Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

  1. Commentary Looks Behind the Immigration Advocacy Curtain

    by , 11-09-2015 at 09:43 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Documentary filmmaker Ellin Jimmerson takes an uncomfortable look behind the immigration advocacy curtain in her latest op-ed entitled "Trump, SNL, Obama and the Problem of Immigrants' Friends."

    She writes:

    "To be sure, Trump is dangerous. But he does not come close to being as dangerous as the immigrant 'advocates' who actually occupy offices, actually have power, and actually are controlling the dialogue among those on the left. It's not immigrants' enemies we need to be worried about. Its their 'goddam friends.' It is these friends who keep me walking the floor at nights."

  2. Report: 4 of 5 Immigrants deported through Criminal Alien Program aren't Criminals

    by , 11-05-2015 at 09:57 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    As I have been explaining for years, President Obama is not focused on deporting serious criminals.

    From The American Immigration Council:

    "Based on government data and documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), the report examines CAP’s evolution, operations, and outcomes between fiscal years 2010 and 2013. The data analyzed reveals that the program removed mainly people with no criminal convictions and people who have not been convicted of violent crimes or crimes the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) classifies as serious. During this time period, over 4 out of 5 CAP removals were of individuals with either no conviction or of individuals who have not been convicted of a violent crime or one that the FBI classifies as serious.

    Out of more than half a million CAP removals that took place between FY 2010 and FY 2013, ICE classified the largest share (27.4 percent) as not “definite criminals”—i.e., ICE recorded no criminal conviction. The second- and third-most prevalent categories of CAP removals were of individuals whose “most serious” criminal conviction involved a “traffic offense” (20 percent) and “dangerous drugs” (18 percent), followed by “assault” (6 percent) and “immigration” (5 percent)."

  3. Texas Judge Blocks Licensing of Obama's Deportation Jails for Children

    by , 11-03-2015 at 02:07 PM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    A restraining order has been issued against the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services that temporarily prevents Obama's family deportation internment camps from operating as child care facilities where the administration jails, and tortures immigrant children fleeing unspeakable violence.

    From KSTX San Antonio:

    "A state judge has temporarily halted efforts for two Texas immigration detention centers to be licensed as child care facilities. That's put the future of the centers in Dilley and Karnes in Question.

    A federal judge ordered the detention centers to secure state licenses in order to continue detaining children, many of whom have emigrated from Central America. But the deadline to be in compliance with that rule has already passed."

  4. Enforcement Overdrive: A Comprehensive Assessment of ICE’s "Criminal Alien Program"

    by , 11-02-2015 at 12:46 PM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    For Immediate Release

    November 2, 2015

    Washington D.C. - Today, The American Immigration Council releases Enforcement Overdrive: A Comprehensive Assessment of ICE’s "Criminal Alien Program" by Guillermo Cantor, Ph.D., Mark Noferi, Esq., and Daniel Martinez, Ph.D.

    The Criminal Alien Program (CAP) is a massive enforcement program administered by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and has become the primary channel through which interior immigration enforcement takes place. Between two-thirds and three-quarters of individuals removed from the interior of the United States are removed through CAP. Each year, Congress allocates hundreds of millions of dollars to fund this program. Until now, however, little has been known about how CAP works, whom CAP deports, and whether CAP has been effective in meeting its goals.


    Based on government data and documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), this report examines CAP’s evolution, operations, and outcomes between fiscal years 2010 and 2013 and finds the program removed mainly people with no criminal convictions, and people who have not been convicted of violent crimes or crimes the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) classifies as serious. CAP also has resulted in several anomalies, including that it appears biased against Mexican and Central American nationals. Moreover, the number of CAP removals differs significantly from state to state.

  5. Immigration Courts Completed 7.3 Percent More Cases in FY 2015

    by , 10-22-2015 at 03:09 PM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    From Syracuse University's TRAC Immigration:

    "Immigration Court judges were able to complete almost 200,000 cases last year, up 7.3 percent from the year before, according to the latest available case-by-case court records, current as of the close of fiscal year 2015. Preliminary figures indicate a total of 198,105 case completions for FY 2015 (from October 2014 through September 2015) as compared with 184,597 for FY 2014. Because the total only includes information as of September 30, this number may rise once any delayed recordings of case outcomes become available."
