Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal


  1. Under Obama Pending Deportations Reach an All-Time High

    by , 05-24-2010 at 01:25 PM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Obama's 1,000 deportations per day mandate is being felt in our Nation's immigration Courts.   Transactional
    Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), a data gathering, data
    research and data distribution organization at Syracuse University, has reported that at the end of March 2010 there are 242,776 unresolved immigration court cases, a new all-time high. An analysis of the data reveals that the immigration court backlog is growing by 6.3 percent since TRAC's last report at the end of 2009.  This number is 30.4% higher than it was 18 months ago prior to Obama's election.   The added pressure on our immigration courts has resulted in the increase of the average length of time an individual must wait to have their matter resolved to up to 443
    days.Is this the "Change" you believed in?
  2. New Board of Immigration Appeals Decision re: Limitations for filing a motion to reopen

    by , 05-24-2010 at 06:54 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    The Board of Immigration Appeals has just issued the following decision: Matter of MONGES-Garcia, 25 I&N Dec. 246 (BIA 2010).The Board ruled that1) The 90-day time limitation for filing a motion to reopen in 8 C.F.R. 1003.23(b)(1)(2010) applies to motions to reopen in absentia deportation orders for the purpose of adjusting status, whether filed before or after the 1996 promulgation of the regulations.

    (2) The 5-year limitation on discretionary relief for failure to appear at deportation proceedings under former section 242B(e)(1) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. 1252b(e)(1) (1994), is not in conflict with, and does not provide an exception to, the 90-day deadline for filing a motion to reopen in 8 C.F.R. 1003.23(b)(1).
  3. Study: Under Obama 50% of all Federal Prosecutions are for Minor Immigration Violations

    by , 05-21-2010 at 06:31 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse on the immigration front, it got worse.The American Immigration Council, Immigration Policy Center (IPC) has just issued a press release that shines a bright spotlight on what the Obama administration is doing to non-violent immigration violators in the United States.A January 2010 study done by the Warren Institute, and a second study done by
    Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) examine the impact of Operation Streamline, which targets nonviolent border-crossers for federal criminal prosecution.   These studies reveal that in President Obama's first year in office he has prosecuted more non-violent immigration related crimes than any President in the history of our country. According to the data, under Obama 50% of all federal criminal
    prosecutions are for
    immigration violations, many of which involve illegal entry, while
    prosecution of violent crime has actually decreased.  The end result is that under Obama's watch billions of dollars have been allocated towards targeting non-violent immigration violators for criminal prosecution.  Is this how you want your tax dollar spent?  The bottom line is this: President Obama's position on immigration is right in line with what is going on in the State of Arizona, and he is a hypocrite when he chastises Arizona lawmakers for doing THE EXACT SAME THING that he has been doing since taking office: targeting immigrants. So Mr. President, when do you plan on prosecuting the real criminals who have actually engaged in serious crimes
    drugs, weapons, and organized crime? The answer must be only after you have finished destroying millions of American families with your 1,000 deportation per day mandate.We are on to you Mr. President, and in 2012 we won't be fooled again.
  4. Michelle Obama Between a Rock and an Immigration Place

    by , 05-20-2010 at 11:55 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Michelle Obama was given the unenviable task of having to answer for her husband's failed immigration policies yesterday.  I don't feel for her, as I am given this task on a daily basis: having to tell a family that mommy or daddy won't be around anymore because of the President's 1,000 person per day deportation record.We can only hope that Michelle gave Barrack an earful after dinner.
  5. Pennsylvania considers entering the Deportation Business

    by , 05-11-2010 at 08:06 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Pennsylvania State Representative Daryl Metcalfe speaks on Fox News about his support of a State Immigration law similar to Arizona's that is being proposed in Pennsylvania.  Governor Edward G. Rendell opposes turning the State of Pennsylvania into another Arizona, and it is unlikely that should a bill pass the legislature that he would sign it into law.
