Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal


  1. Michelle Obama Between a Rock and an Immigration Place

    by , 05-20-2010 at 10:55 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.
  2. Pennsylvania considers entering the Deportation Business

    by , 05-11-2010 at 07:06 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.

  3. Board of Immigration Appeals Update

    by , 05-08-2010 at 05:22 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    The Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) just issued the following precedent decision that clarifies a previous decision relating to the standards required for a proper determination of whether an asylum application is frivolous.
    Matter of B-Y-, 25 I&N Dec. 236 (BIA 2010) Interim Decision # 3680(1) In making a frivolousness determination, an Immigration Judge may incorporate by reference any factual findings made in support of an adverse credibility finding, so long as the Immigration Judge makes explicit findings that the incredible aspects of the asylum application were material and were deliberately fabricated. Matter of Y-L-, 24 I&N Dec. 151 (BIA 2007), clarified.(2) In considering an asylum applicant's explanations for inconsistencies or discrepancies, an Immigration Judge making a frivolousness determination must separately address the applicant's explanations in the context of how they may have a bearing on the materiality and deliberateness requirements unique to that determination.

    (3) When the required frivolousness warnings have been given to an asylum applicant prior to the merits hearing, the Immigration Judge is not required to afford additional warnings or to seek further explanation in regard to inconsistencies that have become obvious during the course of the hearing.
  4. Minnesota's New Immigration Bill Looks Like Arizona's

    by , 05-07-2010 at 04:50 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Monkey see, monkey do.  Minnesota is now considering a State immigration law that will mirror the new law in the State of Arizona.  Meanwhile in Washington, President Obama has written-off 2010 for immigration reform, wasting another nine months of his Presidency.  With the November elections looming it will be interesting to see how many seats change hands.  If the polling is any indication of things to come, this President will spend the next 2 years in lame duck status, and there will be no hope for immigration reform until 2012 at the earliest.This President's strategy has been clear to me from the start: delay, and then blame the Republicans for his party's lack of action.So much for change we can believe in.
