Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal


  1. Senate approves $600 million in border security funds

    by , 08-12-2010 at 08:07 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    "Two senators -- Democrats Charles Schumer of New York and Ben Cardin
    of Maryland -- returned from their August recess Thursday to give their
    chamber's approval for $600 million in emergency funding to help secure
    the U.S.-Mexico border. The measure, which has already been
    approved by the House of Representatives, now advances to President
    Obama's desk to be signed into law. The bill passed by unanimous
    consent, a parliamentary term for a voice vote that doesn't require the
    return of the entire Senate chamber. GOP leaders had agreed to the
    maneuver." -CNN Wire StaffClick here for more of this story.

  4. Obama Administration Pulls a "Bait and Switch" with Fingerprint Sharing Program

    by , 08-10-2010 at 03:25 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    The Associated Press has reported that approximately 47,000 people have been deported after the Obama administration reviewed 3 million sets of
    fingerprints taken from bookings at local jails.  This is being done under a fingerprint-sharing program known as Secure Communities. ICE spokesman Richard Rocca explains that the program has been designed to get rid of the "worst of the worst"
    criminal immigrants from the country. He characterizes the program as "a beneficial partnership tool for ICE and state and local law
    enforcement agencies helping to identify, prioritize and remove
    convicted criminal aliens not only from the communities, but also from
    the country." The numbers tell a different story.  From
    October 2008 through June 2010, 12,293 of the 46,929 people identified through
    Secure Communities were were considered non-criminals and were subsequently deported.Peter
    Markowitz, director of the Immigration Justice Clinic at Benjamin N.
    Cardozo School of Law in New York, has sifted through the numbers.  Mr. Markowitz explains that ICE has "pulled a bait and switch" allocating 
    more time and resources effectuating the deportation of low level or noncriminal aliens than serious criminals.  He explains that this has resulted in a waste of government resources, and detracts from law enforcements real job: to keep us all safe.The Obama administration intends to expand Secure Communities throughout the United States by 2013.  The AP reports that as
    of Aug. 3, 2010, 494 counties and local and state agencies in 27 states were participating in the program.More "Change" you can believe in.
