@SecNielsen The inaptly named Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) have had a profound effect on the hundreds of asylum seekers who've been sent back to Mexico to wait out their asylum cases. From attempted murder to robbery to potential human trafficking...

@SecNielsen ..these people who are previous victims of violence and threats (hence their requests for asylum) are being subjected to even more trauma bc our govt is being run by a bunch of shïtgibbons.

But this one story of trump's admin's inhumanity takes the cake:
@SecNielsen This all happened today under a shadow of the 9th circuit deciding just Tuesday that DHS can continue sending asylum seekers back to Mexico because of their egregiously flawed reading of immigration law.

One of the 3 judges even says so. (See pg 17)

@SecNielsen A second of the judges comments that, while DHS is likely to ultimately prevail (why? this makes no sense) CBP is doing a bad thing by not following the rules and asking people if they have a fear of being returned to Mexico, before, you know, returning them to Mexico.

(Page 12)
@SecNielsen We have a duty to our treaty obligations and our own laws against "refoulement" and as @BobMooreNews clearly shows, that ain't workin out. DHS is quite obviously in breach of the law.
@SecNielsen @BobMooreNews @ImmJusticeNOW @ifindkarma @axidentaliberal @Norberta36 @lfkraus @DemocracyStorm @TrinityResists @TrisResists @JynErso_Patriot @HMAesq The judge's fix for DHS's complete abrogation of their duty, which is likely to get people killed, if it hasn't already?

Just tell them to do the right thing.

I'm sure that will work splendidly, yer honor.

In a parenthetical a page later, they seem to realize...hmmm, I wonder if CBP isn't asking about fear of return ON PURPOSE?

Amazing analytical mind here.

Hahaha, right? How silly!

So just carry on, carry forward, hari kari for all they care. Maybe one day Congress will fix it. Til then, yer on your own.

They haven't.
