Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Friday, December 07, 2018

On the day he pleaded for his life in federal immigration court, Santos Chirino lifted his shirt and showed his scars. Judge Thomas Snow watched the middle-aged construction worker on a big-screen television in Arlington, Va., 170 miles away from the immigration jail where Chirino was being held. In a shaky voice, Chirino described the MS-13 gang attack that had nearly killed him, his decision to testify against the assailants in a Northern Virginia courtroom and the threats that came next.

"Sometimes, there is not much to go on other than the person's own testimony," he wrote. "Yet this is not a decision we want to get wrong. I've probably been fooled and granted asylum to some who didn't deserve it. I hope and pray I have not denied asylum to some who did."

So err on the side of the asylum seeker you piece of crap. Don't bemoan the fact that you probably get it wrong most of the time. I hope you can never sleep through the night again without remembering Santos Chirino you unfeeling, inhuman piece of filth.

I guess MS13 would not kill him here in the USA. That is funny.

Some people have to prove, on a daily basis, what poor excuses they are for human beings.

#3 it's become easier for them as all they have to do is show support for Trump.

No. They probably wouldn't have. Law Enforcement does't let them do whatever they want here.

Why do you even post?

What? Law Enforcement doesn't stop gang activity. It arrests people after the fact.

The Mexican Cartels have the best blueprint. They send an assassination squads wearing police jackets, then disappear back over the border.

In the United States we have the witness protection system, he'd be alive today if he had been allowed to stay here. The judge is guilty of being an accomplice to murder. Uner international law he could be tried, convicted and punished for refusing asylum to someone in mortal danger. If it were up to me he would be turned over at the Hague.

That's adorable.

Here is my suggestion, your honor: Next time you wish in one hand, ---- in the other.

Let us know which one fills up first, okay?

Does everyone here know what the SS ST. Louis represents?

"The Mexican Cartels have the best blueprint."

They are Ayn Rand approved. If you asked the leaders of the cartels which political party in the U.S. they most closely agree with it would be the Libertarian Party. The cartels represent the end result of Libertarian philosophy.

The shame America can't wash off and now we're doing it to people from Central America but then....they're brownish so it's sort of ok.

Judges say they must handle "death-penalty" cases in a traffic court setting, with inadequate budgets and grueling caseloads. Most records aren't public, most defendants don't speak English and many don't have lawyers to represent them. Cases often involve complex tales of rape, torture and murder. Approval rates can vary widely.

The Trump administration has imposed production quotas and ordered judges to close cases more quickly. They also must enforce a stricter view on who deserves protection in the United States.

Under federal immigration law, fear isn't enough to keep someone from being deported. Asylum applicants must prove they are a target based on their race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group, which for years has included being a victim of gang or domestic violence.

Before he was forced to resign Nov. 7 , Attorney General Jeff Sessions ruled that victims of gangs or domestic abuse generally would not qualify for asylum. He told a crop of new immigration judges that "the vast majority" of claims are invalid, and warned them not to rule based on a sense of "sympathy."

"Your job is to apply the law -- even in tough cases," Sessions said.

A lampoon of an asylum process. Again, more deliberate "malfunction".

Trump Guzzlers and Never Trumpers do more to protect Confederate statues than they do to protect brown people.

It sure sounds like the open borders crowd here wants to rubber stamp every single asylum request. They also sound a lot like Trump in wanting to jail judges who rule in a way they disagree with, even if they're applying the law correctly.

On the contrary. Even the most steadfast have suggested Ellis Island standards.

Why are you misrepresenting?

Based on a recent thread posted.

It seems like Trumpublicans aren't too happy with legal immigrants either.

I wonder how many generations back one would have to go to prove they belong in this country.

And what range of pigments are deemed acceptable.
