    President Trump said today he is determined that deportations of those who enter the United States illegally proceed quickly, without waiting for court proceedings motorized transportation. “We’re going to use catapults because that’s the fastest way. It’s going to be so fast. Very very fast.” Trump insisted that he would not repeat the mistakes of the past that caused a huge backlash, even from the occasional Republican. “I have ordered that families be launched together, but if they separate while still on a parabolic trajectory through the air that’s not on me.” Others, however, have cast suspicion on claims that...
  • Swedish student who grounded deportation flight faces prosecution

    Sweden is to prosecute the 21-year-old student who single-handedly grounded an aircraft preparing to deport an Afghan asylum seeker. Elin Ersson broadcast her one-woman protest on Facebook in July, during which she refused to sit down on the flight from Landvetter airport in Gothenburg, thereby preventing it from taking off. The video has been watched 13m times. Several other passengers, including an entire football team, joined her protest and an asylum seeker was removed from the plane – to applause from passengers. On Friday, Swedish prosecutors announced that Ersson would be prosecuted at Gothenburg district court “for crimes against the...

    A Somalian whose deportation from Britain was dramatically halted after airline passengers staged a mutiny demanding his release can be exposed today as a convicted gang rapist who was being kicked out of the country because of his sickening crime. Officials escorting Yaqub Ahmed on a flight from Heathrow to Turkey were forced to abandon his deportation when around a dozen holidaymakers who felt sorry for him angrily intervened shortly before take-off. At one stage during the astonishing episode, filmed on mobile phones, one traveller complained: ‘They’re separating him from his family’, while others chanted ‘take him off the plane’....

    My son just sent me a text of Executive Order 13768. This calls for the deportation of anyone accused or convicted of any crime who is not a born US citizen. I have a Green Card, but had a road side DUI in 2011. I paid a fine and took the mandatory Delaware course. No issues prior to then or since. I have been eligible to apply for citizenship for a few years. It took 10 years and $15K to get our green cards legally. I was waiting to see if Hillary won, in which case I did not want...

    ..... ABC News reported that Trump told U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell to make Palij’s deportation “his No. 1 priority when he got to Berlin,” which had to agree to take the deportee. But nothing escapes politicization in these polarized times, and Monday’s announcement was no exception. Critics of Immigration and Customs Enforcement pointed out that the announcement arrived only hours after a special ceremony at the White House honoring the agency. These critics said the timing was intended to deflect the intense scrutiny of the agency’s aggressive tactics in removing undocumented immigrants, regardless of their criminal records. Some...

    A federal judge on Monday ordered a temporary halt to any deportations of immigrant families who were reunited after being separated by the Trump administration at the border. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw imposed a delay of at least a week after a request from the American Civil Liberties Union, which cited "persistent and increasing rumors ... that mass deportations may be carried out imminently and immediately upon reunification." Justice Department attorney Scott Stewart opposed the delay but did not address the rumors in court. He said he would respond later in writing. The judge gave the department until next...

  • Judge Andrew Napolitano: Can Immigrants Be Deported Without A Trial?

    Townhall ^ | 06/28/2018 | Judge Andrew Napolitano
    Last weekend, President Donald Trump argued that those foreigners who enter the United States unlawfully should simply be taken to the border, escorted across it and let go. According to the president, this would save precious government resources, avoid the business of separating children from their parents and free up the Border Patrol and other federal assets to do their jobs. He is undoubtedly correct on the beneficial consequences to the government of forced deportation without due process. Yet deportation without a trial is profoundly unconstitutional. Here is the back story. The nation has been torn apart by the images...

    Okay, this one’s a doozy. Over the last few weeks, here’s what has happened: A photograph went viral, spawning a great left-wing outcry over the fact that children were being put in cages (see the photo here). The Left’s immediate response was to: Blame Donald Trump — This was wrong, since the practices at the border are in response to law, not merely “policy.” The law in question began with the Clinton administration (its history is explained here). Ask how Trump could let something like that which was pictured actually happen — This was wrong, because the photo was from...

    Austria is closing seven mosques and could expel dozens of imams from the country, the government has announced. At a press conference on Friday, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said the government is shutting down a Turkish mosque and dissolving a group called the Arab Religious Community, which runs six mosques. The Austrian government's actions stem from a 2015 law, which bans foreign funding of religious groups and required Muslim societies to have "a positive fundamental view towards [Austria's] state and society". "Parallel societies, political Islam and tendencies toward radicalisation have no place in our country," Kurz said. Austria is home to...

