The Justice Department is proposing a new set of reforms to the United States’ immigration asylum system, citing the pervasive abuse of the system by illegal immigrants and its inability to resolve asylum claims in a reasonable timeframe.
The DOJ’s 161-page document proposing a wide range of reforms to the system was released Thursday. The reforms would create a new set of requirements for the processes utilized by immigration courts to resolve asylum claim, and would broadly make abuse of the system and reaching asylum claims more difficult.
The asylum system remains one of the most abused elements of the American immigration system. Illegal immigrants with dubious claims frequently use the byzantine nature of the nation’s immigration court systems to set up lengthy asylum processes, in many cases escaping into the country before authorities are cleared to begin deportation proceedings.
“This proposed rule is a critical and desperately needed correction to our long-abused asylum process, which is now the weakest link in our border security system,” said Jessica Vaughn of the Center for Immigration Studies.
Vaughn went on to break down the fundamental flaws of the asylum system, which essentially serves to give many human smugglers and illegal aliens a free card to enter the United States on the grounds of exaggerated persecution.
“It doesn’t matter how great a wall we have and how great a job the Border Patrol does if anyone literally can just walk up to or across the line, claim a fear of return and eventually get released into the country, receive a work permit, and game the immigration court system to be able to stay for years without fear of deportation, whether they actually apply for asylum or not.”
The new set of rules will be subject to a “public review” period for thirty days, after which the Department of Justice will nominally begin the process of implementing the reforms to the system.
Illegal Alien Arrested in the Beating, Torture, and Death of His Nine Year Old Son in Idaho
Erik Osuna is an illegal immigrant.
A man identified by prosecutors as an illegal alien has been arrested in the beating and torture of his own son, with the boy’s stepmother being charged with murder in his death.
Emrik Osuna, a nine year old boy, was discovered starved and covered with bruises at the residence of Erik Osuna-Gutierrez and Monique Osuna. First responders who were summoned to the Meridian, Idaho home later pronounced the boy dead.

Police reports indicate that Monique Osuna has admitted to police that she kicked her stepson in the groin and beat him with various household objects, among them a frying pan, a wooden spoon, a backscratcher, a belt, and even a dog leash. She’s being charged with murder, and Erik Osuna is being charged with felony injury to a child, infliction of great bodily harm and destruction of evidence in the abuse of the child.
The couple allegedly subjected the nine year old boy to a sickening regimen of continual child abuse, such as forcing him to exercise for hours, locking him into a closet, and feeding him starvation rations of water and rice for weeks. Prosecutors are alleging that Erik Osuna allowed the abuse to happen, and that the sick couple only called 911 hours after Emrik Osuna was in severe medical distress.
Idaho prosecutors have identified Erik Osuna as an illegal immigrant, pointing him out as a flight risk in pre-trial bond hearings in the case. They urged a judge to deny Osuna a bond because of his status as an illegal, arguing that he could attempt to flee because he doesn’t have many personal connections in the state.
Both Osunas are being held on $2 million bonds in the Idaho jail system, and neither have entered a plea in response to the charges. Their next court appearance is scheduled for September 17th.
