    U.S. immigration authorities are planning to issue photo ID cards to immigrants in deportation proceedings in a bid to slash paper use and help people stay up-to-date on required meetings and court hearings, officials said. The proposal from Immigration and Customs Enforcement is still being developed as a pilot program, and it was not immediately clear how many the agency would issue. The cards would not be an official form of federal identification, and would state they are to be used by the Department of Homeland Security. The idea is for immigrants to be able to access information about their cases online by using a card rather than paper documents that are cumbersome and can fade over time, officials said. They said ICE officers could also run checks on the cards in the field. “Moving to a secure card will save the agency millions, free up resources, and ensure information is quickly accessible to DHS officials while reducing the agency’s FOIA backlog,” an ICE spokesperson said in a statement, referring to unfulfilled public requests for agency documents. Homeland Security gets...
    The Department of Homeland Security is reportedly planning to send migrants awaiting deportation proceedings deeper into the U.S, and to cities including Los Angeles. It is one of a number of measures under consideration as U.S. authorities prepare for the end of Title 42 and an expected surge in arrivals. It comes amid overcrowding at the border, where Customs and Border Protection are already being forced to release migrants in ease conditions at some shelters.  And a thousands-strong caravan is making its way through Mexico. The new model would transport migrants to cities including Albuquerque, Houston and Dallas, where DHS is already preparing shelters. Its Southwest Border Coordination Center, which brings together officials from FEMA, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and CBP and others, is coordinating the effort, according to NBC News, which obtained internal documents setting out the plans.

              by Bethany Blankley   More than 50,000 illegal immigrants released into the U.S. by Immigration and Customs Enforcement failed to report to their deportation proceedings during a five-month period analyzed last year, according to a report provided by the Department of Homeland Security to U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin. The report also states that ICE doesn’t have court information on more than 40,000 individuals it’s supposed to prosecute. “Between March and August 2021, as a result of the Biden Administration’s failed border policies, over 270,000 illegal aliens have been dispersed into the United States with little chance for removal,” Johnson said in an announcement accompanying the report, which didn’t include data from the other seven months of the year. Over the same time period, “over 50,000 illegal aliens – more than half of the aliens released into the interior of the United States under a Notice to Report (NTR) – failed to appear to begin deportation proceedings,” the DHS report states. The data was provided to Johnson, who sits on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, in response to a letter he...

    Migrants who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally wait to be loaded on a bus to be processed by U.S. Border Patrol, Rio Grande Valley Sector, on Wednesday, June 2, 2021 in La Joya, Texas.Gary Coronado | Los Angeles Times | Getty Images U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has launched a new operation to send court documents to unauthorized migrants who were not processed for deportation after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border this year.  The documents include "notices to appear," which instruct migrants to attend court hearings before U.S. immigration judges who will determine if they can remain in the country or will be deported.

"By mailing out these charging documents, ICE is initiating removal proceedings in a timely way," ICE said in a statement to CNBC on Thursday.  Some immigration advocates have...
    Attorney General Merrick Garland issued an opinion Thursday recognizing the ability of immigration judges to administratively close a removal proceeding, which effectively removes a deportation case from the docket without technically disposing of the case. The opinion overturned a previous one from then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a case known as the Matter of Castro-Tum, where Sessions held that there was no legal authority to administratively close such a case, as had previously been done. The Justice Department, in December 2020, issued a rule reflecting that position, but that was soon blocked on the grounds that it did not follow the rule-making process set by the Administrative Procedure Act. REPUBLICANS SOUND ALARM ON DEMOCRATS' AMNESTY PUSH FOR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS IN $3.5T BUDGET PACKAGE "Because Castro-Tum departed from long-standing practice, it is appropriate to overrule that opinion in its entirety and restore administrative closure pending the reconsideration of the 2020 rule through notice-and-comment rulemaking, which will ‘afford[] all interested parties a full and fair opportunity to participate and ensure[] that the relevant facts and analysis are collected and evaluated,’" Garland wrote....

    New York : An immigrant could complicate his case by committing any crime. Photo: John Moor / . The recent Supreme Court decision against the immigrant Clemente Pereida reinforces the warning to immigrants to avoid committing any crime or misdemeanor that may be considered “moral clumsiness”. The Citizenship and Naturalization Act (INA) contemplates a long list of crimes, tied with the codes of the United States, that is, they also apply to any citizen, unlike that they would face prison, not deportation. “The INA expressly requires that people seeking exemption from legal deportation orders demonstrate all aspects of their eligibility,” said the judge in his opinion. Neil gorsuch, appointed by the former president Donald trump. “That includes showing that they are not convicted of a disqualifying criminal offense.” Pereida’s case had several twists and turns, such as the fact that his conviction for fraud in Nebraska using a false Social Security number was state, not federal, but the Supreme Court has ruled that immigrants must prove they are eligible for immigration benefits. . The INA...
    The Supreme Court ruled in a 7-to-2 decision on Thursday that the Trump administration could expedite deportation proceedings for certain asylum-seekers without introducing asylum cases to the federal courts. The ruling applies to asylum-seekers who are picked up near the border and fail their initial screenings, making them eligible for expedited deportation, the Associated Press reported. The decision affirmed that the government can deport people who lack a credible asylum case without an immigration court ruling. A typical asylum case does not mandate judicial review of the “credible fear” determination under the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act. Asylum applicants must first demonstrate a credible fear of persecution in order to pass screenings.

Thuraissigiam, authorities determined that Sri Lankan national Vijayakumar Thuraissigiam did not demonstrate a credible fear, and he was unable to appeal his case to an immigration judge. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled at the time that denying an appeal prior...
