  1. 1. 10 Essential Immigration News Stories You Should Know About http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com August 2015
  2. 2. August 2015 10
  3. 3. 1 Asian Pacific And Latin American Youth: Different Approaches To Temporary Deportation Relief http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  4. 4. Here Is The News
  5. 5. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com August 2015 marked the 3rd anniversary of DACA. DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals provides temporary relief from deportation as well as work authorization for immigrant youth who entered the U.S. without authorization.
  6. 6. Approximately 979,000 unauthorized immigrants from Latin America and the Asia Pacific met all criteria for DACA at the August 2012 launch. Far less Asian Pacific youth sought DACA: • Latin America – 77% • Asia Pacific – 21% http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  7. 7. The top application rates by eligible youth by country: Latin America • El Salvador 91% • Argentina 91% • Mexico 82% • Honduras 81% Asia Pacific • Pakistan 28% • Philippines 23% • India 20% • South Korea 20% http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  8. 8. 2 Immigration Jails Facing Financial Collapse? http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  9. 9. Here Is The News
  10. 10. Jails built to profit from an illegal immigration boom are now weighing down the finances of rural counties in the U.S. Sunbelt. In Maverick County, situated along the banks of the Rio Grande River, an immigrant detention facility built in 2007 using $43 million in revenue bonds is slated to close this month after failing to service its debt. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  11. 11. The current financial downturn in the profits of immigration jails has a direct connection to deportation and detention policies. The drop-off follows a two-decade boom that saw the number of immigrant detainees mushroom. County jails grew overcrowded. Now, as apprehensions slow, the profits slow down as well. The average daily population in ICE detention was 31,164 in June. This is down 16% from the same period a year ago. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  12. 12. It‟s simple economics. Private businesses must make a profit, or at least break even, to stay in business. The less detainees, the less revenues. As various reports have show, the key to jail profitability has been the immigrant bed quota set by Congress of 34,000 detainees per day. It costs about $159.00 per day to house one detainee. The average detention time is 31 days. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  13. 13. 3 Will Advertising Slow Down Refugee Flow? http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  14. 14. Here Is The News
  15. 15. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection (USCBP) and the Department of State have created ads to warn the public in Mexico and Central America about false information regarding U.S. immigration laws. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  16. 16. The first-of-its- kind ad campaign is centered on four countries: • El Salvador • Guatemala • Honduras • Mexico http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  17. 17. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com The Spanish language ads say: “The U.S. immigration law has not changed. Those trying to cross the border without proper documents do not have permission and will be the subjects for immediate deportation under President Obama‟s recently-announced immigration guidelines.” “If anyone says or promises something different, please, do not believe them. Protect yourself!”
  18. 18. 4 Trump‟s Plan To End Birthright Citizenship http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  19. 19. Here Is The News
  20. 20. Presidential candidate Donald Trump does not want children born in America to acquire U.S. citizenship if their parents are in the country illegally. Birthright citizenship, legally known as jus soli, guarantees the right of citizenship to people born on American soil.http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  21. 21. Trump calls birth right citizenship the biggest magnet for illegal immigration. He is wrong for several reasons: 1. The „magnet” argument has never been proven. There is no empirical evidence that ending citizenship rights deter unauthorized immigration. 2. Repealing the 14th Amendment is not a deportation magic wand. It might disenfranchise second- generation immigrants, but most will continue living in the country. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  22. 22. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com 3. The undocumented population in the country would swell. The number of immigrants living in the shadows would grow to 25 million if the law applied to children with just one parent living here without permission. 4. The economy would suffer. No matter what skills they have, immigrants do better and contribute more to society when they have legal protections like citrizenship. 5. Anchor babies mythology. U.S. citizens children cannot sponsor parents until they are 21 years old, making anyone using the anchor baby scheme unlikely to succeed.
