  • Philly's 'undocumented' live in fear of deportation under Trump

    Philadelphia Inquirer ^ | May 23, 2017 | by The Inquirer Editorial Board
    It is not just irresponsible but ludicrous that Congress and the president would ignore the need for comprehensive immigration reform even as government agents round up and deport scores of the undocumented who deserve an avenue to legal residency in this country. In a special report titled “The Undocumented,” staff writer Luis Ferré Sadurni shared stories of immigrants who entered the country illegally or overstayed their visas and are now living in fear that any day might bring their arrest by the Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). These are men and women living otherwise law-abiding lives...

    Ramon Ruiz Ortiz of Moreno Valley went to San Bernardino’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office at 10 a.m. May 11 to interview for a green card giving him permanent residency. By 7 p.m., he’d been deported to Tijuana. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, officials said he applied using a false name and that he had been removed previously and then had returned here illegally, making him ineligible for a green card, according to ICE. Now, his family and an attorney representing the Mexican Consulate in San Bernardino are trying to figure out what happened to the man...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Supreme Court decisions in a half-dozen cases dealing with immigration over the next two months could reveal how the justices might evaluate Trump administration actions on immigration, especially stepped up deportations. Some of those cases could be decided as early as Monday, when the court is meeting to issue opinions in cases that were argued over the past six months. The outcomes could indicate whether the justices are retreating from long-standing decisions that give the president and Congress great discretion in dealing with immigration, and what role administration policies, including the proposed ban on visits to the...

    A Sunday “60 Minutes” report detailed the story of Roberto Beristain, an immigrant deported to Mexico after being in the U.S. for nearly 20 years. Family and friends of the Granger, Ind., business owner spoke with the CBS News program, expressing frustration that someone with no criminal record was separated from his wife and children, who are all American citizens. “It just feels wrong,” Kimberly Glowacki, a resident of the same town, told “60 Minutes.” Michelle Craig, who voted for President Trump, said she did so because Trump promised to deport dangerous criminals. "This is not the person he said...
  • Amid immigration setbacks, one Trump strategy seems to be working: Fear

    Washington Post ^ | April 30, 2017
    In many ways, President Trump’s attempts to implement his hard-line immigration policies have not gone very well in his first three months. His travel ban aimed at some Muslim-majority countries has been blocked by the courts, his U.S.-Mexico border wall has gone nowhere in Congress, and he has retreated, at least for now, on his vow to target illegal immigrants brought here as children. But one strategy that seems to be working well is fear. The number of migrants, legal and illegal, crossing into the United States has dropped markedly since Trump took office, while recent declines in the number...

    U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts took issue on Wednesday with the Trump administration's stance in an immigration case, saying it could make it too easy for the government to strip people of citizenship for lying about minor infractions. Roberts and other Supreme Court justices indicated support for a deported ethnic Serb immigrant named Divna Maslenjak over her bid to regain her U.S. citizenship after it was stripped because she falsely stated her husband had not served in the Bosnian Serb army in the 1990s after Yugoslavia's collapse. Roberts seemed particularly concerned that the government was asserting it could revoke citizenship...

    California State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Léon (D-Los Angeles) said last Tuesday that “half his family” was in the country illegally, using false documents, and eligible for deportation under President Trump’s new executive order against “sanctuary” jurisdictions. De Léon, who introduced the bill, made his remarks at a hearing in Sacramento on SB54, the bill to make California a “Sanctuary State.” He said (at 1:27:34 in the video that follows): … I can tell you half of my family would be eligible for deportation under [President Donald Trump’s] executive order, because if they got a false Social Security...

    The Obama administration left the government’s deportation force in disarray, according to a new report Thursday from the Homeland Security inspector general, which found deportation officers are so overloaded that they lose track of important cases, leaving illegal immigrants roaming communities when they could have been kicked out. The problem is so bad that officers may even be losing track of critical national security cases, the inspector general said. The surge of illegal immigrants under President Obama made the situation worse, adding hundreds of thousands of cases to the docket, even though officers weren’t given any new tools to help...

    USA Today reported Tuesday that an illegal immigrant protected by Barack Obama’s amnesty was deported in February after spending an evening with his girlfriend. However, a Department of Homeland Security spokesman told The Daily Caller that this story is false because Juan Manuel Montes Bojorquez did not receive amnesty and was caught climbing over a border fence when he was detained. The USA Today story said that Bojorquez, 23, was apprehended by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents while he was waiting for a car ride to pick him up. According to the article, he told the officers he left...

    PHOENIX -Marco Tulio Coss learned heartbreaking news for his family Wednesday afternoon. He walked out of ICE headquarters in downtown Phoenix knowing his days in the United States were numbered. Thirty to be exact. "I don't have a criminal record,” he said. “I'm clean." His story is like many others: He has been here for 18 years, he has no criminal history other than a minor traffic stop, and he works on a permit issued by the same department that has now decided to kick him out of the country. His scheduled deportation date is May 12 at 10 a.m....

