Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal


  1. 4th Circuit: Law Enforcement Officers may not Detain or Arrest Solely on Immigration

    by , 09-04-2013 at 08:21 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in Santos v. Frederick County Bd. of Com'r that absent express direction or authorization by federal statute or federal officials, state and local law enforcement officers may not detain or arrest an individual solely based on known or suspected civil violations of federal immigration law.

    The Court found that where law enforcement officers are not authorized to engage in immigration law enforcement under agreement with the Attorney General they lack authority to enforce civil immigration law and any arrest or seizure predicated on immigration law violations abridge an individual's rights under the Fourth Amendment when such seizure is solely based on an outstanding civil ICE warrant.

  3. Four United We Dream leaders arrested outside an ICE facility in Phoenix

    by , 08-22-2013 at 09:44 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    I just received the following email notification from United We Dream organizer Reyna Montoya:

    Just now, four United We Dream leaders were arrested outside an ICE facility in Phoenix!

    These courageous leaders-- Maria Castro, Alejandra Sanchez, Francisco Luna, and Yadira Garcia, the United 4-- engaged in civil disobedience to protest outrageous deportations that tear our families apart and to call on Congress and the Obama Administration to act.

    Right now, they need you to call to get them released. Call 602-379-3235 (press 2, press 3 and leave a message):

    "I am calling to ask for the immediate release of Alejandra Sanchez, Yadira Garcia, Maria Castro and Francisco Luna: the four people who are currently being detained for standing against senseless deportations and family separations. They are heroes for our community and should be released to continue to advocate for the rights of all American families.

    We have been in front of the ICE facility in downtown Phoenix for the past two days, highlighting the stories of families in deportation like Ardany and Teresa, and calling on Congress and the White House to stop family separations and pass real immigration reform.

    After marching around the ICE office, the United 4 chained themselves to the gate to protest deportations and shut down ICE operations. Their actions were bold and courageous and now, they need our help to make sure they are able to return to their families. Together, we can shine a spotlight on the moral crisis in our nation and the need for our political leaders to act now.

    Call for their release now: 602-379-3235 (press 2, press 3 and leave a message):

    For ALL 11 million,

    Reyna Montoya
