  • Penn lawyer who defended immigrants could face her own deportation

    08/19/2018 8:11:41 PM PDT · by 11th_VA · 27 replies ^ | Aug 19, 2018
    After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 2015, Esperanza Franco headed south to the border, where she worked defending immigrants who faced deportation. Now she’s the one who might get kicked out of the country. Franco says her former employer’s mishandling of a work-visa application — she came here from Spain five years ago — has put her in danger of losing her legal status. She fears that in less than a month, she could end up being jailed in the same Arizona detention center where she has gone to visit clients. “I’m going through so much...

He reportedly had been living in the U.S. illegally for 12 years.

    A British writer for the New Yorker — who became a naturalized American citizen — announced that she plans to self-deport due to President Trump’s enforcement of federal immigration law. Rebecca Mead, a newly naturalized citizen in the U.S., wrote in the New Yorker that Trump’s enforcement of immigration has been influential in her decision to move back to her native England after arriving in New York about 30 years ago.

    Buying fresh vegetables for children, heating an apartment, using Medicaid to manage diabetes. Those are all legal means of support provided by the government for low-income residents of the United States. But a new rule in the works from the Trump administration would make it difficult, if not impossible, for immigrants who use those benefits to obtain green cards. **SNIP** The administration’s plan is based on the more than 100-year-old law of “public charge,” later defined by government guidance in 1999: A person who is very likely to become “primarily dependent” on government services cannot become a legal permanent resident....

    The federal judge who had ordered the government to restart the Obama-era DACA deportation amnesty in full backed off his decision Friday and said the government does not, after all, have to begin accepting brand new applications. Judge John D. Bates acknowledged the legal mess that’s arisen around DACA and said he didn’t want to make it worse, so he issued a partial stay of his own ruling. That means that while illegal immigrant “Dreamers” who already have had DACA protections can apply for renewals, no brand new applicants can apply to start the process. Judge Bates also delayed part...

    It’s a story that would have been all over the media if it had been a conservative, an anti-IRS activist, an NRA member, or any organization liberals think are right leaning. In early August, authorities raided a compound in New Mexico, where three women, a man, and 11 children were found in deplorable conditions. One child’s remains were also found. They were reportedly being trained by Siraj Wahhaj to commit school shootings. Siraj’s father, same name, was an unindicted conspirator of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. To make things more controversial, the judge in the case, Sarah Backus, granted...

    Outsourcing companies that obtain U.S. work visas to place foreign workers in U.S. companies have become a target for critics of the H-1B visa program, and a new lawsuit will likely add fuel to the fire. Indian outsourcing company HCL discriminates against non-Indian citizens in hiring and promotions, fires them at a higher rate than Indian workers, and games America’s visa system by gobbling up more H-1B visas than it can use, a new lawsuit by a former employee claims.

    For decades, Russia has suffered a brain and youth drain: According to federal statistics agency Rosstat, more than 300,000 people left the country in 2016. A recent survey conducted by the state-funded pollster VTsIOM shows that 1 out of 10 Russians want to leave the country. Notably, one out of four of those questioned in the poll could name a relative or acquaintance who had moved away from Russia in recent years. Young Russians were especially keen to move: Among those aged 18 to 24, almost one-third (31 percent) of respondents said they wanted to leave the country. VTsIOM said...

    It's quite simple: Some political relatives are more equal than others. Agenda-driven journalists love to exploit familial dysfunction when a prominent politician is conservative and his or her kinfolk espouse liberal views. When a vengeful offspring, sibling, cousin or distant relation wants to wreak havoc, instant fame and adoration are just a tweet or call away. The media schadenfreude over such bloody bloodline battles is thicker than California wildfire smoke. By contrast, relatives who openly challenge powerful Democrats are dismissed as gadflies and publicity hounds. Remember when Barack Obama's half-brother Malik criticized his younger sibling over his coddling of corrupt...
