Illegal Migrants Sue the Trump Administration After Supreme Court Rules for Ban

Suit says the government 'enacted changes without warning, resulting in elevated rejection rates for asylum-seekers'

Over 125 border-crossing families, including children, are suing the United States government, specifically the Trump administration.

These illegal migrants claim the Trump administration violated their rights as asylum-seekers through the arbitrary and capricious implementation of a virtual asylum ban at the southern border.

The lawsuit was filed in the D.C. District Court this past Monday.

It’s first retaliation since the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Trump’s ban on asylum-seekers to slow down the run on the U.S. southern border and allow officials to vet those coming here on those grounds.

“Unlike other suits that have targeted the asylum rule itself, the latest filing challenges the Trump administration on procedural grounds, saying the government has enacted changes without warning, resulting in elevated rejection rates for asylum-seekers,” Reuters reported.

“With the administration rolling out a series of anti-immigration regulations in rapid succession, asylum-seekers are not being told which of the shifting standards will apply to their cases, said Hassan Ahmad, the lead attorney on the lawsuit,” the same outlet reported.

“What we’re challenging is the haphazard lack of legal procedure. There’s no rhyme or reason to it,’ Ahmad said, as Reuters also noted.

“The plaintiffs are 126 women and children from 59 families, mostly from the impoverished and violent Central American countries of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, who were rejected in the early stages of the asylum process while staying at the South Texas Family Residential Center in Dilley, Texas.”

Just how do they think they can challenge federal laws on immigration that have been in effect for years before Trump became president?

Trump is only obeying federal law, and these women are not eligible for asylum in the U.S., since they did not seek asylum in the first country into which they migrated.

As stated in the 11th Amendment, “The judicial power of the United States shall not be construed to extend to any suit in law or equity, commenced or prosecuted against one of the United States by citizens of another state, or by citizens or subjects of any foreign state.”

We don’t believe these illegal migrants sued anyone. Bloated “civil rights groups” lawyers who stand to gain money by “taxing” American citizens sued.

Should we not sue these illegal migrants for lying to the United States about their asylum claims if they are false?

Trump is only obeying federal law, and these women are not eligible for asylum in the U.S., since they did not seek asylum in the first country into which they migrated.

Should we not throw them in jail and then deport?

These are precisely the types of people we would not want. They would sue for every little thing.

One would assume most of the “asylum-seekers” are uneducated when it comes to U.S. law. Therefore, U.S. attorneys are preaching the law to these people to file a lawsuit.

Or it could be so-called lawyers are having them sign without explaining to these people what could happen so that they prove a point.
