Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nationalreview.com: “Barr Blocks Some Asylum Seekers From Release on Bond | National Review”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Attorney General William Barr on Tuesday reversed a ruling that allowed migrants to be released on bond who had crossed the southern border illegally and then established they had “credible fear” of returning to their home countries.

“I conclude that such aliens remain ineligible for bond, whether they are arriving at the border or are apprehended in the United States,” Barr wrote in his opinion.

Barr’s move leaves the decision up to the Department of Homeland Security of whether individual immigrants who crossed the border illegally and later claimed asylum should be temporarily released. The change scraps a 2005 immigration court ruling allowing bond hearings for such migrants.

Immigration lawyers and immigrant rights advocates had pushed for the release on bond of immigrants who demonstrated credible fear, arguing that it is not in the interest of the U.S. to detain migrants who have shown they have a legitimate case for asylum.

The new policy does not apply to migrant children, either alone or with their families, or those applying to enter the country at a port of entry, and will take effect in 90 days.
