For years, the Obama administration has been making it abundantly clear that it is a friend of illegal immigrants. In other words, Obama has been flashing a huge green light to illegal immigrants, and so of course our borders were going to be inundated with them. What we are witnessing down on the southern border is really unprecedented. It has been estimated that twelve times as many kids are crossing our borders illegally now compared to just a few years ago. And they just keep on coming. This is utter madness. I am all for legal immigration. This is a nation of immigrants and we will always need immigration. But everyone should be required to come in through the front door.

Those who overstay a visa waiver don’t have a right to a hearing, ICE says Immigration lawyer: That’s a key question at the heart of a controversial case that’s become the latest lightning rod in the debate over the Trump administration’s crackdown on illegal immigration. ICE officers detained Daniela Vargas in Mississippi this week after she spoke out about the issue at a news conference.

Yet for immigration, those seem to be the two choices. Yes, the policy comports with the law. Yes, the Obama administration engaged in a similar policy on a smaller scale — and yes, the media covered it very differently. He chooses to strictly implement the law, claiming, among other things, that it is a necessity in stopping gang violence. At least, not convincingly. It can certainly be fixed by Congress. The idea, however, that this is something hatched completely in a vacuum is absurd.
Nor is the policy equivalent, in any conceivable way, to the Holocaust or human rights abuses of third world nations. So when people like Joe Scarborough offer hysterical analogues, comparing Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents who are temporarily separating illegal immigrant parents from their children while cases are being heard with Auschwitz guards leading children to cyanide showers, they help create a moronically hyperbolic atmosphere that makes it increasingly impossible to fix anything.
These children deserve better, yes, but there is no evidence that they are being willfully mistreated. In some cases, they are being protected. Those who claim asylum at ports of entry are not separated from their children. Only parents charged with entering the country illegally and who claim asylum after being apprehended are detained.

Just a day earlier, another man who had also been deported multiple times for being in America illegally, Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, was found not guilty by a jury in San Francisco in the shooting death of a woman. That case touched off a national immigration debate. A week before the attacks, Martinez was freed from jail in Portland where he had served time for interfering with police and providing a false birth date.
He was let go despite a request from U. Reese said that if ICE had sent a criminal detention warrant signed by a judge, he could have been held longer. Martinez attacked the two women in Portland on July 24, one in her home and the other in a parking garage. Two relatives of one of the victims and one of the victims herself spoke during the sentencing phase Friday, in which Martinez often grinned.
Under the agreement that spared Martinez a possibly longer sentence if he had been found guilty at trial, he pleaded guilty to 10 counts, including first-degree burglary, sodomy, sex abuse, kidnapping, robbery, and second-degree assault, Girt said. Martinez is not eligible for early release due to a ballot initiative passed by Oregon voters that establishes mandatory minimum sentences for certain crimes, Sarre said.
After 35 years, ICE would be able to take him into custody if they monitor his release date, the attorney said.
