Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal


  1. Immigrant families have been targeted for a long time but Trump is unapologetic about it

    LA Times reporter Cindy Carcamo talks immigration with Katy Tur on MSNBC:

    “Immigrant families have been targeted for a long time, under various administrations. Obama did it. Now, it's Trump who is unapologetic about it.” -Cindy Carcamo
  2. Young Girl Previously Detained at Berks Dies a Hero Trying to Save Her Mother

    Please read and click here to help:

    We remember Jennifer as one of the bravest children ever detained here in Berks or anywhere really. She was detained here in Pennsylvania for just about one year in 2014 when our country decided that children should be put in prisons and cages for legally asking for protection. She stood by her mother, strong, while they fought from detention to stay and live here in the United States. Her mother fought just as hard, every single day to protect her daughter. They fought every damn day in detention, against the mistreatment, the abuses, the lack of sleep, lack of personal freedom, until the very day a judge granted them asylum.

    Our office was very affected yesterday to learn of the passing of Jennifer, one of our clients, and one of our children. I cannot begin or imagine how her most amazing mother is coping with this unspeakable tragedy. The very least we can do as a community is to support this mother -- its what we have to do. I know that every mother from Berks is mourning with her and has risen up to support her.

    Please support this mother and help this family with costs that no one should ever have to bear. There was no one braver than Jennifer and her mother.

    Below is the link to her GoFundMe page. Even a modest donation will go a long way, and will be very much appreciated.

  3. ICE arrests 114 workers in immigration raid at Ohio gardening company

    by , 06-06-2018 at 07:47 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Via the Washington Post:

    A swarm of immigration agents arrested more than 100 workers at an Ohio gardening and landscaping company Tuesday morning, one of the largest of several recent workplace raids carried out as part of the Trump administration’s crackdown on immigration enforcement.

    About 200 federal officers blitzed two locations of Corso’s Flower and Garden Center — one in Sandusky, on the shoreline of Lake Erie, and another in nearby Castalia, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement told the Associated Press.

  4. ICE Deportations Only Half Levels of Five Years Ago

    by , 06-05-2018 at 10:24 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Via Syracuse University's TRAC:

    Newly released Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) data-updated through October 2017- provide case-by-case details on each ICE deportation[1]. In general, as shown in Figure 1, ICE deportations have dropped by almost half during the last five years. While there is month-to-month variability, the number deported also has continued to decline since January 2017 when President Trump assumed office. In October 2012, ICE deported 34,543 individuals. By December 2016 that figure had declined to 20,833. And by October 2017 ICE recorded only 18,428 individuals were deported.

  5. Immigrant Army Recruit Faces Deportation Despite Assurances by Mattis

    by , 06-05-2018 at 10:06 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)

    Via Stars & Stripes:

    Immigration authorities began deportation proceedings Monday against a foreign-born military recruit despite a statement by the defense secretary and a new law aimed at protecting foreign recruits and veterans.

    Luo Shu, a Chinese citizen who graduated with a degree in data analytics from George Washington University, was recruited into the Army’s delayed entry program two years ago for his language and professional skills. He was arrested at the Department of Homeland Security Investigations office in Newark, N.J., on Monday after an Army administrative error allowed his service contract to expire before he could pass the Defense Department background checks and ship off to basic training, his lawyer said.
