PRESIDENT OBAMAâ€™S plan to expedite deportation cases could trigger â€śdevastatingâ€ť delays for asylum seekers hoping to start a new life in the U.S., lawyers said.
The Presidentâ€™s policy means immigrants with criminal records are Boutique slated to see a judge before anyone else.
Those who fled abuse or torture in their homeland â€• and need a green card or work permit to find a job,moncler nantes hooded down coat Cheap Moncler Jack, or have relatives join them â€• seem to moncler outlet be getting shoved to the back of the line.
The eventual impact in New York could be significant, since the cityâ€™s Immigration Court moncler jacke has more than 40,000 deportation and asylum cases pending. The court took on 10,moncler moka coat Cheap Moncl,355 asylum applications in fiscal year 2010.
An indication of how long the delays could be comes from Baltimore, where the Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Justice Department this month started a six-week, pilot-program review of deportation cases.
For example, a 27-year-old Eritrean man, identified only as Biniam, says he fled forced military service and fears torture if he returns home. A Dec. 13 hearing on his asylum application
has been postponed by two and a half years â€• until May 2014.
â€śHe himself was very unhappy,â€ť said the manâ€™s lawyer,moncler nantes hooded down coat Cheap Moncler Jackets Outlet Online (13), Jason Dzubow. â€śYou canâ€™t really make him feel moncler outlet USA better about it. Itâ€™s a designer outlet online very long delay.â€ť
Obama administration officials have pegged the 300,000-case review as a way to focus resources on removing dangerous criminals while allowing some undocumented immigrants â€• such as college students or those related to American citizens â€• to stay temporarily.
In November, the feds told Homeland Security lawyers nationwide to begin flagging all new deportation cases, closing some and sending those deemed high priority to a judge.
The feds have started reviewing cases already on the docket in courts in Baltimore and Denver. They have not yet decided how to expand the review nationwide.
The Justice Departmentâ€™s Executive Office for Immigration Review said rescheduling of cases like Biniamâ€™s is necessary to give Homeland Security lawyers time moncler men vest to review files.
Dzubow, who has a blog called The Asylumist, said delays are especially difficult for immigrants seeking asylum since the chance to sponsor a child or spouse who may also be in danger at home is put off. Getting a work permit is also stalled.
â€śThe harm is pretty severe,â€ť he said. â€śI donâ€™t think itâ€™s an exaggeration when I say itâ€™s devastating. People do become very despondent when that happens.â€ť
