Immigration advocates mad that feds might let young illegals choose deportation voluntarily

posted at 11:21 am on July 11, 2014 by Allahpundit

We can’t deport them against their will — federal law on child trafficking requires that they stay here in the care of HHS and eventually receive a hearing if they’re from a non-contiguous country — but can’t we deport them with their cooperation? No way, say amnesty fans. You can’t get legal consent from a minor for something like that; they’re bound to feel coerced and “volunteer” for removal even if they don’t want to go. A hearing is the only way. And if most of them, after being released, decide to vanish into the United States and never show up for that hearing, hey. Just another example of “due process” being used to subvert the legal process entirely.

The punchline here is that the reason the White House and people like John McCain are suddenly eager to stop this flow of migrants from Central America, even if it means getting kids to “volunteer” to go home, is because it’s screwing up their plans for a much bigger amnesty. They’ve spent 18 months pounding the table for comprehensive immigration reform and now the project is at risk thanks to this ongoing example at the border of just how FUBAR U.S. enforcement is. You would think immigration activists would be smart enough to see sending the kids home as the strategic retreat by their allies that it is, in service to winning the wider war. Nope.

The White House plans to send a separate request to Congress to allow DHS to offer voluntary removal to all unaccompanied children who are picked up at the border, Johnson said. Right now, the border patrol can only offer that option to children who cross the border from Mexico. The officials offer those children the opportunity to go home safely and be delivered into the custody of Mexican child welfare officials without any kind of deportation punishment. Advocates say the interviews are confusing and intimidating for a child…

Indeed, the current trafficking law requires that the Department of Health and Human Services take care of the undocumented children who cross the border if they are not from Mexico. (The exception in the trafficking law also applies to Canada, but few people are apprehended on the Northern border.) The children are provided with medical care, mental health screenings, and education. They are also given some legal services, although not actual representation.

Issa says that amounts to free babysitting for people who crossed the border illegally. It’s hard to argue with him. The testimony of HHS officials this week on Capitol Hill describing the care of the children in their country can almost be read like an advertisement for crossing the border. “The children in our shelters receive physical, mental, dental, education, and physical activities,” said Mark Greenberg, Acting Assistant Secretary for Children and Families at HHS at a Wednesday hearing in the Senate Homeland Security Committee.

The American Immigration Lawyers Association is unhappy with “voluntary deportation,” notes National Journal, and some Democrats in Congress might be ready to side with them and force a fight over security funding because of it. Either we shift back to summary deportation, though, whether voluntary or compulsory (if Congress has the numbers to amend the statute), or we keep the current system in which HHS ends up handing kids off to relatives in the U.S. who are themselves illegal, never to be seen again. According to the WSJ, more than 47,000 children were apprehended at the border last year. Many of them were from Mexico and thus some were summarily deported, but it’s hard to know how many. Of the number who weren’t immediately sent back, just 3,500+ received formal orders of deportation — and of that number, just 1,600 or so were returned, meaning that more than half of the kids who actually did end up in the system also ended up evading it in the end.

Right now, there are nearly 42,000 — no typo — cases pending, with backlogs of two or three years not uncommon. So, clearly, what we need is an even slower system involving even more process-evading process:

[M]ore than half of all minors who go through immigration court proceedings in the U.S. do so without the guidance of an attorney. That’s why the American Immigration Council, along with the American Civil Liberties Union, Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, Public Counsel and K&L Gates LLP, have filed a class-action lawsuit against the United States, arguing that the government should be required to provide legal representation to children during immigration court proceedings

The current flow of undocumented minors, many from Central America, over the Mexican border into Texas—about 90,000 are expected to arrive this year in all—will eventually flood the already clogged immigration courts. Immigration proceedings are considered a civil matter, rather than a criminal one under U.S. law and as a result, defendants—regardless of age—are not required by law to be provided with counsel if they cannot afford a lawyer on their own. The groups suing the government want to make sure that all of these kids will have access to legal representation when their day in immigration court comes.

