Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

  1. ICE Responds to New York Governor Cuomo

    by , 04-26-2018 at 06:00 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    STATEMENT FROM ICE DEPUTY DIRECTOR THOMAS D. HOMAN IN RESPONSE TO GOVERNOR CUOMO

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) sent this bulletin at 04/25/2018 07:39 PM EDT


    For Immediate Release For media inquiries about ICE activities, operations, or policies, contact the ICE Office of Public Affairs at (202) 732-4242.

    STATEMENT FROM ICE DEPUTY DIRECTOR THOMAS D. HOMAN:

    “As a native New Yorker who began my law enforcement career as a police officer in the state, I was disappointed to learn about Governor Cuomo's grandstanding today over the issue of immigration enforcement. The Governor's comments were inaccurate and an insult to ICE's sworn law enforcement officers who conduct their lawful mission professionally and with integrity. These brave men and woman leave the safety of their homes everyday to protect this great nation and our communities. ICE cannot and will not cease and desist from fulfilling our agency’s congressionally mandated mission of enforcing federal law.

    “Reflecting our commitment to public safety, since September 2016, ICE has arrested nearly 5,000 criminal aliens in New York—individuals with a criminal conviction in addition to their violation of immigration laws
    . Many of these arrests were conducted at large in the community, which ICE is increasingly forced to do due to sanctuary policies in the state that prevent us from taking custody of criminal aliens in the secure confines of a jail. The Governor supports these policies at the expense of the safety of the very same communities he took an oath to protect.

    "Through Operation Matador, an operation focused on dangerous MS-13 gang members and associates in New York, ICE has arrested 484 individuals for both criminal and/or immigration violations. ICE has increased our resources and assistance upstate to assist local law enforcement in opioid and fentanyl investigations and dismantling cross border crime.


    “With respect to the cases the Governor mentioned, Ravi Ragbir, arrested in Staten Island, is a convicted aggravated felon in addition to his immigration violations. Marcial DeLeon-Aguilar, also a criminal alien, arrested in Rome, New York, is a three-time prior deportee who has felony criminal convictions for reckless aggravated assault and illegal re-entry- also a felony.


    “In each targeted enforcement action in which these specific individuals were sought, ICE officers acted professionally and within their legal authorities under federal immigration law.


    "ICE will continue to protect New York communities against public safety and national security threats and it is false and offensive for the Governor to say otherwise."

  2. Justice Department Reverses Course on Suspending Legal Assistance Program for Detained Immigrants

    by , 04-26-2018 at 05:39 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Via the Washington Post:

    After objections from immigration lawyers and lawmakers, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Wednesday that he would not suspend a legal-aid program for detained immigrants while it undergoes a review.

    The government-funded Legal Orientation Program, launched in 2003 under President George W. Bush, was created to ensure that immigrants know their rights and legal options in court. It serves more than 50,000 detained immigrants facing deportation proceedings each year.


    Sessions, an immigration hawk, said the U.S. immigration courts had planned to suspend the program starting as early as next week. At a budget hearing before a Senate appropriations subcommittee, he signaled that he had received questions about pausing the program from lawmakers in both parties, including the subcommittee’s chairman, Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.), and its ranking Democratic member, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (N.H.).

  3. Undocumented Transgender Woman Taken into Custody After Filing For Protective Order

    by , 04-25-2018 at 02:33 PM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Via NPR's Latino USA:

    In February of 2017, an undocumented transgender woman named Estrella González filed a protective order in an El Paso County courthouse. The judge granted her a protective order. Shortly after the protective order was granted, she was approached by immigration enforcement agents who had been waiting for her. She is facing federal charges as a result of her apprehension.

  4. Immigration Judge Earle Wilson Repeatedly Finds that Victims of Rape Do Not Qualify for Asylum

    by , 04-24-2018 at 10:31 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Immigration lawyer Bryan Johnson reviewed the FY 2017 BIA remands and underlying decisions of Immigration Judge Earle Wilson. Judge Wilson sits on the immigration court in Atlanta Georgia, which have been infamously called the "lawless court" as a result of alleged pervasive deprivation of due process, and sexism. Judge Wilson has a 97.8 percent denial rate for asylum applications that he presided over between fiscal years 2012 through 2017.

  5. Immigration Court Cases Currently Involve More Long-Time Residents

    by , 04-23-2018 at 09:12 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Via Syracuse University's TRAC:

    Over time, immigration enforcement priorities have varied, as have the ebb and flow of illegal entrants, visa over-stayers, and asylum seekers. Using the court's records on the date of entry of each individual, TRAC calculated the period of time between the entry date and the date of the notice to appear (NTA) that imitated the court case.

    The typical or median length of stay has varied a lot during the period from October 2000 through March of 2018. This typical length of stay - half were less, half were more - varied between almost 5 years down to 0.0 - this is, most had just arrived. Average lengths of stay was somewhat longer than median stays. This is because the average can be skewed upward by a small proportion of individuals who had been in the country for long periods of time.


    These results are plotted in the time series graph at Figure 2. Here the average length of stay is depicted by the bars, while the lower orange line that is superimposed on the bars represents the median years of stay. The upper dark line that usually appears above the bars shows how long the minimum length of time was for the top quarter of all cases. That is, 25 percent of the cases had been in the country this long or longer at the time their cases began.