    CINCINNATI -- A federal court has ruled against Maribel Trujillo, a Fairfield mother of four whose deportation local political and religious leaders rallied to oppose. A three-judge panel at Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals denied Trujillo's petition for an emergency stay of removal Tuesday afternoon, clearing the way for federal authorities to transport her back to Mexico. Trujillo's attorney Emily Brown said they decided not to appeal the full Sixth Circut; rather, Brown said she "(hopes) ICE will use its discretion to do the right thing and not deport (Trujillo)." Trujillo and Brown did file a motion to the Board...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions is warning undocumented immigrants in the United States of a new “Trump era” of stricter enforcement of the nation’s immigration laws, unveiling harsher punishments for those living in the country illegally. “For those that continue to seek improper and illegal entry into this country, be forewarned: This is a new era. This is the Trump era,” Sessions said in remarks to immigration officials in Arizona Tuesday. “The lawlessness, the abdication of the duty to enforce our immigration laws, and the catch and release practices of old are over.” Sessions told agents from the Customs and Border...

    Helen Beristain voted for Donald Trump even though she is married to an undocumented immigrant. In November, she thought Trump would deport only people with criminal records -- people he called "bad hombres" -- and that he would leave families intact. "I don't think ICE is out there to detain anyone and break families, no," Beristain told CNN affiliate WSBT in March, shortly after her husband, Roberto Beristain was detained by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement. In a statement to CNN, ICE said, "On April 4, 2017, officers with US Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO)...

    The Justice Department intends to expand and modernize the way it conducts deportation proceedings for criminals so that illegal immigrants are deported immediately after they finish prison sentences, officials announced Thursday. Currently, illegal immigrants who complete prison sentences can spend months held in Immigration and Customs Enforcement facilities as deportation hearings progress. The expansion of the department’s Institutional Hearing Program is meant to streamline the deportation process so that removal hearings occur while inmates are held in prison rather than after they are transferred to ICE facilities.

    We’re seeing a theme in media coverage of deportations this month and much of it centers around whether or not ICE should be arresting illegal immigrants in or around courthouse grounds. The New York Daily News tossed out another grenade in the debate this week and they employ the increasingly common tactic of finding someone they view as being relatively benign to pose as the face of the illegal immigrant community which is currently “under attack” by Donald Trump’s administration. The subject of this story is Floyel Stapleton, an illegal alien from the Caribbean who was recently arrested while...

    Cafes, churches and playing fields are quieter than usual, as undocumented immigrants lay low amid the crackdown United States, New York - With such slogans as "Resiste" and "No Deportaciones" emblazoned on the walls, there is little doubt that La Morada, a restaurant in a gritty district of New York, is more than your average taco-serving Mexican diner. Sure, their Oaxaca-style tortilla, mole sauce and steaming hot chocolate delight locals. But the Saavedra family that owns and runs the eatery sees itself as a Bronx bastion against a revived immigration crackdown under United States President Donald Trump. "There's obviously a...

    A Mexican man who entered the United States illegally almost 20 years ago is set to be deported on Friday, amid an uptick in detentions by immigration agents emboldened by President Donald Trump — whom the man’s own wife voted for. Roberto Beristain, 43, has been in the custody of US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers since he was detained on Feb. 6 in Indianapolis, department spokeswoman Leticia Zamarripa told BuzzFeed News. The Mexican national, who owns a steak restaurant in the Indiana town of Granger, arrived in the country in 1998 before being detained two years later and...

    Nearly half of Canadians want to deport people who are illegally crossing into Canada from the United States, an opinion polls shows. A similar number also disapprove of how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is handling the influx, according to the Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Monday. About 41 per cent of those polled said the border crossers could make Canada 'less safe', underlining the potential political risk for Trudeau's Liberal government. The increasing flow of hundreds of asylum-seekers of African and Middle Eastern origin from the United States in recent months has become a contentious issue in Canada.

    The Justice Department is preparing to send immigration judges to 12 cities around the country to expedite the deportation process for undocumented immigrants charged with crimes, Reuters reported on Friday. The judges will be temporarily reassigned to Baltimore; Los Angeles; Miami; New Orleans; New York; San Francisco; Bloomington, Minn.; El Paso, Texas; Harlingen, Texas; Imperial, Calif.; Omaha, Neb. and Phoenix, Ariz. Those cities have more than half of the country’s pending cases in which undocumented immigrants are facing criminal charges, Reuters reported. The number of judges that would be reassigned and the timeline are still being reviewed, according to Reuters....

    An illegal immigrant will be deported after admitting to raping a 15-year-old girl during a New Year’s Eve party. Leonel Jardines Martell, 23, pleaded guilty to statutory rape after performing a sex act on a minor during a party in 2014, the Gaston Gazette reported. At the time of the crime, Martell was celebrating his birthday when the victim arrived with a friend. The victim was younger than most at the party, where alcohol and marijuana were present.
