    According to LawNewz, the Trump administration is now regularly using a term that has rarely been used by the federal government since 2009: There has been a shift in the language that the U.S. Department of Justice is using in its press releases and official announcements, and it’s not sitting well with some. The DOJ, under the leadership of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, has begun using the term “illegal aliens” to refer to immigrants who do not have the proper paperwork to be in the United States. Under Obama, the de rigueur term was “undocumented” which sanitized what was going...

    The Obama-holdover chosen by DHS Secretary John Kelly to direct Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for the Trump Administration helped author Obama’s controversial immigration priorities and executive orders, and he also publicly praised them. ... Trump’s campaign largely centered around opposing former resident Barack Obama’s executive orders on immigration and the release of criminal illegal aliens into U.S. communities. Acting ICE Director Homan was the Enforcement and Removal Director (ERO) for resident Obama and even received an elite award from the former resident for his efforts on immigration. Homan has come under fire from the ICE Council for being Obama’s...

    Schools have become the crucible for intimidation and recruitment into the Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13, gang on Long Island and around the country. One Long Island mother, who wanted to remain anonymous for fear of reprisal from MS-13, said she and several other parents have taken their teenagers out of the local high school because they’ve become targets of the gang. Some children are being homeschooled and, in a few extreme cases, sent to stay with relatives out of the state. “I am scared to death,” the mother said. “It’s a crapshoot. I feel like we’re rolling the dice here,...

    Brooklyn and Baltimore prosecutors have instructed staff to consider alternative offenses and sentence modifications for illegal immigrants to protect them from possible deportation. Acting Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez said in a statement that his new policy aims to “prevent collateral consequences of convictions” for illegal immigrants. Gonzalez instructed his assistants to consider “alternative offenses the defendant can plead to as well as reasonable modifications to the sentence recommendation.” The alternative offense should be similar in level and length of sentence to that offered to a citizen defendant, but the charge may be different, Gonzalez said.

    By visiting Long Island last week, Attorney General Jeff Sessions brought national attention to a community besieged by gang violence. “I have a message for the gangs that target young people: We are targeting you. We are coming after you,” Sessions said at the federal courthouse in Central Islip, less than three miles from the park where four young men were found murdered two weeks earlier. The brutal manner in which the four youths, aged between 16 and 20, were killed “is consistent with the modus operandi of MS-13,” according to Suffolk County Police Commissioner Timothy Sini. MS-13, or Mara...

    At first, Evelyn Rodriguez thought her teenage daughter had forgotten to charge her phone—it kept going straight to voicemail. Or maybe she had just lost track of time. But Kayla Cuevas and her best friend Nisa Mickens never blew through their 9 p.m. curfew, especially without checking in. “She would call me if she was going to be two minutes late,” said Rodriguez. Sept. 13 was a typical Tuesday in Brentwood, New York, and the girls had gone for a walk while it was still daylight. Earlier in the evening, Cuevas, who had turned 16 two months prior, and Mickens...

    The number of illegal border crossings has declined for its fifth straight month, according to new data.

Fewer than 16,600 people were apprehended by Border Patrol trying to enter the country illegally in March, Customs and Border Protection statistics show. More than 18,700 were apprehended in February...

    LOS ANGELES—A fast-tracked state Senate bill is awaiting a vote that could turn California into a "sanctuary state." But county sheriffs say it goes too far.Senate bill (SB) 54 goes beyond California's 2014 Trust Act, which prevents local jails from holding people for extra time based on their immigration status, except for those who have committed certain crimes, such as murder, robbery, rape, or kidnapping. SB 54 prohibits state and local law enforcement agencies from using resources—including facilities, equipment, and personnel—for immigration enforcement purposes without a court warrant. It also prohibits local agencies from sharing important information and leasing jail...

    An 18-year-old man who beheaded his mother in a small North Carolina town on Monday is an illegal alien, The Daily Caller has learned. Oliver Mauricio Funes Machado was taken into custody after police say he decapitated his 35-year-old mother, Yesenia Funes Beatriz Machado, in their home in Franklin County. Machado, a Honduran national, was found holding a large butcher knife in one hand and his mother's head in the other. "When they arrived, he was with the decapitation in his hand and it was a gruesome scene," Franklin Co. sheriff Kent Winstead told WRAL, a local news station. Machado...

