That way Canadians can add to their sparse population and allow over burdened US immigration courts opportunity to reduce their back logs.

Comment on Long-Residing Liberians Are at Risk of Losing Protection from Deportation by the End of March by A Maryland Farmer http://immigrationimpact.com/2018/03/15/liberians-deportation-march/#comment-125095 Mon, 09 Apr 2018 19:48:00 +0000 http://immigrationimpact.com/?p=22148#comment-125095 Unfortunately, the law doesn’t carve out exceptions for close relationships and unique histories. I guess immigration advocates shouldn’t have been so flippant with executive authority in these matters – what can be given on a whim can often be taken away just as easily. And, if DED functions similarly to TPS, what do you consider a “temporary” measure of time? Because you didn’t mention anything specifically wrong with Liberia, or why Liberians should merit DED based on the country conditions in Liberia. (The law also doesn’t carve out exceptions for those who have an EAD – I’m not sure how that is relevant unless you’re trying to mislead people about the eligibility for DED.) Because you haven’t provided any justification for the extension, should we assume that you just want DED to become permanent for these Liberians, even though it was intended as a temporary measure of relief?

Comment on Supreme Court Finds No Right to a Bond Hearing Under Immigration Law by fitnesspro22 http://immigrationimpact.com/2018/02/28/supreme-court-bond-hearing-immigration-law/#comment-125012 Sun, 04 Mar 2018 16:12:00 +0000 http://immigrationimpact.com/?p=22043#comment-125012 The latest S Ct decision is not about jurisprudence but about politically inspired discrimination.

Instead of “reading into the statute”, challenge it on Constitutional grounds in an all out attempt to show that Congress acted beyond the Constitution. There is no way that the Constitution would mandate indefinite detention for a misdemeanor or Asylum request at the Border, which amounts to serving time like those convicted of serious crimes. It amounts to criminalising the US Immigration laws.

I came here in a High skilled immigration visa program so called H1b. Got Married and have daughter 11 years old .She is a citizen and i am going take her with me to India if my extension is denied.I am really scared to take her with me.

Comment on Trump’s Derogatory Comments Revive Racist Legacy in Immigration Policy by Victoria Sethunya http://immigrationimpact.com/2018/01/12/trump-derogatory-comments-racist-immigration/#comment-124973 Sun, 04 Feb 2018 23:15:00 +0000 http://immigrationimpact.com/?p=21800#comment-124973 As immigrants in Utah, we gathered at the capitol on Martin Luther King Day on Monday 15th, 2018 where I was one of the speakers. I would like to share my speech and letter to my fellow Africans:

Comrades, Scholars, Leaders, Friends, Fellow Africans and All Allies,

The state of Utah has been fumbling with immigrant rights for far too long!
Meanwhile, Trump continues to threaten global peace and justice. Let’s therefore unite to foster integrity and stability for all families.

Because Utah covertly embraces Trump’s “shithole” stance, Utah ICE continue to damage immigrant families. They deport American children, but not before they subject them to the trauma of the immigration deportation proceedings. They deport immigrants after subjecting them to communicable diseases specifically Hepatitis A/C. They ignore court orders for treatment recommended fo migrants exposed to nosocomial conditions such as opioid dependency which they call a ” crisis” when it affects Americans and “criminal activity” when it affects the “shithole” nations. They threaten to deport refugees injured in the hands of the law.

Consequently, I encourage that we demand that America restore all the “shithole” bodies damaged in America – that is America’s burden. You have witnessed Trump’s recent remarks. He is a monstrous physiognomy of an American experiment putting Africa’s existence in peril.

Let’s act!

This decision shows that there is no blanket policy for all TPS countries.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security
can tell the difference between refugees
who might DIE if returned to their homelands
and refugees who would probably NOT DIE.

Danger-of-death might become the new standard for asylum.
Hurricanes and earthquakes are safely in the past.
But on-going armed conflict is killing people this week.

