Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

description

  1. Former Priest Agrees to Deportation to Avoid Sexual Abuse Trial

    by , 08-25-2017 at 08:47 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Via The Chicago Tribune:

    Former Aurora priest Alfredo Pedraza-Arias asked a federal judge in June for a "voluntary removal" from the United States, a decision Kane County prosecutors suggest he made to evade a trial on charges of sexually abusing two young girls.
    That allegation by prosecutors is contained in a third motion seeking to have 51-year-old Arias' bail revoked in order to delay his deportation until after he stands trial beginning Sept. 18.

  2. They Got Hurt At Work — Then They Got Deported

    by , 08-17-2017 at 06:22 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Via NPR:

    At age 31, Nixon Arias cut a profile similar to many unauthorized immigrants in the United States. A native of Honduras, he had been in the country for more than a decade and had worked off and on for a landscaping company for nine years. The money he earned went to building a future for his family in Pensacola, Fla. His Facebook page was filled with photos of fishing and other moments with his three boys, ages 3, 7 and 8.

    But in November 2013, that life began to unravel.

    Via the ACLU:

    We obtained records of 149 cases of reported physical and sexual abuse on unaccompanied minors by border officers. https://t.co/e0VSgPTJnD— ACLU National (@ACLU) August 10, 2017


    “There is a clear history of agents and officers engaging in what I believe was serious misconduct, documented by my office, in many instances who received little or no discipline whatsoever as a result,” said James Tomsheck, the former head of internal affairs for U.S. Customs and Border Protection, who has become a sharp critic of the agency after being ousted amid controversy."

  4. New Web Tool Maps Cases Pending in Immigration Court

    by , 08-10-2017 at 10:34 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Via Syracuse University's TRAC:

    The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University has just released a brand new web mapping application that allows the public to examine for the very first time the number of individuals residing in each state, county, and local community within a county, who have pending cases before the Immigration Court.

    Using this new interactive web tool, the location of individuals involved in Immigration Court cases can be displayed based upon each individual's recorded home address. Where the individual is detained, the address shown may be that of the detention facility where the individual is being held.

    While TRAC's original backlog tool tabulated cases for each Immigration Court and hearing location, each court covers a wide geographic area - sometimes encompassing several states. Thus, only a very gross picture of the location where cases were situated was possible.

    TRAC's new mapping tool, in contrast, uses the individualized location where each person appearing before the court currently resides. Users can therefore pinpoint with great precision just where cases are located throughout the country.

  5. Immigration Court Dispositions Drop 9.3 Percent Under Trump

    by , 08-10-2017 at 09:56 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Via Syracuse University's TRAC:

    The latest available case-by-case data indicate that Immigration Court dispositions have dropped by 9.3 percent since President Trump assumed office. While a larger proportion of this declining total consist of removal orders, cases closed during the past five months (February 2017-June 2017) totaled only 77,084 cases as compared with 84,956 for the same five-month period during 2016[1].

    This decline has contributed to the court's growing backlog of cases. The backlog reached a record 610,524 cases as of June 30, 2017. This is up from 598,943 at the end of May.
