Despite what Democrats try to do, United States immigration law is pretty clear cut.
Because of this, the left tries all kinds of things to get around the rules. They’ll do anything to make sure border jumpers can stay in the country.
That is why most people who come here against the law claim asylum, thinking that is their Golden Ticket into the country.
But there are only a few reasons a person can claim asylum in the United States. And a federal court just ruled against a common one used by many migrants.
The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals this week dismissed a case brought by an illegal alien from El Salvador, Jose Alberto Hercules, who sought to gain asylum to avoid deportation from the U.S. by claiming he was fleeing violence and would be targeted by gangs if he was deported…
The appeals court found that none of the claims for asylum were valid, underscoring, most prominently, that fleeing violence abroad is not a legitimate reason for foreign nationals to remain in the U.S.
The court ruled that simply trying to flee violence is not a legitimate reason for a migrant to stay in the U.S.
According to law, a person can only claim asylum if they are fleeing violence under specific circumstances. For instance, if they are members of a specific group facing persecution in their original country.
(Such as an ethnic or religious minority being targeted or harmed).
But in this case, an El Salvador man made apparently vague claims about being hurt by gangs if he was sent back to his homeland.
There were no specific threats to justify his asylum claim. It is not as if he was a former gang member who was fleeing retribution. Instead, it appears he simply thought he could come up with this excuse, hoping to get out of the consequences of illegally crossing the border.
This ruling strikes a huge blow against the Biden administration, who seems to be trying to let as many migrants into the country as possible.
The current migrant crisis is the result of Biden removing border protections, and the ongoing narrative from the left being fed to foreigners.
People rush the border thinking they can come in, claim asylum, and then just stick around. But this ruling shows that the many of those border jumpers will not be able to stay.
Perhaps that will discourage more from coming?
- A federal appeals court denied a man from El Salvador asylum based on claims of violence.
- The man had come to America illegally and was about to be deported.
- The court’s ruling establishes that migrants can’t claim asylum simply based on fears of violence.
