Trump Administration Indicates It Will Seek to Implement Latinx Ban at Southern Border

WASHINGTON — News media reported today that the Trump administration is considering a ban aimed at preventing certain individuals from exercising their legal right to seek asylum in the United States.

The news, which is alarmingly reminiscent of Trump’s early days in office, when he acted on a campaign promise to ban Muslims from traveling to the United States, comes as a group of mostly Honduran women, children, and men makes its way through Mexico to the southern U.S. border. With abundant news coverage of the group’s journey and the midterm elections just days away, Trump has fixated on politicizing the group’s plight, spreading racist lies to stoke fear and promising to shut down and deploy hundreds of additional military service members to the southern border.

Marielena Hincapié, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center, issued the following statement:

“This is one more disturbing and dangerous development in a string of xenophobic attacks on immigrant communities. With this threat to ban Latinx immigrants, Trump is once again showing us that his racism-driven cruelty has no bounds, as he did with the implementation of the Muslim ban and separation of families at the border. Since day one of Trump’s presidency, he has made it clear that his administration will do anything in its power to make immigrants feel unsafe and unwelcome in this country.

“It is unconscionable that Trump continues to play political games while putting forth radical and extremist policies which will have real-life consequences for people seeking to exercise their legal rights to apply for asylum, as well as cause unprecedented economic harm to the vibrant U.S.-Mexico border communities that depend on migrants coming back and forth daily.

“We will continue to stand with our civil rights, Latinx, immigrant, Muslim, and refugee communities to fight these xenophobic and hateful attacks. We are strong. We are resilient. We will use every tool to stop Trump from undermining the Constitution and international laws and from instituting his administration’s agenda to impose a Latinx ban in any form. We call all communities to reject these policies of hate. We can and must be better than this.”

1,500+ Organizations Launch Nationwide Push Against Trump Regulation Rigging Immigration System for the Wealthy

1,500+ Organizations Launch Nationwide Push Against Trump Regulation Rigging Immigration System for the Wealthy

WASHINGTON — More than 1,500 national, state, and local advocates representing all 50 states and the District of Columbia spoke out Wednesday, urging the public to oppose dangerous new Trump administration regulations proposed this morning. Advocates for immigrant families, economic opportunity, health, nutrition, women, and faith communities signed a joint statement (below) urging the American people to submit public comments opposing the regulation.

The administration’s “public charge” regulation effectively restricts immigration access based on income. It would put people at risk of immigration denials if they use Medicaid, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Medicare’s prescription drug benefit, housing assistance, or other programs. Experts warn that the plan would worsen hunger, unmet health and housing needs, and other problems by making immigrant families — including families with U.S.-born children — afraid to get the help they need. The proposal gives preference to applicants with annual incomes above $62,000. Advocates warned that the proposal would put wealthy immigrants ahead of families and expands a policy that has been historically abused.

“The proposal is reckless, deeply unfair, and inconsistent with core American values. It equates worth with wealth and moves families who have already waited years to the end of the line. But the law gives us all a voice on proposed regulations, so we can still stop this one. We urge all who care about children and economic opportunity to fight back, by submitting public comments and encouraging others to speak out,” said Olivia Golden, executive director of the Center for Law and Social Policy.

White House aide Stephen Miller, architect of the administration’s child separation policy, is reported to have led the “public charge” effort. Historians have warned that public charge regulations have been abused in the past to deny otherwise-eligible applicants access to lawful immigration avenues, based on race and religion. Because it would primarily affect family-based immigrants, the Trump proposal will disproportionately affect families of color, especially Latinos and Asian-American and Pacific Islanders.

“The same administration that used your tax dollars to tear babies from their mothers’ arms wants sweeping new powers to decide what American looks like. They’ve proven they can’t be trusted with that power, so we must not let them have it. Take the power back by submitting public comments and demanding that our elected representatives tell you where they stand on this issue, before you step into the voting booth in November,” said Marielena Hincapié, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center.

Federal law requires that the administration give the public an opportunity to comment on this expansive proposal, when and if it is formally proposed. Commenters will not be required to give their address or divulge their immigration status. Members of the public may post official comments through the advocacy website www.ProtectingImmigrantFamilies.org.

