Rosa María Hernández was born in Mexico but has lived in the US since she was three months old. She was being taken from the Texas border city of Laredo to Corpus Christi for a gallbladder operation, travelling in an ambulance with a relative who is a US citizen. As they drove through an inland Border Patrol station about 60 miles east of the frontier...

    Behind the scenes on an ICE Air deportation flight. Alexandria, Louisiana - The men shuffle in a line across a lonely tarmac, one by one. Chains around their ankles clank with each step, a steady beat punctuating the engines' roar. Some men walk in sneakers without laces. Some sport navy blue prison-issue shoes. One wears work boots, still stained with paint. This may be the last time they touch US soil. The Boeing 737 beside them is bound for Guatemala City. In about 30 minutes, the screening process is over and 116 passengers have boarded the plane — first men,...

It’s the first lawsuit in the nation filed jointly by an employer and a labor union on behalf of DACA beneficiary employees, according to the county. There were 1,740 DACA recipients...

    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....

    Under a phase-out plan announced by President Donald Trump last month, over 150,000 people covered by the Obama-era DACA program were given the chance to submit renewals. Tens of thousands of young people eligible for renewed protection from deportation had yet to submit their applications hours before a Trump administration deadline Thursday night. The administration was finalizing details of an immigration wish list that could jeopardize a long-term fix. Under a phase-out plan announced by the president last month, more than 150,000 young people covered by the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program whose permits were set to expire...

    Diana Montelongo came to the United States as a 6-year-old from Mexico, brought by her parents in search of a better education. Now a graduate of UC Berkeley, Montelongo teaches math in Natomas to middle school students. The day after the 2016 election, she decided to share her story. “I came into the classroom and students were crying and hugging each other,” Montelongo recalled. “There were students that had to be sent home because they were afraid their parents were not going to be there when they returned.” Montelongo, 23, is one of about 5,000 educators working in California schools...

    About 100 young people gathered on the lawn of East High School in Wichita on Friday for a student-led rally in support of a program that protects children who were brought to the United States illegally from being deported. Carrying signs and shouting “Build more bridges, not more walls,” the high-schoolers said they wanted to show support for the legal shield known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. Earlier this month, the Trump administration announced it would end the program, leaving Congress a six-month window of time to try to save it. “We are here because we have...

    Newsweek ^ | September 21, 2017 | By Graham Lanktree
    The Trump administration is drafting a new policy to quickly deport more than 150,000 child migrants from Central America who arrived alone in the U.S. illegally, creating a new class of undocumented migrants. The Department of Justice and Homeland Security is drawing up a policy proposal in a series of memos, according to two sources with knowledge of the internal debate who spoke to the Miami Herald. As it stands, the plan would allow for teens and children who arrived in the U.S. illegally by themselves to be put on a fast track to deportation when they turn 18. Most...

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Thursday appealed a judge's ruling that halted the abrupt deportation of 1,400 Iraqi nationals nationwide, including 114 from Metro Detroit. Nearly all of the Iraqi nationals, who are now waiting to learn their fates in detention centers, have outstanding and, in many cases, long-dormant deportation orders stemming from prior criminal convictions. "The criminal history of these aliens includes convictions for homicide, rape, aggravated assault, drug trafficking, sex assault and many other types of offenses," Acting ICE Director Thomas D. Homan said in a statement after the deportation sweeps. Each of the detainees had been...

    Rasmea Odeh was deported Tuesday. The 70-year-old Palestinian immigrant, whose U.S. citizenship was revoked by Immigration and Customs Enforcement for not disclosing having served time as a prisoner in Israel, didn’t cry until the end, only after ICE refused her huge crowd of supporters entry into the airport. Before that, Odeh was staunchly defiant, the etched lines of her set countenance only occasionally twitching during a three-hour O’Hare Airport send-off for the political activist who became symbolic of a cause — Palestine liberation — her case gaining notoriety worldwide. “Up until this very moment, I didn’t believe they will throw...

    Mexico has pledged to help undocumented immigrant youth living in the United States transition to life in the Latin American country in response to Donald Trump’s decision to end DACA. The Mexican government will create programs that provide mental health services, offer financial aid and facilitate the transfer of education credits, according to Foreign Relations Secretary Luis Videgaray. Officials also plan to create a job recruitment program for recent arrivals. “With each ‘dreamer’ who returns to Mexico, Mexico wins,” Videgaray said. “What is relevant is not which country wins here. What is relevant here is what the ‘dreamers’ want.” As...

    For some time now we’ve been covering the curious trend of illegal immigrants fleeing the United States (or more specifically, President Trump) and going to Canada. Many of them pass through a very unofficial point of entry in Upstate New York. Up until now, Canada has tried to paint a brave face on this situation, talking about how everyone is welcome and even setting up entry facilities for them. (Here’s how you can help get them some heated trailers to see them on their way.) Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been one of their biggest cheerleaders.But it seems...

    A federal judge is expected to order the first known deported DREAMer to be allowed to return to the U.S. to make his case about why he should be able to stay in the country. Judge Gonzalo Curiel, of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, has said he wants a speedy trial for Juan Manuel Montes, the 23-year-old who was formally part of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Montes was arrested by Border Patrol agents in February 2017 after he was caught illegally entering the U.S., according to the Department of Homeland Security....
