Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Deportation Cases Scheduled as far out as 2023 and 2024

Rate this Entry
Via Fox 5's Ronica Cleary:

"A story first reported on FOX 5 found that there were a shocking number of individuals waiting for immigration hearings in Arlington Immigration Court. We found there were thousands of hearings waiting in the system, with 380 of them scheduled as far out as 2023 and 2024."

    And what happens if the incoming new president and his new, immigrant-hating attorney general, Jeff Sessions, who will be in charge of the entire immigration court system, decide to lock up all immigrants who are awaiting pending hearing dates until their cases are called some six or seven years into the future?

    Impossible, one might say? Not enough prisons to hold so many people? Not to worry.

    America has just "elected" (with some alleged helpful assistance from Vladimir Putin's hackers, according to our security agencies), one of our greatest builders as our new president.

    Just as he has promised to build a "big, beautiful" 40 or 50 ft. high wall to keep out Mexican and Central American immigrants with the wrong skin color, he is certainly not lacking in the ability to Make America Great with a beautiful new gulag of detention camps, similar to the more than 80 immigrant detention centers which Putin is reportedly building in Russia to hold, not only immigrants, but also Russian citizens who may violate internal residence registration or other immigration laws which apply to everyone, not just foreign citizens. See my December 14 Immigration Daily blog post

    And what is there to limit the new administration to locking up only immigrants? What could prevent the new attorney general from engaging in mass roundups and prosecution of American citizens who knowingly "harbor" or "assist" unauthorized immigrants under INA Section 274?

    We could be hearing a good deal more about this little used, but extremely broad, statute, in the very near future.

    What better way is there to lock up any American who dares to speak out against our new "Leader in Chief" after he takes office? That could certainly create a Furor.

    Roger,

    I'll let you know after my meeting on Monday with the Deputy Chief of staff of a key member of the executive committee of Trump's transition team.
