  3. 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.
  4. Attorneys call for Closure of Family Deportation Jail

    From SunHerald.com:

    A group of immigration attorneys and advocates representing mothers and children being held at a family immigration detention center in Pennsylvania have requested the state attorney general close the facility.

    The Berks County Residential Center is unlawfully imprisoning children under Pennsylvania law, according to Attorney Matthew Archambeault, who wrote the joint letter to Attorney General Kathleen Kane. He argues Pennsylvania law is clear in that only children who have been declared delinquent or are awaiting delinquency adjudication may be detained.

    Here's the letter:

  5. Iowa's "Pastor Max" Deported

    by , 03-23-2015 at 11:12 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    It has been reported that Iowa Mennonite Pastor Max Villatoro has been deported to Honduras leaving four United States children without a father. A motion to reopen was filed on his behalf to permit him to apply for asylum, and he was deported before there was a ruling on it. I'm curious to know if an emergency motion for stay of removal was also filed, as this information hasn't been included in the reports. If anyone knows please reach out to me.
