Our country is currently facing a crisis of illegal immigration on our southern border.
Democrat-supported loopholes in our federal laws
have enabled roughly half-a-million illegal immigrant family members and minors from Central America to be released into the United States since 2014,
at unbelievably tremendous taxpayer expense.
While illegal aliens can only be held for a period of days or weeks,
it can take years to move their cases through the legal system to actually try to send them back to their home countries.
It is a ridiculous process.
For example, of the removal orders issued for unaccompanied alien children over a recent two-year period,
90% were done in absentia, that means they weren't there and they never showed up for their removal hearing.
