    U.S. authorities have agreed to stop pressuring undocumented immigrants in Southern California to sign off on their own deportations under a legal settlement that may later allow some deportees to return from Mexico to seek U.S. legal residency, advocacy groups said on Wednesday. The deal reached between the American Civil Liberties Union and federal officials stems from a lawsuit brought last year on behalf of other immigration rights groups and about 10 immigrants who accepted so-called "voluntary returns" to Mexico. snip The settlement is limited in scope as most of reforms agreed to by U.S. immigration officials apply only in...

    As part of a legal settlement that will allow some illegal immigrants who deported themselves from Southern California to return to the United States, the federal government has agreed to advertise the settlement on various Mexican and Spanish-language media outlets. The ACLU filed a class-action lawsuit last year on behalf of eleven illegal immigrants who deported themselves. The settlement reached on Wednesday will only cover "longtime California residents with relatives who are U.S. citizens and... young migrants whose parents brought them into the country illegally" who deported themselves between 2009 and 2013. An ACLU official has indicated that there were...

    An appeals court in Germany has ruled that a family court's decision to keep legal custody of four children away from their parents, Dirk and Petra Wunderlich, was wrong, and ordered that complete custody be returned to the family. However, the court maintained that homeschooling endangers children and they should go to school. "We have won custody and we are glad about that," Dirk said in a statement released by Virginia-based Home School Legal Defense Association, which has been assisting the Wunderlich family since their children were taken on Aug. 29, 2013. The court said taking the children away was...

    Of all the arguments made in the long and contentious debate over immigration reform, the one heard most often, from all sides, is that our immigration system is "broken." President Obama, John Boehner, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, Marco Rubio, Chuck Schumer, John McCain, Dick Durbin — just about every politician who has ever weighed in on the issue has said it. The only problem is, our immigration system is not broken. The part of the system that lets people into the United States is working — not without flaws, of course, but successfully managing the country's immigration needs every day....

There, she raised six children, all U.S. citizens.In July 2013, Mendoza, who has a history of mental health issues, was arrested for shoplifting at a pharmacy near her home.

    exican officials have deported more than 13,000 of the 14,000 undocumented, unaccompanied minors who have been caught at Mexico’s southern border, a rate significantly higher than in the United States, according to government sources familiar with the situation. Additionally, Mexican authorities have deported more than 64,000 of the estimated 69,000 adults that have been detained along their southern border this year. Those numbers stand in stark contrast to the deportation of minor immigrants from the United States: None of the more than 60,000 Central American minors detained this year have been deported. According to a Department of Homeland Security spokesman,...

The bill, announced by Republicans on Tuesday, would spend $659 million in new spending in response to the crisis on the border. Citing a friend, Pelosi said that “we cannot have deportation without representation,” and she praised the groups that were working to help the detained children. The hearing featured unattended minors, now living in the United States, who complained about how...

    Remember when former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, the consummate “moderate Republican,” shocked everyone by calling immigration an “act of love?” It looks like he’s changed his mind. On Thursday, he called for nearly all of the 50,000-plus immigrants in limbo on our Southwest border to be sent home. That is, “except for those deserving few who may demonstrate a true case for asylum.” Deserving few? Someone should ask Bush which of the children fleeing impoverished and violent countries (where they have a 1 in 15 chance of being murdered) like Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras “deserve” to be sent home....

    The illegal immigrant situation at our southern border is more than just a national crisis. It’s part of the greatest conspiracy in world history—a purposeful attempt to create catastrophe, overwhelm the system, and force the American people to make a dreadfully wrong decision under duress. Obama wants our good-hearted Christian nation to see women, children, and families begging for help, begging to live the “American Dream.” He wants immigrants to be in the worst possible shape after a long journey from Central America—starving, injured, diseased—in such terrible shape our hearts break and we agree to take them all in....

Obama is like an arsonist who sets fires to help rescue people from burning buildings. He's asked Congress for $2 billion to deal with a child refugee crisis of his own making, money that could have gone to seal the border instead of having Border Patrol agents acting as glorified baby-sitters by cooking, cleaning and even doing laundry.

    Everybody on the Left, and Brit Hume at Fox, has tried to blame Bush for the 2008 law which contained a little-known requirement preventing the fast deportation of kids. Not true. Biden was behind it. He secretly and sinisterly perverted what was supposed to be a standard renewal of a Bill Clinton sex trafficking law that had nothing to do with illegal immigration, in order to help create the very situation we now have. In other words, he added a loophole specifically to flood the country with new, young, undeportable, future Democrat voters.

    The White House is planning to back off its request for legal authority to swiftly deport thousands of children who have streamed through the U.S. in recent weeks, congressional sources told the Associated Press, a change it hopes will ease passage of a $2 billion emergency spending request to cope with the influx. Some of the child migrants make the dangerous trip alone, but others are accompanied by parents, usually their mothers. When Obama formally asks Congress for more than $2 billion in emergency spending Tuesday to deal with the border crisis, the request will not be accompanied by the...

