Judge wants illegal immigrants released from ‘deplorable’ facilities

The invasion of the southern United States last summer by tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children and families lured by the Obama administration’s immigration policies continues to play havoc from coast to coast.

Citing “deplorable” conditions, U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee ruled Friday that the federal government to show why an order she plans to issue to release illegal immigrants rounded up during the influx should not be implemented, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Gee, who assumed office on Jan. 4, 2010, is an Obama appointee.

There are estimated 1,700 parents and children being held at three detention facilities — two in Texas that are run by private companies, and one in Pennsylvania run by a county government.

Gee said the Texas facilities were substandard, and gave the administration until Aug. 3 to respond.

“We are disappointed with the court’s decision and are reviewing it in consultation with the Department of Justice,” a spokeswoman for the Department of Homeland Security said in a statement to the Los Angeles Times.

Fox News reported:

Last year, tens of thousands of women and unaccompanied minors from Central America arrived at the Southwest border, with many believing a rumor that unaccompanied children and single parents with at least one child would be allowed to stay.

More than 68,000 of them were apprehended and detained while officials decided whether they had a right to stay.

Many were being released and told to appear at immigration offices until the administration eventually opened new detention centers.

In her 25-page opinion, Gee found “widespread and deplorable conditions in the holding cells of Border Patrol stations.”

The order she plans to issue would give the government 90 days to release the immigrants.

New York-based immigration lawyer Bryan Johnson said the ruling should extend to even families who were deported.

“Given the court’s ruling that family detention is unlawful, all of the mothers and children who were removed as a result of family detention should be immediately allowed back into the United States to apply for asylum or special immigrant juvenile status,” he said, the Times reported.

The revolving door never stops turning.
