Clinton Judge Overruled AG Barr on Bail Hearings for ‘Asylum Seekers’


A federal judge blocked an order from Attorney General William Barr that stated certain asylum seekers can be detained indefinitely.

Judge Marsha Pechman

Judge Marsha Pechman, a Clinton judge in federal court in the commie state of Washington issued a preliminary injunction earlier this year that required asylum seekers who are given a hearing in their proceedings to be released within seven days after that hearing is granted.

The Trump administration had asked her to dismiss that ruling after Barr issued his new asylum order.

Pechman rejected that request Tuesday, ruling that the policy implemented by Barr’s order was “unconstitutional.”

She wrote, “It is the finding of this court that it is unconstitutional to deny these class members a bond hearing while they await a final determination of their asylum request.”

Bloomberg reports that the order mandates immigration judges conduct hearings  for all asylum applicants to ask for release on bail within seven days of a request if they have a “credible fear.”

The judge said immigration authorities must demonstrate in these hearings why applicants aren’t being released. The proceedings must be recorded and a written transcript must be made available, according to the ruling.

That’s pretty much everyone piling into the country.

In April, the same judge ruled these [mostly fake] asylum seekers must be given bail hearings.

U.S. Attorney General William Barr immediately and formally prevented asylum seekers from requesting bail hearings. Tuesday’s ruling specifically addresses and prohibits Barr’s policy, which was set to be enforced July 15.

Barr is fizzling out.

Useless judge again! Likely SCOTUS will toss this decision too like it has every other weenie judges attempt to deny President Trump the same privileges it allowed every other president.

First off these people are not detained indefinitely, just until we can hear their case in immigration court to determine if they are true asylum seekers. BTW 95% of asylum claims are rejected so it seems like a good idea to detain all of them.

Secondly immigration judges are NOT federal judges, they are employees of the DOJ and they are bound by immigration law, NOT the US constitution when it comes to judging these criminals attempt illegal entry into our country.Barr said that Barry’s policy of allowing bail violated the letter of the immigration law, and that is believable because barry violated just about every federal law we had.

This is why they should never be allowed to cross into the United States in the first place. If they’re not in the US they can’t be granted Constitutional rights even though the leftist lunatics have demanded it be given.

Entering our country is illegal and just like any American who breaks the law and is jailed, until asylum is granted they should be required to post bond until they are granted asylum if they want to be released. The billionaire leftists who are bankrolling this invasion on America have plenty of money to pay it.
