Former ICE Director Explains to AOC that Crossing the Border Illegally...is Illegal

Most of the time career bureaucrats are incredibly patient with politicians when explaining the intricacies and technical procedures of their agency.

I like that this bulldog ripped her a new anus in front of everyone and didn’t back down once.

Just tell her it’s like a garbage disposal. If you stick your hand in it while it’s running there will be consequences. Just like crossing the border illegally has consequences. (There the subliminal message is sent. Let’s see if she has a stump tomorrow.).

I’ve had enough of all this virtue signaling and grievance politics! If you are arrested for attempting to cross the border with a child, then you SHOULD be separated. It’s completely irresponsible of the parent, who should know that crossing the border constitutes an illegal act in whatever country they hope they are going to end up in.

Why are they so concerned about kids being removed from their (alleged) parents? Doesn’t it just fall into their no-limits abortion advocacy?

I don’t know - I thought he was way too polite, professional, and patient. It’s like he knew he was dealing with a stunted child.

Good point! However the narrative strategy is play on fake sympathies that Femocrats actually appear to care. When they openly advocate that America is not a sovereign country then this type of questioning is simply trying to pander for political points!

Lol, the democrats don’t understand the definition of “illegal” They seem to think it means loophole.

He owned her. The law is the law. Change it if you want. But enforce the law.

He ripped nothing, as I watch the video, she owned him. Seeking asylum is not illegal, it’s internationally recognized by treaty which the United States is Party to.

As usual you are making a fool of yourself and you are completely wrong! Recite the specific law regarding asylum claims into the US passing through a country which said country (such as Mexico) has already offered asylum and the aliens are subject to detention without further rights granted!

Exceptions
(A) Safe third country
Paragraph (1) shall not apply to an alien if the Attorney General determines that the alien may be removed, pursuant to a bilateral or multilateral agreement, to a country (other than the country of the alien’s nationality or, in the case of an alien having no nationality, the country of the alien’s last habitual residence) in which the alien’s life or freedom would not be threatened on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion, and where the alien would have access to a full and fair procedure for determining a claim to asylum or equivalent temporary protection, unless the Attorney General finds that it is in the public interest for the alien to receive asylum in the United States.

Right, and international law via treaty that the US is party to obliges asylum seekers be received and processed. If they don’t meet the criteria they are processed accordingly. But creating circumstances which prevent asylum seekers from entering at POE’s is the problem.

(2)Termination of asylumAsylum granted under subsection (b) does not convey a right to remain permanently in the United States, and may be terminated if the Attorney General determines that—

(A)the alien no longer meets the conditions described in subsection (b)(1) owing to a fundamental change in circumstances;

(B)the alien meets a condition described in subsection (b)(2);

©the alien may be removed, pursuant to a bilateral or multilateral agreement, to a country (other than the country of the alien’s nationality or, in the case of an alienhaving no nationality, the country of the alien’s last habitual residence) in which the alien’s life or freedom would not be threatened on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group, or political opinion, and where the alien is eligible to receive asylum or equivalent temporary protection;

(D)the alien has voluntarily availed himself or herself of the protection of the alien’s country of nationality or, in the case of an alienhaving no nationality, the alien’s country of last habitual residence, by returning to such country with permanent resident status or the reasonable possibility of obtaining such status with the same rights and obligations pertaining to otherpermanent residents of that country; or

(E)the alien has acquired a new nationality and enjoys the protection of the country of his or her new nationality.

(3)Removal when asylum is terminated

An alien described in paragraph (2) is subject to any applicable grounds of inadmissibility or deportability under section [1]1182(a) and 1227(a) of this title, and the alien’s removal or return shall be directed by the Attorney General in accordance with sections [1229a]

Asylum seekers…ARE NOT illegal.

Blah, blah blah!

Illegals crossing over into the US when already granted asylum from another country first negates asylum status and this is also in the same international treaty! The ICE director is correct, and you are an Ass! Yes they are entering the country illegally!

We call that professional and appropriate…:man_shrugging:

Ummmm… what circumstances? What circumstances prevent an asylum seeker from presenting themself at a port of entry before they illegally cross the border? Claiming asylum AFTER illegally crossing the border is like getting stopped for speeding and telling the cop that you were going to slow down if he hadn’t stopped you. Maybe you believe that shit but it’s not how our legal system works.

They are if they broke the law before claiming they are seeking asylum. REAL asylum seekers present themselves at a port of entry designated for the purpose of processing asylum seekers.

Yeah but in the law itself under international guidelines that is not specified. What make most of these asylum seekers illegal is the fact they crossed over another sovereign country to cross into the US, which is why a lot of them were returned to Mexico to await their asylum claims! Essentially they negate their asylum claims when Mexico already offered them asylum. This falls under international rule of 1st country of entry in which Asylum seekers arrive in. The law specifies they don’t have to apply for asylum in the 1st country they arrive to but that any country they do apply to they must remain in the 1st country of entry while awaiting their asylum case to be heard or granted! In this case many are trying to circumvent that process by entering the country illegally and therefore negate their asylum claims when doing so!

Also Trump can issue a EO demanding that asylum claims be made in the country of residence at the US Embassy! This he can do and there is nothing congress or the courts can do as it’s under jurisdiction of the State Department!

Also another factor is when some are caught, such as traveling in a vehicle during a routine traffic stop, also negates any asylum claims. Such as being caught at a certain distance away from any US border!
