    Federal Court Reinstates Full Block on Trump Asylum Ban

    A federal court has reinstated a nationwide injunction blocking a Trump administration asylum ban

    that denied asylum to anyone at the southern border who had transited through a third country en route to the United States.


    It follows a Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling last month that narrowed the scope of the injunction to that circuit.

    The American Civil Liberties Union, Center for Constitutional Rights, and Southern Poverty Law Center, were in court on September 5 seeking reinstatement of the nationwide injunction. U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar issued the ruling today.


    The following reaction is from:

    ACLU attorney Lee Gelernt:

    “The court recognized there is grave danger facing asylum-seekers along the entire stretch of the southern border.”

    Trump says US must be 'careful' about admitting people from Bahamas

    “We have to be very careful. Everybody needs totally proper documentation.

    Because look, the Bahamas has some tremendous problems with people going to the Bahamas who weren’t supposed to be there,”

    “I don’t want to allow people that weren’t supposed to be in the Bahamas to come into the United States, including some very bad people and some very bad gang members, and some very, very bad drug dealers,” Baby words from the infantile, regressed Trash

    Trump’s remarks came after dozens of people evacuating the Bahamas were kicked off of a ferry headed for Florida over confusion regarding their visas.

    The individuals were told to disembark the boat because they weren’t traveling with U.S. visas,

    Morgan told reporters Monday that the developments were the result of “confusion,” and said the Trump administration would look to process anyone seeking entry into the U.S. from the Bahamas for humanitarian reasons on an expedited basis.

    “You can imagine any type of natural disaster like this where you have this huge disaster, a lot of resources going on and responding, there’s going to be some confusion,”

    “We are not working and telling a cruise line that you cannot allow anyone without documents.

    That’s just not being done.”

    U.S. officials ripped a Bahamian girl from her family and sent her to a migrant kids' facility

    the United States instead ripped the family apart when U.S. officials separated a 12-year-old girl from her godmother and threw her into a facility that also detains migrant children,

    Kaytora Paul had flown from Nassau to Florida on Sunday with her godmother when

    Customs and Border Protection took her because she wasn’t traveling with a biological parent, her mom Katty said.

    “Trump's cruelty against black and brown people knows no end,” said Families Belong Together chair Jess Morales Rocketto.

    “This little girl came to the US fleeing Hurricane Dorian with her godmother at her parents' direction only to be classified as an 'unaccompanied minor' and ripped away from her loved ones.

    Now, her family has to start the long process of becoming the child's sponsor

    while they face deportation at the end of the month. We demand her immediate release."

    Trump is trying to drastically raise appeal fees in immigration courts to deter asylum seekers

    Trump administration is now trying to claw back funds to the Treasury, attempting to profit off the backs of asylum seekers and immigrants.

    As reported by BuzzFeed News, the administration is proposing to dramatically increase the cost for filing appeals in deportation cases in a new draft regulation that the publication obtained.

    The new proposal would raise the current fee of $110 to $975 for any request for an appeal of an immigration judge’s ruling and to $895 for the reopening or reconsideration of a case in front of the Board of Immigration Appeals.

    Texas teacher who tried to contact Trump to have her students deported is officially fired

    A Texas school board voted unanimously to fire a teacher whose xenophobia was exposed by her own inability to properly use social media.

    asked Trump to “clean up” Fort Worth, and

    get rid of the undocumented students from her district. She also had other racist things to say, such as

    “Texas will not protect whistle blowers.

    The Mexicans refuse to honor our flag.”
    the eternal USA flag fetish

    U.S. immigration officials are manipulating illiterate migrants.

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection often conveniently exploits asylum seekers who cannot read.

    Along with an unfamiliarity with our deliberately complex immigration system,

    the illiteracy of Central American migrants, especially women,

    facilitates the deportation of parents and separation of families.

    By manipulating illiterate refugees who often unwittingly sign away their rights,

    the U.S. government is violating the basic tenets of the
    internationally recognized and protected right to seek asylum.

    Trump admin ignored its own evidence of climate change's impact on migration from Central America

    EXCLUSIVE: An internal report obtained by NBC News showed migration surged from those areas where climate change is hurting crops and farmers.

