Trump’s Expansion Of Deportation Unconstitutional

In past administrations, before the President issued an executive order
regarding immigration it was vetted, by among others, White House Counsel,
the Justice Department under the attorney General, DHS and other
governmental agencies. Many immigration attorneys and other advocates
believe his executive orders on immigration are unconstitutional.
The new president in order to quickly fulfill his so called campaign
promises to his supporters, bypasses all of these legal safeguards and
instructs his White House Assistants, none of whom have had any
governmental experience, to write up an Executive Order which he signs in
the presence of cameras and issues the orders to DHS and ICE, governmental
agencies charged with deportation instructions.
After his “Muslim Ban” was struck down by the Ninth Circuit Court of
Appeals, Trump vowed loudly and tweets to “meet them in Court”. Later his
staff agreed to not “meet them in Court” and withdrew the Appeal.
He has since issued additional immigration related executive orders
concerning “Expedited Removal”This order will also be subject to judicial
review.
Our immigration lawyers have assisted numerous undocumented immigrants
with 10 years presence in the US or with a spouse, or child over 21, or a
parent who is either a lawful permanent resident or US citizen has the
right to a court hearing to determine whether they are eligible to remain
in the US and apply for permanent resisdence.

Trumps Deportation Plan Becomes Clear

The President’s new executive order, other than excempting DACA recipients from deportation, affects just about every other undocumented immigrant, particularly those who do not have 10 years of presence in the US or American family members: a spouse, children or parents who are residents or citizens. Our immigration lawyers have helped thousands of clients who are placed in immigration court or need waivers or other relief from deportation

And the plan includes current visa holders as in student visa holders or specialty worker visa holders who are arrested or accused of even a minor traffic violation.

The plan seeks to hire an additional 10,000 ICE and border patrol agents to actively seek out undocumented immigrants.

Fortunately, as this article states, anyone living in this country has the right to due process of law. This is particularly crucial to parents of US citizens who have been present for more than10 years. They have a right to a court hearing, as well as representation by an immigration attorney, to weigh the hardship to family members in event of a deportation against the initial violation of law, that is entering the US without benefit of a visa and remaining in the US for one year thereafter.

All Undocumented Immigrants Subject to Deportation

The Department of Homeland Security has released the much anticipated Executive Order prioritizing undocumented immigrants approved and signed by President Trump on 2/21/17.

The president’s campaign promises to prioritize ” violent criminals” has been expanded by this order to include anyone who entered the U.S. without benefit of a visa regardless of the lack of a criminal arrest or conviction.

The only class of aliens not subject to this order are DACA recipients at this time. Our immigration lawyers have reviewed these executive orders and are at least optimistic, at this point, that the millions of children who qualify for DACA as a result of being brought to the US as children are not targeted by ICE at this time.

The order authorizes the arrest of anyone DHS or ICE has probable cause to suspect an immigration law has been violated. That of course could apply even to valid visa holders who have briefly overstayed their visa and remained in the U.S. regardless of a criminal conviction.

Fortunately, many undocumented immigrants who have been continuously present for more than 10 years in the US, are the parents, spouses or minor children of lawful permanent residents or US citizens, without a serious criminal conviction, are entitled to an immigration court hearing. If that is the case and one is detained they should contact family immediately to discuss the matter with an immigration attorney.

However, ICE and DHS agents are routinely arresting undocumented and pressing them to give up the right to a court hearing and accept voluntary departure or expedited removal. In the event the detainee accepts this grant of voluntary departure, often to be taken out of custody and returned to their home country, they face a 10 year ban from returning to the US even if they have a family petition pending before the USCIS. The same goes with expedited removal. Below is a link to an article in the Reno-Gazette Journal on this breaking story.

CE Detains Victim of Domestic Battery

A victim of domestic violence was recently detained for deportation proceedings by ICE when she appeared in court to testify at her abuser’s court hearing. ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) under President Obama cooperated with local law enforcement in protecting victims and witnesses of violent crimes with a U Visa to allow them to remain in the US long enough to obtain justice against their abuser and in some cases remain here with a work permit and protection from deportation, is now seeking to deport these victims and allow the abuser, often a US citizen or lawful permanent resident, to avoid criminal liability.

In other words the Trump administration,under the pretext of protecting Americans from violent crimes Is currently, in cases such as this, punishing the victim with deportation for 10 years and allowing the criminal to go free.
