    Some are questioning the way Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials are handling arrests in Fairfax County after at least two men were arrested near a church shelter. Oscar Ramirez said he had just left the hypothermia shelter at Rising Hope Mission Church on Russell Road in Alexandria, Virginia, when about a dozen ICE agents surround him and other Latino men. "'Stop right there. Stop right there. Stop right there. Stay by the wall, where we can see your hands,'" the agents said, according to Ramirez. The group of men had left the shelter about 6:45 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 8...

    An undocumented immigrant is taking refuge at a church in Denver while she fights to remain in the country. Jeanette Vizguerra, a mother of four, was scheduled to check in with Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents Wednesday morning. She wanted to extend the stay on her deportation order, which expired last week, while she applies for a special visa. It was denied. She now faces separation from her American-born children, the youngest of whom is just 6. Vizguerra’s attorney appeared in court for her, saying she probably would have been taken into custody if she appeared. She is now taking...

    Jurist Twenty ^ | February 8, 2017
    The US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled 2-1 Tuesday that immigrants who are caught entering the US illegally have no right to legal representation in an expedited hearing. A law passed in 1996 allows Customs and Border Protection officers to use a process of "expedited removal" to remove immigrants who are caught within 100 miles of the border without valid documentation. Immigrants who are subject to expedited removal are not given a lawyer, nor do they receive a trial. The appeals court upheld the deportation of a Mexican immigrant who was returned to his country the day...

    Agents from the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosive arrested 31-year-old Oscar Fredy Garcia last week near Los Fresnos, Texas, during the failed purchase of an M-203 grenade launcher, court records revealed.

During the meeting, Garcia gave the undercover agent $300 as a down payment. Another ATF agent wrote in the criminal complaint that Garcia revealed he was purchasing the weapons...

    US immigration officials have detained a 23-year-old man from Washington state, who was authorized to remain in the country under a program established by the Obama administration. The man, Daniel Ramirez Medina, has twice been granted deferred action and employment authorization under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, his lawyers said. The program, announced in 2012, is meant to temporarily shield qualified individuals from deportation. The case raises questions about what it could mean for Dreamers, undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children. Ramirez came to the US from Mexico when he was 7...

The grassroots protest has seemingly been organized by word of mouth and across Latinx social media channels. “One of our delivery men who’s Latino told our kitchen about it, and then it...

    Immigration: What a difference an election makes. When President Obama was in the White House, Democrats were crowing about the historic number of illegal immigrants he was deporting each year. Now, every arrest of an illegal immigrant is a cause for protests. When President Trump's Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly announced on Monday that Immigration and Customs Enforcement had arrested 680 illegals — 75% of whom are convicted criminals — the left had another emotional breakdown. The enforcement actions were called "sweeping" and part of an "immigration crackdown" under Trump. Pro-immigration groups said the "level of intimidation seems new." Senate...

    Even if President Trump can’t convince the courts to approve his extreme vetting executive order, he may have another tool at his disposal that would allow him to strip visas from some of the seven countries he’s trying to target, crackdown supporters say. A federal law says the government can stop issuing visas to countries that are deemed “uncooperative” because they refuse to take back their citizens when the U.S. tries to deport them. At least five of the seven countries Mr. Trump is targeting — Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia and Sudan — are already on that list, according to...

During the process, the DMV clerk asked Fitzpatrick if she wished to register to vote, telling her “it’s up to you.”

    The arrests of hundreds of immigrants last week marked the first large-scale raid under the Trump administration — and the crackdown was, by all indications, just the start of much more to come. The expansive executive order signed last month by President Donald Trump allows a significantly broader population of immigrants to be picked up for deportation. And Trump has signaled he has every intention of using that authority to carry out his campaign pledge to deport millions of foreigners from the United States. Immigration advocates say the stepped-up enforcement amounts to a new deportation dragnet that’s ensnaring otherwise law-abiding...

    Why should Americans feel obligated to open our borders for Muslims to move here en masse? Foreign nationals in foreign countries do not have U.S. Constitutional rights.

(Mandel, 408 U.S. at 762; see Plasencia, 459 U.S. at 32.) Beyond this fact, the president has plenary power over foreign affairs and this includes, under the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952, the power to suspend or impose restrictions on the entry of foreign nationals if he...

    STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Rumblings in the restaurant community over the weekend focused on a boycott potentially taking place on Thursday, Feb. 16, on behalf of the Mexican community. The effort purportedly will affect other industries as well. "Many Mexican [owned] stores are going to close and [Mexicans] are not going to work," said a healthcare worker who declined to give her name but lives in Tompkinsville and hails from Mexico. She will be showing up to her job that day but says her friends certainly are buzzing about it. "They are asked not to work, not to buy in...

    During Obama’s rein over 2.5 million illegal immigrants were deported, this number equates to half a million more than during the George W. Bush administration. Obama within many circles was labeled the “Deporter and Chief” ICE enforcement of this policy has been common place in many cities throughout Obama’s terms and never reported by the Mainstream Media. No video’s, no protests, no outrage and not a dissenting peep from the Democrats.

    TRENTON -- Democratic lawmakers will soon vote on a bill that would protect so-called sanctuary cities in the state from financial hits if President Donald Trump follows through with a promise to cut funding to them. State Sen. Brian Stack, who represents Union City, sponsored the legislation (S2007) that would require the state dole out grants to any municipality or county that has its federal dollars cut for being a sanctuary for unauthorized immigrants.
