Assign Asylum officers to every Sector

Having Asylum officers in every Sector would allow credible fear cases and the like to be processed more efficiently while saving money avoiding detention costs.

Asylum officers can be on call within their respective sectors just like every other agency to respond to their relative cases. If an agency apprehends a subject that claims credible fear, an Asylum duty officer can be contacted and they can respond to interview and make determinations to approve, deny, or submit the cases to an immigration judge on the spot. Either way we would eliminate having to house, feed, clothe, and provide medical care to the subjects placed in detention centers pending their asylum case.

On the enforcement side, this would eliminate undocumented aliens from bonding out of the detention centers while their asylum case is pending never to be seen again.