Read more about the DANGER OF DEATH
becoming the ONLY criterion for asylum:

Comment on Decoding the White House Immigration Framework by Claude Fortin http://immigrationimpact.com/2018/01/26/decoding-white-house-immigration-framework/#comment-124964 Sun, 28 Jan 2018 13:46:00 +0000 http://immigrationimpact.com/?p=21879#comment-124964 I do appreciate that this article was written without the usual loaded words and rhetoric.

I happen to like the framework presented by the White House.

For the record, I’m an immigrant myself and a naturalized citizen who did it all legally.

Once we have given almost two million people who came to the U.S illegally a path to citizenship, we should ensure that future immigrants do it legally, and that means doing everything we can – including improvements to walls – to stop people from coming across the border illegally. After all, we are supposedly a country of laws.

I understand why people want to come to this country and I don’t blame them for doing whatever they can to do so, but at the same time, we cannot have open borders where everyone who wanted to come could come.

Furthermore, I think that Amendment 14 should be revised to be more like like the majority of the other countries of the world, where citizenship is based on blood (parent is a citizen) and not by location of birth. This would stop the practice of anchor babies.

Comment on Homeland Security Secretary Nielsen Struggles With the Facts at Senate Oversight Hearing by A Maryland Farmer http://immigrationimpact.com/2018/01/19/homeland-security-nielsen-facts-senate-hearing/#comment-124958 Wed, 24 Jan 2018 16:45:00 +0000 http://immigrationimpact.com/?p=21836#comment-124958 That’s a very interesting take away. I watched all 4 hours and 17 minutes of this hearing and reached a totally different conclusion. The Senators on the Judiciary Committee either don’t understand or don’t care about the real problems facing our immigration system, don’t appreciate what immigration enforcement actually looks like, don’t understand DHS’ place with respect to election security and disaster relief, and have confused the role of the DOJ with DHS. Some Senators showed greater concern for cuss words than legislating or providing oversight. The whole hearing was a soapbox for Booker and Harris to celebrate Durbin for being a tattletale, and for irrelevant anecdotes. Many Senators didn’t even show up. Nothing was accomplished and the hearing was a sham – if it wasn’t perhaps AIC would have posted an article about the substance of the hearing instead of an opinion piece about Sec. Nielson.

Comment on Where Doug Jones Stands on Immigration Policy by nonnarose http://immigrationimpact.com/2017/12/13/doug-jones-immigration-policy/#comment-124956 Tue, 23 Jan 2018 07:40:00 +0000 http://immigrationimpact.com/?p=21654#comment-124956 109,000 have enlisted under daca, showing good faith as Americans who want to serve their country. Please research how difficult it is to even qualify for DACA, which is why it is a program we should keep. Surely you don’t think children brought here very young should be sent back to a country they don’t even know when they will be good citizens here.

Comment on 3 Things You Need to Know About DACA Developments This Week by Capitan Frith II http://immigrationimpact.com/2018/01/10/need-to-know-daca-developments-week/#comment-124954 Mon, 22 Jan 2018 16:28:00 +0000 http://immigrationimpact.com/?p=21783#comment-124954 Dreamers are a very special category of immigrants because their roots (especially very young arrivals) are here and not foreign. To repatriate them is quite illogical. Secondly, those who are continuing their education or who have joined the military are building a better tomorrow for themselves here. As such, Congress should proceed forward treating Dreamers under the Humanitarian banner and not a part of Comprehensive Immigration Reform. CIR should fully handle eVerify and all W-2 Social Security payments made by employers and employees held in trust by the SSA. If the Republicans wish to maintain the idea of not-rewarding illegal employment then DHS could use those funds for border security. Since those contributions go back ten or fifteen years there must be enough there for Mr Trump to build his wall without burdening the rest of us with a new appropriation of borrowed funds to do so. I’m estimating that aliens and their employers have paid $15 B into the Trust Fund.
