Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

description

  1. US Citizen Sues after Being Detained by ICE

    by , 07-07-2017 at 08:47 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    A U.S. citizen is arguing that his detention pursuant to an ICE immigration detainer violated his Fourth Amendment right to be free from unreasonable seizure, violated his substantive due process right under the Fourteenth Amendment to be free from false imprisonment, and constituted unlawful imprisonment under Florida law. He has requested compensatory damages, attorney's fees, and any other equitable relief the Court deems just and proper.

    From the Complaint for Damages:

    Miami-Dade County unlawfully arrested and detained Plaintiff Garland Creedle solely for civil immigration purposes, even though Mr. Creedle is a U.S. citizen who cannot be deported. The County voluntarily detained Mr. Creedle at the request of federal immigration authorities of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The detention occurred pursuant to a directive from Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez that requires the Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation Department (MDCR) to deny release for 48 hours or more to any person who is the subject of a check-the-box immigration detainer request.

  2. ICE Arrests Return to 2014 Obama Levels

    by , 05-19-2017 at 08:37 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Immigration and Customs Enforcement has issued statistics relating to enforcement during President Trump's first 100 days:

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – In the 100 days since President Donald J. Trump signed Executive Orders (EOs) regarding immigration enforcement priorities, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has arrested more than 41,000 individuals who are either known or suspected of being in the country illegally. This reflects an increase of 37.6 percent over the same period in 2016.

    Between Jan. 22 and April 29, 2017, ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) deportation officers administratively arrested 41,318 individuals on civil immigration charges. Between Jan. 24 and April 30, 2016, ERO arrested 30,028.


    It should be noted that the current enforcement activities are a return to the levels seen under President Obama from 2014.

    Via NPR's Latino USA:

    Although the ICE arrests listed in the latest release reflect an increase from 2016, the 41,318 individuals arrested from January 22 to April 29, 2017 are more in line with statistics from 2014 and earlier:

  4. A Primer on ICE Immigration Raids

    by , 02-14-2017 at 10:37 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    The good people at Syracuse University's TRAC Immigration have done it again. They just released a primer on ICE immigration raids.


    From the primer:

    According to ICE, 65,332 individuals apprehended by ICE officers were removed during FY 2016[1]. This works out to roughly 1,250 per week.

    However, only a small part of this weekly average of 1,250 apprehensions and removals last year represented ICE arrests of individuals who were picked up directly from the community in which they lived. For simplicity, we refer to this kind of arrest as "community arrests." They are arrests made through ICE raids, or when ICE agents knock on someone's door seeking to arrest the person that lives there.


    Most ICE apprehensions were not these kinds of community arrests. Instead, most of these estimated weekly 1,250 ICE apprehensions happened when ICE assumed custody of individuals held by another law enforcement agency. Many of these apprehensions occurred when ICE took individuals into custody from the prison or jail facility where they had been serving time for their criminal conviction. This was coordinated through ICE's Criminal Alien Program (CAP).


    Still others were transferred to ICE CAP custody after they were picked up and fingerprinted by local law enforcement agencies on a non-immigration matter. ICE became aware of these arrests since all fingerprints local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies submit to the FBI are now automatically passed along to ICE. ICE checks these against its records to see if the individual may be deportable.

  5. STATEMENT BY SENATORS McCAIN & GRAHAM ON EXECUTIVE ORDER ON IMMIGRATION

    by , 01-29-2017 at 05:03 PM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Washington, D.C. *– U.S. Senators John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) released the following statement on the President’s executive order on immigration:

    “Our government has a responsibility to defend our borders, but we must do so in a way that makes us safer and upholds all that is decent and exceptional about our nation.


    “It is clear from the confusion at our airports across the nation that President Trump’s executive order was not properly vetted. We are particularly concerned by reports that this order went into effect with little to no consultation with the Departments of State, Defense, Justice, and Homeland Security.


    “Such a hasty process risks harmful results. We should not stop green-card holders from returning to the country they call home. We should not stop those who have served as interpreters for our military and diplomats from seeking refuge in the country they risked their lives to help. And we should not turn our backs on those refugees who have been shown through extensive vetting to pose no demonstrable threat to our nation, and who have suffered unspeakable horrors, most of them women and children.


    “Ultimately, we fear this executive order will become a self-inflicted wound in the fight against terrorism. At this very moment, American troops are fighting side-by-side with our Iraqi partners to defeat ISIL. But this executive order bans Iraqi pilots from coming to military bases in Arizona to fight our common enemies. Our most important allies in the fight against ISIL are the vast majority of Muslims who reject its apocalyptic ideology of hatred. This executive order sends a signal, intended or not, that America does not want Muslims coming into our country. That is why we fear this executive order may do more to help terrorist recruitment than improve our security.”
