Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

description

  1. Rally Calling for Support for the One Day To Protect New Yorkers Act

    by , 05-16-2018 at 08:47 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    On May 22nd, the Immigrant Defense Project, Fortune Society, and over 100 advocates and elected officials, are heading to Albany to hold a rally calling on the legislature to support the One Day To Protect New Yorkers Act a bill that would reduce the maximum sentence for a Class A Misdemeanor by just one day, from 365 to 364.

    This small change would give federal immigration judges the authority to exercise discretion in more deportation cases and would protect thousands of New Yorkers facing harsh immigration consequences stemming from a misdemeanor offense.

    Please help us spread the word about the rally, and raise awareness of the bill, which could save many vulnerable individuals from being permanently separated from their families and communities. Here's the social media toolkit with sample messaging and graphics to share with your networks.

  2. Trump Administration Preparing to Take Refugee Children from their Mothers

    by , 05-16-2018 at 08:15 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Reminiscent of the Obama administration's strategy of jailing refugee mothers with children fleeing violence in deportation internment camps to "send a message," the Trump administration has decided to up the ante. The Washington Post reports that the Trump administration intends to rip immigrant children from the arms of their mothers when they arrive at our borders and detain them on military bases. It should be noted that both policies are merely varying degrees of horrific.

    From The Washington Post:

    According to an email notification sent to Pentagon staffers, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will make site visits at four military installations in Texas and Arkansas during the next two weeks to evaluate their suitability to shelter children.

    The bases would be used for minors under 18 who arrive at the border without an adult relative or after the government has separated them from their parents. HHS is the government agency responsible for providing minors with foster care until another adult relative can assume custody.