    Three young Guatemalan women went on trial this week at the red-rock federal courthouse in Alpine, Texas. It's about 70 miles from the spot in the border town of Presidio where they waded across the Rio Grande three weeks ago, with their eight- and nine-year-old sons in tow. One of the women, Emilia Figueroa, testified during the trial that she believed if she brought her boy with her, the two of them would be released to live in the United States until their immigration court date. But, to their horror, the opposite occurred. Agents booked the Guatemalan mothers for unlawful...

    The Trump administration has stepped up prosecutions of people who cross the southwestern border illegally, but a judicial reform group said there's no evidence that such prosecutions will deter illegal immigration. The Vera Institute of Justice, in a report issued Wednesday, said its analysis of a previous attempt to use prosecutions to stem immigration - known as Operation Streamline - shows that prosecutions and incarceration do not deter migration. Instead, the prosecutions clogged courts, shifted resources from more serious cases and robbed people of due process. Operation Streamline was implemented in 2005 under the George W. Bush administration and required...

    Because I showcased some of the most ridiculous rhetoric and "outrage" surrounding the immigration issue earlier in the week, I figured I owe it to you to highlight this surprisingly rational and measured take from a fairly unlikely source. First, imagine watching your spouse get detained and deported by ICE agents after he or she had lived and raised a family in America for three decades, having otherwise being a law-abiding and productive member of society. Now imagine being invited to talk about that ordeal on CNN and saying...this (via the Free Beacon): "I am not upset at our government...

    Halfway through the flight, the officers took off Omar Blas Olvera’s handcuffs. He asked why. They had entered Mexican territory, an immigration agent told him. It was July 26, 2017. After they landed in Mexico City, he looked out the window and saw the airport’s signs in Spanish. Just a few months earlier, Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto welcomed 135 deported men and women at Mexico City's airport. He touted Somos Mexicanos (We Are Mexican), a federal program to help repatriated nationals. “You’re not alone. Don’t feel abandoned. The doors to this house will always be open,” Mr. Peña Nieto...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a directive on Thursday that places limits on a tool commonly used by immigration judges and could put hundreds of thousands of deportation cases that are essentially closed back on federal court dockets. The move, issued in an interim decision, is unlikely to reopen all the cases. But Mr. Sessions said that immigration courts could not put such cases on indefinite hold by using a practice known as administrative closure, which temporarily removes a case from a judge’s calendar and delays a proceeding that could remove an immigrant from the country. Immigration judges “do not...

    After a large group of migrants aggressively tried to prevent the deportation of a Togolese man this week, right-wing politicians called for mass deportations. But a senior Christian Democrat (CDU) figure said on Friday that deportations can have a bad impact on families. “Deportations often hit the wrong people — families who have lived in Germany for an eternity and who are well integrated,” Daniel Günther, the Minister-President of Schleswig-Holstein told the Funke Media Group. Günther, who is a key figure in Angela Merkel’s CDU made the comments in reaction to calls for more deportations of migrants after ugly scenes...

    On Thursday afternoon, activist Alejandra Pablos - my friend - will stand up in court and wait for a judge to decide the fate of her freedom. Ale, as her friends call her, was taken into custody by ICE and has been detained for the last 42 days. Ale lost her green card and was put in line for deportation after a 2011 arrest and conviction on several charges including driving under the influence. She spent two years in Eloy Detention Center in Southern Arizona. This January, Ale, a dedicated reproductive justice and immigrant rights organizer, was leading chants at...

    Justice Neil Gorsuch provided the decisive vote Tuesday in a Supreme Court ruling striking down a key provision that made it easier to deport immigrants convicted of violent crimes, in a blow to the Trump administration. President Trump's Supreme Court pick has largely sided with the conservative members of the bench since his appointment, but sided with the liberal wing on Tuesday. The court said the part of the law in question is too vague to be enforced.

    GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga. - A Gwinnett County man released from Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody to help care for his medically-challenged child does not have the OK to stay. He's now being told to leave the country on his own or be picked up again. Channel 2’s Tony Thomas first brought the story to officials in March, which then the 44-year-old father was immediately released from ICE custody. The family thought he'd be able to stay and help care for his daughter, but now the family said they're being told he must leave by June 20. “If I decide I...

    Marcela Rivera told Eyewitness News she lives in constant fear. She's an undocumented mother of five American children whose husband, Carlos Gudiel, was just deported back to Guatemala on Wednesday. Eyewitness News obtained video of him in his home country as he was tearfully reunited with his mother. "My husband is not a criminal," Rivera said, in Spanish. Rivera said her husband did cross the border illegally twice but he doesn't have a criminal background. It may be hard for people to understand her situation, she said, but all they ever wanted was a better life. The Harris County GOP...
