Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

description

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. SCOTUS to Hear Arguments on When Time Stops Cutting off Cancellation of Removal Eligibility

    by , 04-23-2018 at 08:48 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Today the Supreme Court will hear arguments on the case of Pereira v. Sessions.

    The question presented is: "Whether, to trigger the stop-time rule by serving a“notice to appear under section 1229(a),” the government must “specify” the items listed in § 1229(a)’s definition of a “notice to appear,” including “[t]he time and place at which the proceedings will be held.”

    ICE arrests 33 with history of human rights violation across the US during Operation No Safe Haven IV

    WASHINGTON — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations arrested 33 fugitives sought for their roles in known or suspected human rights violations during a nationwide operation this week.

    During the three-day operation that concluded Wednesday, the ICE National Fugitive Operations Program in coordination with the ICE Human Rights Violators and War Crimes Center and the ICE National Criminal Analysis and Targeting Center (NCATC), arrested these fugitives via the ICE field offices of Atlanta; Baltimore; Boston; Chicago; Denver; Detroit; Houston; Los Angeles; Miami; New Orleans; New York City; Philadelphia; Phoenix; Seattle; San Francisco; and St. Paul, Minnesota.

    The foreign nationals arrested during this operation all have outstanding removal orders and are subject to repatriation to their countries of origin. Of the 33 known or suspected human rights violators arrested during Operation No Safe Haven IV, eight individuals are also criminal aliens with convictions for crimes including, but not limited to battery, weapons offenses, driving while intoxicated, and resisting arrest. This operation surpassed the number of known or suspected human rights violators arrested during the first nationwide No Safe Haven operation, which took place in September 2014.

    “This operation continues ICE’s work to ensure that the United States does not serve as a safe haven for those who commit human rights violations in their countries of origin,” said Thomas D. Homan, Deputy Director of ICE. “We will continue to pursue these individuals as priorities for enforcement— using our agency’s unique authorities to investigate criminal activity and to enforce immigration laws.”

    Those arrested across the country included:


    • Four Chinese individuals—some of whom were hospital employees—who assisted in or directly conducted forced abortions and sterilizations upon victims in China;
    • A former intelligence officer who surveilled and arrested dozens of targets subsequently tortured in Central America;
    • A soldier in Central America who guided the military to a specific village for the purpose of killing its residents;
    • A ranking intelligence officer from the Middle East whose surveillance information led to the arrest, torture, and murder of those his unit targeted;
    • A group leader in East Africa who used violence to force victims into Female Genital Mutilation.


    ICE is committed to rooting out known or suspected human rights violators who seek a safe haven in the United States. ICE's Human Rights Violators and War Crimes Center investigates human rights violators who try to evade justice by seeking shelter in the United States, including those who are known or suspected to have participated in persecution, war crimes, genocide, torture, extrajudicial killings, and the use or recruitment of child soldiers. These individuals may use fraudulent identities or falsified records to enter the country and attempt to blend into communities in the United States.
    Members of the public who have information about foreign nationals suspected of engaging in human rights abuses or war crimes are urged to contact ICE by calling the toll-free ICE tip line at 1-866-347-2423 or internationally at 001-1802-872-6199. They can also email HRV.ICE@ice.dhs.gov or complete ICE’s online tip form.

    The HRVWCC was established in 2009 to further ICE’s efforts to identify, locate and prosecute human rights abusers in the United States, including those who are known or suspected to have participated in persecution, war crimes, genocide, torture, extrajudicial killings, female genital mutilation and the use or recruitment of child soldiers. The HRVWCC leverages the expertise of a select group of agents, lawyers, intelligence and research specialists, historians and analysts who direct the agency’s broader enforcement efforts against these offenders.

    Since 2003, ICE has arrested more than 395 individuals for human rights-related violations of the law under various criminal and/or immigration statutes. During that same period, ICE obtained deportation orders against and physically removed 835 known or suspected human rights violators from the United States. Additionally, ICE has facilitated the departure of an additional 112 such individuals from the United States.

    Currently, HSI has more than 130 active investigations into suspected human rights violators and is pursuing more than 1,750 leads and removals cases involving suspected human rights violators from 95 different countries. Since 2003, the HRVWCC has issued more than 74,000 lookouts for individuals from more than 110 countries and stopped over 234 human rights violators and war crimes suspects from entering the U.S.

    The NCATC provided critical investigative support for this operation, including criminal and intelligence analysis from a variety of sources. The NCATC provides comprehensive analytical support to aid the at-large enforcement efforts of all ICE components.

    ICE credits the success of this operation to the combined efforts of the U.S. National Central Bureau-Interpol Washington, and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