    Research compiled one year ago by Customs and Border Protection pointed to an overwhelming factor driving record-setting migration to the U.S. from Guatemala:

    Crop shortages were leaving rural Guatemalans, especially in the country's western highlands, in extreme poverty and starving.

    migration surged from those areas of Guatemala without reliable subsistence farming or wages from commercial farming jobs.

    More than 100,000 Guatemalans headed north last year, and many more followed in fiscal year 2019,

    making Guatemala the single largest country
    contributing to undocumented immigration across the U.S. southwest border this year.

    Scientists have said the increase in poverty and
    food insecurity driving migration are due to multiple factors, one of which is climate change.

    inside the Trump White House, that

    message was largely ignored in both policy decisions and messaging around what should be done to
    stem the flow of migrants.

    freezing $170 million in foreign aid slated for Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.

    Over $400 million in fiscal year 2018 foreign aid will also be reprogrammed elsewhere,

    including outside the Western Hemisphere.

    Judge blocks Trump administration from indefinitely detaining migrant children

    The judge found the regulations violated the terms of a 1997 settlement

    that set standards for the treatment of migrant children, including

    that they must be released from non-licensed facilities within 20 days.

    https://www.nbcnews.com/news/latino/...n=PDB_09282019

    Of course, Trash/Miller/Barr/ICE/CBP will give the judge a great big you

    Shoot Them in the Legs, Trump Suggested: Inside His Border War

    As White House advisers listened astonished,

    he ordered them to shut down the entire 2,000-mile border with Mexico — by noon the next day.

    Privately, the president had often talked about fortifying a border wall with

    a water-filled trench,

    stocked with snakes or alligators,

    prompting aides to seek a cost estimate.

    He wanted the wall electrified,

    with es on top that could pierce human flesh.

    After publicly suggesting that soldiers shoot migrants if they threw rocks, the president backed off when his staff told him that was illegal.

    But later in a meeting, aides recalled,

    he suggested that they shoot migrants in the legs to slow them down.

    That’s not allowed either, they told him.

    “You are making me look like an idiot!”

    Mr. Trump shouted, adding in a profanity, as multiple officials in the room described it.
    “I ran on this. It’s my issue.”

    Mr. Trump had routinely berated Ms.

    Nielsen as ineffective and, worse — at least in his mind —
    not tough-looking enough.

    “Lou Dobbs hates you, Ann Coulter hates you, you’re making me look bad,”


    “All you care about is your friends in Mexico,” the president snapped, according to people in the room. “I’ve had it. I want it done at noon tomorrow.”

    The president’s advisers left the meeting in a near panic.

    Every year more than $200 billion worth of American exports flow across the Mexican border.

    Closing it would wreck havoc on American farmers and automakers, among many others.

    Courts Are Fighting Back Against Trump’s Brutal Immigration Policies

    Federal judges just issued rulings protecting immigrant children, slowing fast-track deportations, and restricting ICE detention orders.


    lost amid the other headlines this week were three extraordinarily positive judicial rulings.

    First, in California,
    Federal Judge Dolly Gee ruled that the terms ofthe Flores agreement, which have the effect of limiting how long immigrant children can be kept in detention, could not be superseded by new Trump administration regulations allowing for indefinite detention.

    Then, in quick succession, a Washington, DC, court declared illegal the administration’s plans for
    fast-track deportation of undocumented immigrants arrested anywhere in the United States who can’t prove they have been here continuously for two years.

    Finally, in
    Gonzalez v. ICE, a federal district court restricted when and how ICE could request that local police detain immigrants;

    the judge ruled that ICE was violating the Fourth Amendment in its catch-all missions against immigrants by mining federal databases that contain inaccurate or incomplete information.

    Trump administration plans on collecting DNA from detained migrants

    The U.S. government wants to start collecting DNA from detained immigrants to include in a national criminal database,

    The database is maintained by the FBI, and used by law enforcement authorities as they attempt to identify suspects.

    DNA is collected from people who have been arrested, charged, or convicted of major crimes.

    The Department of Justice is working on a federal regulation that gives immigration officers authorization to collect DNA from migrants at detention facilities containing more than 40,000 people

    the government would also be able to collect DNA from kids and asylum seekers who enter at legal ports of entry.

    "That kind of mass collection alters the purpose of DNA collection from one of criminal investigation

    basically to population surveillance,

    which is basically contrary to our basic notions of a free, trusting, autonomous society,"
