    A United States District Judge has halted the deportation of more than 90 Somali nationals — 60 of which are convicted criminals — back to Somalia following a lawsuit alleging abuse by federal immigration officials. In a ruling this week, a District Judge stopped about 92 Somali nationals from being deported after a class-action lawsuit was filed claiming federal immigration officials mistreated the group of Somalis on a previous deportation effort that was never fully executed. On Dec. 7, the group of Somali illegal aliens and convicted criminals were on their way to Somalia from Louisiana when they stopped in...

    A DACA recipient, formerly press secretary to Bernie Sanders, is now on hunger strike and could be deported after being arrested on Friday. A shame this didn’t happen the first time. Erika Andiola held a sit-in protest at Senator Chuck Schumer and Representative Carlos Curbelo’s offices. She and six other Dreamers were arrested for “unlawful entry” as they refused to leave when the building closed. The protesters are calling themselves the #Dream7, and are demanding a Clean DREAM Act be passed on December 22. They are refusing to comply with law enforcement in an attempt to prolong their time in...

    Friday morning our Commander-in-Chief gave an address at the graduation for the FBI National Academy. And in it he had a message for the viciously violent mostly foreign gang known as MS-13. President Trump said, “To any member of MS-13 listening, I have a message for you: We will find you. We will arrest you. We will jail you. We will throw you the hell out of the country.” He continued, saying, “I mean, somehow, I like it better than jail. Jail we have to take care of them. Who the hell wants to take care of them.

    The U.S. government historically rejects most asylum claims. Over a five-year period ending in September 2016, the U.S. received about 267,000 asylum claims and granted 46,000. It has granted asylum in recent years to a number of Mexican journalists. But Eduardo Beckett, Gutierrez's lawyer, accused the U.S. of turning a blind eye to corruption and violence in Mexico, and blamed the Trump administration for changing how it deals with asylum seekers. "There is no more humanity," Beckett said. "The new tactic is, we'll pressure you, we'll keep you detained, in hopes you'll give up."... After receiving what his advocates called...

    The government’s efforts to deport 92 Somali nationals — including some who lived in Georgia and Minnesota — did not go as planned this week, when the flight encountered some snags in Senegal and returned to the U.S. with all on board. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement released statement Saturday, saying relief flight crew members were “unable to get sufficient rest due to issues with their hotel in Dakar.” “The aircraft, including the detainees and crew on board, remained parked at the airport to allow the relief crew time to rest,” ICE said in its statement. “During this time, the...

    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...

    The Trump administration is trying to strip citizenship away from four Somalis who allegedly lied in the process of using the Diversity Visa Program.“For decades, the American people have begged and pleaded with their government for a lawful system of immigration that serves the national interest—a system that has as its foremost priorities their safety, their jobs, and their well-being,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement Monday. “The current immigration system is easily abused by fraudsters and nefarious actors, and that’s certainly true of the Diversity Immigrant Visa Program.”The Diversity Visa Program has come under criticism after a...

    Obama was blocking cooperation between ICE agents and their ICE attorney colleagues in an effort to obstruct our immigration laws. The Obama administration may have been playing to lose in deportation cases, a watchdog group has claimed. The Immigration Reform Law Institute said a 2013 memo that has been recently unearthed shows that during the Obama years, immigration investigators suffered interference from above. “The document confirms what the House Judiciary (Committee) had been hearing for years: that Obama was blocking cooperation between ICE agents and their ICE attorney colleagues in an effort to obstruct our immigration laws,” said Dale L....

    AUGUSTA (WGME) -- Gov. Paul LePage said Monday that he may remove two Maine sheriffs for not cooperating with federal immigration officials — an apparent shot at one sheriff who announced last week that he wouldn’t hold federal inmates past their release dates. The Republican governor told conservative radio host Laura Ingraham that he would be issuing an executive order soon because Maine has “a couple of sheriffs who say they’re not going to work” with federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. “So, there’s likelihood that you’re going to be hearing some stories about some sheriffs being removed from their...

