Strategic hire AG Bill ‘Low’ Barr has decided that detained asylum seekers who have shown they have a credible fear of returning to their countries will no longer be able to ask a judge to grant them bond; instead it will be at the discretion of the Dept. of Homeland Security (and not immigration judges) whether or not to release them from detention while their cases proceed. So, in other words, asylum-seeking refugees will be imprisoned for being refugees while awaiting for asylum. There’s an ugly tautology there that would make oligarchs and dictators everywhere else blush, but not Hair Füror.
The goal, of course, is to make asylum-seeking people turn around and head back into whatever danger they were fleeing rather than face years in US prisons while awaiting a determination on their status.
The only question that remains is did Comrade Trump’s pocket Nazi Stephan Miller drink a glass of water while Barr announced this. I love that part of the act!
