Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal


  1. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Targets a United States Citizen Journalist

    by , 02-17-2011 at 05:22 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    I bet you thought that if you are a United States citizen that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has no jurisdiction over you. You would think that ICE's express authority only relates to the enforcement of our immigration laws, and if you are a United States citizen you would be free from unwarranted searches and seizures.
    Think again.
    The following video covers a story about United States citizen independent journalist Brandon Jourdan who has been put on a "list" by the Obama administration, which has resulted in his detainment and interrogation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement at JFK airport after arriving from Haiti. Immigration agents confiscated his computer, notes, and camera during a five hour ordeal.
    If you think that maybe this was nothing more than just a simple misunderstanding you would also be wrong. Mr. Jourdan has been harassed like this seven times in the past five years.

    According to Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), a non-partisan research organization the operates out of Syracuse University, the number of pending deportation cases has reached a record 267,752 by the end of December 2010.
    The deportation backlog has grown by 2.6 percent since TRAC's last report three months ago.  This is 44% higher than levels at the end of FY 2008.
