Immigration judges sent to speed up process

SAN DIEGO – The Justice Department said Friday that it will temporarily transfer immigration judges to six detention centers mostly near the border with Mexico in an effort to put President Donald Trump’s immigration directives into effect.

The department’s Executive Office for Immigration Review said the transfers to four locations in Texas and one each in Louisiana and New Mexico will occur Monday. Judges were previously moved to two immigration detention centers in California.

Trump’s executive order on border and immigration enforcement in January says judges should immediately be assigned to immigration detention centers. Many cases are in courts where immigrants are freed before their cases are heard.

Trump’s executive order also calls for construction of a wall on the 2,000-mile border with Mexico and the addition of 5,000 Border Patrol agents and 10,000 Immigration and Customs and Enforcement officers and agents.

    Yea! How wonderful it is that the law is being enforced. I know several people who lost their jobs because the proprietor needed to make more money by paying in cash.

    It remains to be seen how these judges actually carry out their lawful duties. I can think of two Federal judges that have decided that they are crusaders for the left. We can only hope that they will apply the law, especially the Constitution. Instead of this social engineering from the bench ****.

    We need to set up massive “tent city” detainment centers in red states like Texas. Put Joe Arpaio over the whole project. Make sure none of them are within reach of any liberal activist judges.

    If we find illegals in CA, transport them immediately to the tent city for processing. Ignore any cease and desist orders the lib judges produce. Any efforts to restrain the ICE workers must be overruled or overwhelmed. Notice that they will go to great lengths to restrain federal ICE workers but it’s “impossible” to restrain one illegal. Sure it is.

    If they ramp up their game, declare martial law. If they want to get really nasty, we activate the National Guard. But Dems are sneaky and will try to have the Gov of CA undermine our efforts. OK. We first send the CA National Guard to Iraq. Then activate the Texas National Guard and move them into California, along with some regular Army vets from Iraq/Afghanistan.
