Since taking over for Jeff Sessions as Attorney General, William Barr has changed course at the Department of Justice.
Many Trump supporters were wondering how far and for how long Barr would push for change.
That question was answered when William Barr made a career-changing decision that no one saw coming.
There is no greater domestic political issue facing the Trump administration than the illegal alien invasion at the Southern border.
Illegal aliens are flooding the border in numbers not seen in over a decade as they take advantage of the loopholes in asylum laws that allow then entry into the country.
Democrats refuse to lift a finger to change the law because they believe the crisis will depress Trump’s voting base turnout in 2020 and that more illegal aliens in the country is better because it means more future Democrat voters if they can pass an amnesty bill.
President Trump and Attorney General Barr recognized this reality.
The President enacted every change to immigration law allowed under Article 2 power and Attorney General Barr took the next step toward helping the President turn the tide of illegal aliens pouring into the country.
Attorney General Barr released a change to immigration rules that states that membership in a family unit is no longer grounds to claim persecution under asylum rules.
This rule change reverses a previous immigration board ruling in 2018 that found an illegal alien had a legitimate asylum claim based on the fact that a drug cartel targeted his father’s business.
“The fact that a criminal group — such as a drug cartel, gang, or guerrilla force — targets a group of people does not, standing alone, transform those people into a particular social group,” Attorney General Barr argued.
Barr argued that fear of persecution means persecuted by society as a whole.
“Consistent with these prior decisions, I conclude that an alien’s family-based group will not constitute a particular social group unless it has been shown to be socially distinct in the eyes of its society, not just those of its alleged persecutor,” the attorney general’s decision reads.
“Because the record does not support the determination in this case that the immediate family of the respondent’s father constituted a particular social group, I reverse the Board’s conclusion to the contrary.”
This is the third step the administration took in a busy week to crack down on the flow of illegal aliens into America.
Last Friday the Supreme Court allowed President Trump to use military construction funds to build the wall while a lawsuit to stop wall construction plays out.
Then his administration announced an agreement between the United States and Guatemala to prevent illegal aliens to travel to America by forcing them to apply for asylum in Guatemala first.
But President Trump was not content to rest on the laurels of those wins.
Attorney General Barr’s follow-through will help convince Americans the President is serious about ending the illegal alien invasion and that could win Donald Trump – and by extension William Barr – another term in office.
