    Justice Neil Gorsuch provided the decisive vote Tuesday in a Supreme Court ruling striking down a key provision that made it easier to deport immigrants convicted of violent crimes, in a blow to the Trump administration. President Trump's Supreme Court pick has largely sided with the conservative members of the bench since his appointment, but sided with the liberal wing on Tuesday. The court said the part of the law in question is too vague to be enforced.

    Manuel Duran, [illegal alien with deport order dating from 2007] the reporter for Spanish-language media arrested this week while doing a live Internet video of a Memphis protest, has been transferred to an immigration detention center in Louisiana, his attorney said Friday. Duran is currently in the LaSalle ICE Processing Center, a privately-run detention center in Jena, Louisiana, said Christina Swatzell, a staff attorney with Latino Memphis who is representing Duran in the immigration case. Jena is about 300 miles south of Memphis and reachable in roughly six hours by car. Now that Duran has been taken into immigration custody,...

    As left-wing protesters gathered to rally against the government's planned deportation of illegal African job-seeking migrants, hundreds of residents from south Tel Aviv and activists from the grassroots Zionist organization Im Tirtzu staged a counter-demonstration in support of the deportation. The counter-demonstration was held in the memory of Esther Galili, a 70-year-old resident of southern Tel Aviv and a Holocaust survivor who was beaten to death by an illegal migrant exactly eight years ago on February 24, 2010. Activists held signs reading "Residents of South Tel Aviv also Deserve Human Rights" and "Illegal Migrants - not Refugees," and labelled the...

    WINSTON SALEM (AP/WNCN) - Authorities say a man accused of drunken driving in a fatal ambulance crash in North Carolina is subject to deportation pending the criminal case’s outcome. **SNIP** Police say Romero’s car hit the ambulance carrying a 3-year-old boy and his mother, causing it to overturn. Police found the ambulance overturned on the curb of U.S. 52 southbound near the Liberty Street exit around 1:15 a.m. Sunday, WFMY reported. The boy later died in a hospital. Three adults on the ambulance had minor injuries, according to the TV station.

    His family says he was so petrified of being deported that a minor traffic accident sent him to suicide. We may never know for certain. Now they are mourning his loss and getting out the message of what they say living in fear can do to a person. His friends called him 'Trippy', his name was Luis Castenada, a 40-year-old father of two originally from Guatemala. The story is he came, one of eight kids, as an undocumented immigrant to this country as a young boy. His story ended this past Friday night in the San Fernando Valley when he...

    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.
