Trump's proposed "deal" is cruelty sandwiched in bad faith. It is an unprecedented attack on U.S. humanitarian protections in exchange for continuing programs that the courts have largely already enforced. It dramatically undercuts asylum protections...
....(2) guts the TVPRA, making it EASIER to deport unaccompanied children, and strips away due process protections. It increases Trump's mass deportation force, increasing detention by 20% allowing for 52,000 people per day being detained. It puts a fee on asylum seekers...
...(3) for the first time ever. It includes new grounds to terminate asylum or declare claims "frivolous" & completely bans ability for children from Central America to apply for asylum within the US. And, of course, it includes the $5.7 billion for Trump's vanity border wall...
...(4) which is only the FIRST downpayment on a ridiculous, immoral & unnecessary campaign promise that will cost taxpayers tens of billions of dollars. What do we "get" for all this? Continuation of TEMPORARY protections for a fraction of DACA recipients--which courts have...
...(5) already granted, but this time those recipients now pay $1,000 fee; Temporary Protected Status (TPS) (again w/addl fees) for people from Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Haiti, again something the courts have already weighed in on; &, oh yes...
...(6) it effectively ends TPS in the future by requiring people to be present in the US to apply for TPS. Anyone who knows the immigration system knows that this bill is the end to asylum & TPS. Let me repeat: cruelty sandwiched in bad faith. Not a real offer at all. No Deal.
