You! Out! Now!

Hey All,

This is a NY Times article printed the February 20, 2006, about the difficulties in making sure that those seeking asylum in the U.S. are given an opportunity to go before an immigration official. The conflict comes at a time when the U.S. government is seeking to curb illegal immigrants from coming into the U.S. This, however, puts a strain on border patrol individuals who at time feel compelled to "look the other way" by not allowing illegal immigrants a chance to seek asylum and are instead immediately "expedited" deportation.
