US AG: Don’t Deport Mentally-Ill Violent Illegal Alien Felons

 

In a breathtakingly stupid decision, US Attorney General Garland has directed the Board of Immigration Appeals to take into account the mental state of aliens guilty of serious crimes. The existing standard was that it does not matter that the alien felon is nuts, it is whether he is a danger to the American community.

National Review has the story.

The case our illustrious almost-a-Supreme-Court-Justice (God bless you, Mitch McConnell) ruled on involved a Mexican national who was convicted of burglary in New Jersey (and also had a criminal history) but who claimed he would be persecuted in Mexico because of his sexual preference and (unspecified) mental disorders.

Under the Garland rule, the less desirable, less responsible, and more repulsive a violent criminal is in his home country, the more the US should let him stay.

I think, for example, most countries persecute child molesters and take a dim view of violent persons with impulse control issues. In a sane world, these sorts would be the first to be booted from the US but presumably, they are now protected under the Garland Rule.  Confess to perverted impulses and violent hallucinations before the Appeals Board and get asylum–in the asylum that is Biden’s America.

    Makes perfect sense… to this administration.

    This ruling should have an additional clause: “and they must all live in Garland’s household”.

    Just how tone-deaf can this administration be?! In following the preferences of the progressives, they are surely alienating the more moderate voters in their party. You don’t have to be a conservative to think this is a stupid move.

    They count on the others figuring they have no other option.  What,  you think they’d vote for TRUMP???  Or even DeSantis???  Their “base” isn’t nearly as two-faced as our “elite.”

    Unconscionable

    Garland is a disgrace… what is interesting about Garland is that AG is always a political position… former federal judges are Solicitor General or Office Legal Counsel but rarely AG… this is what disturbs what disturbs me most about Garland and he was the first cabinet member selected by Biden

    I have no explanation for why this is, but crime has racial patterns. Hispanics usually commit two kinds of crime: sexual assault on children and driving under the influence. Blacks commit many violent crimes but very few sex crimes. The handful of whites I see commit all kinds of crimes. In my many years as a public defender I have represented only three Asians, and one was half black.

    Emphasis on the “God bless you, Mitch McConnell.”

    This disaster of an AG would have been a bigger disaster as a Supreme.  I don’t give a rat’s rear end what would happen to crooks if we deport them back to their home countries.  I care about what happens to US citizens who suffer at the hands of these illegals . . .

    Just learned of a change in our visa process I didn’t know about.   A new applicant for a  visa from Colombia must wait 2 years,  If you already have a visa which everyone I know has, you must pay 129 dollars to a person who fills out a form, cant’ do it yourself. Cant just visit an Embassy or Consulate, you must hire the person.  Then you wait 3 months while they hold your passport, so business and others who move around the world, have to turn in their passport for three months, then pay 160$ for the visa.  Given that free entry of illegals are in the millions, what could be the purpose?

    No doubt in my military mind; Never in this nation’s history, has an administration done so much to screw the country.
