  1. Even Trump-Friendly Freedom Caucus Doesn't Think that the Wall is Worth a Shutdown. What is the Point of the Wall? Roger Algase

    POLITICO reports that even the Trump-friendly conservative Freedom Caucus doesn't think his border Wall is worth a government shutdown. What purpose is there to the Wall except to fulfill a bombastic campaign promise and humiliate Latino (and by extension) all other non-white immigrants? See:

  2. Where You Live Impacts Ability To Obtain Representation in Immigration Court

    by , 08-30-2017 at 07:54 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)
    Via Syracuse University's TRAC Immigration:

    [N]ewly obtained case-by-case court records show that depending upon the community in which the immigrant resides, the odds of obtaining representation in Immigration Court deportation proceedings varies widely. In some places in the United States the odds are 1 out of 100 of obtaining representation in cases filed in the last 90 days, and rise to only 20 out of 100 for all pending cases. In other communities your chances rise to over 82 out of a 100 of securing an attorney in recently filed cases, and climb to 98 out of 100 for all pending cases.

    These and other findings are based upon very current case-by-case court records that were obtained under the Freedom of information Act and analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University. Information reflects court records as of the end of May 2017.
