    An illegal immigration activist who became a poster-child for the open borders lobby is now facing deportation to Mexico. Activist Jessica Colotl has been notified by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that her protected status under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program had been revoked, according to FOX 5 Atlanta. Colotl’s attorney gave FOX 5 a document signed by officials with ICE which stated that her revoked DACA status was “Due to respondent’s criminal history,” citing that “she is an enforcement priority…” The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is now requesting that an immigration judge deport...

    WASHINGTON – Young immigrants brought to the U.S. as children and now here illegally can “rest easy,” President Donald Trump said Friday, telling the “dreamers” they will not be targets for deportation under1 his immigration policies. Trump, in a wide-ranging interview with the Associated Press, said his administration is “not after the dreamers, we are after the criminals.”

    President Trump said Friday that undocumented immigrants who were brought illegally to the U.S. as children should "rest easy" and not fear deportation under his administration's efforts to ramp up immigration enforcement. The president told The Associated Press in an interview that his calls to crack down on illegal immigration are focused primarily on removing criminals from the U.S. and are not geared toward the so-called Dreamers. Trump's comments came on the heels of a lawsuit filed Tuesday alleging that a recipient of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), which allows undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children...

    Juan Manuel Montes, a Mexican national who is protected under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals act, is suing the Trump administration after being deported to Mexico in February. According to the Los Angeles Times, Montes was deported to Mexico without explanation on February 17, despite the fact that his DACA status and work permit were valid. He was approached by Border Patrol agents in Calexico, California and prohibited from getting his wallet from a friend’s car so that he could prove his status, USA Today reports. Three hours later, he was deported to Mexico. If these claims are...

    FULL TITLE: 22-year-old DREAMer detained and told she would be deported after holding anti-Trump press conference is released from ICE custody The attorney for a young woman who was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement after speaking at a news conference about immigration says she's been released from custody on Friday, according to ABC News. Daniela Vargas, 22, was arrested by ICE last week and informed that she would be deported back to her native Argentina without a hearing. Abigail Peterson, her lawyer, said that authorities informed her that Vargas' case will be handled as a 'visa waiver overstay,' which...

    Relying upon a technique rarely seen in political journalism these days, anonymous and nebulously described sources, BuzzFeed, hot off its tour de force in releasing the Trump “dossier” now has another scoop? Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA — which Trump said he would rescind on day one — is rough political terrain for the White House. Conservative media and elected officials see it as a rare hardline immigration promise the administration hasn’t kept, and the White House is kicking it down the road for as long as officials can. But according to two sources who regularly speak with...

    The governors of Mexico have written to an American court to express support for a Seattle-area man who has been detained for weeks despite his participation in a federal program to protect people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children. The National Conference of Governors of Mexico sent the letter to U.S. Magistrate Judge James Donohue, who is overseeing the case of Daniel Ramirez Medina. Ramirez, a 23-year-old Mexican, was arrested Feb. 10 in a Seattle suburb by immigration agents who initially arrived to detain his father, identified as a previously deported felon.

She was later detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers. Daniela Vargas, 22, was detained in Jackson, Miss. shortly after speaking at the press conference, The Clarion-Ledger reports. Vargas, an Argentine national who arrived in the U.S. at age 7, was previously protected under President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Her DACA status, however, recently expired. Vargas’ attorney Abby Peterson told The Clarion-Ledger...

    Univision anchor Jorge Ramos used the recent occasion of President Trump saying that “DREAMers” should be treated with a “heart” to advocate that all 11 million illegal aliens should be legalized while the president has both chambers of Congress under his party’s control. He made the comments on CNN with Anderson Cooper Thursday. “In the shadow of the expansion of immigration enforcement,” Cooper asked, “the Trump administration, they’re leaving in place the protections they say were put in place for ‘DREAMers’ and documented parents of U.S. citizens. What do you make of that decision? Does that, do you think that...

