Immigrant Asylum-Seekers May Get Less Time To Prepare Their Cases Under A New Trump Administration Rule

The Trump administration is attempting to speed up initial screenings of immigrants seeking asylum, a move that advocates say will give immigrants less time to prepare for their interviews or recover from dangerous journeys.
Asylum officers have had to wait at least 48 hours after an immigrant has been detained for crossing into the US to interview them and hear their case. However, under a new directive implemented by US Citizenship and Immigration Services Acting Director Ken Cuccinelli, that window has been reduced to one calendar day, according to a policy change released to staffers on Monday and obtained by BuzzFeed News.
The policy is also the latest in a string of maneuvers pushed by the Trump administration — and Cuccinelli — that advocates believe is aimed at restricting asylum.
“This is another way to limit the process — that will lead to fewer positive credible fear interviews, more deportations,” said Ur Jaddou, a former chief counsel at USCIS. “This goes right along with his mistaken view that he is there to limit the number of people that obtain a benefit and remove people beyond his authority.”
Agency officials, however, said the new policy was an attempt to reduce a significant portion of the processing timeline and make the system move more efficiently as the administration deals with record numbers of families crossing the border.

I know that it can be depressing to read. The behaviour of the Administration is meant to discourage us. Don’t let it. Let it enrage you. Keep you focused on why these people should be in jail, and why all of the GOP needs to go in November 2020. I will remind you that not one Republican has stepped up to call out this Administration. Not one. And, for those running in 2020, this must be held around their necks as an albatross.

      From the article:
      “Underwood’s plan — introduced in March and known as the Health Care Affordability Act — would offer a potentially crucial boost to ACA enrollment by blasting away the dreaded “subsidy cliff,” which mandates that no family of four making more than $100,400 can qualify for any tax credits whatever to help pay for insurance. The plan would also cap the premiums people pay on their health insurance at 8.5 percent of income. Some people now could be paying three times that much, making insurance technically attainable but practically unaffordable.”

    I wrote last night that this is what I couldn’t get past.
    A guy with a HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA getting a position at one of THE elite private schools in not only NYC, but the U S A?

    And , even back then…it was THE SCHOOL to go to. This was pre-diversity. This was even pre-new money.
    Back then?
    Wasn’t nothing but OLD OLD Money allowed into Dalton.

    And…don’t forget…Daddy Barr was forced to resign A YEAR LATER😒😒😒

    I am waiting for the Dalton victims to come forward.

    You know, I get tired of Chris Hayes giving them the White folks benefit of the doubt. Last night, he was mocking what he called “the conspiracy theorists ”

    Once again, trying to both sides bullshyt.
    The right wing conspiracies are nothing but lies.

    On our side, you get a string of these, and as I always say:

    Not👏 enough 👏 coincidences 👏in👏the👏 Western 👏World👏

    And suddenly, I am a conspiracy kook😒😒
    Your Whiteness is showing, Chris.
