  • ICE Overrides Blumenthal On Deportation

    New Haven Independent ^ | August 20, 2017 | by CHRISTOPHER PEAK
    Marco Antonio Reyes Alvarez, the undocumented Ecuadorian immigrant who has found sanctuary from deportation in a church downtown, might face a prolonged stay at First & Summerfield due to a new directive that limits the ability of members of Congress to halt removal orders. Federal legislators have regularly introduced “private immigration bills,” which, if passed, would grant permanent legal residency to a person who entered the country illegally. More importantly, while the private immigration bills were being considered, federal agents at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) used to hold off on deporting the individual. If a U.S. senator was...

    The Wander Press ^ | August 19, 2017 | Christopher Manion
    The Wanderer reported last week that Bishop Mark Seitz of El Paso treats pro-abortion Catholic politicians with kid gloves even as he harshly condemns pro-life officials who oppose Obama’s amnesty for illegal aliens. Within days of our report, the bishop doubled down, insisting that, since Jesus agrees with him, anyone who opposes amnesty “cannot call himself or herself Catholic” because they don’t express “the compassion of Jesus.” On the other hand, seen through the complex lens of the Seitz Syndrome, the bishop’s congressman, state senator, and state representative can call themselves Catholic, even though they are 100 percent pro-abortion “rights.”...

    PAMPA - Pampa Police arrest 16 illigal individuals after a traffic stop. It happened at 2:40 a.m. when a Pampa Police Officer attempted to stop a vehicle for a speeding violation. The officer said the vehicle pulled over on the 900 block of West Alcock, and as the officer approached the driver door, the vehicle drove off and turned south onto N. Hobart St. The vehicle then came to an abrupt stop and, according to the officer, multiple occupants began to exit the vehicle and fled the scene. The officer was able to detain two occupants still inside. Other officers...

    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....
  • Illegal Immigrants, by Definition, Are Not Law-Abiding US Citizens

    The Connecticut Law Tribune ^ | 18 Aug 2017 | CHRIS POWELL, The Connecticut Law Tribune
    As another illegal immigrant defied a deportation order and sequestered himself in a church in New Haven the other day, Mayor Toni Harp welcomed him and proclaimed: "New Haven will remain a sanctuary city. We are not going to engage in helping to report our law-abiding citizens." But, of course, by definition illegal immigrants are not law-abiding, and the latest one seeking sanctuary in New Haven, like the last one, received a deportation order years ago and then some temporary stays before he was denied another. While he seems harmless enough, terrorists and other ne'er-do-wells might be cheered by the...

    Reuters ^ | August 17, 2017 | by Anna Mehler Paperny
    The number of asylum seekers who illegally crossed the U.S. border into Canada more than tripled last month, according to Canadian government data released on Thursday, as migrants worried about the U.S. administration's immigration crackdown head north. More than 3,100 people walked across the border illegally in July to file refugee claims and were arrested, up from 884 in June, the federal government said. Ninety-six percent of them went to Quebec, where an influx of asylum seekers, primarily Haitians, is sparking a backlash from opposition politicians and anti-immigrant groups in the primarily French-speaking province. The Montreal suburb of Boucherville has...

    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...

    Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino on Wednesday vetoed legislation aimed at protecting illegal immigrants because he believes it could result in the county being labeled as a sanctuary municipality, risking millions in federal funds. Mr. Astorino said the legislation would jeopardize public safety and cost taxpayers $13 million. “If you end up in our jail for committing a crime, and you’re not here legally, we’re not providing a sanctuary for you,” Mr. Astorino said.

    The Workers World Party is taking to New York City for a two-day conference to show how to spread socialism around the nation and world, and to explain why the time is ripe for such expansion. The event, titled “Putting Socialist Revolution on the Table,” kicks off Saturday at the Shabazz Center, and includes panel discussions on Black Lives Matter, with an emphasis on women and LGBT leadership; how to be a revolutionary; and on dispelling myths about China’s socialism. It also includes the discussion topic “fighting imperialism means building internationalism,” according to an advertisement sent out by the...

    Arizona’s Joe Arpaio became Maricopa County sheriff in 1993 and thus began the dark ages for the bad guys. “It’s not a country club,” Sheriff Joe said about his jail. He wasn’t kidding. When more room was needed, he did it on the cheap by erecting an infamous “tent city” out in the Arizona heat. In 2003, when inmates complained about temperatures over 100 degrees, Sheriff Joe was unimpressed.

    On Monday, The American Bar Association’s House of Delegates passed a resolution demanding that Congress let undocumented immigrants practice law. The bar suggests that lawmakers should add this block of text to 8 U.S.C. 5 § 1621(d): "A state court vested with exclusive authority to regulate admission to the bar may, by rule, order, or other affirmative act, permit an undocumented alien seeking legal status to obtain a professional license to practice law in that jurisdiction". This wouldn’t require state courts to license undocumented lawyers, but it would make it clear that the federal government won’t get in the way....

    The United Nations Human Rights Council is now demanding President Trump enact a full open borders policy that would release more than 350,000 illegal aliens and foreign refugees into the public. In a 23-page report by the U.N. Human Rights Council, Trump is requested to set free all foreign nationals who are currently awaiting immigration hearings in the United States, Reuters reported. “The Working Group is of the view that all administrative detention, in particular of immigrants in an irregular situation, should be in accordance with international human rights law; and that such detention is to be a measure of...

    WASHINGTON — Before President Donald Trump’s hardline immigration policies took effect early this year, thousands of undocumented residents were given a break from being deported. Government immigration officials would hold off if the illegal immigrants were married to American citizens or longtime residents of the U.S., gainfully employed and had committed no crime other than being in the country illegally. It was, said immigration lawyer Heather Prendegast of Cleveland, the “government’s attempt to be nice.” The cordiality ended when Trump officials instructed Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to get tough on illegal immigration, according to a study by the...

    Edith Rivera loved her life in Hampton, Iowa, but for many undocumented immigrants like her, this summer has been a season of fear or flight. It was quitting time. Edith Rivera took one last lunch order, dropped off a basket of tortilla chips and set off from work, heading out to the farm roads where other immigrants feared to drive. Like them, Ms. Rivera, 33, had no legal status in the country where she had lived for 18 years. She had no driver’s license, apart from the long-expired North Carolina identification she held safe, like a talisman, in her wallet....

    On July 3, Bishop Mark Seitz of El Paso, Texas, published a nationally distributed op-ed blasting nine state attorneys general and one governor for insisting that U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions enforce U.S. immigration law. The officials, led by Attorney General Ken Paxton of Texas, had addressed specifically DACA, the “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” policy announced by the Obama administration on June 15, 2012, which gave some 1.1 million “Dreamers” — aliens who entered the U.S. illegally when they were 16 or younger — the opportunity to avoid deportation under certain circumstances.

    A 47-year-old Irishman has been arrested by Border Patrol agents in Northwest Montana for attempting to enter the United States illegally. Agents encountered the Irishman, carrying a large backpack, along the international border near the northeast section of Glacier National Park. He had previously overstayed his US visa and was prohibited from re-entering the United States for an extended period, according to Michael Rappold, public affairs officer for the Havre Sector Border Patrol Station. According to the authorities, the Irishman entered the United States from Canada by walking southbound, through the woods, to avoid detection. Rappold told the press he...

    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...
