Potential New Policy: Illegal Aliens Will Be Reunited With Kids If They Sign Self-Deportation Order

Is this something real? A one time thing? Or something an illegal (or the reporter) made up? Let’s hope it’s the first

(Texas Tribune) Central American men separated from their children and held in a detention facility outside Houston are being told they can reunite with their kids at the airport if they agree to sign a voluntary deportation order now, according to one migrant at the facility and two immigration attorneys who have spoken to detainees there.

A Honduran man who spoke to The Texas Tribune Saturday estimated that 20 to 25 men who have been separated from their children are being housed at the IAH Polk County Secure Adult Detention Center, a privately-operated U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement facility for men located 75 miles outside Houston. He said the majority of those detainees had received the same offer ofreunification in exchange for voluntary deportation.

The 24-year-old detainee, who spoke on the condition of anonymity and requested the Tribune use the pseudonym Carlos because he feared retaliation, told the Tribune that he abandoned his asylum case and agreed to sign voluntary deportation paperwork Friday out of “desperation” to see his 6-year-old daughter, who was separated from him after the pair illegally crossed the border in late May. The man said two federal officials suggested he’d be reunited with his daughter at the airport if he agreed to sign the order, which could lead to him being repatriated to his violence-torn home country in less than two weeks.

“I was told I would not be deported without my daughter,” said Carlos, adding that he’s now hoping to revoke the voluntary deportation order he signed and get legal help to fight his case. “I signed it out of desperation… but the truth is I can’t go back to Honduras; I need help.”

Well, then “Carlos” shouldn’t have paid a smuggler $7,000 to bring him and his daughter (if she actually is, rather than just someone he’s using to attempt to gain sympathy) to the US and help them sneak across the border before turning themselves in to the Border Patrol. I’m sorry, the U.S. cannot take care of every single person in Latin America who thinks they come from a nation as bad as, say, Chicago or Detroit. “Carlos” could have used the money to apply for asylum the legal way.

Carl Rusnok, an ICE spokesman, said Saturday evening that the agency “cannot research vague allegations,” but would do so if given specific details about the migrants who made the claims.

“It is unprofessional and unfair for a media outlet to publish such allegations without providing names, dates and locations so that these allegations can be properly researched,” Rusnok said. The Tribune declined to give Rusnok the detainees’ identifying information.

In other words, sadly, this doesn’t seem to be an official policy. Bummer

A Homeland Security and Health and Human Services fact sheet released Saturday said parents ordered removed from the U.S. can “request that his or her minor child accompany them,” but that “many parents have elected to be removed without their children.”

In other words, many parents, and many who say they are parents but really aren’t, can take their kids with them when deported. But don’t. And will attempt to use them in the future when they sneak back into the US as shields.

And, despite all the further sob stories in the thinly veiled op-ed article, everything is on the illegals. They chose to do things the wrong way, the illegal way.

    “We’ve kidnapped your little girl and you can see her if you do exactly what we say. If you don’t, you may never see her again, and we’ll throw you in jail anyway.”

    That’s what I call leverage!!

    Coupled with Trump’s call for ending due process, makes this a Brave New World!

      That’s what Zippy said 4 years ago.

      Trump’s the one who gave these people a chance to see their kids.

      And, if they don’t like it, they should have left them at home.

      • Jeffery says:

        Don’t know who ‘zippy’ is, but this is the first time since the US snatched Native American kids and sent them off to boarding schools that the US used wholesale kidnapping as a strategy.

        Trump claims to have solved the problem that was 100% his own making, and it’s not been solved.

        So NuCons are OK with abusing children to get the parents to obey? Is it upsetting that Trump changed what NuCons feel is an fair and effective policy?

    Since this is the crew that never showed up for deportation hearings, I kinda doubt they can be trusted with this.

    On the bright side, the Lefties’ ginned up “crisis” has slowed illegals to a crawl as they’re rethinking the idea of being separated from their kids.
