  • Article: As One ‘Tent City’ for Immigrant Children Closes in Texas, Another Opens in Florida By Ericka Cruz for Immigration Impact

    As One ‘Tent City’ for Immigrant Children Closes in Texas, Another Opens in Florida by Ericka Cruz for Immigration Impact Earlier this month, the Trump administration officially closed the doors of a “tent city” holding over 2,800 immigrant children in Tornillo, Texas. The closure comes after months of public pressure and local organizing. However, any celebration is short-lived. Just days after Tornillo’s closure, the administration announced its plan to increase bed space in another juvenile tent city in Homestead, Florida. The tent city of Tornillo, about 35 miles from El Paso, Texas opened in November 2016. It later became a major point of controversy when it started being used to house an influx of unaccompanied minors and children who had been separated from their parents in the summer of 2018. Since it opened, the Tornillo tent city experienced major pushback from the local community due to its military barracks-style conditions, as well as its limited access to medical and mental health care and educational opportunities for the children detained there . Because Tornillo—and now Homestead—are classified as “emergency” or “influx” shelters, they skirt state child welfare guidelines. Although these sites are deemed “temporary,” the trauma and pain that the children suffer within these facilities is permanent. In “emergency” detention facilities, there are lower standards for staff vetting, training, youth education, and health, as they follow only a loose set of Health and Human Services guidelines. Despite Tornillo closing, the administration announced they expect to almost double their capacity at the Homestead, Florida facility from 1,350 children to 2,350 . Tax payers can be expected to pay a great deal to fund Homestead, as was the case with the Tornillo facility. The Texas site cost taxpayers approximately $144 million, amounting to about $400 per day to detain a child. Given the documented high cost of running Tornillo, the Homestead facility will be another costly bill for the American public. The recent e...

  • Article: Case Study: RFE for Software Developer Overturned By Sheila Danzig

    Case Study: RFE for Software Developer Overturned by Sheila Danzig Over the past few years, H-1B RFEs for specialty occupation issues have spiked in frequency. Jobs that never ran into trouble in the past – like engineer or software developer – have quickly become RFE magnets. This next filing season, we expect a very small number of RFEs because in September 2018, USCIS issues a memorandum giving adjudicators the authority and encouragement to reject petitions outright without first issuing an RFE for clarification. That means, any steps that would be taken to answer an RFE must be completed when filing the initial petition. Expert opinion letters were successful in overturning specialty occupation RFEs last season. One beneficiary who contacted us with an H-1B RFE for specialty occupation had applied for the visa with the job of software developer at Wage Level 2. He met H-1B educational qualifications, but CIS took issue with whether his job did. CIS requires a specialty occupation to require a minimum of a US bachelor’s degree or its equivalent for entry into the position. The assumpti...

  • Article: As Shutdown Moves Into Fourth Week, Most Immigration Courts Remain Shuttered By Aaron Reichlin-Melnick for Immigration Impact

    As Shutdown Moves Into Fourth Week, Most Immigration Courts Remain Shuttered by Aaron Reichlin-Melnick for Immigration Impact With the government shutdown dragging into its fourth week—marking the longest shutdown in U.S. history—most of the nation’s immigration courts remain closed. The Trump administration decries immigration court backlogs and has implemented short cuts that limit and threaten due process to address the backlogs. Yet he has contributed to a shutdown that has led to the closure of over 90 percent of immigration courts across the United States. As tens of thousands of cases are rescheduled, lives are put in limbo and the immigration court backlog has skyrocketed. When the government shuts down, agencies can require that certain “essential” employees still report to work, while all “non-essential” employees are furloughed. As with a similar shutdown in 2013 , the Executive Office for Immigration Review determined that the only “essential” immigration judges are those that hear detained cases—ones where non-citizens are being held in detention by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). While the government remains shut down, all cases scheduled in non-detained immigration courts are being cancelled. As of Monday, non-detained immigration courts have been shut down for thirteen working days, the same amount of time they were shut in 2013. As a result of the 2013 shutdown, over 37,000 cases had to be rescheduled . Because the number of immigration judges increased by over one third since 2013, the current shutdown’s effects will likely be much larger. According to an analysis of immigration court records by the nonpartisan Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, by January 11 over 42,000 cases will have been cancelled due to the shutdown. If the shutdown continues through the end of January, over 100,000 cases would have to be rescheduled. Despite tens of thousands of cases being rescheduled, not every case will be affected equally due to the shutdown. The majority of cancelled hearings will be for “master calendar hearings,” generally brief hearings at which immigrants appear in court for procedural matters. These hearings likely will be rescheduled within a matter of months. However, many will have to wait years for a new hearing. Because of the immigration court backlogs, those seeking relief from removal are often forced to wait at least two years for a trial date. Those whose trials have been cancelled due to the shutdown may be forced to go to the back of the line and wait yet another two to thre...

