Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Federal Judge: Jailing Refugee Children is Fundamentally Wrong on So Many Levels

Rate this Entry
Judge Dean D. Pregerson stated the obvious: jailing refugee children is “fundamentally wrong on so many levels.” I will update you as soon as a decision is rendered.

Via Latino Rebels:

Monday morning in a Los Angeles federal courtroom, Judge Dean D. Pregerson became the first judge of any kind (federal, immigration or state) to give a hearing to four Central American children (ages 3, 4, 8 and 16) who have been detained at Berks Family Prison for the past two years. The children all have approved Special Immigrant Juvenile Status petitions, which means that the federal government has affirmed that they are vulnerable children who have been abused, neglected or abandoned, and they qualify for “green cards” on that basis. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has taken the position that, essentially, the children can be detained and deported up until the moment that they have their green cards in hand. Attorneys for the children argued that this violates a consent decree entered into by the government.

    Don't I vaguely remember writing a comment or two about how Barack Obama was the "John the Baptist" for deportations?
