Attorney General Bill Barr is throwing a roadblock into one of the methods used by illegal immigrants to get into the United States.

In a decision announced Tuesday, illegal immigrants who demonstrate a “credible fear” when apprehended trying to enter the U.S. will no longer be eligible to be released on bond, even if they have requested asylum, The Daily Caller reported.
Barr’s decision Tuesday, titled. Matter of M-S-, overrules a 2005 Board of Immigration Appeals decision and comes from a Department of Justice review in October 2018 of bond hearings for immigrants who are seeking asylum.

AG Barr Begins Fixing Court Loophole That Favors Illegal Immigrants Over Americans
Illegal aliens and asylum seekers have received more favorable treatment by the U.S. justice system than American citizens. For the first time, Trump's U.S. Attorney General William Barr has decided to change this.

The issue is pretrial release, bond.

For regular American citizens or non-citizens tried in state and federal criminal courts, bond is a decision made by a judge who considers issues of prior criminal record, public safety, ties to the community, factors surrounding the pending accusations, and the likelihood that the accused will return to court for trial, amongst other similarly relevant matters.
