Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, July 11, 2018

The leadership of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) seems determined to refute the notion that people in the federal government don't work hard. To the contrary, top USCIS officials work around-the-clock to come up with creative ways to make life as difficult as possible for those who submit applications to work or live in the United States.

The author of this article, Stuart Anderson, links to the documents that outline the new rules and the consequences applicants face. He also interviewed an expert and included a transcript.

Stuart Anderson: How bad do you think the consequences could be from the USCIS memo on Notices to Appear?

Jennifer Minear: The potential harsh consequences as a result of this memo are staggering.

My neighbor across the street is from Mexico. She has a cleaning service where she has a few other Latina, mostly family, who clean motel rooms and homes. She puts in about 60 hours a week. She owns her home. She is a naturalized citizen. She is the sort of individual we need in this country. We have a product in the US that is in short supply elsewhere. It is called opportunity. It should not be easy to come in. We should be selective. We should expect anyone coming in to be better than the average Joe. If an individual is a failure here we should send them back. If they can not stay out of trouble, off welfare, and don't have the intelligence to learn the common language, need to go back. Sounds sever? It isn't as tough as any other country.

#1, So people should be denied opportunity and a chance to create a better life for themselves based solely on where they happened to be born? What about all the poor folks that were born here in the US, should we be deporting them because they don't live up to your imagined high standards? Your opinions are disgusting.

"We have a product in the US that is in short supply elsewhere. It is called opportunity. It should not be easy to come in. We should be selective."

And who gets to select the few we allow in? You? Trump? You don't have any way of knowing what any immigrant will do with the opportunity of America until they get here. From what I see, and I live close to an area with many illegal immigrants living there, these folks are hard working, honest, decent, pleasant and I welcome them to be here.

There would be lots of houses in S. Florida without roofs without illegal immigrants.

How does Canada, with it's selective, merit-based system do it? And for that matter, just about every other country?

"As explained below, few Americans likely understand the dire consequences a foreign-born professional placed in deportation proceedings will face under the new policy – even if he or she did nothing more than have an application denied after waiting a long time for a decision."

Another terrible spin job that insults everyone's intelligence. Of course they completely omit that the person has already crossed illegally. They already did something wrong in every single situation. Just because a certain half of America wants to ignore a law doesn't make it irrelevant. If Dems don't want it to be illegal, the next time they have control of the different branches, then pass a law that says America is now open to anyone to come in without any due process. THEN the above statement would be in line with reality.

Once Dems stop embellishing, exaggerating, and spinning the negatives, they will be able to accomplish anything. The reality of the situation is bad enough. It doesn't need any help. Everyone know it sucks. Just stop distorting reality to make a point.

"Previously, if an application or petition for immigration benefits were to be denied, the foreign national might be able to depart the U.S. relatively quickly and either remain abroad or obtain approval for another visa that would enable him or her to return to the U.S. However, once an individual is issued a Notice to Appear, he or she is legally obligated to remain in the U.S. and appear before an immigration judge."

The undesirables will no longer be able to leave the country.

Remind anyone of anything?

It sounds like they covered that part to me:

Anderson: Can this happen to an H-1B professional whose employer files for an extension?

Minear: Yes. Many H-1B professionals whose petitions for initial or extended H-1B status are ultimately denied are likely to be placed into deportation proceedings under this policy.

Somehow people need to stop thinking that illegalls are "honest" and hardworking. They are not honest and they should work harder to better the craphole they came from. What county do americans escape to when we are too lazy to solve our internal problems?

Not a fan of our beacon of freedom hope and prosperity that we broadcast to the world I take it.

If you only knew how bad it really is.

It's all lies designed to keep you down.

"they should work harder to better the craphole they came from"

You ever notice how once whites arrive at the means to do so, they don't work to better their neighborhoods, they just flee to the whiter, richer suburbs?

No and you did not notice that either.

11 i am a fan of using the rules to get in here. Why are you a fan of open borders, no income tax, and no vetting of potential new citizens?

Mutant you never heard of White Flight?

No, not the TV show from the 80s, that was Night Flight.

"Why are you a fan of open borders"

Does this mean anything short of The Wall? And, does it include the northern border?

"no vetting of potential new citizens?"

You mean, fetuses or something? Applicants for citizenship are vetted, I don't think anyone opposes that...

Snoofy - You ever hear of entropy and the energy required to slow it down?

So you are saying that the lack of white people in an area causes decay of said area?

#18 | Posted by mutant at 2018-07-12 04:39 PM | Reply

For the record, black citizens live amoungst us in my suburb. Also indians and muslims but no alien reptiles. Seems like smart people of all types do not like to live in decay.

Abandonment happens for many good reasons. Cut off a foot to save the body

When foreigners relocate to someplace in the USA: "they should work harder to better the craphole they came from"

When Americans relocate to someplace in the USA: "Abandonment happens for many good reasons."

Notice anything?

I noticed that you did not notice i was a talking about the illegal entrants originally.

I'll just report what I have actually witnessed about a legal immigrant trying to get legal status in the United STates. It costs many thousands of dollars, year of applications, etc., horrible examinations and interrogations. It is hell!
Were I daughter in law, I would have told America to go to hell a long time ago but she lovew my son, so she has endured ridiculously difficult processes and just plain out evil treatment by our government. It has me to eventually question the actual freedom we pretend to enjoy. WE aren't free, we just pretend we are. The right wing is just made up of better actors.

With no white, the services stop or are reduced. This is a big cause of decay.

Oh, so lawful people should flee the places they live, leaving behind the lawbreakers in the bad neighborhoods.
