Overwhelmed U.S. courts are giving illegal aliens up to three years to show up for immigration hearings after they’ve been released in the U.S. and the court dates will only increase further into the future.
The courts are buried under a massive backlog due to the sharp increase in illegal immigration according to the AP and considering that the 90% of illegals who miss their court dates are rarely prosecuted anyway, the U.S. has effectively established a de facto amnesty program which will only ensure that more illegal immigrants cross into America.
“For many immigrants, the delays in the court system work in their favor because they know they have so long before their cases are resolved,” reported the AP.
This situation “is and will continue to be something of a magnitude unlike anything we have ever seen,” according to Justice Department official Lauren Alder Reid who spoke to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Many of the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who have been crossing America’s southern border in the past few months are purposely surrendering to Border Patrol because they know they will be sheltered, fed, transported deeper into the U.S. and ultimately released with a court date so far into the future that it doesn’t really matter.
“They know they are going to be processed and released and they are free to go wherever they want to go in the United States and the likelihood of them ever showing up for their court date is slim to none,” Stu Harris of the National Border Patrol Council Local 1929 told Infowars. “Even if they did show up to their court date, what we’re going to start seeing is what we call the ‘anchor babies’ because these court dates are being set from what I understand so far down the road that these people are going to come here, settle in, some of them are going to have children, and those citizens are now United States citizens.”
