Days ago, a federal judge, after testimony & evidence & petitions & a lawsuit, ruled that asylum seekers MUST BE given a bond hearing within 7 days.

Now BARR, one man, undoubtedly and irrevocably tied to Donald trump, is overruling immigration courts & the rule of law.

So Barr decided, all by his lonesome, to overrule the court and make a decision which will impact hundreds of thousands of lives. ANY "alien," he says, who is marked for expedited removal, but then passes a Credible Fear Interview (many of those "apprehended" at the border...
including women and children) is not even eligible for a bail hearing. They'll be detained during the entirety of their deportation process (otherwise known as determining whether their asylum case has merit and they get to stay.)

Thanks to the backlog, this can take years.