This figure is up from 13 deportations for the same period last year. The main reasons for deportations are people not having valid residence visas or being involved in crime.

Despite committing what both a judge and the Home Office described as “a serious breach of trust”, Harnault Hospice Kassi convinced an immigration tribunal that his removal would breach his right to family life. The ruling is the latest in a growing number of cases of foreign-born criminals using human rights laws to prevent their removal from Britain.

The Obama administration has deported nearly two-million undocumented immigrants, surpassing the rate of deportations under President George W. Bush. Some immigrants who have been deported in recent years have children in the United States, meaning many...

The consequences of this shift from laws to whims, if not reined in, will fundamentally transform the country in ways we cannot predict or allow. The problem of Congress passing and presidents...

On President Barack Obama's orders, Johnson is conducting a politically charged review of U.S. deportation policy. The potential change could shield tens of thousands of immigrants now removed each year solely because of repeated immigration violations, such as re-entering the country after being deported. The change would fall short of deportation curbs demanded by activists frustrated by congressional inaction on immigration legislation. The possible move was confirmed by two...

It urges Obama to shield undocumented immigrants who would “likely benefit from near-term congressional action on immigration” from deportation and grant them the ability to work in the United States. “Suspending the deportation of these individuals promotes the...

We've had people deported who probably should've been allowed to stay for being guilty of much less than the charges Bieber faces. That said, can you imagine a scene like this happening to him?We could...

    Website glitches aside, President Obama’s new health-care law also is causing consternation among many Latinos over the possibility that signing up for the Affordable Care Act could get family members deported. “It’s a very real barrier,” say Daniel Zingale, vice president of the California Endowment, a Los Angeles nonprofit that promotes the law among Latinos. “Families are worried about being deported and divided by having any official interaction with the government.” The fear that’s keeping many of the 10.2 million Latinos eligible for the Affordable Care Act, often called Obamacare, from buying the mandated insurance is common among families of...

    The [Romeike] family arrived in the US in 2008 and settled in Tennessee. In 2010 a state court granted their request for asylum but two years later the Obama administration called for a review and a higher court overturned the decision. The Romeikes' only hope of staying in the US now rests with the Supreme Court which still hasn't decided whether to hear their appeal.

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Dozens of protesters surrounded a bus believed to be filled with immigrants slated for deportation at the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office in San Francisco, a protest organizer said Thursday. The protesters included dozens of undocumented immigrants and immigrants’ rights advocates who rallied for the expansion of a national movement to pressure President Barack Obama to halt immigrant deportations, according to Jon Rodney, a spokesman for the California Immigrant Policy Center. “We are not going to wait for Congress anymore. We are not going to wait for Obama. This is a humanitarian crisis, two...

    Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says that over the past year the Obama Administration has exercised what she calls “prosecutorial discretion” in allowing 430,000 self-declared illegal aliens to stay in the United States without any worry that her department—which is charged by law with enforcing the immigration law—will take action against them. Napolitano calls this non-enforcement of the law “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” (DACA). Under the program, the administration considers anyone who had not yet turned sixteen when they first entered the United States illegally, or first overstayed a visa, to be a “childhood arrival.” … “In just its...

    Allen and Debra VanHoozer are mourning the loss of their child, 24-year-old Heather, after an illegal immigrant who was not deported by U.S. authorities after a series of run-ins with law enforcement. The Mexican national was allowed to stay in the U.S. after numerous drug arrests, resulting in him allegedly killing the young woman by operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated. U.S. authorities claim they do not routinely deport illegal aliens for marijuana offenses; apparently they do not routinely deport people for being in the U.S. illegally, either. The VanHoozer family is now set to face the accused killer of...

    by John HillStand With ArizonaOnce again, a stark reminder of how America's failure to carry out interior enforcement against illegal aliens is at least as critical as our wide open border.U.S. Border Patrol agents say they have detained an illegal alien who's racked up 37 criminal convictions in the United States. "Due to the suspect’s numerous criminal convictions, he was processed for an Administrative Removal and will be removed to Mexico," said the announcement from Customs and Border Patrol. Police in Rochester, N.Y. arrested the man on Saturday, July 20. They called the Border Patrol for assistance after the suspect gave three...

As an officer drove Marco Alejandro Alatorre, 28, to the Lew Sterrett Justice Center, the man pleaded with them for a second chance for his “mistake,” police said. “Are you going to deport me?” Alatorre said, according to police. “I’ve already been deported once.” snip Alatorre told the officers he was initially looking for his wife because he believed she is cheating on him. Instead, he spotted his old...

    A letter signed by 27 members of Congress asks Attorney General Eric Holder to grant asylum to the Romeikes, a German family that fled to the United States after their government threatened to take their kids away from them because they homeschooled. "A decision to deny the Romeikes the opportunity to educate their children freely is a decision to abandon our commitment to freedom," the letter argues. "Doing so would put America alongside those countries that believe children belong to the community or state." The Romeikes recently lost a case in the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in which they...
