now so shame:

Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

The U.S. is the only country that has this "anchor baby" program. The 14th amendment was never intended as a loophole for illegal immigrants to give birth and the baby becomes a citizen.

    4 States report vote flipping in early voting.
    All the flipping went from Democrats to Republicans.
    Besides legal minority voter purges in many GOP states, the voting machines in GOP states are flipping votes.

    This is how Republicans "win".

    I really don’t think all the early voting, by new voters went Republican. Younger voters, minority’s, people who actually might need health care. Trump’s presidency is just to fleece America.