    Like many high school seniors, Indira Marquez Robles thinks a lot about her future. She knows what college she wants to go to (Bryn Mawr) and what she wants to be when she grows up (an immigration attorney) but she also doesn't know if she'll be at risk for deportation in the next six months. Marquez Robles is a beneficiary of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. Because the 17-year-old Houstonian's DACA will expire on March 21, 2018, she doesn’t have any option but to wait and see if Congress passes legislation that would grant her some form of...

    NEW YORK—The U.S. southern border wall was not a topic of discussion between the U.S. and Mexico’s delegations at the United Nations. Mexico’s Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray Caso told reporters, “It [the border wall] was theme that was never discussed between Mexico and the United States. It was never discussed.” Videgaray Caso, however, did however give his thoughts on the current debate happening in the U.S. over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) policy that could affect scores of Mexicans living in the U.S. He claimed that sending such individuals back to Mexico would be his country’s gain and...

    Wal-Mart Stores Inc, Target Corp and PepsiCo Inc on Wednesday joined an expanded group of nearly 800 companies calling in a letter for U.S. legislation to protect immigrants brought into the country illegally by their parents from deportation, according to organizer FWD.us. A group of businesses less than half the size and weighted toward technology companies sent a similar letter in August, before President Donald Trump said he would end the program. Both letters were spearheaded by FWD.us, a pro-immigration group co-founded by Facebook Inc Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg.

    Undocumented immigrants and their supporters yelled, “Shame!” in front of the White House and got arrested in front of Trump Tower in New York City on Tuesday as the Trump administration said it would end an Obama-era program that has shielded nearly 800,000 young people from deportation. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced an end to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, saying the program was unconstitutional but giving lawmakers in Congress six months to pass legislation to help undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as young children.

    I have argued the illegal immigration discussion on many levels. I have outlined the attacks on our country’s sovereignty. I am sure that millions of you have read on this news site as well as other media organs how the DACA program is unconstitutional, and an extreme executive overreach. Hopefully, you read something that I wrote on this divisive issue three months ago: “I’m a DREAMER TOO!”I am a dreamer. Yes, and I have a dream that the elected officials commissioned to enforce our immigration laws will stop being baited by the sob stories of young illegal aliens who were...

Are they in the clear to go to some of these evacuation centers? Do they have to show ID?” The Republican governor promptly dispelled her irresponsible...

    Marco Antonio Reyes Alvarez, the undocumented Ecuadorian immigrant who has found sanctuary from deportation in a church downtown, might face a prolonged stay at First & Summerfield due to a new directive that limits the ability of members of Congress to halt removal orders. Federal legislators have regularly introduced “private immigration bills,” which, if passed, would grant permanent legal residency to a person who entered the country illegally. More importantly, while the private immigration bills were being considered, federal agents at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) used to hold off on deporting the individual. If a U.S. senator was...

    SAN FRANCISCO — The much-publicized saga of Highland Hospital nurse Maria Sanchez and her husband Eusebio, who for the last 15 years had sought to obtain green cards and remain in the U.S. legally, ended with hugs and tears Wednesday night before the undocumented couple boarded a flight bound for their native Mexico. They had booked their flight Tuesday after receiving word that a final attempt to delay their deportation had been denied by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The couple is now prohibited from returning to the U.S. for a decade, when they can begin the process all over...

    WASHINGTON — Before President Donald Trump’s hardline immigration policies took effect early this year, thousands of undocumented residents were given a break from being deported. Government immigration officials would hold off if the illegal immigrants were married to American citizens or longtime residents of the U.S., gainfully employed and had committed no crime other than being in the country illegally. It was, said immigration lawyer Heather Prendegast of Cleveland, the “government’s attempt to be nice.” The cordiality ended when Trump officials instructed Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to get tough on illegal immigration, according to a study by the...

    U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein called Thursday for the federal government to reverse the deportation of an Oakland nurse and her husband, saying their removal after more than two decades in the country revealed the “cruel and arbitrary nature” of President Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration. Responding to a front-page Chronicle story about the couple — who plan to leave for Mexico on Tuesday with their 12-year-old son, while leaving behind three older daughters who have legal status — Feinstein’s office set up a meeting Thursday between the California Democrat and the family to discuss their plight. “These are the kind...
