    OWENSBORO, Ky. – After their father was deported in late November, four Owensboro children will enter foster care unless their family finds a way to send them to Mexico. “I want us to go to Mexico, to be with our dad,” Cecily Cuahua, 10, said from her aunt’s living room in early December. Cecily’s three younger siblings quickly nodded in agreement. But sending the children to Mexico is no easy feat. They are American citizens. Their father, Antonio Cuahua, 35, was their sole caregiver and without him here to apply and pay for their immigration documents, the children’s relatives are...

    The Spokesman-Review ^ | December 14, 2017 | By Jonathan J. Cooper (AP)
    SACRAMENTO, Calif. – California, flush with cash from an expanding economy, would eventually spend $1 billion a year to provide health care to immigrants living in the state illegally under a proposal announced Wednesday by Democratic lawmakers. The proposal would eliminate legal residency requirements in California’s Medicaid program, known as Medi-Cal, as the state has already done for young people up to age 19. It’s part of $4.3 billion in new spending proposed by Assemblyman Phil Ting, a San Francisco Democrat who leads the budget committee. While federal funds cover at least half – and as much 95 percent –...

    My name is Jasmine Lopez, I’m 11 years old and I’m a U.S. citizen. If Congress doesn't take action now, I may not have my mom with me for the holidays. Why is this important for me? Because I’ve already experienced something close to losing my dad, and I don’t want that to happen ever again. I was born in Florida, but both my parents were born in Mexico and are living in the U.S. undocumented. Even though they were always careful when driving to work or to the grocery store, one day things got real for all of us....

    President Donald Trump’s base of supporters wants the federal government to shut down unless a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border is constructed as promised. A new Morning Consult/Politico poll shows that roughly 43 percent of Republican voters say they would like to see the GOP-led Congress stand firm on the border wall by shutting down the government unless the project is fully funded so that it can be quickly constructed. Americans were promised at Trump’s swearing-in that a border wall would be constructed on the southern border to stop illegal immigration and drug trafficking by a number of Mexican cartels....

    A Woodland mother fears her husband may be moved to Arizona and deported to Cambodia as early as this week, after an October immigration sweep that pulled 100 people off streets across the country. Forty-three-year-old Saerang Ye was on his way home from work as a mechanical engineer when he was picked up by ICE about a block from his home. He's been jailed at the Rio Cosumnes Correctional Facility ever since -- he and his family having little idea about what's going on with his case. Brought to the states when he was just 6, Ye lost any protection...

    During his presidential campaign, then-candidate Donald Trump had promised to “stop the massive inflow of refugees” in order to safeguard the country from terrorists. According to Fox News, only 3,108 refugees came to the U.S. in October and November. In the same period last year, under Barack Obama's reign, 18,300 refugees were admitted. That's a jaw-dropping decline of 83 percent.

    Illegal border crossing tumbled to a 45-year low and interior arrests of illegal immigrants soared in 2017, according to data released Tuesday that showed President Trump’s enforcement crackdown netted tangible results during his first year on the job. The numbers, released by the Department of Homeland Security, reflected a stunning turnaround from the nearly nonexistent interior enforcement of immigration laws under President Obama. U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported 310,531 apprehensions nationwide in fiscal 2017, which ended Sept. 30, a decline of 25 percent from a year earlier and the lowest level since 1971. Nearly all of the Border Patrol...

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) began physically testing the southwest border wall prototypes this week, according to a spokesperson for the department. Construction of eight wall prototypes in the San Diego sector were completed on Oct. 26. Six companies were chosen to build eight sample walls -- four made of concrete and four constructed of “other materials.” Last week, CBP officials began training, safety and security procedures, as well as scheduling to set up the testing. The physical testing will include attempts to scale and breach the prototypes. Officials will use items such as jackhammers, saws and hydraulic tools...

    NUEVO LAREDO, Mexico — It took nine days for Beatriz Morelos Casillas’ life to be completely upended. On July 23, Ms. Casillas — who goes by Betty — was stopped by an officer in Painesville, Ohio for a routine traffic citation. Because she was in the country without authorization, the mother of four was detained and slated for removal from the U.S. Just over a week later, Casillas was back in Mexico, a country she had not seen in nearly 20 years, with only her jeans and the shirt on her back — and no legal way to reunite with...

