Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal


  1. Report Reveals that From 2009 to 2014 CBP was Abusing Immigrant Children

    by , 05-23-2018 at 02:07 PM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Via the ACLU:

    Documents obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union featured in a new report released today show the pervasive abuse and neglect of unaccompanied immigrant children detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The report was produced in conjunction with the International Human Rights Clinic at the University of Chicago Law School.

    The report is based on over 30,000 pages of documents dated between 2009 and 2014. The documents were obtained by the ACLU Foundation of San Diego & Imperial Counties and the ACLU Foundation of Arizona through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit co-counseled with Cooley LLP. The documents feature numerous cases of shocking violence and abuse against migrant children, many of whom arrived in the United States fleeing violence in their home countries.

    Examples of the documented abuses include allegations that CBP officials:

    • Punched a child’s head three times
    • Kicked a child in the ribs
    • Used a stun gun on a boy, causing him to fall to the ground, shaking, with his eyes rolling back in his head
    • Ran over a 17-year-old with a patrol vehicle and then punched him several times
    • Verbally abused detained children, calling them dogs and “other ugly things”
    • Denied detained children permission to stand or move freely for days and threatened children who stood up with transfer to solitary confinement in a small, freezing room
    • Denied a pregnant minor medical attention when she reported pain, which preceded a stillbirth
    • Subjected a 16-year-old girl to a search in which they “forcefully spread her legs and touched her private parts so hard that she screamed”
    • Left a 4-pound premature baby and her minor mother in an overcrowded and dirty cell full of sick people, against medical advice
    • Threw out a child’s birth certificate and threatened him with sexual abuse by an adult male detainee.

  2. Trump Admin Says Schools Should Decide Whether to Report Undocumented Kids to ICE

    Simply appalling.

    Via Politico:

    Education Secretary Betsy DeVos said Tuesday that it’s up to individual schools to decide whether to call U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement if they suspect their students are undocumented.

    “That’s a school decision. It’s a local community decision,” DeVos said during testimony before the House Education and the Workforce Committee, adding that “we have laws and we also are compassionate.” Her comments came in her first-ever appearance before the education panel, lasting close to three and a half hours.
