Wait a minute. This is a failure of the judicial branch, not the executive branch or the legislative branch.
We all know that each branch has its quirks, but I don't see how generalizing it as liberalism is going to help. What the legislative branch NEEDS to do is to create new laws for illegal immigrants, as well as legal immigrants. They need to be held to the same standards as citizens.
For whatever reason, the judge used his discretion to allow self deportation. I can't really say that's liberalism. To me that seems more like a loophole. But lawmakers are More-Than-Welcome to close that loophole.
Then the judge would have to follow the law.
