Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal


  1. DHS Admits to Violating Own Policies Regarding Children in Custody

    by , 05-05-2015 at 07:57 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    The following affidavit was discovered by immigration lawyer Bryan Johnson who writes:

    In a sworn affidavit dated February 27, 2015, Chief Border Patrol Agent for the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas, Kevin W. Oaks, admitted to several policies that result in torture of children in border patrol’s holding cells.

    The affidavit was filed by DHS in defense of Plaintiffs’ motion to enforce the Flores Settlement, which is close to a resolution in favor of all of the children victims.

  2. The Detention of Immigrants is a Multi-Billion Dollar Industry

    by , 05-05-2015 at 05:37 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)

    Courtesy of Brave New Films:

    Private prisons such as the CCA (Corrections Corporation of America) own over 200 facilities in the nation and makes a profit close to 5 billion dollars per year on inmates. They rely on anti-immigrant laws like Arizona's SB1070 and copycat laws across the nation for fresh inmates and continual profit.

    5:58 Mother and son, Emily and Logan, suffer the repercussions of private prison greed as they commute to her husband's final court date in Georgia, the victim of anti-immigration laws.

    8:47 "El Refugio" offers free food and overnight housing for families visiting loved ones in the detention centers. The CCA tries to prevent this service by escorting anyone handing out fliers off the premises. Family members share testimonials about how these prisons do not accommodate inmates who have health conditions such as diabetes.

    11:22 Public Health Services denied urgent medical attention to detainee, Roberto Marinez-Medina, who was arrested for not having a valid drivers license. He died a month later.

    14:31 American Legislative Exchange Council, or ALEC, pours millions of dollars into creating anti-immigration laws like SB1070 for their own benefit. ALEC "persuades" town officials. They claim that private prisons cut public budgets, but the reality is different.

    17:12 The detention center of Littlefield, TX sucked the town dry. The city invested a large amount of money into a facility and did not get much in return. Many businesses closed down and the hospital nearly did as well.

    18:40 A former detainee recalls the numerous injustices she lived through in prison.

    23:58 The GEO Group, Inc is heavily invested in providing immigration detention services for the federal government. A mother of a mentally ill man who was detained because of his immigration status shares her story of frustration. He was beaten by officials and sent to the hospital while in custody.

    27:53 An ex-CCA Florida Correctional Officer shares what she has witnessed and why she was terminated. CCA has made it very difficult for her to find a job.

    31:30 Pembroke Pines residents talk about how CCA prisons are affecting their communities. 98% are opposed to the new detention center.

  4. Attorney General Vacates Matter of Silva-Trevino

    by , 04-14-2015 at 08:03 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Attorney General Eric Holder has vacated Matter of Silva-Trevino, 24 I&N Dec. 687 (A.G. 2008), which previously set forth the framework for determining if a criminal offense constitutes a crime involving moral turpitude forming a basis of inadmissibility, and which approach has been rejected by five circuit courts.

  5. Another Obama Deportation Priority Brought to Justice for Overstaying His Visa

    by , 03-24-2015 at 11:25 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)

    From BuffaloNews.com:

    Tali Lopez wants a happy ending to her “fairy tale” story.

    But six months after marrying an old friend and settling in her native Buffalo, Lopez is fighting for her new husband.

    Omar Lopez, a citizen of Spain visiting here on a visa waiver, was arrested after a traffic stop last month and has been held at the Federal Detention Center in Batavia ever since.

    Lopez is battling her husband’s deportation – he could be forced to leave at any time – and plans to host a public rally at 10 a.m. Tuesday in Niagara Square to solicit support for him.

    Friends and family say Lopez’s deportation is an overreaction to a relatively minor infraction. He overstayed his visa waiver by several months.

    Even worse, they say, the government’s prosecution is tearing apart a family with deep roots in Buffalo. The family includes his infant stepdaughter, Mila, whom he plans to adopt, and dozens of relatives.

    Buffalo ICE’s field office director Michael T. Phillips made the decision to deport Mr. Lopez rather than allowing him to apply for his Green Card. ICE's official response: "As a visa overstay, his case is a priority under the agency’s current enforcement strategy, which focuses on individuals who have abused the visa or visa waiver programs. ” ICE spokesman Khaalid Walls.

    Felons not families and all.