“A fair hearing means having an opportunity to be heard and they can’t have a meaningful hearing without a legal representative,” said Beth Werlin, the American Immigration Council’s deputy legal director.

Imagine the backlog when every young illegal not only gets an asylum hearing but has an experienced lawyer working procedural magic to delay those hearings as long as possible. Could the backlog reach 10 years? At that point you might as well skip the hearings altogether and amnestize the kids as they enter the country, as there’ll be virtually no way to find them and enforce the orders by the time they’re issued. Which, again, is the desired outcome. Grassroots righties like to accuse lefties of following the Cloward-Piven strategy in all manner of things, but it really is apt here. The goal is to undermine border enforcement as much as possible. That means is overloading that system, replete with new legal procedures, to the point where it can’t cope so that a more left-wing system replaces it. It’s working.

Serious question: If we’re hot to import endless thousands of children from violent countries, why aren’t Iraqi and Afghan children getting first dibs? Libertarians argue that America can’t be a global policeman, and the worse Iraq gets these days, the more persuasive that argument seems. We’re not here to solve the world’s problems, they say. Yet some of them (not the Pauls, it should be said) also basically argue that America should be the world’s nursemaid for anyone who actually makes it across the border. When it comes to mass illegal immigration from war- or gang-torn countries, evidently we are here to solve the world’s problems. In that case, why is surviving a journey through Mexico and into Texas the moral touchstone for who should be allowed admittance? If we’re going to start amnestizing kids, we should probably start with kids whom we already have a direct relationship with after 10 years of war and reconstruction. But since Iraqis and Afghans don’t have as easy a route into Arizona as Hondurans and Guatemalans, they’re stuck dealing with ISIS and the Taliban while Central Americans enjoy HHS’s babysitting service. I don’t get it.

It sure is going to be easier to find a doctor, engineer, or IT professional with all the amnesty we’re throwing at these invaders. Or could it be that those low-skill and low-education folk here legally (including citizens) just got a whole lot of competition for the kinds of jobs available to these groups.

At some point, activists for blacks are going to be screaming about the invasion. Maybe they should be handing out empathy bears so they don’t seem so mean when the inevitable calls for closing the border come from groups currently allied with illegal aliens.

One thing Americans need to learn from this debacle is that we MUST stop allowing immigration lawyers and LaRaza activists to write our immigration laws.

Our current immigration system is so backlogged not just because there are so many illegals here, but also because illegals get so many rights under current laws — lawyers, multiple hearings, multiple appeals, etc. There is no need for it, but it works to the benefit of immigration lawyers and LaRaza amnesty pimps, i.e., the people who write the laws. They, not surprisingly, write the laws to benefit themselves and their political goals. They have no concern whatsoever for the rights of U.S. taxpayers, legal immigrants, citizens, or the nation as a whole — and it shows in the laws.

Presidents of Mexico and Guatemala made a deal to traffic these illegals they are dumping into the US….announced Monday in the mexican press.

DHS advertised for “escorts for the illegal kids in January, 2014

Ads are popping up offering $6,000.00 to house the illegals.

It will cost $67,000.00/yr to school each illegal kid….cause a lot of these kids don’t even speak regular spanish but a patois, so ESL teacher will need interpreters. (Wonder if we’ll import those too?)

These illegals are being transported to small communities all over the US and the Feds are roping in Churches of different denominations to help them break the law. So far these include Mormon,Baptist,Evangelical and Catholic churches as well as their charities.

Photographs aren’t allowed at the “processing” centers.

Border Patrol checkpoints have been moved back 45 miles from the actual border in Texas to so they can’t prevent entry…

Gov. Perry asked Obama to order DOD to put Nat’l. Guard at Border and Obama used the Nat’l. Guard as a bargaining chip to get Perry’s help persuading congress to give Obama $3.7 Billion of which Gov. Perry says only $100 million will be used for security of the border.

Gov. Perry said Obama isn’t interested in preventing entry…but apprehension and transportation of illegals all over the US.

Certainly these won’t be housed by paedophiles or pederasts…now will they?

