Officials deny papal role in release of immigrant from custody

Some Florida residents might be disappointed by the claim of U.S. officials that the temporary release of a Mexican national from a detention facility has nothing to do with the pope. The man's 10-year-old daughter had traveled from the United States to the Vatican with a group of children of undocumented workers to ask the pope to speak to President Obama about their parents' plights. When the girl had a chance to speak to the pope, she told him her father was suffering.

Deported woman was a US citizen

Travelers coming to the United States must satisfy immigration officials who are stationed at border crossings at airports, such as Miami International Airport, that they are legally entitled to enter the country. A U.S. citizen usually has an easy time passing through immigration checkpoints and into the country, but this was not the case for a woman whose citizenship was questioned by officials.

Case shows importance of knowing criminal and immigration law

When undocumented immigrants in our state are charged and convicted with criminal activity, these charges a lot of the time can interfere with immigration proceedings. They can even result in deportation as well. And while residents here in Florida know that these situations occur from time to time, it’s often hard to consider just how harrowing they can be without seeing an example.

Immigrant minors being detained longer than allowed, study shows

Back in April, we tackled the surprising behavior that is occurring in immigration court rooms across the nation.  As we discussed in the post, minors, some even barely old enough to talk, are facing deportation proceedings without assistance from legal counsel.  And while this is going on in the courtroom, another breakdown in the system appears to be occurring to minors who are detained by agents from the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Federal judge denies immigrant's class-action injunction in ICE raids

In February, this blog discussed a settlement of a lawsuit filed against immigration officials after Immigration and Customs Enforcement descended on a number of homes in Connecticut and conducted ICE raids. The government agreed to settle the civil federal litigation in that case for damages, and further agreed to halt deportation proceedings against a number of immigrants.

Miami valedictorian and her sister get reprieve from deportation

The North Miami High School valedictorian and her sister who were facing imminent deportation have been given a reprieve. This blog carried the story of the two sister's plight on Monday after an immigration judge ordered the two young women to leave the country.

Feds settle civil rights, ICE raid suit with New Haven residents targeted in immigration raids

The United States Government has agreed to fork over damages and halt deportation and removal proceedings against a group of New Haven residents snared in a 2007 residential immigration raid. The government says the settlement in the immigration-related federal court litigation is not an admission of liability for the warrantless immigration raids that occurred in a predominantly Latino neighborhood on the Eastern Seaboard.

Federal court requests ICE clarification in deportation cases

A federal appeals court has requested that the Obama administration clarify its policy on prosecutorial discretion in several individual deportation proceedings. The appellate rulings did not arise in cases here in Florida, but the unusual orders have caught the eye of many people interested in immigration issues nationwide.

Man lies to get deported in unusual alleged scheme

An unusual wrinkle in the nation's apparent obsession with deportations recently hit the news. This blog has reported that removal proceedings resulted in a record number of deportations last year. Many deportations involve undocumented immigrants who have been convicted of a crime. Typically, a person convicted of a crime is required to serve their prison sentence before being turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement for deportation.

President Obama's uncle to defend against deportation

The uncle of the President was pulled over on suspicion of DUI recently. During the traffic stop, the man reportedly told police he would like to call the white house to arrange bail. Then Immigration and Customs Enforcement stepped in and placed a hold on President Obama's uncle.
