AG William Barr Makes Major Immigration Reversal


With a surge in Central American immigrants arriving at the border seeking asylum, Attorney General William Barr has instructed immigration judges to deny bond hearings. This ruling, designed to discourage asylum seekers, would allow the administration to keep thousands in jail indefinitely.

The decision marks the first time Barr has used his position to overrule precedent-setting immigration court decisions. The US attorney general has this power because immigration courts are part of the Justice Department.
