Bernie Sanders Calls for Border Camps to End Catch-and-Release of Migrants…(4…)

Sen. Bernie Sanders used a Fox News town hall event to urge federal agencies to detain Central American migrants pending their fast-track asylum hearings.

The plan would end the catch-and-release practices which are indirectly funding the Central American migration.

“We have a problem at the border, a serious problem … We need the proper legal processes at the border so that these issues can be adjudicated to determine whether or not people or should be entitled to asylum,” Sanders said April 15.

When asked where the migrants could be kept prior to their asylum hearings, Sanders responded by saying, “What about building proper facilities for them right now? That can be done right on the border.”

In March almost 100,000 migrants were released to live in the United States prior to their asylum hearings, many of which are being scheduled for 2024 or 2025. This release process allows the migrants to find jobs, repay their smuggling fees, and then decide whether to send their earnings home or to smuggle their wives and children into the United States.

The government needs more immigration judges to quickly process asylum claims by migrants, Sanders said. “You’re coming into the country? Are you really fleeing violence or is it another reason?’ You need to have many, many more judges to expedite the process,” Sanders stated.

However, Sanders pitched himself to mainstream voters who oppose the migration and to left-wing progressives who support the migration.

While arguing against the massive inflow of economic migrants, he also described the migrants as fleeing violence — even though the migrants are leaving the comparative safety of Mexico to find better jobs in the United States. “We are now seeing desperate people fleeing violence and misery … with little children walking a thousand miles,” he said.
