House to investigate Trump 'remain in Mexico' policy
The Hill ^ | 01/14/20 11:33 AM EST | JOHN BOWDEN

Posted on 01/14/2020 8:50:42 AM PST by Hojczyk

The House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday announced that it plans to investigate the Department of Homeland Security's Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), which encourages migrants from Central America to seek asylum in Mexico rather than in the U.S.

News of the letter comes just hours after Fox News reported that the Trump administration has begun sending Mexican migrants from non-border states on flights to central Mexico, a policy that reportedly began last month.

DHS officials told the news outlet that the agency could fly two flights a week totaling 250 migrants per week under the program.

Dozens of Senate Democrats wrote a letter to DHS last year opposing the policy, writing at the time that the U.S. has "turned its back on its domestic and international legal obligations by forcing men, women, and children to await resolution of their U.S. asylum cases in parts of Mexico plagued by violence."

"It is imperative that the United States end this reckless course of action and reaffirm its commitment to the principles of due process on which this country was founded," they wrote in August.

President Trump should be moving faster, so they get completely bogged down in investigations.

The dirty little secret is LEGAL immigrants hate ILLEGALS..

They may give Trump the win in 2020...he has to win by 1000,000 votes in all the swing states to over come voter fraud..40,000 is not enough...the democrats were asleep in 2016...because Hillary was 90 per cent the winner in the polls

“forcing men, women, and children to await resolution of their U.S. asylum cases in parts of Mexico plagued by violence.”

That’s because America doesn’t want its “parts” to become plagued by violence.

This is not about violence in mexico for illegals...rather getting illegals into the country ‘before the election’ so they can vote.

When the democrats can’t come up with any productive ideas just investigate something and stall any productive ideas anyone else has.

They cherish “due process” for illegals. “Due process” includes housing, food, medical care, education for the kiddies, free wifi, a car, and big fat cigars.

I wish they’d investigate the huge number of investigations they’ve launched. That investigation alone could take a decade and a hundred million dollars.

Trump has temporarily interrupted their planned destruction of American through mass migration, a la the Roman Empire.

He still has a lot of work to do, and don't think the GOP-e faded way either. These people are all about the long game.

While I approve of this pilot program, it is too small by a factor of at least 1,000. I'd like to send 250,000 illegals per week back to Mexico or to their home countries . . . 12 million illegals per year. The DHS program is a small drop in a very large illegal bucket. Deport all illegals. No exceptions. Hold all asylum claimants outside our country until their claims are investigated and approved, and even then we can probably do more good keeping them in Mexico than bringing them to our much more expensive country.
