Donald Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign figures to be a close race that will come down to a handful a key states.
One issue could swing them all into the Trump 2020 camp.
And William Barr is gearing up for the one fight that could win Donald Trump re-election.
Much like in 2016, immigration will be the central issue in the 2020 election.
The President intends to show the American people he is making progress ending the illegal immigration crisis at the Southern Border.
But the union that represents immigration judges is standing in the way of the administration’s plans to speed up deportations of illegal aliens.
And Attorney General William Barr is asking a federal panel to end the union’s exclusive representation.
The Daily Caller reports:
The Trump administration asked a federal panel to revoke the exclusive right of a public sector union to represent immigration judges in collective bargaining Friday.
The union, the National Association of Immigration Judges (NAIJ), has been at odds with the administration over substantive policy directives and the independence of the immigration courts.
Federal law defines management officials as “any individual employed by an agency in a position the duties and responsibilities of which require or authorize the individual to formulate, determine, or influence the policies of the agency.” The Department of Justice told the Federal Labor Relations Authority (FLRA) that immigration judges qualify as management officials and therefore cannot be members of a bargaining unit.
“It appears that this is the same tactics that the department used many years ago unsuccessfully in an effort to destroy the effectiveness of the union,” the NAIJ president, Judge Ashley Tabaddor, told BuzzFeed News.
The union opposed a whole host of Trump immigration agenda items such as the “remain in Mexico” policy where illegal aliens must stay in Mexico while awaiting their asylum case to play out as opposed to being released into the interior of America.
Government unions are run by bosses who are Democrat Party activists.
The union that represents immigration judges fighting to block Trump’s agenda is part of an overall Democrat effort to portray Trump as an ineffectual failure.
And no issue is more important to that effort than immigration.
