    The United States on Thursday warned its citizens against travelling to Turkey, citing a nationwide crackdown that has led to the arrest of thousands of people, including US passport holders.“Reconsider travel to Turkey due to terrorism and arbitrary detentions,” the State Department said, retaining a travel warning already in place.US citizens had also been subject to travel bans that prevented them from leaving the country, the State Department said on its website. “Under the State of Emergency, security forces have detained tens of thousands of individuals, including US citizens, suspected of affiliation with alleged terrorist organizations based on scant or secret...

    Back in 2014, there was a surge of unaccompanied minors along the Texas border. The crisis stemmed in part from smugglers who convinced thousands of Central Americans that the Obama administrations new deferred action policy was a free pass for children entering the country. As Jeryl Bier pointed out today on Twitter, at the height of the crisis, Rep. Nancy Pelosi traveled to a detention facility in Brownsville, Texas which was overwhelmed with child migrants. After visiting the center, Pelosi gave a press conference in which she described what shed just seen as dazzling a sparkling array of Gods...
  • Here Are The Photos Of Obamas Illegal Immigrant Detention Facilities The Media Wont Show You

    The Daily Caller ^ | 06/19/2018 | Benny Johnson
    The media and political class become more and more outraged over the Trump administrations decision to detain and prosecute immigrants illegally crossing the border. Lost in the debate is any acknowledgment that President Obamas administration also used detention facilities. Current U.S. immigration laws, when enforced, have the consequence of temporarily separating adults who arrive with children into separate detention facilities in order to prosecute the adults. The policy of prosecuting immigrants for crossing the border illegally has been in place for multiple administrations. The Obama administration prosecuted half a million illegal immigrants and similarly separated families in the process. So...

    WASHINGTON -- Lawmakers who had been trying to gain access to a holding center for undocumented immigrant children were given a tour Sunday starting with a Customs and Border Protection processing center in McAllen, Texas, as DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen declared in a rare tweetstorm that the kids aren't being separated from parents. Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), calling the McAllen facility "the dog kennel," said he "witnessed loads of kids massed together in large pens of chain-linked fence separated from their moms and dads." He and Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) then went to the McAllenHidalgoReynosa International Bridge, where agents...

    MOST administrations have to face this public relations problem at one point or another: They make a decision for reasons they think are good ones, then are surprised to receive a wave of negative press coverage and public revulsion, so they have to scramble to come up with a palatable justification that makes them look like they arent foolish, insensitive, or in some cases, morally monstrous. Thats whats happening to the Trump administration right now as outrage grows over its policy of separating children from their parents when they arrive at the southern border not just people crossing illegally,...

    In early May, I traveled to McAllen, Texas, to speak with U.S. Border Patrol about the current immigration crisis. It was a humid, overcast morning and Chris Cabrera, the agencys spokesperson, stood on the banks of the Rio Grande as he explained the challenges posed by the current wave of migrants entering the country illegally, most of whom are refugees fleeing deadly violence and institutional failure in Central America. You have a lot of women and children that are coming here. Ive seen groups of 20, 25 people that are all women, or all girls, age 15 and below. Cabrera...

    The Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that immigration officials can continue to indefinitely detain immigrants during proceedings to determine the legality of their status in the U.S. In the 5-3 decision, which Justice Elena Kagan took no part in, the Supreme Court reversed the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision that ruled detained immigrants must receive bond hearings every six months to determine if their continued detainment was necessary. The decision of Jennings v. Rodriguez affects illegal and legal immigrants. Legal permanent residents facing deportation as a result of committing crimes and asylum seekers who have turned themselves in at the...

    Immigrants can be held by U.S. immigration officials indefinitely without receiving bond hearings, even if they have permanent legal status or are seeking asylum, the Supreme Court ruled Tuesday. In a 5-3 ruling Tuesday, with Justice Elena Kagan recusing, the court ruled that immigrants do not have the right to periodic bond hearings. The ruling is a defeat for immigration advocates, who argued that immigrants should not be held for more than six months at a time without such a hearing. The Supreme Court ruling follows a Trump administration appeal of a ruling by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals...

