    Thank you for the comment - I will look for the article. I don't have a problem with enforcing the law, but I do think it is helpful for people to know what is going on, and there are a lot of rumors these days. Also, the idea that non-criminal asylum seekers should be detained is worrying many people. As far as I can tell, that is not happening, and even if there is more expedited removal, it should not happen (unless the ICE agents violate the law). Take care, Jason

    Jason, I understand your concern, but I think you are judging Trump against Obama's enforcement policies. Under Obama, ICE officers needed special permission to arrest a deportable alien who was not in one of the priority categories. Although Trump has enforcement priorities too, ICE officers are allowed to arrest any deportable alien they choose to arrest. I suspect ICE officers who haven't made many arrests of priority aliens will be padding their figures by arresting aliens who are not priorities.

    Is that wrong? Only if you think the immigration laws shouldn't be enforced, and many people do feel that way. Trump, however, is not one of them, and neither will the officials in his administration...if they don't want to hear, "You're fired!"

    But the situation actually is much worse than this policy change indicates. If you look at Trump's executive orders, you will see that he is going to use the full statutory reach of expedited removal proceedings, which will make it possible for him to deport millions of noncriminal aliens without a hearing before an immigration judge.

    I explain in more detail in an article I just wrote that the Hill is supposed to publish tomorrow morning.

    I think the point of my article is that the EOs do very little. The rhetoric surrounding the EOs is designed to frighten people. Given the level of fear, I do not think it is a fair comparison to speeding tickets. Plus, many people who are not breaking the law in any way--such as many asylum seekers--are being terrorized as well. Thank you for the comment, Jason

    If by "terrorist tactics" you mean making people here illegally fear deportation, I think you are absolutely correct. That is what Trump is trying to do. But isn't that the objective of all law enforcement measures? Police ticket a small percentage of the people who drive too fast on the highways hoping to make the rest of the drivers afraid to speed for fear of getting a ticket too.

    Obama did the opposite. He gave the world the impression that once an undocumented alien has crossed our border and reached the interior of the country, he is "home free." He doesn't have to fear deportation unless he is convicted of a serious crime. For a more complete explanation, see my article, "With Obama's immigration legacy, Trump inherits 'home free magnet' (December 28, 2016),

    Muslims are not the only people being terrorized by Trump's executive orders.

    I am getting more than my share of calls from legal immigrants who are neither Muslims nor from the parts of the world affected by Trump's orders, but who are still terrified to travel outside of the United States for fear of not being able to get back in.

    If immigrant-hating Jeff Sessions, who is being opposed for confirmation by over 1,100 law school professors in every state in the union that has a law school (only Alaska does not), becomes the next Attorney General, as appears likely, opponents of all immigration from outside Europe who would like to return to the whites-only immigration patterns that existed before 1965 (which Sessions also wants to do according to his January 2016 immigration proposal to the 114th Congress), may soon be dancing over the corpse of America's entire legal immigration system.

    Jason, I don't think you understand the objection Trump has made to Syrian refugees. The FBI, DHS, and others have said that they can't do background searches in Syria. That means the we have no way of confirming anything they say. So long as that is the case, Trump is not going to let them into the country.

    Tell that to the families of people in Europe who have lost loved ones in terrorist attacks. According to PEW, most Europeans blame the refugee crisis for the terrorist attacks that have spread across Europe. The refugee crisis is being blamed for the terrorist attacks in Europe (August 2, 2016), [COLOR=rgb(0.000000%, 0.000000%, 100.000000%)]http://www.ilw.com/articles/2016,0802-Rappaport.pdf [/COLOR]




    The latest was today when a terrorist drove a large truck into a crowd of people in Germany. You can explain to them that the number of terrorists is a very, very, very small percentage of the total refugee population. That will make them feel better.

    Jasan, you seem to be saying that no one has proven that refugees are a danger to our national security, so we should let them in. But with immigration law, the burden of proof is on the person seeking admission (or whoever is advocating on his behalf), not on the American government officials who have to decide who to admit.

    Trump has virtually absolute power over refugee admissions. If he thinks Syrian refugees or any other groups of refugees are a danger to our country, he can keep them out with a written order saying he thinks they are a danger and that he is suspending their admissions indefinitely.

    If you don't want that to happen, you should be giving reasons for thinking that it is safe to let them in, which isn't going to be possible for refugees from countries that we we can't get information from.

    What about the threat to our democracy from the incoming new president and his circle of white nationalist advisers?

    Huffington Post reports today that 15,000 lawyers have already signed a letter demanding that Trump rescind the appointment of his bigoted new White House senior adviser, Breitbart News chief Stephen Bannon, a self-styled nationalist and "protector" of the "traditional", "Judeo-Christian West" (according to statements he made at a Vatican symposium in 2014).

    We all know what that could mean in terms of immigration policy:
    Non-white, non-Christian (or Jewish), non- European immigrants need not apply for admission to the United States.

    Hopefully, many more lawyers will sign this letter. It is certainly a good beginning.

    The risk I took became the best decision I have ever made in my marriage. I took the risk by contacting lord Abu spell caster to help bring back my husband who left for almost a year, after all my failed attempt.

    I stopped trusting people especially on the internet after someone almost brainwashed my sister to sell our home when she was searching for true lover. We were so lucky to stop her. I made up my mind never to pay attention to anyone trying to help. But something inside of me forced me to search for solution online and I was lucky to receive help from lord Abu.

    He proved me wrong that there are still good spell caster out there by genuinely casting the love spell which brought my husband back within 5 days. lord abu was my last hope and he proved his true power even with my sister, she welcomed her first child after 4years of marriage. Everything said about lord abu and his work are true, he taught me so many ways to deal with any forms of pressure in life. So glad am redeemed spiritually. his eamil address again is lordabutemple@yahoo.com or website http://lordabu.wixsite.com/http

    We would all, for the sake of America, like to give Trump the benefit of the doubt and assume that his immigration policies in asylum, refugee and all other areas of immigration will be driven by rational considerations, not solely by a desire to reward the white nationalist voters who helped him win the White House.

    His promise in his November 8 victory speech to be president of all Americans, without regard to race or religion, was a hopeful sign in that direction.

    But Trump's reliance on immigrant-hating Republican advisers such as Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions and, reportedly, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, together with the wild and inflammatory remarks Trump has made about non-white immigrants during his campaign, and the two decades of Republican agitation and legislation against mainly non-white immigrants that preceded Trump and, arguably, led to his nomination and election as president, are less hopeful signs for the future.

    Thank you Roger - I agree with what you say (that we need more political discourse on ilw and that Trump is an emergency). My only quibble is that I do not think he is honest about certain things - taxes, ties to Russia, treatment of women. I also fear that he might win, and wonder what it will feel like to have David Duke marching down Pennsylvania Avenue in celebration.