October 10, 2018

The Trump administration formally proposed sweeping regulations this morning that endanger the lives of immigrant families, including families with children born in the United States. The “public charge” regulation puts money ahead of family, and threatens to worsen hunger, poverty, and unmet health and housing needs. This is not the kind of nation we want to be.

This proposed regulation would mark a fundamental change from our nation’s historic commitment to welcoming immigrants.  It would radically reshape our legal immigration system, putting the wealthy at the front of the line, ahead of hardworking families who have waited years to reunite. No longer would the U.S. be a beacon for the world’s dreamers and strivers. Instead, America’s doors would be open only to the highest bidder.

The proposal also deepens the nation’s racial divide. Immigrants who come to the United States through a family-based petition are overwhelmingly immigrants of color.  The administration’s choice to target family-based immigrants will worsen disparities in health, hunger, and every other social malady.

Sweeping in its effect, the rule discounts the contribution of working families. It would chill access to critical programs that help tax-paying immigrants and their families access health care, food, and other essential needs.  These programs have helped to improve participants’ health, well-being, school success, and economic security. The proposal would make — and has already made — immigrant families afraid to seek programs that support basic needs. With about one in four children having at least one immigrant parent, this issue touches millions and is critical now and for our nation’s future.

We, the undersigned, strongly oppose this proposed rule, which threatens the health and well-being of all of us, including immigrants. We urge the public to speak out against this dangerous proposal, by submitting comments opposing it online at www.ProtectingImmigrantFamilies.org. We also urge the administration to withdraw the proposal and work with us to build policies that support immigrants as healthy, productive and successful members of America’s communities and families.

NILC Statement Ahead of Confirmation Vote to U.S. Supreme Court of Judge Brett Kavanaugh

NILC Issues Statement Ahead of Confirmation Vote to U.S. Supreme Court of Judge Brett Kavanaugh

WASHINGTON — The United States Senate today voted to advance the nomination of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court of the United States. The vote comes after a limited FBI investigation this week into allegations by multiple women who spoke out about Kavanaugh’s past actions. The Senate’s action sets up a final confirmation vote expected to take place Saturday, October 6.

Marielena Hincapié, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center, issued the following statement:

“Kavanaugh’s record shows a dangerous disregard for the rights of women, workers, and immigrants, a disregard that was revealed when he denied the constitutional right of a 17-year-old rape survivor in immigration detention to obtain a safe abortion last year. And, at his hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee last week, Judge Kavanaugh allowed the nation to see his true character, making it clear once again that he is unfit for a lifetime appointment to the nation’s highest court.

“In weighing whether to support Kavanaugh’s nomination, senators must not only take the allegations against him seriously, they must also recognize that in his hearing to address them, he repeatedly lied under oath, spouted conspiracy theories, and lashed out angrily at Democratic senators. This behavior is unacceptable for any position where the core responsibility is to ethically and impartially interpret our nation’s laws.

“Americans of all backgrounds believe Dr. Ford and the other women who have come forward, and we have been galvanized by their incredible strength and courage. If our country’s leaders disregard them, we all will remember and make our concerns heard with our votes.

“For women, survivors of sexual violence, and marginalized communities in particular, the courts have been a bulwark of protection and a core defender of constitutional rights. Maintaining the dignity of the Supreme Court is essential to the strength and integrity of our democracy. Its role in upholding the rights and values that we, as a nation, cherish most cannot be overstated.

“This has been a flawed process from the very beginning, and Judge Kavanaugh has failed to demonstrate — both through his judicial record and through his conduct before the Senate Judiciary Committee — that he has what it takes to be a fair arbiter on the Supreme Court. If the senate votes to confirm him, it will cause immeasurable damage that will impact the lives of everyone in this country for years to come.”

Trump’s Dystopian Vision for the Future Is Based on Fear, Not Facts

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 30, 2018

Juan Gastelum, [email protected], 213-375-3149

Trump’s Dystopian Vision for the Future Is Based on Fear, Not Facts

WASHINGTON — In his first State of the Union address, President Trump laid out a blueprint for the future of the country. A cornerstone of this vision includes policies designed to turn back the clock on our nation’s immigration system by curbing legal immigration by as much as 50 percent. This proposal comes after several weeks of the White House’s failure to achieve a legislative fix to allow DACA recipients to continue to live and work in the United States.

