    After living in the U.S. for more than 30 years, Jean Montrevil, Haitian immigrant rights activist and co-founder of the New Sanctuary Coalition of New York City, was deported back to his country less than two weeks after he was arrested by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, ICE, agents. Montrevil confirmed he has a pending legal appeal in U.S. courts. For this reason he did not expect his rapid deportation to Haiti. Speaking of his arrest he said it was "two days of hell [...] two days straight with no food and no explanation." Montrevil was convicted in the nineties...

    Cindy Garcia has had a long, exhausting and life-changing week. And by all appearances, the whirlwind is going to continue. On Monday morning, she watched immigration agents escort Jorge Garcia, her husband of 15 years, through the security gates at Detroit Metropolitan Airport, deporting him to Mexico after nearly three decades living and raising a family in Michigan. Video of Cindy Garcia and the couple's two adolescent children sobbing as they said goodbye grabbed national headlines. Supporters held up the family's experience as an example of the far-reaching effects of President Donald Trump's sweeping crackdown on undocumented immigration. Observers across...

    The Soviet armies advancing into East Prussia in January 1945, in huge, long columns, were an extraordinary mixture of modern and medieval: tank troops in padded black helmets, Cossack cavalrymen on shaggy mounts with loot strapped to the saddle, lend-lease Studebakers and Dodges towing light field guns, and then a second echelon in horse-drawn carts. The variety of character among the soldiers was almost as great as that of their military equipment. There were freebooters who drank and raped quite shamelessly, and there were idealistic, austere communists and members of the intelligentsia appalled by such behaviour. Beria and Stalin, back...

    TUCSON – Border Patrol agents from the Willcox Station and a Mobile Response Team rescued three Mexican nationals west of Whetstone. An agent working north of the Immigration Checkpoint on Interstate 90 first encountered a 24-year-old Mexican man with a laceration on his face. The man told the agent he and his wife had fallen into a deep wash and that she was unable to walk. He said he left her behind with a relative so he could search for help. A team of agents searched the area and located the man’s 26-year-old wife and a 20-year-old male relative shortly...

  • Is Trump carrying out a mass deportation? It feels that way to some

    NBC "News" ^ | January 17, 2018 | by Suzanne Gamboa
    WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s crackdown on immigrants may not look on paper like a mass deportation, but for many people it feels like one. Statistically Trump’s sweep of immigrants, while up from last year, doesn’t compare to the deportations done in the early years of President Barack Obama’s first term. But the administration’s attempt to return to the peak deportation levels under Obama or surpass them, combined with Trump’s rhetoric and his drive to slash legal immigration, have whipped up enough fear to make some feel a mass roundup is underway. “At any moment I feel I could just...

    Mwewa Mwange says that she is shy and avoids conversations, too afraid of awkward moments. But ever since she became eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, she slowly came out of her shell. She is one of almost 700,000 undocumented immigrants brought to the US as children who have DACA, which offers temporary protection from deportation and the opportunity to apply for work permits. But she’s specifically passionate about black immigrants, a demographic she says often gets ignored in immigrant advocacy circles. “I can step out of this shadow or out of this hiding and be able...

    WASHINGTON - U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday aligned himself solidly with conservative Republicans on immigration, criticizing a proposed bipartisan deal as “horrible” on border security and “very, very weak” on reforms for the legal immigration system. The Senate proposal -- aimed at addressing Democrats’ demands for protections for young adults dubbed “Dreamers” brought to the United States illegally as children -- fell far short of what most Republicans believe needs to happen, Trump told Reuters in an interview. “It’s the opposite of what I campaigned for,” Trump said.

    Agreement is test for national detainer authority.More than a dozen Florida sheriffs announced a deal Wednesday that will allow them to hold illegal immigrants wanted by the federal government for deportation, in what’s likely to be a key test case for cities and countries eager to cooperate but worried about legal problems associated with helping the Trump administration. Known as the Basic Ordering Agreement, the deal struck between 17 Florida sheriffs and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement would allow local authorities to hold illegal immigrants even beyond the time they normally would have to be released based on state or...

    Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg is fighting for changes to U.S. immigration policy - and encouraging those on Facebook to call their congressional leaders to do the same. Zuckerberg posted on his Facebook page Wednesday in support of Dreamers, undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children. “Every day that Congress doesn’t act more DACA recipients are losing their status,” Zuckerberg wrote Wednesday. “This is a basic question of whether our government works. Can Congress come together and find a path forward, or will we default to forcing almost one million people out of their jobs and country?” Zuckerberg...

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | January 16, 2018 | by Elizabeth Harrington
    During the Obama administration, Immigration and Customs Enforcement was not following proper procedures when checking if illegal aliens were known terrorists, jeopardizing national security, according to an audit. The office of inspector general found that between 2013 and 2015, ICE was not screening illegal immigrants who had been released for terrorist ties. Every single case of a suspected terrorist reviewed by the inspector general included errors. "ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) faces challenges in implementing the Known or Suspected Terrorist Encounter Protocol (KSTEP) screening process, which is used to identify aliens who may be known or suspected terrorists," the...

    Accused cop killer Luis Bracamontes repeatedly interrupted the opening day of his murder trial Tuesday with a barrage of insults and profanity, prompting Sacramento Superior Court Judge Steve White to remove the jury briefly. “I wish I had killed more of the mother-------,” Bracamontes boasted to the jury as prosecutor Rod Norgaard described the 2014 crime spree that killed two area deputies. “I will break out soon and I will kill more, kill whoever gets in front of me...There’s no need for a f------ trial,” he added. That was the latest of several outbursts from the defendant Tuesday, who has...

    SEATTLE - A longtime activist for illegal immigrants in the Northwest says she herself is now facing deportation. Maru Mora-Villalpando, a native of Mexico City who has been in the U.S. for more than 25 years, said Tuesday that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has given her a notice to appear before an immigration judge. She says she believes ICE is targeting her because of her activism. She leads an organization called Northwest Detention Center Resistance, which was created in 2014 when detainees at the privately run immigration detention facility in Tacoma began a series of hunger strikes to protest...

    Oh, we’re back to Nazi references again. Last week, NPR’s Maria Hinojosa compared federal law enforcement officers to the Gestapo because they were doing their jobs. Hinojosa was on MSNBC with Ali Velshi to comment on President Trump “s**thole countries” remark that sent left wing America into full-blown meltdown mode last week. It became another angle to call Trump a racist. Even though one can argue quite convincingly that Somalia, one of the countries Trump listed in his executive order on immigration (aka the “Muslim ban”), is indeed a hellhole. Until Americans, especially liberals go to vacation in Somalia, South...

    A man aboard a Greyhound bus who allegedly threatened to shoot and kill fellow passengers on Friday, leading police on a chase that began in Wisconsin and ended in Illinois, is an illegal immigrant, and is now facing terror charges. Police responded to a call around 9:40 p.m. Friday from a bus passenger who claimed there was a person threatening to kill people, Fox 6 reported, citing the Racine County Sheriff’s Department. Margarito Vargas-Rosas, 33, of Chicago, was reportedly pacing the aisle toward the back of the bus, and appeared to draw what passengers thought was a weapon from his...

    It doesn’t take much to set off the media. It really doesn’t. Last night, the entire media establishment went into full meltdown mode because the president reportedly asked why are we allowing people from ‘sh*thole countries’ to come here. This is anonymously sourced. It really hasn’t been verified, and no—Dick Durbin is not a credible source, having lied about White House meetings before. Regardless, CNN blew a gasket. Anderson Cooper cried, Chris Cuomo decided to take this lecture to the white board, and Don Lemon’s program was off the hinges.Vulgar CNN: Trump's 'S***hole' Quote Shows He's Clearly 'Racist' "Let me...

    The two senators who struck a deal with each other on an immigration deal signaled Friday they’ll push ahead with their bargain despite opposition from President Trump, saying they sense growing bipartisan support. The comments by Sen. Dick Durbin, a Democrat, and Sen. Lindsey Graham, a Republican, came a day after they were in a meeting where the president reportedly used a disparaging expletive to refer to some developing countries such as Haiti and El Salvador. ~snip~ Mr. Durbin, meanwhile, described the deal he and Mr. Graham reached as “a genuine compromise.”
