    Juan Manuel Montes, a Mexican national who is protected under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals act, is suing the Trump administration after being deported to Mexico in February. According to the Los Angeles Times, Montes was deported to Mexico without explanation on February 17, despite the fact that his DACA status and work permit were valid. He was approached by Border Patrol agents in Calexico, California and prohibited from getting his wallet from a friend’s car so that he could prove his status, USA Today reports. Three hours later, he was deported to Mexico. If these claims are...

    A Maryland high school has been thrust into the national immigration debate after a 14-year-old student said she was raped in a bathroom there by two classmates, including one who authorities said came to the U.S. illegally from Central America.Protesters on both sides of the debate converged on a nearby elementary school Thursday during a visit by U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. And the White House has weighed in, saying the president has made a crackdown on illegal immigration a priority "because of tragedies like this."The Montgomery County school system has been besieged by hundreds of racist and xenophobic calls....

    In the wake of an alleged brutal rape at Rockville High School in Maryland by two illegal aliens last week, Montgomery County Superintendent Dr. Jack Smith is accusing parents of racism and xenophobia. He also claims threats are being made against students and schools. "While I know this tragic incident has become part of a national political debate, I want to remind community members that the lives of real students have been forever affected," Smith sent in an email Thursday morning. "While many have chosen to engage civilly in the conversation, far too many have crossed the line with racist,...

    Henry Sanchez Milian, one of two suspects charged in the rape of a 14-year-old girl in a bathroom at a Maryland high school did not do what he is accused of, his defense attorney said Wednesday.“Based on everything we know, we think he’s innocent,” said Andrew Jezic, who has been retained by Sanchez Milian’s family. “This appears to have been a consensual encounter.”Jezic said his 18-year-old client is confident he will be exonerated.An arrest warrant filed against Sanchez Milian and signed by a police detective — as well as a similar warrant against a co-defendant, Jose Montano, 17, who has...

    House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte is blaming the Obama administration's "lax immigration policies" for the rape of a 14-year-old girl at a high school outside Washington last week. The Virginia Republican made the accusation in a letter to Homeland Security Sec. John Kelly on Wednesday. "Once again, we have an example of how the Obama administration's lax immigration enforcement policies resulted in a life being seriously harmed – in this case, the life of an innocent 14 year-old-girl who was simply attending school," Goodlatte wrote. "There is no doubt that such heinous crimes by illegal immigrants who were encountered by...

    One of the fundamental ways scientists measure the well-being of a nation is tracking the rate at which its citizens die and how long they can be expected to live. So the news out of the federal government Thursday is disturbing: The overall U.S. death rate has increased for the first time in a decade, according to an analysis of the latest data. And that led to a drop in overall life expectancy for the first time since 1993 Most notably, the overall death rate for Americans increased because mortality from heart disease and stroke increased after declining for years....

    Relying upon a technique rarely seen in political journalism these days, anonymous and nebulously described sources, BuzzFeed, hot off its tour de force in releasing the Trump “dossier” now has another scoop? Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA — which Trump said he would rescind on day one — is rough political terrain for the White House. Conservative media and elected officials see it as a rare hardline immigration promise the administration hasn’t kept, and the White House is kicking it down the road for as long as officials can. But according to two sources who regularly speak with...

    The governors of Mexico have written to an American court to express support for a Seattle-area man who has been detained for weeks despite his participation in a federal program to protect people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children. The National Conference of Governors of Mexico sent the letter to U.S. Magistrate Judge James Donohue, who is overseeing the case of Daniel Ramirez Medina. Ramirez, a 23-year-old Mexican, was arrested Feb. 10 in a Seattle suburb by immigration agents who initially arrived to detain his father, identified as a previously deported felon.

    JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- The attorney for a young woman who was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement after speaking at a news conference about immigration says she's been told the woman will be deported without a hearing. Abigail Peterson, an attorney for 22-year-old Daniela Vargas, tells news outlets that authorities informed her Thursday that Vargas' case will be handled as a "visa waiver overstay," which means she won't be given a hearing and will be flown back to her native Argentina.

    The audience for President Trump’s speech in the House chamber Tuesday night will include undocumented immigrant students who face an uncertain future under his administration. A growing number of Democrats are bringing young undocumented immigrants as their guests to Trump’s address to a joint session of Congress. More than half-dozen House and Senate Democrats so far are hosting immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and are temporarily shielded from deportation under an Obama-era program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

    Univision anchor Jorge Ramos used the recent occasion of President Trump saying that “DREAMers” should be treated with a “heart” to advocate that all 11 million illegal aliens should be legalized while the president has both chambers of Congress under his party’s control. He made the comments on CNN with Anderson Cooper Thursday. “In the shadow of the expansion of immigration enforcement,” Cooper asked, “the Trump administration, they’re leaving in place the protections they say were put in place for ‘DREAMers’ and documented parents of U.S. citizens. What do you make of that decision? Does that, do you think that...

    Lawyers for detained “Dreamer” Daniel Ramirez Medina went to court Friday seeking his immediate release and calling his arrest in a Des Moines apartment unconstitutional. A federal magistrate ruled he wasn’t empowered to free Ramirez before an immigration judge gets a chance to weigh in. But in a case that he said had far-reaching implications about federal policy regarding Dreamers, and which has drawn the concern of the Mexican government and immigration activists nationwide, Chief Magistrate Judge James Donohue took the unusual step of requiring that a bond hearing in immigration court be held within a week. U.S. District Court...

    hile President Trump wavered Thursday on whether he will stop shielding from deportation people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, his aides have identified at least two ways to quietly end their protections without his fingerprints. An executive order has already been drafted to end the program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, that allows hundreds of thousands of the immigrants to live and work openly in the U.S. Trump used that legal mechanism to great fanfare to expand deportation authority and restrict entry to the U.S. But with the president showing less willingness to sign such an...
