Immigration Ban


Recommended Posts

 

And then there's this ...

 

The Associated Press is reporting:

President Donald Trump says that he's considering signing a new executive order on immigration as the one he signed suspending the nation's refugee program and barring citizens from seven Muslim-majority countries is held up in court.

Trump tells reporters aboard Air Force One on his way to Florida that he's confident he'll win his court battle.

But he says, "we also have a lot of other options, including just filing a brand new order."

He adds: "We need speed for reasons of security. So it could very well be that we do that."

Trump says a new order would likely change "very little" from the first and says he'll likely act next Monday or Tuesday.

He adds of his decision: "I'd like to surprise you."

 

 

We don't need speed for reasons of security.

 

YOU need speed to appeal to your racist, Islamophobic and/or horribly misled Fox News watching constituents who've been snowballed into living in perpetual fear.

I'm so sorry Colo - part of me really wonders if he has a stockpile of these moves set aside to launch when negative newsworthy items (i.e. Russia dossier) hit the streets about him.

 

He is officially starting to weed out by race. I'm just sick.

 

I spoke to my Aunt, finally. He applied for citizenship in November but while that is going through, he had to do his annual LPR registraton. Immigration confiscated his Green Card and told him he will get it back in 6 mos while they research his renewal. He's never had to surrender his card prior and it's required to carry that all times. When he asked about that, the Immigration Officer said if he isn't causing trouble, it won't be an issue, like every Brown skin is here to cause trouble...

 

His business dealings have required his LPR registration to be notarized/documented as part of numerous Government filings. His attorneys are pulling that together to get a court order allowing him to stay while he is without his Green Card. If he were picked up right now, he would be deported. His immigration attorney in LA states this is a calculated policy move to make Mexican LPRs illegal. It's selective right now and fortunately my uncle has the finances to fight this. I don't know whether to cry, vomit, or both.

 

What blows me away is my uncle is easily in the top 10% of this country by both wealth & income. We don't want the worst from Mexico but we don't want the best either?? Wtf, makes no sense.

 

I agree, he's starting by religion, now by race. This is going to get very, very bad for many good people.

 

 

I'll say a prayer for your uncle man.

 

This is one of policies he's implementing that is closest to my heart. I'm about as fiercely pro-immigration, anti-deportation as a person can be. It seems morally disgusting to me that your someone as innocent as your uncle got scooped up into this nonsense.

 

FWIW, I'm of the opinion that this is beginning now because they just got Sessions confirmed as the AG, and that asshat is just super anti-immigration. They know the cards they're playing with, and Sessions isn't going to do a damn thing to stop this.

I appreciate it dudeguyy.

 

I think there's a conscious effort by Trump's administration to desensitize the nation to this discrimination. It hasn't even been a month and a lot of folks are completely fed up with the feminism/religion/racial discrimination talk. Most people have their own issues and it's easier for many to think it will never happen or at least to them. I just hope those of us that have been alert can continue to keep this up. I really don't see this getting checked unless the Repub's lose majority in the next Congressional elections.

 

A number of larger employers out here that rely on work visa/green card staff are putting formal contingency plans together for unexpectedly losing these staff. We have a couple very large healthcare clients putting together training for their non-citizen staff on what to do if they get detained. I never thought any of this would be a consideration for US companies let alone in Colorado. I find it hard to believe these companies would be taking these steps if the risk wasn't rooted strongly in reality...

And so it begins ... Friday nights seem to be when triggers' get pulled (some speculate it's because Jared is logged out for Shabbat).

 

I think the timing of this is more tied to the distraction of the court case and ban then anything else.

and the kkk celebrates their great victory

David Marin, the director of Enforcement and Removal Operations for Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Los Angeles, said the actions taken this week were planned before Trump took office and were comparable to a similar weeklong operation taken last summer that resulted in 200 arrests.

 

Marin said roughly 75 percent of the people arrested this week had prior felony convictions for crimes that included sex offenses, assault, robbery and weapons violations. Most of the 161 people arrested this week had been targeted for removal based on past criminal convictions, but Marin admitted a few people were swept up because they were found to be undocumented while other arrests were being carried out.

Bikkannavar says he was detained by US Customs and Border Patrol and pressured to give the CBP agents his phone and access PIN. Since the phone was issued by NASA, it may have contained sensitive material that wasn’t supposed to be shared. Bikkannavar’s phone was returned to him after it was searched by CBP, but he doesn’t know exactly what information officials might have taken from the device.