    The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that immigrants, even those with permanent legal status and asylum seekers, do not have the right to periodic bond hearings. It's a profound loss for those immigrants appealing what are sometimes indefinite detentions by the government. Many are held for long periods of time on average, 13 months after being picked up for things as minor as joyriding. Some are held even longer.

    Full title: Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens asks Trump administration to help her hold undocumented immigrants With most California governments and police agencies resisting President Donald Trumps push to increase immigration enforcement and deportations, Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens is bucking the trend, telling the Trump administration she wants her department to cooperate more closely with federal immigration agents.Last month, Hutchens met with several high ranking members of Trumps administration in Washington D.C., in part to communicate how her department, and possibly law enforcement in other large American counties, would be willing to impose federal immigration laws.Her message: Neighborhood enforcement...

    Fearing a loss of millions of dollars for defying immigration authorities, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez on Thursday ordered county jails to comply with federal immigration detention requests effectively gutting the countys position as a sanctuary for immigrants in the country illegally. Gimenez cited an executive order signed Wednesday by President Donald Trump that threatened to cut federal grants for any counties or cities that dont cooperate fully with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Since 2013, Miami-Dade has refused to indefinitely detain inmates who are in the country illegally and wanted by ICE not based on principle, but because the...

    Hey everyone, sorry if people think this is a vanity but I think people need to watch this because like as not this will be happening in schools all over the nation. There is no doubt in my mind that your kid could face 2 weeks detention even expulsion for saying something like, "Caitlyn Jenner is not a Hero." When I went to school, people also got in trouble for less. You were more likely to get detention or suspension for praying over your meal than giving the Hitler salute. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jtxym6orSNc SEASON 19 EPISODE 1 STUNNING AND BRAVE

    (CNSNews.com) - The director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Thursday defended her agencys decision to return $113 million in funds allocated for the detention and removal of illegal immigrants in FY 2015. Your organization operates with limited resources, and yet, in fiscal year 2015, you gave back to the Department of Homeland Security $113 million in funds that were specifically appropriated for detention and removal. Why did you give this money back given the problems that were decided by Mr. Smith and the fact as Mr. Conyers noted you have limited resources to begin with? House Judiciary Chairman...

    Five illegal immigrants from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador have filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against the federal government. As their lawyer Andrew Free explained, they came to this country to exercise their Constitutional right to share in its abundance. Yet, unlike the Mexicans who got here before them theyve been denied free food, free housing, free education, and free health care. Instead, they been detained in squalid conditions as if they were common criminals. Free called this lawsuit merely the opening salvo in a protracted struggle for social justice. There are thousands, maybe millions, of future plaintiffs. We will...

    Illegal immigrants are suing the U.S. government for what they say was psychological and physical harm due to their detention, according to an Associated Press report. The five illegal immigrants, all hailing from Guatemala, Honduras, or El Salvador, are seeking millions of dollars in damages and claim they received poor medical care and suffered psychologically from being detained. Andrew Free, the immigration lawyer representing the plaintiffs, told the AP that the governments use of family detention violates their rights and that the government fails to provide the standard of care that they owe to these detainees. We expect this will...

    Tens of thousands of illegal immigrant women and children streamed across the U.S. border last year seeking asylum and protected status, claiming a "credible fear" of going home to the violence in Central America. President Obama addressed the crisis through increased border enforcement, more detention beds, more immigration judges and pressure on political leaders in their home countries. But a year later, new data obtained exclusively by Fox News shows the policy isn't stopping the influx. Not only are illegal immigrant women and children continuing to cross the border in large numbers, but the majority charged with crimes aren't even...

    In the wake of the damning American Senate report on the CIAs torture practices French far-right leader Marine Le Pen risked a backlash when in an interview she claimed there are times when torture can "be useful to make someone talk". The report uncovered the brutal CIA interrogations of al-Qaeda suspects in the years after 9/11 and sent shockwaves around Washington and the rest of the world. The UN and human rights groups are now even calling for the prosecution of the US officials involved but Marine Le Pen, leader of the right-wing Front National party, seems to have a...

The only person allowed to be quoted during the media tour was Lucero. Once they enter under the welcome sign in English and Spanish immigrants will be processed through showers and health screenings and allowed to select clothes for themselves and their children. Mothers also can request diapers, baby bottles, pacifiers and blankets. Further inside they will have access to a...
