  • “Sanctuary City” Opponents Push Back via Petitions

    In June 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down large parts of an Arizona state law intended to give local law enforcement the power to enforce federal immigration laws. The ruling in Arizona v. United States held that three sections of S.B. 1070 were pre-empted by federal immigration law. The Obama administration, which opposed the Arizona law, along with advocates for open borders, hailed the ruling, contending that the U.S. couldnÂ’t very well have 50 different immigration policies. Now, five years later the script has flipped. Many of the same folks who railed against a single state setting its own...

    Multnomah County Circuit Court administrators have determined that Pro Tem Judge Monica Herranz didn’t violate any rules of judicial conduct when she allowed an undocumented criminal defendant to leave her courtroom through a back door as immigration agents waited in the hallway. Trial Court Administrator Barbara Marcille investigated Herranz's actions from Jan. 27 and found that Herranz didn’t knowingly help impaired-driving defendant Diddier Pacheco-Salazar elude capture. Marcille listened to an audio recording of the hearing, viewed video footage and interviewed 10 people who were in and around the courtroom that day -- including Herranz, her staff and courthouse deputies. Those...

    The Truth: Federal ICE agents took part in a raid on more than a dozen of convenience stores in the St. Louis area, and 35 men were arrested on charges related to selling illegal cigarettes and synthetic drugs. Reports about the arrests surfaced in local St. Louis-area media reports immediately after ICE convenience store raids in May 2017, and those reports filtered into fringe publications after a Department of Justice (DOJ) press release a list of 35 people with Arabic names who were indicted.Sources with knowledge of the investigation said the raids were also tied to the illegal sale of...

    If you are in a country illegally, breaking the laws of the country you are in, shouldn’t you be afraid of being found and deported? Well that’s what U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement chief Thomas Homan said Tuesday in response to a growing cry from liberal activists complaining about ICE agents enforcing federal law. Anyone in the country without authorization can be arrested at any time. And those who have been ordered deported by judges and who did not show up for hearings (which happened countless times during the Obama years) must be removed from the country if those laws...

    The Trump administration said Friday it still has not decided the fate of a program protecting hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation, despite a statement a day earlier that the program will continue. The mixed signals reflect the political sensitivities behind the Obama administration program known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. As a candidate who put tough immigration policies at the core of his campaign, Donald Trump denounced the program as an "illegal amnesty" and said he would immediately end it. {snip} Following news reports that the DACA program would continue, and reactions on both...

    President Donald Trump’s immigration enforcer doubled down Friday on recent comments that undocumented immigrants “should be afraid” under the Trump administration. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Acting Director Thomas Homan said in an interview today that he has “zero regrets” about his remarks before Congress this week, expanding on them. “It needed to be said,” Homan told CNN on the sidelines of a Central American prosperity and security conference. “And by me saying you should be worried, you should be afraid — if you lie on your taxes, you’ve got to be worried, ‘Is the IRS going to audit me?’ …...

    U.S. immigration authorities have arrested and moved to deport 199 Iraqi immigrants, mostly from the Detroit area, in the last three weeks after Iraq agreed to accept deportees as part of a deal removing it from President Donald Trump’s travel ban, officials said on Wednesday. In the Detroit area, 114 Iraqi nationals were arrested over the weekend, and 85 throughout the rest of the country over the past several weeks, Gillian Christensen, a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman, said in a statement. The actions came as part of the Trump administration’s push to increase immigration enforcement and make countries,...

    SAN RAFAEL (CBS SF) — A man wearing a jacket that resembled one worn by federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents caused a stir at a San Rafael church during a Spanish-speaking service, police said.

Police contacted ICE and the FBI and learned the man was not employed by either law enforcement organization. But the man is a San Francisco city employee and was placed on leave after he showed up wearing the jacket during the Spanish-language service at the Lutheran Church of...

    A Mexican woman was released from custody Friday while the U.S. government seeks to deport her after a judge rejected arguments she should wear a monitoring device because she was arrested twice while demonstrating in support of people in the country illegally. Claudia Rueda, 22, plans to apply for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a program started in 2012 under President Barack Obama that shields immigrants who came to the U.S. as young children from being deported. Her case has drawn attention because she has no criminal record and is an immigration activist. The immigration judge, Annie S. Garcy, said...

    During a Friday interview with NPR’s Latino USA and anchor Maria Hinojosa, Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti said that increased immigration enforcement from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) could lead to growing tensions in his city, to the point that it could be the “tinderbox” on the scale of the 1992 Los Angeles Riots. Here is the transcript from the interview: GARCETTI: If something goes wrong, I fear a tinderbox out there, where people will suddenly say “no” and try to defend, you know, keep that person from being taken. That’s a very dangerous situation. That’s dangerous for those officers....

    The Trump administration seems to be winning the most on immigration. Despite some roadblocks on the travel ban, Trump has followed through on enforcing federal law so that we may bring order back to this land. What broke yesterday was that the Trump administration is already appealing to the now full nine-member Supreme Court to let the travel ban take place. This will no doubt be a legal battle for the ages and one that needs to be hashed out. Trump’s order has law on his side, even if it makes liberals and others feel squeamish. The Trump effect is...

    WASHINGTON (CNN) - Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly defended the uptick in immigration arrests by his agents with colorful language in an interview with FOX News Friday morning. "Seventy-five percent of the people that the great men and women of ICE have taken into custody, 75% are criminals. The other 25% are not innocent; they are multiple deportees, they are people who have been fleeing from the law, they are fugitives. But they are not necessarily convicted criminals," Kelly said. Seventy-five percent are indeed criminals. The other 25% are not the valedictorians of their high school class." Kelly's phrasing aside,...