  • Article: The Trump Administration Loses Fight to Add Citizenship Question to the 2020 Census By Melissa Cruz

    The Trump Administration Loses Fight to Add Citizenship Question to the 2020 Census by Melissa Cruz for Immigration Impact A federal judge blocked the Trump administration’s plan to add a question on U.S. citizenship to the 2020 Census on Tuesday, ruling that the controversial move “violated the public trust” and would be damaging to immigrants. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross announced the administration’s intention to add the question – “Is this person a citizen of the United States?” to the Census back in March 2018. Plans to move forward with the new question became quickly tied up in various legal battles, as many feared it would decrease participation in the Census among immigrants. Six former Census Bureau directors also came out in opposition of a citizenship question. In his 277-page ruling, Judge Jesse Furman determined that the secretary had exceeded his authority and the addition had not undergone the rigorous testing required of all new Census questions. Furman also ruled that Ross had concealed “his real reason” for adding the question in the first place. Ross reportedly drafted the question after consulting with former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and politician Kris Kobach, all known for their anti-immigrant views. Including such a question would damage immigrant communities, both advocates and the judge argued. This would be particularly true among noncitizen households. Manipulating the 2020 Census—which will be used to determine electoral college votes in U.S. elections, congressional seats, and federal funding for the next 10 years—would have a lasting impact on political representation. The Court found that a decline in self-response rates among noncitizens households would “cause several jurisdictions to lose seats in the next congressional apportionment and that it will cause another set of jurisdictions to lose political representation in the next round of intrastate redistricting.” Losing that political power would essentially strip already underrepresented communities of key representation and resources. Population Reference Bureau estimates that up to one in 10 U.S. households—or 45 million people—would be at risk of not being counted if a citizenship question is asked. The Trump administration has not announced how it will respond to the judgement, but the government could appeal or move the case directly to the Supreme Court. If the Supreme Court decides to take up the full case , then it could be heard in the spring. As it stands, however, Judge Furman’s ruling is a welcome victory for maintaining the integrity and accuracy of the Census. This post originally appeared on Immigra...

  • Article: The Repatriation Process in El Salvador and Arguments of Relocation in U.S. Immigration Hearings By Robert Kirkland and Duncan Breda

    The Repatriation Process in El Salvador and Arguments of Relocation in U.S. Immigration Hearings by Robert Kirkland and Duncan Breda Introduction: The purpose of this article is examine the Salvadoran repatriation process and how the government tracks its citizens. In immigration hearings, the U.S. government regularly asserts that respondents who are threatened by gangs can relocate to other areas of El Salvador, obtain jobs, and function normally without detection. However, there are a number of mechanisms the Salvadoran government uses in order to know where its citizens live. Given that the Salvadoran bureaucracy has been compromised by officials under the pay of gangs or been infiltrated by gang members themselves, gangs can use these same databases to track persons of interest and continue to threaten them. It is highly probable, therefore, that no person can prevent gangs finding out where they live in the long term. Repatriation Process: When a Salvadoran is repatriated, they fall under local repatriation arrangements signed by both U.S. and Salvadoran government officials designed to strengthen the bilateral framework for the protection of Salvadoran citizens being returned to El Salvador, improve the efficient use of limited resources, and increase coordination during the repatriation process. Before or during the repatriation, the Department of Homeland Security provides El Salvador a list of the persons to be repatriated and pertinent information on Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Form I-216. [1] When individuals who have been convicted of criminal offenses are being repatriated through formal immigration proceedings, information added includes alias, convictions and dates, and time served. In addition, Salvadoran officials have web access to the U.S. Criminal History Information Sharing (CHIS) which includes biometric information (photographs and fingerprints). DHS Automated Biometric Identification System (IDENT) stores fingerprints on behalf of DHS component agencies which can be readily accessed by Salvadoran authorities. Note that the CHIS applies to both criminal and non-criminal deportees. In a previous article, we examined the CHIS in more detail [2] . Therefore, when a repatriated citizen is returned, Salvadoran authorities have a good deal of information on each person. This data is augmented by several necessary disclosures each returnee must do in order to move throughout the country, hold a job, or drive a vehicle. Identification: Salvadoran citizens must have some sort of identification. Recent deportees can carry a U.S. identification such as a state drivers license. Nevertheless, U.S. identification are not accepted for most transactions. The Documento Único de Identidad, or DUI as it is commonly known, is the most widely used form of identification in El Salvador. It is essentially a voter registration card. One...

    January 15 - EB5 OK With Unsecured Loans

    Comment: EB5 OK With Unsecured Loans Please see below an article by Matt Gordon on the recent case Zhang v USCIS. USCIS has had a long practice of accepting loans as source of funds for EB-5, as long as the loan was lawfully sourced and secured by assets owned by the investor. Now the restriction of "secured" loan has been removed. In Zhang v USCIS the court ruled that plain language of the regulation means that unsecured loans from anyone, even unrelated third parties are acceptable for EB-5 purposes--dramatically expanding the use of loans in EB-5. Since the ruling was based on plain language, no Chevron deference was given. The plain language of the regulation binds USCIS as it binds anyone else. This ruling greatly expands the EB-5 market because many countries tax gifts but not loans. Relatives may also be more willing to loan money rather than gifting it, thus dramatically expanding the capital accessible to a prospective EB-5 investor. We expect that this ruling will dramatically expand EB-5 markets especially in countries like India.