  23. 23. 5 Filipino Immigration: A Quick Glance http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  24. 24. Here Is The News
  25. 25. In terms of immigrants arriving in the U.S. since 1990, the Philippines has been consistently among the top five countries. It was the fourth largest immigrant community in 2013, accounting for 4.5% of the 41 million immigrants in the United States. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  26. 26. In 1934, the Tydings- McDuffie Act was passed. The act committed the U.S. to grant Philippine independence by 1945, but it limited immigration from the island to only 50 per year. At the end of World War II, the United States viewed Filipinos as loyal allies and the quotas were doubled in 1946 to 100 per year. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  27. 27. The Filipino immigrant community in the U.S. began to jump in 1965. Part of the increase was due to the removal of the national- origin system under the Immigration And Nationality Act. Long-established governmental and business relationships between the two countries, following World War II, also played a big role in the growth of Filipino immigration to the U.S. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  28. 28. 6 A Lack Of Compassion: Vandals Destroy Desert Water Stations http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  29. 29. Here Is The News
  30. 30. Vandals are targeting water stations that help migrants survive the heat when they cross the desert. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  31. 31. Humane Borders is a non-profit organization in Tucson, Arizona. Their goal is to take death out of the immigration equation. Humane Borders: • Works with property owners to provide water stations for migrants crossing the desert • Collects data about migrant travel patterns • Coordinates agency partnerships to reduce migrant deaths, identify deceased individuals, and lessen the suffering of families whose members have passed away on desert trails. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  32. 32. Joel Smith, the Director of Operations, says it takes longer for someone to destroy a water station than it takes for him to set it up. He said he is not going to let the vandals win. Smith explains, “The stations are there for people who need it. The water is there for life. It‟s all about life.” Anyone who wishes to donate to Humane Borders can visit humaneborders.org. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  33. 33. 7 Illegal Immigrants Add $12 Billion Per Year To Social Security http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  34. 34. Here Is The News
  35. 35. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com According to estimates, 7 million people are currently working in the U.S. without permission. About 3.1 million are using fake social security numbers, yet also paying automatic payroll taxes.
  36. 36. Overall, undocumented immigrants pay $13 billion per year to the Social Security Trust Fund. They only get about $1 billion back. The net gain for the SSA is $12 billion per year. Because they are in the U.S. illegally, it is unlikely they will be able to benefit from their contributions later in life. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  37. 37. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com Under the Social Security protection Act of 2004, the SSA is restricted from authorizing benefits to undocumented immigrants unless they were provided a social security number for work or admitted to the U.S. with a temporary visa for business purposes. Unauthorized workers usually prove their work eligibility with fake ID cards and social security numbers. They have taxes taken out of their checks, like any other employee. The money goes to the federal treasury to fund programs like Social Security and Medicare.
  38. 38. 8 A Growing Crisis: The Burnout Of Judges http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  39. 39. Here Is The News
  40. 40. Since 2007, the immigration court backlog has increased by 160%. The number of immigration judges rose by just 15%. The result: delayed hearings, delayed justice. A real example. In one of my cases, two weeks ago, a new date was set. The date is in November 2019. That‟s four years away. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  41. 41. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com There are ongoing efforts to increase the number of judges. But the hiring cannot be done quickly enough. Given the huge caseloads, scarce resources, and public stories of stress and burnout, finding attorneys trained in immigration law to accept judicial positions is not an easy sell.
  42. 42. Comments from judges responding to a recent survey include: “Hearing asylum cases, especially the ones in which the witnesses testify credibly, has affected my view of the world. I have lost most of my faith in humankind, and I fear deeply for the future.” “I have been in government service for decades, including combat duty, and I have never detested a working environment more than I do in this capacity.” http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  43. 43. 9 Should Street Gangs Be Considered Terrorists? http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  44. 44. Here Is The News
  45. 45. In a move almost certain to spark U.S. asylum cases, the El Salvador Supreme Court ruled that street gangs are to be viewed as terrorist groups. Last summer, over 60,000 immigrants from Central America arrived at U.S. borders seeking entry to escape the violence of gangs in their homelands. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  46. 46. Lawyers representing Central America youth refugees will likely raise the El Salvador court decision to support their clients claims. El Savador‟s gangs were already notorious for kidnapping, prostitution rings, extortion, and drug trafficking. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  47. 47. The court decision was reached after 14 members of the Barrio 18 gang were killed in a prison. While defense lawyers for gang members challenge the new law, El Salvador will continue to tap the telephones and freeze funds belonging to known gang members. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  48. 48. 10 Why Sanders Would Revitalize Immigration Reform Efforts http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  49. 49. Here Is The News
  50. 50. The campaign of Bernie Sanders for President stands in stark contrast to that of Donald Trump. Whereas Trump proposes to curtail citizenship rights, Sanders proudly asserts that America is a nation of immigrants. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  51. 51. Trump argues illegal immigrants take more out of the U.S. tax system than they put into it, and that they steal jobs of American workers. On the other hand, Sanders feels America is a story of hard-working families coming to the U.S. to create a brighter future for their children and for the good of the nation. Sanders points out that poor U.S. free trade policies like NAFTA have created economic and political problems for all involved countries. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
  52. 52. Since the implementation of NAFTA, the number of Mexicans living below the poverty line has increased by over 14 million people. Almost 2 million small farmers have been displaced. Sanders notes it is not surprising there has been an unprecedented growth in the number of undocumented immigrants from Mexico from 1992 to 2011. http://www.bataraimmigrationlaw.com