    It depends on how one defines “keep.” Donald Trump argued against Barack Obama’s unilateral actions on immigration, including the DAPA and expanded DACA programs, both of which got put into limbo by federal courts. When asked in last week’s press conference about DACA and the so-called “dreamers” — children brought into the country illegally by their parents — Trump replied that his immigration policy would show “great heart” in those cases. Today, CBS reports that Trump’s new immigration policy keeps DACA in place. Or perhaps better put, it doesn’t explicitly eliminate it: A source with knowledge of DHS planning said...

    Lawyers for detained “Dreamer” Daniel Ramirez Medina went to court Friday seeking his immediate release and calling his arrest in a Des Moines apartment unconstitutional. A federal magistrate ruled he wasn’t empowered to free Ramirez before an immigration judge gets a chance to weigh in. But in a case that he said had far-reaching implications about federal policy regarding Dreamers, and which has drawn the concern of the Mexican government and immigration activists nationwide, Chief Magistrate Judge James Donohue took the unusual step of requiring that a bond hearing in immigration court be held within a week. U.S. District Court...

    hile President Trump wavered Thursday on whether he will stop shielding from deportation people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, his aides have identified at least two ways to quietly end their protections without his fingerprints. An executive order has already been drafted to end the program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, that allows hundreds of thousands of the immigrants to live and work openly in the U.S. Trump used that legal mechanism to great fanfare to expand deportation authority and restrict entry to the U.S. But with the president showing less willingness to sign such an...

    In a flurry of tweets Thursday afternoon, U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-San Antonio, accused President Donald Trump of putting a "mass deportation plan" into place. Castro's tweetstorm came shortly after an intense Trump press conference, during which the president discussed his electoral college win, Russia, former National Security Adviser Mike Flynn and the media, among other topics. Castro railed on questions that remain after a meeting with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. "After attending the ICE meeting it's hard not to conclude that President Trump has started his mass deportation plan," Castro tweeted. "Only dreamers with no offenses,...

    SEATTLE (AP) — A Seattle area man detained by immigration agents despite his participation in a federal program to protect those brought to the U.S. illegally as children admitted to having gang ties, the U.S. Justice Department said in court documents filed Thursday. Ramirez "stated 'no, not no more,' when asked if he is or has been involved with any gang activity," the government said in documents filed in U.S. District Court. Lawyers for Daniel Ramirez Medina, 23, called the allegation "wholly fabricated." The court documents also said Ramirez, who is Mexican and arrived in the U.S. at age 7,...

    The Trump administration says the hundreds of undocumented immigrants it picked up in a nationwide sweep represent the worst of the worst, but a quarter of those arrested had no criminal record. And now Reuters reports that at least one person still detained had been granted legal permission to stay and work in the U.S. under the Deferred Action for Child Arrivals program, or DACA. Over 680 people were arrested last week as part of a five-day “enforcement surge” carried out by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ICE says the raids targeted criminals, but the agency has failed to release...

    I have waited for this moment for two years. US Senator Jeff Sessions has become our chief law enforcement officer. In his own right he will stop illegal immigration and right our country’s national interests in full. Sessions would have been a great Senate Majority Leader. But Attorney General is just fine. What a fight it has been. Of course, the Democrats wasted themselves trying to stop Education Secretary/Reformer Betsy DeVos. They could not stall our nation’s top law enforcement officer next. My pro-immigration enforcement colleagues here in California can’t wait for Attorney General Sessions to get busy. Since...

Trump told senators he is open to Gang of 8 immigration bill, per Manchin. Lamar brought it up during meeting and need for reform— Seung Min Kim (@seungminkim) February 9, 2017 “Open” sounds very bad indeed, enough so for Trump superfan Ann Coulter to quip, “I wish he’d go back to attacking Nordstrom.” Then came this clarification from the White House: White House says Manchin brought up Gang, Trump told him it was fine for them to get...
