Skip to comments.Two-thirds of illegal immigrant children approved for asylum: report
Posted on 07/18/2014 7:40:31 PM PDT by markomalley
Nearly two-thirds of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children requesting asylum this year have had their initial applications approved, the House Judiciary Committee reported Friday in data that suggests those kids surging across the border who ask to stay will likely be able to gain admission to the U.S.
The numbers show both that the U.S. government generally believes the children are fleeing dangerous conditions that they cannot return to, and signals that it will be far tougher to deport most of the children.
According to the Judiciary Committees numbers, 65 percent of unaccompanied childrens asylum applications are approved by the initial asylum officer so far in 2014. Even those who are refused can ask for an appeal, which means the total number who end up staying, with government permission, is likely to be higher.
That figure doesnt include the others who never apply for asylum and try to disappear into the shadows, or who spend years in the country awaiting court dates.

Who approved them and on what basis?
We can’t solve the world’s problems and importing them doesn’t fix them either.
using Initial Asylum officer as my search term....I located this form 2013
Exactly. That “crime and violence” BS is just that. BULL****! What about all of the crime and violence going on here?! Doesn’t our “crime and violence” count enough to keep these illegal alien invaders out?
Without the proper documentation and background checks that other immigrants have to go through ... how can this happen? This has to be so unconstitutional as to me roaming around in the realm of monumental. Even delving into the fantasy world of the unbelievable.
One of the few times I’m glad I’m an old fart and soon to depart this screwed up world, I don’t want to be around when all this crap hits the Biblical fan, so to speak.
But The Lyin' King said he would send them all back home.

Elian Gonzalez’s revenge on conservatives?
Some of the kids are gang members and killers.
Its funny how democrats went from whining about the epidemic of violence in America to calling America a safe haven from violence in about two weeks flat.
I don’t know if the Republic will survive Obama.
I’ve been posting for some time that a lot of these children are actually applying for asylum, which is legal. We really, desperately need to change our asylum laws, but this is currently a legal, lawful process. I don’t think Congress ever thought we’d have a president who would encourage or take advantage of the law like Obama, but it’s really Congress’s fault for passing such laws in the first place. BTW, I’m pretty sure this system was set up before Obama.
We really have only one recourse. We have to kick the bums out in both parties. We have too many that put the needs of foreigners ahead of the needs of Americans! These politicians need to be (MUST BE!) eliminated at the ballot box.
I have a friend that does street ministries. I met with him today and he told me about a guy he met earlier this morning that told him that he worked for a federal contractor whose job is to facilitate the transportation of the illegals via bus and airlines into the U.S! I told him to get that guy’s name and phone number ASAP if he can. Has anyone else run into someone that can verify this? I know about the posting for a bid for this type a few weeks ago. I’m talking about someone that I can actually talk to not just hearsay...
Homeland Security has power to grant asylum. Congress can now go home.
