    Wichita Eagle ^ | September 22, 2017 | By Suzanne Perez Tobias
    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...

    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...
  • Political activist Rasmea Odeh a symbol of deportation’s many faces

    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 The 70-year-old Palestinian immigrant, whose U.S. citizenship was revoked by Immigration and Customs Enforcement for not disclosing having served time as a prisoner in Israel, didn’t cry until the end, only after ICE refused her huge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...

The daughter of a hotel housekeeper and a welder, Garcia arrived in Southern California from Mexico at the age of 4. Garcia decided to become an attorney...

    The Department of Homeland Security announced that the US would impose sanctions on 4 countries for not accepting their nationals who have been deported from the United States. Cambodia, Eritrea, Guinea, and Sierra Leone will not be allowed to issue visas for various classes of individuals. The sanctions had been discussed for several months as the US is at odds with several countries over returning their nationals who entered the country illegally.  Fox News: “International law obligates each country to accept the return of its nationals ordered removed from the United States,” Acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke...

    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....

    NUEVO LAREDO, MEXICO -- Beatriz Morelos Casillas still can't believe that a few seconds changed her life forever. On July 23, she was driving home on Interstate 90 in Painesville when she saw that an Ohio Highway Patrol officer had pulled over a car. But on Tuesday, Aug. 1, everything changed. ICE agents arrived put her in chains and shackles and told her she would be deported and that she could not attempt to return to America for 20 years. "That was when I learned that I had a deportation record from that first attempt in Nogales," she said. "I...

    Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Larua Kiessling said, from the bench, she received many letters about the case expressing concern about the “current political climate” where President Trump has been “harshly critical of illegal immigration and of Mexico in particular,” the Capital Gazette reported. The judge said it is “reasonable to conclude” that the defendant, Martin Martinez-Ballinas, would flee the scene out of fear of being deported. “I’m not going to sentence based on the political environment,” Keissling told the courtroom. Maryland defense attorney Kush Arora told Breitbart Texas that Martinez-Ballinas’s fear does not matter as to guilt or...

    The Trump administration is considering suspending the visas of some citizens in countries who have "refused to accept or unreasonably delayed the return of its nationals," according to multiple reports Wednesday evening. Cambodia, Eritrea, Guinea, and Sierra Leone have refused to take back people in the U.S. who are in the country illegally and been cleared by immigration courts for removal, according to the Washington Times. DHS requested in a letter to the State Department that it suspend visas to some citizens from the four countries, though it's not known who would be affected. "When we receive such notification, the...

    CLEVELAND -- Imagine spending 48 years in a country, then you are told you are being deported to a country you don’t remember and don’t speak the language. That is what is happening to Stefan Cina. He moved to the United States with his parents when he was 2-years-old from Czechoslovakia. He admits he got into legal trouble when he was young, but says has since lived a quiet, law-abiding life with his kids. Stefan is set to be deported in October. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says Cina was ordered deported more than a decade ago.

    Lizandro Claros Saravia was supposed to be at college in North Carolina by now. At soccer practice. At the library. Instead, the 19-year-old soccer star from Germantown is hundreds of miles away, in a sweltering Central American nation he barely recognizes and sometimes fears. U.S. immigration officials swiftly deported him and his older brother, Diego, on Aug. 2, days after Lizandro told them during a routine check-in that he had a scholarship to attend Louisburg College. Lizandro and Diego, now 22, used fraudulent visas and passports to come to the United States in 2009 and reunite with their family; some...

    The Trump administration is working with like-minded sheriffs from around the country on a plan to channel undocumented immigrants from local jails into federal detention, according to several sheriffs involved in the discussions. If it succeeds, it could vastly expand the dragnet that has already begun to transform immigration enforcement in the United States. The plan is intended to circumvent court decisions that have thus far limited the role of local law enforcement in immigration. It involves a legal move regarding detainers, which are requests by Immigration and Customs Enforcement to local sheriffs or police departments to hold people who...

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement has arrested more than 400 people in an operation targeting undocumented parents and guardians who allegedly paid smugglers to bring their children to the U.S., putting them in grave danger. An ICE spokesman tells NPR the domestic phase of its Human Smuggling Disruption Initiative concluded on Friday. He said the "surge initiative" will now shift its focus to the transnational smuggling organizations that bring the children to the U.S.-Mexico border. The operation, which uses immigrant children to target their sponsors in the U.S., has been controversial. Immigrant advocates complain it is hampering efforts to reunite families....

    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...

    The ACLU filed a class action lawsuit Friday charging that the Trump administration is wrongly accusing young illegal immigrants of gang affiliations as a way to short-circuit their rights and force them into speedy deportations. The lawsuit, filed in federal district court in California, opens yet another legal front against President Trump’s goal of stepped-up immigration enforcement, with advocates hoping to blunt a new effort by Homeland Security to find and deport some of the Central Americans who jumped the border during the Obama era. Immigrant-rights advocates said the government has started to fabricate broad accusations of gang membership or...