Below is a statement from Marielena Hincapié, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center:

“President Trump did his best to distract from the plain and simple fact that his administration failed to address the needs of the many working Americans who voted for him. The president, who pledged to keep jobs in the United States and increase wages for those struggling to make ends meet, instead delivered a tax cut to the billionaire class. One constant, however, has been his dogged commitment to attempt to divide our communities by scapegoating immigrants.

“The American people weren’t fooled by Trump’s discriminatory Muslim ban or by his xenophobic attempt to exploit the DACA crisis to enact a white nationalist wish list. We certainly won’t be fooled by any attempt to pit workers, whether immigrant or native born, against each other.

“A president should be capable of moving beyond Twitter attacks and dog whistle politics to focus instead on issues that will help all our communities. Sadly, President Trump seemed unable to accomplish this feat tonight.”

Five Things to Know about the Latest USCIS Announcement

USCIS and DACA Renewal Applications
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

THE TORCH: CONTENTSBy Ignacia Rodriguez, NILC, and Sanaa Abrar and Greisa Martinez, United We Dream

Last updated JANUARY 29, 2018 | Versión en español

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has announced that it would resume accepting DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) renewal applications beginning January 13, 2018. This policy change is in response to the January 9 injunction by a U.S. district court in San Francisco requiring the federal government to resume accepting DACA renewal applications. This policy reversal is the result of several lawsuits challenging the Trump administration’s September 5, 2017, decision to terminate the wildly successful DACA program.

This is another victory on the path to winning a permanent solution for immigrant youth, which is the Dream Act, optimally by February 8. We will be providing updates as more information becomes available, but here are the top five things we think you should know:

1. USCIS is now accepting certain DACA renewal applications. If your DACA expired on or after September 5, 2016, you may send USCIS a DACA renewal application. This means you must fill out the latest versions of Form I-821D, Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals; Form I-765, Application for Employment Authorization; and Form I-765WS Worksheet. If your DACA expired before September 5, 2016, you must reapply by filing your application as a first-time one rather than as a renewal. All applicants, whether filing as first-timers or as renewing, must include the date their DACA expired or will expire on Part 1 of the Form I-821D.

2. USCIS will not accept new DACA applications from people who haven’t applied previously. No actually first-time DACA applications will be accepted by USCIS. If you are eligible for DACA now but have not applied for it in the past, this announcement does not apply to you.

3. Requests for advance parole from DACA recipients will not be accepted. USCIS will not accept or approve any advance parole requests from DACA recipients.

4. We do not know how long USCIS will continue to accept DACA renewal applications. The Trump administration stated that it plans to “vigorously” challenge the district court’s decision. This means that the window of time available for submitting your DACA renewal application is uncertain. If you fulfill the requirements mentioned above, you should assess whether to apply immediately.

5. Our fight to get the Dream Act passed by February 8 continues! This is a testament to the work that undocumented youth have led to fight back against Trump’s decision to end DACA, which was announced on Sept. 5, 2017. However, we can’t keep living our lives in monthly — or daily — limbo. Our goal is clear: win the Dream Act by February 8. Not all of us are protected by DACA, so our community remains at risk of detention and deportation until we win a permanent legislative solution.

NILC Statement on Federal Court Order Blocking End of DACA

NILC Statement on Federal Court Order Blocking End of DACA

LOS ANGELES — A federal court today blocked the Trump administration’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, ordering the administration to resume accepting DACA renewal applications from anyone, nationwide, previously covered by the program. The decision from the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California comes after the administration, on Sept. 5, announced an abrupt ending of the DACA program, setting an arbitrary deadline of only a month later for some DACA recipients to reapply. More than 15,000 DACA recipients have since lost their work permits and have become vulnerable to detention and deportation.

The decision today by the federal court in California deals with a set of related cases brought by the University of California and others. A hearing to consider similar claims in a separate lawsuit challenging the termination of DACA, Batalla Vidal v. Nielsen, is set for Jan. 18 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, in Brooklyn.

Karen Tumlin, legal director at the National Immigration Law Center, issued the following statement:

“Since President Trump rescinded DACA, we’ve been fighting on every front to ensure that immigrant youth have a secure future in this country, which is their home. We know that the administration’s decision to end the program and the way it was carried out was not only immoral, but unlawful. A federal court in California has now blocked the administration’s decision, ordering that renewal applications be accepted nationwide. The court’s order does not require the administration to accept new DACA applications for now.