    SAN DIEGO -- The federal government, in the most complete statistical snapshot of immigration enforcement under President Trump, says Border Patrol arrests plunged to a 45-year low while arrests by deportation officers soared. The Border Patrol made 310,531 arrests during the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, a decline of 25 percent from 415,816 a year earlier and the lowest level since 1971. Despite the significant decline, arrests increased every month since May - largely families and unaccompanied children. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, whose officers pick up people for deportation away from the border, made 143,470 arrests, an increase of...

    Mystery solved? After Illinois Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez abruptly announced his retirement Tuesday and endorsed a successor without revealing his future political plans, Fox News has learned the outspoken immigration advocate will be testing the waters for a potential 2020 presidential bid. Few national political figures could be more ideologically opposed on the issue of immigration than President Trump – who wants a border wall and has fought to suspend immigration from some Muslim-majority countries – and Gutierrez, who blasted even the Obama administration over legal deportations.

    Federal District Court Judge Gonzalo P. Curiel (S. D. Cal.) consolidated three border wall lawsuits: "The Court GRANTS the parties’ joint motion to consolidate the [cases linked below] pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 42(a). The Court finds that this case, Case No. 17cv1215, and Case Nos. 17cv1873 & 17cv1911 share common questions of law and fact, Fed. R. Civ. P. 42(a), and that the time and effort saved by consolidation will outweigh “any inconvenience, delay, or expense that it would cause,” Huene v. United States, 743 F.2d 703, 704 (9th Cir. 1984)." 1.

    ... When parents are deported, children suffer. This is true for children who remain in the United States, separated from their deported parent(s), and for those who leave the country in order to preserve the family’s unity. Many go back and forth, interrupting their educational progress and the development of social attachments. Luis Zayas, dean and professor of social work at the University of Texas, Austin, has studied the mental health consequences facing children whose parents have been deported. His research has found that children who remain in the United States after a parent is deported experience “depression, possible conduct...

    President Trump used the massacre at a mosque in Egypt to renew his calls for a travel ban and “wall” on Friday afternoon. “Will be calling the President of Egypt in a short while to discuss the tragic terrorist attack, with so much loss of life. We have to get TOUGHER AND SMARTER than ever before, and we will. Need the WALL, need the BAN! God bless the people of Egypt,” he tweeted. The White House said Trump would be speaking with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi at 3 p.m. Earlier in the day, Trump called the carnage, which left...

    President Trump’s vision of a “big, beautiful” wall along the Mexican border may never be realized, and almost certainly not as a 2,000-mile physical structure spanning sea to sea. But in a systematic and less visible way, his administration is following a blueprint to reduce the number of foreigners living in the United States — those who are undocumented and those here legally — and overhaul the U.S. immigration system for generations to come. Across agencies and programs, federal officials are wielding executive authority to assemble a bureaucratic wall that could be more effective than any concrete and metal one....

    BIRMINGHAM, Alabama — In a policy interview here, Republican senatorial candidate Roy Moore advocated for the Trump administration to immediately deploy the U.S. military to fortify the U.S.-Mexico border while plans for a wall are being strategized. “I believe that we can stop illegal aliens from coming across our border within a matter of a week using the United States military to support the border patrol,” Moore stated. “That is not a violation of the Posse Comitatus Act. It has been done by numerous presidents.” “And then we have the money, as soon as possible we can build a wall...

It’s that time of the year when we communities come together, put family disputes aside and get in the holiday spirit. Unfortunately, this holiday season comes with a different taste for many as hundreds of Iowa families will eat their Thanksgiving meals with uncertainty, anxiety and fear. The lives of hundreds of families across our states are at risk thanks to Donald Trump’s draconian immigration policies. Many of your immigrant friends and...

    When Kathia Sotelo Calderon found out that the lump on her neck was thyroid cancer, she wondered how she’d pay for treatment. The 19-year-old undocumented immigrant from Mexico, who was brought to the U.S. by her parents when she was 7, had no health insurance. As a noncitizen, she didn’t think she was eligible for Medicaid, and she couldn’t buy a plan on the state or federal health care exchanges. While the 2010 Affordable Care Act substantially reduced the number of Americans without health insurance — from nearly 50 million in 2010 to 28.8 million in 2017, estimates from the...
