  • MSNBC’s Maddow uses Obama-era photos of immigrant children to slam Trump

    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow used powerful images on Tuesday of immigrant children sleeping on a floor to make a point that the Trump administration has “deliberately” hurt families -- but a pair of key photos used by the liberal host were actually from the Obama era. “In terms of permanent damage done to humans, in terms of the severity of the damage deliberately done to humans, the Trump administration, no matter what else they do, they will never ever get out from the shadow of the fact that they really did, as a policy and a deliberate practice, they really did take little kids away from their moms and dads,” she said to open "The Rachel Maddow...

    Judges appointed by President Donald Trump’s deputies are filling up the immigration courts, and they have reversed the anti-deportation trend caused by President Barack Obama’s judges. “Nearly two-thirds (64%) were appointed since FY 2017,” said a report by pro-migration research group TRAC Report Inc., Trump has appointed more than 310 judges to the immigration courts that are run by the Department of Justice. Many judges are being appointed as Congress and the administration expand the courts’ ability to process the wave of asylum claims from blue-collar Central American migrants.
  • BREAKING: 9th Circuit Appeals Court Sides With Trump on Deportations

    by Joe Callen A federal appeals court ruled late Monday that the Trump administration may deport hundreds of thousands of illegal alienswho previously received temporary protected status for "humanitarian" reasons, in some cases decades past the event that spurred the temporary reprieves. The 2-1 ruling by a panel of the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned an injunction protecting aliens from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan from being deported pending litigation. The Trump administration ended their protections, saying their home countries were now safe for them. The decision affects 300,000 non-citizens here illegally -- and a staggering 200,000 of...

    From the moment he descended that escalator in 2015, President Donald Trump has been a most unconventional politician. After a lifetime in the private sector, he sought big, dramatic results where career politicians would rather “own the issue” than solve the problem. As Trump said in his inaugural address, “Now arrives the hour of action.” Conquering the world of Manhattan real estate was one thing, but few believed he could achieve quick results in the slow-moving swamp in Washington. On the president’s signature issue of immigration, however, the results have been dramatic. Last week Bloomberg reported that, despite a massive...

    A federal court has blocked an order from President Donald Trump attempting to keep illegal immigrants' census numbers from apportioning congressional districts. An unanimous three-judge panel for the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York ruled that the executive memorandum from Trump breaks the executive branch's "constitutional responsibility to count the whole number of persons in each State and to apportion members of the House of Representatives among the States according to their respective numbers." The court decision prevents the Department of Commerce from reporting any information related to illegal immigrants in its census numbers that could...

    A federal court ruled on Thursday that President Trump's order to exclude undocumented immigrants from census numbers for apportioning congressional districts is unlawful. A unanimous three-judge panel for the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York said in its decision that Trump's executive memorandum violates the executive branch's "constitutional responsibility to count the whole number of persons in each State and to apportion members of the House of Representatives among the States according to their respective numbers." The ruling prohibits the Department of Commerce from reporting any information regarding undocumented immigrants in its census count that could...

    GREENSBORO, N.C. – Nineteen foreign nationals face federal charges in U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina for illegally voting in the 2016 federal elections, according to federal charges publicly announced on Wednesday. These charges are the latest indictments to result from an ongoing years-long federal criminal investigation being conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Raleigh office. A federal grand jury in Wilmington charged seven foreign nationals on August 31 on federal felony charges including falsely claiming U.S. citizenship or making false statements on voter registration application, and with misdemeanor charges...

    A judge in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia ruled yesterday that Customs and Border Protection agents were not qualified to perform screenings for asylum applicants arriving at the U.S. and Mexico border. While this may not have a lot of impact in the short term, it could end up reversing some of the White House’s initiatives in controlling migration once the traffic across the border returns to normal... The Trump administration argued that designated CBP employees are trained comparably to asylum officers at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, another agency within the Homeland Security Department....

    Last year, an extraordinary thing happened: for the first time in recorded history, astronomers and astrophysicists observed an interstellar object enter and leave our solar system. Over the years, they’ve documented plenty of comets, asteroids, and other cosmic bodies but all have been gravitationally bound to an orbit within our star system. This object, named ‘Oumuamua, came from outside our system, from a star or molecular cloud tens or even hundreds of millions of light-years away, and then left.