    Los Angeles (CNN)A hammer pounds away in the living room of a middle class home. A sanding machine smoothes the grain of the wood floor in the dining room. But this home Pastor Ada Valiente is showing off in Los Angeles, with its refurbished floors, is no ordinary home. "It would be three families we host here," Valiente says. By "host," she means provide refuge to people who may be sought by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement, known as ICE. The families staying here would be undocumented immigrants, fearing an ICE raid and possible deportation.

    Christian organizations in Norway plan to join a campaign to employ undocumented migrants, despite the threat of fines and imprisonment. Tor Berger Jřrgensen, the former bishop of Sřr-Hĺlogaland in northern Norway, launched the campaign last week, arguing that breaking the law in this way was not about saving money, but about providing a livelihood to people “in a hopeless situation”. The 71-year-old priest sent letters out to Christian organizations across Norway, asking them to give jobs to those who could neither return to their home countries nor get residency in Norway. He told the newspaper he was “optimistic” that his...

    An undocumented immigrant is taking refuge at a church in Denver while she fights to remain in the country. Jeanette Vizguerra, a mother of four, was scheduled to check in with Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents Wednesday morning. She wanted to extend the stay on her deportation order, which expired last week, while she applies for a special visa. It was denied. She now faces separation from her American-born children, the youngest of whom is just 6. Vizguerra’s attorney appeared in court for her, saying she probably would have been taken into custody if she appeared. She is now taking...

    The trustees overseeing Santa Rosa City Schools voted unanimously this week to declare the district a “safe haven” for immigrant families, meaning no federal immigration officers will be allowed on campus without the written approval of district Superintendent Diann Kitamura. The move on Wednesday has been in the works since the day after the November election, said Jenni Klose, the board president, who said it was prompted by fears and anxiety generated by President-Elect Donald Trump’s campaign trail promises to build a wall between the United States and Mexico and vow to deport millions of undocumented immigrants. “There were first-graders...

    More than 60 Democratic members of Congress are urging President Obama to protect the hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who signed up for his deferred action program before he leaves office next month. “You have pardoned hundreds and hundreds of people convicted for drug offenses,” Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., said at a Wednesday press conference in Washington. “We want you to use that same pardon power for hundreds of thousands of young people who came forward because you asked them to come forward. You asked them to come forward.” “With that comes responsibility, Mr. President,” he added. The White...

    A 34-year-old Mexican citizen arrested in Mandeville pleaded guilty Wednesday (Sept. 7) to possessing a gun while in the U.S. illegally, according to the U.S. Attorney's office in New Orleans. Salvador Acosta-Salas, also known as Jamie Gonzales Jr., faces a sentence of up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

When pulled over, Acosta-Salas got out of his vehicle and produced a Mexican identification card for Mandeville police, but he did...

    Back in March we talked about the decision by the Library of Congress to stop using “offensive terms” like illegal alien to refer to, er… illegal aliens. Shortly thereafter, Republicans in Congress moved to attach language to the pending appropriations bill which would require the Library of Congress to stick to terminology as it exists in current federal law. But since it hasn’t passed yet, the Library is moving forward with the changes and keeping up the debate in the media. (New York Times) “There is no other way to put this: the library has bowed to the political pressure...

    In 2009, when Associate Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote her first opinion as a member of the high court, she used the term "undocumented immigrant" to refer to persons who are in the United States illegally. It is believed to have been the first such usage in the history of the court, where the term "illegal immigrant" had previously been used. In an interview for last week's NPR program Latino USA, Justice Sotomayor explained her decision. She told host Maria Hinojosa: "Illegal immigrant" has a sense, I think, in people's minds, that immigrants are all criminals and criminals in...

While students can opt out of paying the fee, if they do nothing it will be automatically imposed. Backers say it helps reverse what they call Arizona’s reputation as a “national example of discriminatory politics.”</p>
