  1. Trump Reverts to Same Malicious, Demagogic Attacks He Once Made Against Mexicans by Calling Diversity Immigrants "Worst of the Worst". Roger Algase

    Way back in June 2015, before we all got used to Donald Trump's anti-immigrant rants, he shocked the conscience of America and the world, by launching a hate-filled attack against Mexican immigrants as "criminals" and "rapists", beginning with the words that Mexico is "not sending us their best people."

    Now, using very similar language, Trump is demonizing over a million people who have immigrated legally to the US in the past 2 decades and caused few, if any problems for this country under the diversity green card visa lottery program.

    To be continued.

  2. Report Documents Concerns about ICE Detainee Treatment and Care at Detention Facilities

    by , 12-15-2017 at 08:09 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Via The Office of the Inspector General:

    In response to concerns raised by immigrant rights groups and complaints to the Office of Inspector General (OIG) Hotline about conditions for detainees held in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement(ICE) custody, we conducted unannounced inspections of five detention facilities to evaluate their compliance with ICE detention standards.

    Our inspections of five detention facilities raised concerns about the treatment and care of Ice detainees at four of the facilities visited. Overall,we identified problems that undermine the protection of detainees’ rights, their humane treatment, and the provision of a safe and healthy environment. Although the climate and detention conditions varied among the facilities and not every problem was present at all of them, our observations, interviews with detainees and staff,and our review of documents revealed several issues. Upon entering some facilities, detainees were housed incorrectly based on their criminal history. Further, in violation of standards, all detainees entering one facility were strip searched.Available language services were not always used to facilitate communication with detainees. Some facility staff reportedly deterred detainees from filing grievances and did not thoroughly document resolution of grievances. Staff did not always treat detainees respectfully and professionally, and some facilities may have misused segregation. Finally, we observed potentially unsafe and unhealthy detention conditions.

    MU Law Analysis

    All Other: The EB-2 has been current for many years. The EB-3 is also current and is expected to remain current for the foreseeable future.

    China (mainland-born): Both China EB-2 and EB-3 progressed about one month. The China EB-3 remains more favorable than Chinese EB-2. The odd situation of China EB-3 progressing faster than China EB-2 will remain to be the case for the foreseeable future.

    India: Both India EB-2 and EB-3 progressed about two weeks, which is about what we expect that the monthly progressions will be in FY 2018. MU suspects that EB-3 will not progress at any notable rate until at least the India EB-3 date moves past the Visa Gate date of August 2007.

    Mexico: Mirrors All Other in analysis.

    Philippines: The Philippine EB-3 date moved one month, after not moving in the December 2017 Visa Bulletin. Because of increased demand will expect slower progressions in the FY2018, progressing no more than 1-2 months per Visa Bulletin.

  4. Like it or hate it, Trumpís immigration enforcement is failing. By Nolan Rappaport

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has released its FY2017 immigration enforcement report. It indicates that President Trump has reduced the number of illegal border crossings, but it shows no progress at all on reducing the number of undocumented aliens who are in the United States already.

    An immigration court backlog crisis is making it extremely difficult for him to move new cases through removal proceedings.

    Where enforcement is now.

    Removals have actually gone down under the Trump administration:

    DHS claims this is because fewer aliens are being apprehended in the vicinity of the border, which is where most removals take place. Trump has succeeded in reducing the number of illegal border crossings by reversing the damage President Obama did to border security with his interior enforcement policies.

    When Barack Obama was president, he focused his immigration enforcement efforts on aliens who had been convicted of serious crimes or who had been caught near the border after making an illegal entry, and he protected aliens here unlawfully who were not in a priority category.

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers were required to obtain permission from a Field Office Director before arresting an apparently deportable alien who was not in a priority category.

    This created what I called a ďhome free magnet.Ē Aliens wanting to enter the United States illegally knew that they would be safe from deportation once they had reached the interior of the country unless they were convicted of a serious crime. This was a powerful incentive to do whatever was necessary to cross the border into the United States.

    Trump destroyed this magnet with tough campaign rhetoric and his Executive Order, Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States, which greatly expanded enforcement priorities. No deportable alien is safe under President Trumpís enforcement policies.

    In April 2017, CBP reported a sharp decline in the number of aliens apprehended along the Southwest border, and in the number of aliens who were found inadmissible at ports of entry.

    But border security just keeps new aliens from entering the country illegally. It does not reduce the population of undocumented aliens who are in the country already, and this is where Trumpís enforcement program is failing.
