WASHINGTON- On Sunday U.S. President Donald Trump announced that whoever enters the United States boundaries without any judicial process, would be sent back immediately, likening them to invaders who are trying to “break into” the country, from the place they belong.
With the help of social media, Trump said to all, “We cannot allow all of these people to invade our Country. When somebody comes in, we must immediately, with no Judges or Court Cases, bring them back from where they came.”
“Cannot accept all of the people trying to break into our Country. Strong Borders, No Crime!”
On Wednesday, buckled with the pressure, the president issued an executive order, which likely to end up all the separations. But still, the government had failed to reunite around 2,000 children with their parents. President of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, Sherrilyn Ifill also posted on Twitter. “The president of the United States has just forcefully proposed the end of political asylum and no due process for migrants,”
Lee Gelernt, the deputy director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, added to the reporters, “The administration cannot simply get rid of all process for immigrants. The due process clause absolutely applies. It’s not a choice”.
Jorge Baron, executive director for the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project, said, “Here, I think he is making it clear, he just doesn’t want anybody here. He wants people to just be sent back, no matter what”.
ACLU’s Gelernt said, “It’s already an extremely truncated process, the president’s suggestion that there is a ton of process for these individuals is simply wrong. There are already people being removed with a truncated process”. Trump’s policy of “zero tolerance”, prosecuting adults for entering the country illegally entails a process that typically takes many months. Which required children to be separated from parents because they are not legally allowed to be kept in detention for more than 20 days.
