Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal


  1. Immigration Reform 101 - Umasking S.744

  2. Matthew Kolken on Air with Reps. Higgins (D) and Collins (R) talking Immigration Reform

    I appeared on WBEN talk radio this morning and had the opportunity to speak to Western New York's two Representatives in Congress, Chris Collins (R- Clarence) and Brian Higgins (D- Buffalo).

    Congressman Collins indicated that he would be willing to vote for reform that included a pathway to citizenship for DREAMers, and a pathway to legalization for the estimated 11 million undocumented people living in our country remarking that we need to "get our head out of the sand, these 11 million people are not going to go away on their own." Cong. Chris Collins (R- Clarence).

    Congressman Higgins was similarly pragmatic stating that he would be willing to consider a piecemeal approach to immigration reform indicating that "We can find the balance here in providing a legal pathway to citizenship, and continuing to realize the great economic benefits of immigration not only throughout the nation, but right here in Western New York." Cong. Brian Higgins (D- Buffalo).

    I couldn't be more proud of Western New York's two Representatives in Congress.

  3. The Obama Administration, Immigration, and Censorship of Dissenting Opinion

    by , 06-20-2013 at 08:00 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    My colleague Bryan Johnson of*Amoache & Johnson, PLLC*wrote a blog yesterday that was critical of a decision of New York Chief Counsel Wen-Ting Cheng. *Mr. Johnson disseminated the blog post through*his Facebook account. Mr. Johnson then disseminated the blog post through his Facebook account.

    Analytic statistics*reveal*that the blog post has been viewed by*33 IP addresses attributable to the *Department of Homeland Security. *According to Mr. Johnson, an IP address attributable to*Facebook also viewed his website yesterday, with one visit occurring a mere 2 minutes after a visit from an IP address located at DHS Headquarters.
    Shortly thereafter, Facebook censored the link to the blog post by invoking a security warning that Mr. Johnson's website has been classified as abusive, proactively blocking any link to the blog. *Now it appears that Mr. Johnson's entire firm website has been similarly blocked by Facebook.
    Next stop, IRS audit.
    Big Brother is watching.

    "Immigration law is a mystery and a mastery of obfuscation, and the lawyers who can figure it out are worth their weight in gold." -Former INS spokeswoman Karen Kraushaar, Washington Post on April 24, 2001.

    Remember in life, you get what you pay for.

  5. ICE Director John Morton Resigns

    by , 06-18-2013 at 10:15 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    It appears John Morton has tendered his resignation.
    From the L.A. Times:

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton announced his resignation Monday after more than four years at the head of the agency.

    A senior Department of Homeland Security official familiar with the matter said that Morton's departure was voluntary but acknowledged that the Obama administration was surprised by the timing as Congress is in the middle of debating a comprehensive overhaul of immigration laws.

    Morton has been hired as Senior Vice President of Capital One Financial Corp. heading compliance starting this August.
    I will always remember him as the man that was "pleased" to report that in a six month period in 2011 his office deported 46,486 parents of United States citizens.
    More rats from a sinking ship.