“This victory should make it even more clear that Congress must act now. Dreamers — and our nation — deserve more than temporary relief from the courts; they deserve a bipartisan Dream Act. The American people, a majority of Congress and the president all want to see it happen. It’s time for Congress to get it done.”

JFS v. Trump Team Responds to Court Ruling Blocking Implementation of Trump’s Policy Banning Certain Refugees

U.S. district court in Seattle heard arguments on Thurs., Dec. 21, in challenge to latest ban

SEATTLE — Today, U.S. District Judge James Robart issued a ruling largely blocking implementation of the Trump administration’s most recent refugee restrictions which suspended the admission of refugees from 11 countries, nine of which are predominantly Muslim, for a minimum of 90 days. The restrictions also stopped the follow-to-join process, which reunites family members with refugees already in the United States.

This is the latest legal setback for the Trump administration, which was also handed a loss yesterday by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in the latest iteration of the administration’s Muslim ban. Today’s ruling stops the implementation of the new refugee restrictions for refugees with bona fide relationships to the United States.

The decision follows a December 21 hearing in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington regarding two challenges to the Trump administration’s October 25 ban on refugees.

Jewish Family Service v. Trump was brought by the International Refugee Assistance Project (IRAP); the National Immigration Law Center (NILC); Lauren Aguiar, Mollie M. Kornreich, and Abigail Shaheen Davis; Perkins Coie LLP; and HIAS, the global Jewish nonprofit that protects refugees, on behalf of Jewish Family Service of Seattle, Jewish Family Services of Silicon Valley, and individual plaintiffs.

The second challenge heard as part of the hearing was ACLU of Washington v. Trump, brought by the ACLU of Washington, on behalf of plaintiff Joseph Doe, a refugee living in Washington state who seeks to be reunited with his family.

In response to the ruling, the counsel and plaintiffs issued the following statements:

Esther Sung, staff attorney, NILC: “The courts have once again rejected the administration’s unlawful attempt to turn its back on refugees. We are proud to stand alongside our plaintiffs, refugees, and Muslims in fighting the Trump Administration’s Muslim Bans.”

Rabbi Will Berkovitz, chief executive officer, Jewish Family Service of Seattle: “We are thrilled that families will have the chance to be reunited and refugees who have suffered so much will have the chance to make it to safety. As we celebrate this moment, we remember our ancestors who did not have anyone standing with them or for them.”

Mindy Berkowitz, executive director, Jewish Family Services of Silicon Valley: “We are grateful for the judge’s ruling and proud to have acted on our Jewish values in defense of our vulnerable refugee clients. We are committed to always doing so until every last refugee is reunited with his or her family.”

Mark Hetfield, president and CEO, HIAS: “During HIAS’ first 40 years, from 1881 to 1921, this country gave refuge to over two million Jewish refugees while Asians were barred from entry due to the Chinese Exclusion Act. The American Jewish community did not protest because we thought it did not affect us. Then, in 1921, Congress did the same to us. Today and every day, we defend the rights of refugees, whoever they are, because we know the consequences of shutting our doors.”

Mariko Hirose, litigation director, IRAP: “This administration has attacked refugee resettlement since the first issuance of the Muslim ban, leaving vulnerable refugees left in limbo. This ruling brings relief to thousands of refugees in precarious situations in the Middle East and East Africa, as well as to refugees already in the U.S. who are trying to reunite with their spouses and children.”

Congress Failed Dreamers and the Country Tonight

Congress Failed Dreamers and the Country Tonight
We Are Disappointed but Undeterred in Our Fight for Justice

WASHINGTON — Following the U.S. Senate’s approval of a short-term spending bill to keep the federal government running for four more weeks, members of Congress broke for the holidays today without addressing the precarious situation facing hundreds of thousands of immigrant youth and their families. Congress failed also to provide adequate relief funding for disaster-impacted areas and to fully reauthorize a vital health insurance program for children.

Marielena Hincapié, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center, issued the following statement:

“Today, Congress voted callously to place millions of Americans – and citizens in waiting – in harm’s way. By leaving town, they’re leaving immigrant youth at risk of deportation, children at risk of losing health coverage, and families without the overdue relief they need to overcome recent natural disasters.

