Asylum Laws Being Used Against The US, Time To Change It.
It was just a couple of months ago we saw the caravan of illegals headed to our border to seek asylum, these people now know if they claim they are asylum seekers we are obligated under the law to allow them entry, this needs to stop due to abuse.
While I understand the need to open up for people coming here seeking asylum, my wife’s family came for that exact reason, the problem I have is the abuse of this system, if this continues maybe we need to put it on hold until we can fix it to stop this rampant abuse of it.
The law is rather straightforward, and as such creates terrible problems for this nation, all an immigrant, both legal or illegal needs to do is say they are seeking asylum, make up a reason for it, they have to be granted access into this nation, that is a bunch of nonsense, no one should be given access until their case is proven. This can be found in 8 U.S. Code § 1158, and as such is very flawed, I seriously doubt the ones writing up the law intended this hole to be used.
The law states:
Any alien who is physically present in the United Statesor who arrives in the United States (whether or not at a designated port of arrival and including an alien who is brought to the United States after having been interdicted in international or United Stateswaters), irrespective of such alien’s status, may apply for asylum in accordance with this section or, where applicable, section 1225(b) of this title.
The old law said you had to present your case before you were allowed entry, now this law states you only have to claim asylum, the US is thus obligated to allow you entry, this needs to stop now. We should let no one in unless they can show there is a danger to them or their family, if not, then don’t allow entry.
We are allowing loopholes in the law to be our undoing, the problem right now is the fight for control of our Congress and Senate, the DNC does not want to fix this, they see the loss of the Middle-Class support they used to enjoy, rather then court the Middle Class to raise this support back up they have totally rejected them and turned to illegals as a means to swell their ranks, this was never the intent of this law.
And the DNC is not alone in this, for some reason many of the GOP seem to support this as well, which is incomprehensible to me, it is like they want to shoot themselves in the foot. We need to demand with our elections if we come out and vote the way our politicians are asking of us, that they need to come up with a fix to this to stop this invasion of our borders.
