The sheriff, Ross Markirimi issued a memo specifically ordering his deputies not to cooperate with ICE. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) had issued a detainer request to the sheriff’s department asking...

    The city won’t keep personal records from future applicants for its immigrant-friendly municipal ID cards, even as it has been temporarily blocked from destroying more than 900,000 current cardholders’ records. Mayoral spokeswoman Rosemary Boeglin said Wednesday the city would continue verifying but no longer retain copies of passports, birth certificates, educational records and other documents submitted by new applicants for IDNYC cards. The cards are available to any New York City resident but were aimed particularly at those without other forms of ID, including the estimated 500,000 immigrants living illegally in the city. The fate of cardholders’ documents has become...

    City Council passed a resolution today reaffirming its commitment to keeping the five boroughs a safe haven for all people, regardless of their legal status—”despite President-elect Donald Trump‘s senseless threats” to deport up to 3 million undocumented immigrants he claims are criminals. City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, Brooklyn Councilmen Brad Lander and Carlos Menchaca—all members of the dominant Progressive Caucus—introduced the resolution. Mark-Viverito said the city has been at the forefront of providing services to recent arrivals from foreign shores “despite the lack of immigration reform on a national level.” “Anti-immigration rhetoric from the president-elect has many in the city’s...

    The rhetoric on immigration during the presidential campaign season has struck fear into the hearts of many foreign-born families, and a new network of Minnesota churches is mobilizing to respond. The Lutheran Church of the Redeemer on St. Paul’s Dale Street already maintains 22 shelter beds for the homeless in its basement, where families with no other place to go often spend the night on a temporary basis. The Rev. James Erlandson said those beds may soon serve a different purpose: offering sanctuary to those facing deportation. “That’s a moral stand that we’ve taken,” Erlandson said. “We want to say: ‘Don’t increase...

She also said the university will continue admitting qualified students regardless of their immigration status and offering qualified undocumented students the in-state tuition rate, as state law requires. Herbst stopped short of declaring UConn a "sanctuary campus" as colleges including Wesleyan University...

    Under the presidency of Barack Obama, border patrol agents have been diverted from their duty of securing the borders from border violators, gangs, and cartels that traffic in drugs and even human beings. U.S. border patrol agents have, instead, become uniformed baby sitters. That’s according to Border Patrol Chief Mark Morgan who came to U.S. Customs and Border Protection after a 30-year miltary career that included FBI operations in Iraq and leading the agency’s global command for anti-terrorism and border security operations. In a testimony to the Senate Homeland Security Committee he gave lawmakers the disturbing details on what’s going...

    Some 175 immigrants were approved for citizenship even though their names weren’t properly run through the FBI’s name-check databases, potentially missing red flags that may have disqualified them from naturalization, the Obama administration admitted this weekend. Homeland Security officials blamed computer code for the problem, which affected about 15,000 applications in total. The problem was significant enough that the government halted all naturalization ceremonies already in the pipeline and banned U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officers from approving new citizenship applications beginning on Nov. 29, when officials acknowledged the problem in an internal email that was later obtained by House...

"If you want to take on a forward-leaning state that is prepared to defend its rights and interests, come at us," Becerra, a 12-term Democratic congressman from Los Angeles, told reporters

    Hispanics, who for more than a decade insisted they were the key to American politics, are now grappling with a life on the outside — stunned that a Republican managed to capture the White House without winning at least a third of their support. Immigrant rights advocates insist that Latinos did turn out in record numbers, and say they voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Clinton, doubting major media exit polls that showed President-elect Donald Trump captured some 29 percent nationally. But that leaves another conundrum: If Republicans can win without Hispanic support, that could sap the negotiating power Latinos have claimed...

    Obama Administration Stiff-Arms Lawmakers Questioning Secret Refugee Deal By Melissa Jacobs Published December 01, 2016. Nearly 2,500 refugees from terrorism hotspots around the world are bound for the U.S. after being rejected by Australia, but not even top lawmakers can get answers about who they are. In an unprecedented move, the U.S. State Department has classified details on refugees to be resettled in America via a secret deal made with Australia. The bi-lateral agreement, which Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull called a “one-off,” involves 2,465 people currently being held in Papua New Guinea and Nauru who will now be transferred...

    Two years ago the Obama administration sought out to tackle a "crisis" that involved minors seeking out "human smugglers" to help with transportation across the U.S. - Mexico border. So, with a swipe of the pen, Obama signed an executive order allowing minors of certain Central American countries to flee to the U.S. under a "refugee/parole program." Two years later, there's just one problem: 70% of the people admitted under the program are actually adults. According to MRC TV, official data from the State Department indicates that of the 1,600 aliens that have traveled to the U.S. under the CAM...

    In the immediate aftermath of the election, mayors from some of America's largest cities told Donald Trump that they would not comply with any of his planned efforts to shut down their so-called sanctuary cities and they would not enforce federal immigration law. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said his city is “not going to sacrifice a half million people who live among us" by turning them over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Chicago Mayor and former Barack Obama chief of staff, Rahm Emmanuel reassured illegal immigrants that despite their post-election anxieties “you are safe in Chicago.”...
  • U.S. Workplace English Rules Discriminatory, Foreign Language Demands Aren’t

    Requiring employees in the United States to speak a foreign language is not discriminatory but forcing them to speak English violates federal law under a sweeping order issued by the Obama administration to crack down on “national origin discrimination” in the workplace. The government’s new enforcement guidelines state that bilingual requirements don’t meet discrimination claims under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act but English-only rules do because they’re restrictive language policies. The administration asserts that the new rules, which cover a broad range of scenarios that could get employers in trouble, were created because the American workforce is “increasingly...

    Border Patrol agents have been reduced to “professional child care providers” for illegal immigrants, warming burritos and babysitting the families and unaccompanied children who are surging across the border at an increasing rate, the agents’ frustrated chief told Congress on Wednesday. Chief Mark Morgan, who was tapped to lead the agency in June, said he has had to pull hundreds of his agents from patrolling against drugs and illegal border crossers in Arizona and California and shipped them to Texas, where they would be manning what amounts to day care holding centers, stocking baby powder and placing requisition orders for...

    While surveillance helicopters were grounded in Texas, the head of Customs and Border Protection called the flights critical to “countering illegal immigration” from Mexico. Records bear that out: A government report credited Operation Phalanx with apprehending 110,000 illegal border crossers. CBP Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske stated in a Nov. 16 letter that Phalanx “provided tangible benefits to border security.” His letter to the Department of Defense was sent two days before it was revealed that CBP’s parent agency, the Department of Homeland Security, had quietly halted border surveillance flights in Texas’ Laredo district.

    Mexico's ambassador to the U.S. is warning President-elect Trump that building a wall on the southwestern U.S. border would hurt the environment. "We fear that there is going to be consequences regarding environmental issues," Carlos Manuel Sada Solana, Mexico's ambassador to the U.S., said in an interview with the Arizona Republic . . . Sada on Wednesday warned that if the Trump administration forces Mexico to pay for the border wall by trying to tax remittances, there are "legal issues" at stake. "[I]f that is one of the alternatives, we will find out what we have to do in that...
