    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 wasnt 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...

    The Trump administration says the hundreds of undocumented immigrants it picked up in a nationwide sweep represent the worst of the worst, but a quarter of those arrested had no criminal record. And now Reuters reports that at least one person still detained had been granted legal permission to stay and work in the U.S. under the Deferred Action for Child Arrivals program, or DACA. Over 680 people were arrested last week as part of a five-day enforcement surge carried out by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ICE says the raids targeted criminals, but the agency has failed to release...

    We should not allow Dreamers to forget that this is a nation of law and they received mercy. On June 15, 2012, President Obama signed an executive order to protect those who arrived illegally to the United States as minors. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals provides a two-year window to shield these people from deportation and allow them to work. They must have been under 16 when they arrived, be in school or have completed school, and have no criminal record. The order produced consternation on two fronts. First, the nature of the action. Many feel that immigration policy, legal...

His options appear few. At least 50 congressional Democrats are pushing Obama to take the rare if not unprecedented step of granting pardons to the young immigrants who have stepped forward to identify themselves in exchange for a promise that they'd be safe from deportation. The White House, though, has repeatedly ruled that out. Several Republican...

    Is this Obamas America? Shocking video has emerged from the anti-Donald Trump protests in California showing Hispanic children probably 10 to 12 years old giving the middle finger to cars of Trump supporters. The kids, wearing sombreros and ironically holding signs reading No hate, screamed F*ck you! repeatedly at the passing motorists. One of the children in the center of the action could be seen wearing a Bernie Sanders sticker. Hillary Clinton campaign signs could also be seen in the crowd. One sign reads F*ck You Puto. Puto means male prostitute in Spanish.

    PHOENIX Arizona cannot legally deny "dreamers'' the right to drive, a federal appeals court ruled late Tuesday. A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Arizona cannot decide for itself who is legally entitled to be in this country. The judges said that power rests solely with Congress. The judges also said the policy of denying licenses to those in the Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program ran afoul of the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution. That's because the state was still issuing licenses to others in different deferred action programs....

    First came the endorsement. Arizonas contentious Sheriff Joe Arpaio showered his support on Donald Trump, then campaigned for him ahead of the state presidential primary. He appeared on TV and at a huge rally with the Republican presidential front-runner in the lawmans hometown. Then came the criticism. Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders denounced the sheriff known for his hardline stance on illegal immigration, calling him out at their own campaign events. The national exposure leading to the March 22 primary marked a return to the political spotlight for Arpaio, an influential figure in Republican circles who has spent the...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - When Grecia Rivas graduated from a Tucson high school a few years ago, she thought her days in a classroom were over. She was an immigrant living in the U.S. illegally and counselors didn't know what to tell her about college prospects, though she had a 3.8 grade point average. It was the height of Arizona's SB1070, a state law designed to target immigrants like her, and Arizona colleges at that time didn't allow such immigrants to attend at in-state tuition rates. The 24-year-old from Nogales, Mexico, is now pursuing a degree in graphic design at one...

    The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency is preparing for a record number of unaccompanied children, from birth to 17 years old, to flow over the Southwest border in the months ahead. In fact, it's already happening, CBP chief Gil Kerlikowske said in his written testimony for a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing on CBP's FY 2017 budget request. For the first four months of Fiscal Year 2016 (Oct. 1, 2015-Jan. 31, 2016), Border Patrol agents have apprehended more than 20,000 unaccompanied children crossing the Southwest border, twice as many as the 10,000 apprehended during the same time period in FY...
