Re: Immigration and Asylum (other than DACA)


No, Robbie. There appear to have been no plans in place whatsoever. From the IG's report, apparently the Trump Administration figured that families would immediately be deterred from coming, so it would just trickle to a stop. Not a clue where they thought these children would go....

Yeah.... And it's immigrant children and families caught in the mix. My brain just cannot function this way -- and I hope it never does.

Re: Immigration and Asylum (other than DACA)


You’ll put down strangers,
Kill them, cut their throats, possess their houses,
And lead the majesty of law in lyam
To slip him like a hound; alas, alas, say now the King,
As he is clement if th’offender mourn,
Should so much come too short of your great trespass
As but to banish you: whither would you go?
What country, by the nature of your error,
Should give you harbour? Go you to France or Flanders,
To any German province, Spain or Portugal,
Nay, anywhere that not adheres to England,
Why, you must needs be strangers, would you be pleas’d
To find a nation of such barbarous temper
That breaking out in hideous violence
Would not afford you an abode on earth.
Whet their detested knives against your throats,
Spurn you like dogs, and like as if that God
Owed not nor made not you, not that the elements
Were not all appropriate to your comforts,
But charter’d unto them? What would you think
To be us’d thus? This is the strangers’ case
And this your mountainish inhumanity.


William Shakespeare

"Mountainish" is the right adjective.

Re: Immigration and Asylum (other than DACA)


(NBC News) - Customs and Border Protection used emergency funds meant for asylum-seekers' food, medicine on dirt bikes and boats, report says

Customs and Border Protection spent portions of a $112 million emergency fund meant to buy food, medicine and other items for asylum-seekers on ATVs, dirt bikes and boats, according to a Government Accountability Office report published Thursday. "Instead of helping migrants," said a top House Democrat, CBP "broke the law by spending this taxpayer money on things that were not authorized."

Once Trump is out of there and reasonable people can look at what he and his minions have done, we're going to be shocked.

(NBC News) - Trump to sign order freezing visas for foreign workers through the end of the year

The White House announced on Monday that President Donald Trump plans to sign an executive order that will freeze new visas for foreign workers through the end of the year, citing the need to preserve jobs amid the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. H1B visas for tech workers, H2B visas for low-skill jobs, H4 visas for spouses of certain visa holders, J visas for work and student exchanges and L visas for intracompany transfers will all be suspended through Dec. 31, senior administration officials told reporters.


There goes our school district's student exchange program.... And what does that mean for foreign students who attend US universities?

(NBC News) - Court rules Trump can't use military money for border wall

A federal appeals court panel ruled Friday that President Donald Trump cannot use defense money appropriated by Congress to build his wall on the southern border. The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel ruled 2-1 that the executive branch doesn’t have the authority to transfer military funds for the construction of the wall, saying that power belongs exclusively to Congress under the Constitution.


The one branch of government where justice still can (sometimes) be found.

(NBC News) - Federal judge rules government must release migrant children in detention centers that are 'on fire' due to the coronavirus

A federal judge in California ruled that the government must release migrant children held in three family detention centers by July 17 because of the risks posed by the coronavirus. “There is no more time for half measures,” U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee said on Friday.The order applies to children who have been in a family detention center for more than 20 days. The children must be released with their parents or to a sponsor.

Re: Immigration and Asylum (other than DACA)


(NBC News) - Judge overturns Trump border rule requiring immigrants to first claim asylum in another country

A federal judge knocked down the Trump administration's rule Tuesday night that prohibits immigrants from claiming asylum in the United States if they did not first seek to claim it in a third country they passed through on their way to the southern U.S. border.

The ruling, a major blow to the administration's toughest asylum policy, comes on the heels of the Supreme Court's decision to uphold DACA and another federal judge's ruling that children must be released from family immigration detention centers.



I sure wish it were possible to get the courts to act more quickly....

(NBC News) - Trump administration proposes blocking asylum-seekers, claiming they pose a public health risk of spreading COVID-19

The Trump administration has proposed a new rule that would allow it to deny asylum to immigrants who are deemed a public health risk. The soon-to-be published rule would allow the Department of Homeland Security and Justice Department to remove immigrants based on "potential international threats from the spread of pandemics." An immigrant rights attorney criticized the rule as "an unconscionable attempt to scapegoat vulnerable people who are seeking humanitarian protection."

A greater risk than Trump’s base poses by refusing to wear masks? Ridiculous!

Exactly. Trump's attempt to "glom on" to the pandemic is pathetic.

Re: Immigration and Asylum (other than DACA)


(CNN) - Parents of 545 children separated at US border still can't be found

Lawyers have not been able to reach the parents of 545 children who had been separated from their families by US border officials between 2017 and 2018, according to a Tuesday court filing.

Hundreds of parents may also have been deported without their children.

The filing from the Justice Department and the American Civil Liberties Union is part of an ongoing effort to identify and reunite families separated by the Trump administration, more than two years after the "zero tolerance" policy was created.

While a federal court order forced the reunification of many of those families, an explosive government watchdog report released last year revealed there could be thousands more who hadn't previously been acknowledged by officials.

A court-appointed "steering committee" has tried to locate those families. As of October 20, the committee has attempted to reach the families of 1,030 children. Of those, the committee has not been able to reach the separated parents of 545 children, according to the court filing.

"Approximately two-thirds" of parents are believed to have been deported without their children, the filing adds.



I hope this puts a stain on the soul of every Administration official who conducted this policy or just stood by as it was carried out. These poor children.... And their poor parents....

Re: Immigration and Asylum (other than DACA)


I just saw an interview with an MSNBC reporter (maybe Jacob Sokoloff?) who is covering this story. He talked with a nine-year-old who is here and his father who was deported back to Central America.

The boy spoke good English. The reporter asked the boy what he wanted for his 9th birthday. The boy said, "My dad." Heartbreaking....

The father was speaking Spanish. The interpreter said that they were in a very difficult situation, because the boy's older brother is also being held in a US detention center. The father said that the US offered to send both boys back to him -- but the father said he couldn't do that. The father took his sons to the US in the first place because of violence against young men who won't join the gangs in their home country. He doesn't want the boys to come back, for their own protection. And the US won't allow the father in legally. And so they're trapped in this situation.

I can't IMAGINE what they're doing to help the infants and toddlers who haven't been reconnected. They have no idea of their own names or their parents' names. The parents would have to come forward to claim them. But if they're still hidden and undocumented in the US, or if the children would be in danger with the deported parents, how could they subject their children to those threats?

It's now more obvious than ever that the Trump Administration made NO plans to EVER reunite these families.