I hear Dingy Harry is taking in 20 or so….

All you amnesty shills, I hope they bring them to your homes, and force you to take them in, indefinitely.

The story that is not being reported on is, “how many of those children’s parents are already here”. It appears we are facilitating one big happy family reunion of illegals, no?

The only way the taxpayers should be willing to pay for legal services is so they can represent the children in a termination of parental rights action. Any parent that would risk a child’s life in this despicable way doesn’t deserve parental rights. Put the kid up for adoption to be raised by US citizens and maybe there will be a chance they will turn out okay. Also, that might make a parent in Central America think twice about shipping their kids off to hit paydirt in the welfare system and be an anchor child to bring them into the country.

Democrats need all the future votes they can get, and they certainly can’t start allowing people to make their own decisions/choices! That is NOT what the Democratic party is all about!

YES. If leaving your child in a car for five minutes to go into a drugstore can get you arrested, giving your child to a coyote to make a thousand mile trip to who knows where is absolutely child abuse.

Wash their identities, adopt them out, and burn the paperwork.

On Monday, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Guatemalan president Otto Perez Molina held a joint press conference in Playas de Catazaja, Mexico, to officially announce an agreement to make it easier for those making the illegal journey to the United States from Central America, to cross into Mexico.

The program will also give special protection and even financial assistance to unaccompanied minors now pouring across our border.

The Obama admin has systematically undermined immigration enforcement since 2009, administratively preventing ICE from deporting anyone except felony criminals. http://www.sessions.senate.gov/public/_cache/files/d5cc9b42-16b4-4279-9f0a-bf7372d7c277/nonenforcement-timeline-updated.pdf

Lest we forget, they’re liberals. “Choice” only counts when it’s applied to abortion.

If you base a premise on a lie, then your message is twisted. The federal law does not state we must admit them. They (the aliens) must state they are escaping sexual abuse. Not all of those kids are sex slaves.

Zelsdorf Ragshaft on July 11, 2014 at 11:52 AM

That shows just how crooked media in the US is — that law, from Pres. Bush’s terms, has been made to appear to be some sort of iron-clad ‘have-to’ especially when the issue of “why are they allowed into the country in the first place” comes up (the retort is, “because: Bush — and we have to admit them if they’re OTM”).

No one gets into the details and the obvious being: not all minors OTM are “escaping sexual abuse” but it sure does appear that the Obama Admin is engaging in human trafficking, so the wrong there is still on Obama.

The punchline here is that the reason the White House and people like John McCain are suddenly eager to stop this flow of migrants from Central America, even if it means getting kids to “volunteer” to go home, is because it’s screwing up their plans for a much bigger amnesty.

Heh. I hadn’t thought of that as to why McCain’s suddenly changed his tune and is preaching “deport them” lately.

The reality is, and it really comes down to the issue of basic human nature, UNLESS illegal aliens are deported and deported immediately — not allowed to run free and disappear into the US population afterward, and to avoid court appearances, not that those court appearances generally don’t indulge illegal aliens’ demands to remain here — but UNLESS they’re deported on some automatic basis (enter illegally, get deported immediately in nearly all cases except some sort of bungling tourist and tourist visa issues), it’s basic human nature that illegal aliens are going to amplify in numbers: those already here, not facing deportation, summon others to come and join them, brag about the benefits of being in the USA without respect for our laws, requirements for legality here.

It’s basic human nature to seek self-satisfying. Illegal aliens, when not deported, only encourage more of their behaviors. Deporting them is the only way to get the point across that our laws, the US laws, are not to be ridiculed and exploited.

Obama sure gloated over and enjoyed that deal-making with Mexico’s greedy President while they both lambast US and us citizens for the laws we maintain and most of us respect.

That deal-making was NON Constitutional, too. Obama, Mexico’s Pres., violating the US Constitution and bragging about it.

I am having a really difficult time understanding how ANY US President could and does behave quite so illicitly as does Barack Obama with his Administration. It’s a nightmare, what’s taking place, an utter nightmare.
