Biden Admin to Consider Asylum for Illegal Aliens, Criminals
Posted On 10 May 2022
Attorney General Merrick Garland has ruled that judges considering asylum cases can take into consideration the mental health of criminals attempting to come into the country.
Under the Immigration and Nationality Act, illegal immigrants seeking entry into the country would be made ineligible for both asylum and withholding of removal if they have been convicted of a “particularly serious crime,” and pose a “danger to the community of the United States.”
In a decision handed down by Garland, judges considering these cases can now take into consideration the mental health of these immigrants in their rulings.
