As President Trump continues his fierce immigration moves by shaking-up the country’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS), it seems he is again ignoring the biggest issue that has been stopping many of his immigration decisions – the courts.
Stephen Miller, the senior adviser for White House, is looking to enforce even tougher immigration policies following the resignation of DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen with more officials in the agency to be forced out soon. Some of the more aggressive enforcement by the senior adviser is permission to detain children beyond 20 days and denial of green cards to immigrants who have received or are likely to receive public assistance. Also, it is believed that Miller wants the return of family separation policy though Mr. Trump denied the claim on Tuesday.
You still have to go through the law
Despite the effort to take resistances out of the way and bring in willing individuals, this current administration still faces the same obstacles, attorney Lee Gelernt said. Gelernt represents migrant parents in matters concerning family separation.
An example of the supremacy of the law was seen on Monday when a judge blocked Trump’s decision to keep asylum seekers in Mexico over the period of their hearings.
This is just one of many other controversial immigration policies that have been blocked by the courts in Mr. Trump’s administration. Zero tolerance border policy is another; it only lasted three months before a US judge ordered that the separated families be reunited.
Therefore, no matter the number of officials taken out of the way the courts remain an almighty obstacle for Trump.
