Clinton-era Secretary of State Madeleine Albright has slammed U.S. efforts to secure the border, telling the BBC that the immigration policy of President Donald J. Trump “makes it very hard for America to tell Europeans … to be more humane”
Hawking her new propaganda book entitled Fascism: A Warning on the Andrew Marr Show, the former U.S. Secretary of State said she has been “very troubled” by the Trump administration’s moves to end the ‘catch and release’ of illegals into American communities while they await immigration hearings.

America’s former ambassador told the BBC that detentions at the U.S. border “remind one of things that happen in fascist countries”, adding that “there’s plenty of room for people in the United States and there are a lot of companies now saying that we need them”.
When people ask her opinion “about what’s happening to Europe on the same issue”, Albright said she thinks the President’s “offensive” crackdown on illegal immigration “makes it very hard for America to tell Europeans what to do if we can’t figure out how to be more humane ourselves”.
Asked on the BBC whether the ‘fascism’ of her book title describes Trump, she denied it but said: “I do think he’s the most undemocratic President in modern American history and that troubles me.” That’s probably for the best, given that President Trump is a Republican. Why would he try to be like a Democrat?
Marr pointed out: “There is another way of looking at this which is that you have an idiosyncratic, outspoken, very popular President, a well-tried, long-tested democratic system which is robust, and an opposition which simply doesn’t get it.”
In response, Albright told the BBC journalist that “fascism is hard to define”, alleging that “a fascist leader is someone who identifies himself with one group, tribal of some kind, in order to really isolate and insulate the people who are disagreed with”.
But she added: “Ultimately a fascist leader uses violence to get what he wants, so no, I do not think that Trump is a fascist leader but I do think his attitude towards freedom of speech and the role of the media, and his disregards for institutions worries me.”
The war mongering leftist who served under President Bill Clinton has whined about Trump every chance she gets, last month alleging in a discussion with the Washington Post that the President’s immigration policy and language referring to illegal alien invaders was “un-American and appalling”.
She may end up being even more upset, as a law signed by Bill Clinton shows that illegal aliens can be deported without a hearing.
A 1996 statute (see details below) permits immigration authorities to deport people without a hearing, a lawyer or a right of appeal under certain conditions, a process known as expedited removal.
Under current policy, the Department of Homeland Security criteria for expedited removals apply to illegal alien invaders found within 100 miles of the border and within 14 days of entering the country. The statute imposes no geographic limit and allows for expedited removals up to two years after a migrant has entered the country, raising the possibility that the Trump administration may use this power more aggressively.
Can an illegal alien invader avoid expedited removal?
Yes, by lying and saying they need asylum, which many are doing.
When that happens, officers at the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services — not a judge — will review cases to decide whether applicants have a credible fear of persecution back home. If so, they are placed in the immigration court system for a fuller consideration of their request. If officers decided that asylum seekers have no credible fear and should be deported, they still have a right to appeal that denial to an immigration judge, who has seven days to decide.
Upon reviewing Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigration Responsibility Act, it states:
“(c) REMOVAL OF ALIENS INADMISSIBLE ON SECURITY AND RELATED GROUNDS.-
“(1) REMOVAL WITHOUT FURTHER HEARING.-If an immigration officer or an immigration judge suspects that an arriving alien may be inadmissible under subparagraph (A) (other than clause (ii)), (B), or (C) of section 212(a)(3), the officer or judge shall-
“(A) order the alien removed, subject to review under paragraph (2);
“(B) report the order of removal to the Attorney General; and
“(C) not conduct any further inquiry or hearing until ordered by the Attorney General.
