Pro-Migration Lawyers: Drunk-Driving Illegals Should Get Green Cards

Illegal immigrants who have two or more drunk-driving convictions should be allowed to stay in the United States, say pro-migration lawyers.

The demand came after Attorney General William Barr issued an October 25 legal directive, dubbed “Matter of CASTILLO-PEREZ, Respondent,” saying that immigration judges should reject legal pleas for green cards by illegals:

I hold that, when assessing an alien’s good moral character under section 101(f) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (“INA”), 8 U.S.C. § 1101(f), evidence of two or more convictions for driving under the influence during the relevant period establishes a rebuttable presumption that the alien lacked good moral character during that time.

Congress has required a showing of good moral character as a condition of eligibility for cancellation of removal. A person who consumes drugs or alcohol and then repeatedly gets behind the wheel of a vehicle while impaired demonstrates a character inconsistent with the Nation’s moral standards, because he places not only his life but the lives of innocents on the road in grave danger.

“Fabricated’ jurisprudence,’” responded lawyer Ira Kurzban. “AG Barr who may be in jail by the end of the impeachment process got one more shot in against immigrants.”

“Ah-ha! I see AG Barr dropped 2 decisions just before he called it a day to screw up further ability of immigrants to legalize status,!,” said immigration lawyer Nicolette Glazer. “2 DUIs are now “presumptively” = to lack of good moral character.”

Practical bottom line: long time residents who are placed in removal proceedings will not even have a chance to apply for relief if they have 2 or more DUIs in the 10 years preceding the master calendar on which the IJ asks “what relief is Resp. applying for? … Meaning of course that ppl will not be able to receive C10 work permits. Which of course is what Stephen Miller & cie is after. They want to prevent ppl from obtaining work permits to force self-deportation. Evil bast*rds.

Many illegals are convicted of drunk driving. For example, Breitbart News reported October 27 the death of two legal immigrants by an illegal who was let stay in the United States:

An illegal alien in the sanctuary state of Illinois is accused of killing two legal immigrants in a deadly drunk driving crash last week, law enforcement officials say.

Juan Rodea-Cruz, a 25-year-old illegal alien, is accused of killing 26-year-old Marko Boskovic, a legal immigrant from Serbia, and 25-year-old Laura Uribe, a legal immigrant from Colombia, in a drunk driving crash on October 20 while driving the wrong way down a highway in Clarendon Hills, Illinois.

Rodea-Cruz — whom the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency has requested custody of — was found with multiple open, unopened, and broken liquor bottles in his vehicle, according to the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office.

Long-term illegals who face deportation can ask a judge for “cancellation of removal.” If approved, the cancellation allows them to stay in the United States, to get a “c10” work permit, and also get green cards. But Barr’s rule will deny that benefit to migrants who have gotten two or more DUIs.