    The government’s legal immigration agency said Monday that it will give strict scrutiny to DACA recipients who try to use a backdoor path to citizenship, as the Department of Homeland Security finalized plans for restarting the program after a Supreme Court decision this summer. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services said illegal immigrant “Dreamers” can obtain advance parole to travel outside the U.S. — which offers the indirect path to citizenship — only if they have special circumstances such as an urgent national security reason or the need for a medical procedure that can be performed only outside the U.S. That...

    A man recently released from the Eloy Immigration Detention Center was arrested last week after causing several crashes along Interstate 10 and fleeing a traffic stop, officials said. Carlos Martinez Baldenegro, 38, was arrested Thursday morning after a chase on I-10 that ended near Casa Grande, the Arizona Department of Public Safety said in a news release. Martinez was booked into Pinal County Jail and faces charges of driving under the influence, felony flight, reckless driving and three counts of criminal damage, the department said... Martinez was released from the Eloy Immigration Detention Center about a month ago after spending...

    New York Times ^ | August 18, 2020 | James Verini
    ... In the mid-1990s, the federal government introduced a policy of pushing undocumented migrants away from border cities and into increasingly remote locations. The policy persisted, and as it did, more people died. According to the Border Patrol, just under 8,000 migrants have turned up dead on the Southern border since 1998. The real number is probably much higher, but even going by the Border Patrol’s estimates, that is a rate of about one migrant death per day, every day of the last 22 years. Slightly less than half of those deaths occur in southern Arizona, most in the Sonoran...
  • Joe Biden Would Likely Use a Familiar Tool—Executive Powers—to Reverse Trump Immigration Policies. The Democratic candidate has said he also would end some enforcement measures that predate President Trump

    President Trump has used his executive-branch authority to remake nearly every facet of the U.S. immigration system. If Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden is elected in November, he is expected to use many of those same levers to undo Mr. Trump’s changes and even end some immigration enforcement measures that have been in place for decades. Many of Mr. Biden’s policy plans would require legislation to enact—but immigration is an issue where the former vice president would have the ability to enact much of Democrats’ desired agenda through regulatory changes and other executive actions. Mr. Biden has also said he...

In a statement Tuesday, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva cited the pandemic and the county's undocumented immigrant community, saying the fear over possible deportation could hinder criminal investigations.

    The illegal immigrant mother Democrats used Wednesday as a case study of cruelty in President Trump’s policies was first deported during the Clinton administration, then flagged for deportation again under the Obama-Biden administration. Alejandra Juarez first sneaked into the U.S. in 1998, was caught at the border and was removed — the formal term for deportation — back to Mexico. She quickly sneaked back in in defiance of that order and would go on to marry a U.S. citizen and military member, remaining under the radar until a traffic stop in 2013 brought her to the attention of ICE, which...

    Democrat leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) promised a massive amnesty for illegal migrants during his brief speech at the Democrats’ virtual convention on Tuesday night. The ambitious proposal would lock in Democratic control of the federal government for many years and suppress wages in a flooded labor market for many years, so delivering many billions of extra profits to New York’s stock market. But Schumer presented his political, regional, and elitist power grab as a noble and generous gesture towards millions of foreigners seeking a place in this Nation of Americans:

    Since the Citizenship Amendment Act has come into effect, there has been a sudden spike in the number of Afghan Muslims and Rohingya Muslims, who are illegal immigrants in India, wanting to convert to Christianity so as to become eligible for Indian citizenship. According to a report by The Economic Times, the central agencies, aware of this development, have apprised the government that almost 25 such cases of Afghan Muslims converting to Christianity has come to the fore. Adib Ahmed Maxwell, who heads an Afghan church in south Delhi, told ET: “Post CAA, there has been a spurt in the...

    New trend is a marked change from the waves of Central American families in recent years; repeat crossings become popular after Covid-related change. Illegal crossings are back on the rise at the southern U.S. border after having plummeted at the start of the coronavirus pandemic, driven by a large increase in single adults from Mexico. It is a marked shift from the past five years, during which a surge of asylum-seeking families and children from Central America accounted for most of the people entering the U.S. without legal authorization and at times overwhelmed the immigration system.

    Only a handful of contact tracers working to slow COVID-19 in 125 communities near Chicago speak Spanish, despite significant Hispanic populations. Churches and advocacy groups in the Houston area are trying to convince immigrants to cooperate when health officials call. And in California, immigrants are being trained as contact tracers to ease mistrust. The crucial job of reaching people who test positive for the coronavirus and those they’ve come in contact with is proving especially difficult in immigrant communities because of language barriers, confusion and fear of the government. The failure of health departments across the U.S. to adequately investigate...