“Far too many senators have claimed to stand for the bipartisan Dream Act when it was convenient, and then voted tonight to fund Dreamers’ deportations. Those who call themselves champions for Dreamers but voted against them tonight should feel nothing but shame. While they’re at home celebrating, millions of families will continue in a state of uncertainty, instability, and anxiety, wondering if this may be their last holiday season together.

“It is immoral that some members of Congress refuse to acknowledge the situation of Dreamers for the Trump-fabricated crisis it is. More than 13,000 immigrant youth have lost DACA protections since September, and 3,400 more will become vulnerable to deportation before the next spending bill vote in January. Their lives should weigh heavily on the conscious of every member of Congress.

“This crisis is part of this administration’s continued attempt to implement a white supremacist agenda. But we are also here because some Democrats failed to stand with their brave colleagues to defend their principles and fight for immigrant youth and children needing health care.

“On the heels of the tax heist one thing is clear: We must hold Congress accountable. We must unite and work together for children, families, low-income immigrants, and all of our communities.

“Congress may be leaving town, but we are here to stay. We will be here and ready to put our elected officials back to work in January. We are resolute in our mission to ensure that immigrant youth have a secure future in this country, which is their home, and we will continue to fight alongside immigrant youth and our partners until we win.”

NILC Urges Senate to Reject House Spending Bill, Do Right By Dreamers

NILC Urges Senate to Reject House Spending Bill, Do Right by Dreamers

WASHINGTON — The U.S. House of Representatives today approved a temporary spending bill to keep the government open and running past Friday, when current funding expires. The four-week continuing resolution does not address urgent issues affecting millions of Americans, including a solution for immigrant youth, adequate emergency relief funding for disaster-impacted areas, or a full reauthorization of a vital health insurance program for children. The bill will now be sent to the Senate.

Marielena Hincapié, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center, issued the following statement:

“On the heels of the disastrous tax bill, the House voted today to keep hundreds of thousands of young people and their families in excruciating uncertainty and wondering if this could be their last holiday season together. That is cruel and shameful. Anyone who has claimed to stand with Dreamers who voted for this bill just endorsed their deportation.

“More than 13,000 immigrant youth have already lost DACA protections, including their ability to work and contribute fully to their communities. Americans across all sectors of civic life have raised their voices to tell Congress to enact a solution this year. With each passing day, more immigrant youth become vulnerable to deportation.

“It is now up to the Senate to take a stand and do what is best for the country and morally right. We urge Senators from both parties to come together and vote for a spending bill that includes the bipartisan Dream Act and CHIP reauthorization.”

Congress, Now is Your Time: Pass the Dream Act Before the Holidays

Congress, Now is Your Time: Pass the Dream Act Before the Holidays

WASHINGTON — With two days left before the end of the legislative session, Congress must vote on spending legislation to avoid a government shutdown. This is their final opportunity to take action on a bipartisan Dream Act that will allow 800,000 recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, to go home to their families knowing that this won’t be the last holiday they spend together.

Since President Trump ended DACA in September, leaders on both sides of the aisle have stressed the urgent need for a swift bipartisan fix that will allow Dreamers to continue to contribute to the country they call home. Immigrant youth have put their faith in the government to come up with a solution, and now it is up to Congress to keep their promise.

Marielena Hincapié, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center, issued the following statement:

“Congress, the time to act is now. We cannot continue to defer the futures of hundreds of thousands of immigrant youth. Before you go home for the holidays, we are holding you accountable: pass a bipartisan Dream Act before the end of the year and deliver on your promise to Dreamers and their families. More than 13,000 DACA recipients have already lost protections. We cannot wait any longer.”

Brittany Aguilera, a DACA recipient whose work authorization expired earlier this month, added:

“For those like myself, whose DACA is now gone, for those who are waiting for theirs to expire, whose futures remain unknown, and for our families who are trying to maintain joy at the end of a very hard year, we are urging Congress to act now. This can all be resolved by passing a clean Dream Act. You can restore the holiday joy and promise of a prosperous and hopeful new year to all of us whose futures remain uncertain. Please, I and so many others like me are begging for you to hear our prayers and our words. Pass the Dream Act and start the New Year off right.”
