  1. 163 Immigrants arrested in Virginia in 3-day immigration sweep

    by , 03-23-2011 at 10:17 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    The Washington Post has reported that 163 immigrants were arrested in Northern Virginia over a three-day enforcement surge involving federal, state and local police.  Of the 163 individuals arrested, 130 had criminal records: 85  with felonies and 45 with misdemeanors.
    The following video is courtesy of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.






  2. Somali Asylee Sues His Torturer in U.S. Court

    A Somali human rights activist who received asylum in Great Britain has sued his alleged torturer, Abdi Aden Magan, in a U.S. District Court in Ohio.  According to the Associated Press:
    Abukar Hassan Ahmed filed suit against his alleged torturer.
    The lawsuit claims Abdi Aden Magan of Columbus[, Ohio] authorized the torture of Abukar Hassan Ahmed when Magan served as investigations chief of the National Security Service of Somalia, a force dubbed the "Gestapo of Somalia."  The suit... seeks unspecified damages from Magan, who served under Somali dictator Mohamed Siad Barre.
    The allegations are a chance for Ahmed to tell the world what happened to him, said Andrea Evans, legal director of the Center for Justice & Accountability, a San Francisco-based center that has brought a number of similar lawsuits.  "We see it as a much broader call for justice than just financial gain," Evans said. "It really is kind of telling history accurately."
    Last week, the State Department weighed in with a letter indicating that Mr. Magan does not enjoy immunity from suit:
    [T]aking into account the relevant principles of customary international law, and considering the overall impact of this matter on the foreign policy of the United States, the Department of State has determined that Defendant Magan does not enjoy immunity from the jurisdiction of U.S. courts.
    I wonder about the immigration status of the alleged torturer, Mr. Magan.  If the civil suit demonstrates that he is, in fact, a torturer, it seems to me that DHS should move to deport Mr. Magan, or perhaps DOJ would choose to prosecute him criminally (for the torture and-most likely-for committing immigration fraud by lying to cover up the torture).  Our nation should not be in the business of harboring human rights abusers, and once such an abuser is identified, we should move swiftly to see that justice is done.

  3. EB-5 Visa ‚Äď Does it work? YES ‚Äď Should you believe all you read? NO

    The EB-5 visa has been available in its current format for several years and as a result there is a fair amount of evidence to draw on regarding its success, as well as some failures.
    Those brave pioneers who first charted the EB-5 route some six years ago may now be in a position to request their investment back and obtain US citizenship if they so choose. 
    The EB-5 investor visa program has many benefits but an ongoing problem remains for some seeking information direct from the regional centers. The regional centers want, and indeed need, to sell places and sometimes they may be economical with the facts in order to win over the client and tempt them away from a competing regional center project.
    For example, if you have a client in a hurry to obtain an EB-5 visa you may be drawn to a particular regional center project that makes a number of claims including that it has a faster processing time.
    Here is an example of a quote from a regional center:
    "Credibility of the State of XXXXXXX with governmental responsibility and oversight means that investors' petitions are given priority by CIS, resulting in a faster path to approval"
    Enquiries to the USCIS into the accuracy of this statement by independent EB-5 investigators resulted in the following official response:
    "XXXXXXX Regional Center petitions are not given priority over other Regional Center petitions".
    Thus the official response from the Government Agency directly contradicts the claim in the sales material from the Regional Center Program.
    Are any other statements made by this regional center inaccurate?
    Footnote: This subject was first covered on August 4th, 2010 at Which EB5 Blog. It is reproduced here due to the statement by the regional center featured above still being used by that same regional center on their website eighteen months later.

    1. Comment: I Want My Immigration Daily - In their legitimate

    zeal to protect their customers from spam, Internet Service

  5. March 21 - Japan and Haiti

    -----------------IMMIGRATION DAILY FROM ILW.COM------------------

    March 21, 2011

    http://www.ilw.com/immigrationdaily/digest/2011,0321.shtm

    ITEMS

    1. Comment: Japan And Haiti - The recent 9.0 earthquake in Japan

    (fifth largest in the world since 1900) and the ensuing tsunami

    have wrecked havoc on the towns on Japan's northeast coast. Since

    the casualty figures from those towns still number in the

    hundreds, and since those towns were about 90% destroyed, the

    official count of 20,000+ dead and missing is likely to be

    revised upward significantly as the weeks ahead unfold, perhaps

    into the 50,000 to 100,000 range. As sad as this destruction is,

    this does not represent a catastrophe for immigration purposes,

    in terms of needing a US government immigration initiative - in

    other words TPS for Japanese nationals would not be wise. On the

    other hand, the Haitian situation, even one year into the

    earthquake disaster there, constitutes an ongoing immigration

    crisis for the US, and necessitates a generous benefits policy,

    here's why:

    1) The Haitian calamity of 2010 caused over 200,000 deaths,

    making it one of the top 10 natural disasters of all time.

    Japan's disaster, by contrast, would not even make it into the

    top 10 of the last 100 years,

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_natural_disasters

    even if the death toll in Japan rose to 100,000. More

    importantly, in terms of the percentage of the population killed

    (Japan has over 12 times the population of Haiti, hence at least

    12 times the ability to recover), Haiti's misfortune is about

    2,500% of Japan's on percentage of population grounds alone. Add

    to this the fact that the GDP per capita in Japan is over 30

    times as much as in Haiti (we are, after all, here comparing one

    of the world's richest countries with one of the poorest). This

    gives Japan the economic wherewithal to absorb the blow, a luxury

    that Haiti lacks (indeed, economic analysis of the tragedy in

    Japan shows minimal economic impact). To put all the above into a

    nutshell, Japan can take care of itself, Haiti plainly couldn't,

    and still can't.

    2) Of much greater import from an immigration viewpoint,

    even should Japan and Haiti be evenly matched in terms of

    population and wealth, it is the distance from US shores that is

    dispositive in determining US policy. A humanitarian crisis in a

    nation a relatively short boat ride away constitutes an immediate

    concern, one in a nation at the other side of the Pacific is a

    lot less significant. As proof of this point is the fact that to

    this day the US Navy and Coast Guard continue to cordon off

    Haiti, to prevent "boat people" arriving on Florida's shores, no

    such deployment will ever be necessary for Japan or any nation

    situated far away from here. Distance matters in real life, and

    hence in making US policy. Haiti's is by far the more serious

    disaster as seen from US shores.

    We are pleased to note that USCIS, from the highest management on

    down, rose to the challenge for Haiti (we are still concerned

    that all benefits fees were not waived for TPS applicants). On

    the other hand, ICE has recently decided to go back to business

    as usual in terms of removing Haitians. With two wars under way

    in Asia (the current, Republican, Secretary of Defense recently

    counseled against getting involved in Asian ground wars), and

    with offensive action under way in North Africa, our national

    policy on cordoning off Haiti is regrettable. USCIS, at least,

    can claim credit for a response in Haiti that America can look

    back on in pride, and more importantly, one that directly

    supported vital national interests.
