A single mother with two children, she set roots in the Miami suburbs, finding work as a secretary, dedicating herself to her church and, earlier this year, welcoming her first grandchild.She took the oath of citizenship in 2007, a step she felt would give her secure status in her adopted homeland. But hers, it turns out, is not a feel-good immigrant story: The Justice Department has moved to revoke Borgoño’s citizenship, an action that could eventually force her to return to Peru. Advertisement Federal prosecutors in May filed a rare denaturalization case against Borgoño, 64, accusing her of committing fraud when she applied for citizenship and failed to disclose that she had taken part in a crime several years … [Read more...] about Trump immigration crackdown extends to new citizens

Patricia Aragon told the U.S. asylum officer at her recent case assessment that she was fleeing her native Honduras because she had been robbed and raped by a gang member who threatened to kill her and her 9-year-old daughter if she went to the police. Until recently, the 41-year-old seamstress from San Pedro Sula would have had a good chance of clearing that first hurdle in the asylum process due to a "credible fear" for her safety, but she didn't. The officer said the Honduran government wasn't to blame for what happened to Aragon and recommended that she not get asylum, meaning she'll likely be sent home. "The U.S. has always been characterized as a humanitarian country," Aragon said through tears at Port Isabel, a remote immigration detention center tucked among livestock and grapefruit groves near Los Fresnos, a town about 15 miles (25kilometers) from the Mexico border. "My experience has been very difficult." As part of the Trump administration's broader crackdown on immigration, … [Read more...] about ‘Credible Fear’ for US Asylum Harder to Prove Under Trump
Last month, as parents arrested at the U.S.-Mexico border were separated from their children and transferred to detention centers more than a thousand miles away in the Pacific Northwest, as a father of two languished in federal custody after delivering a pizza to a military base in Brooklyn, and as Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents lured undocumented workers in Ohio into a break room with doughnuts before detaining them, Thomas Homan, the acting director of ICE, was speaking at the National Press Club in Washington, DC, at an event hosted by the Center for Immigration Studies. “A lot of people want to attack ICE. I see it every day. They want to call ICE racists, they want to call us Nazis,” he said. However: “We’re simply enforcing the laws on the books.” Homan, who will step down next month, came out of his brief retirement early last year to run ICE at President Trump’s request. A 35-year veteran of law enforcement whose father was also … [Read more...] about The Eugenicist Doctor and the Vast Fortune Behind Trump’s Immigration Regime

Washington, D.C.—Members of the migrant caravan that spurred President Trump’s decision to deploy the National Guard are now arriving at various U.S.-Mexico border cities. Those who intend to apply for asylum have a challenging process ahead of them. Here are important facts—compiled from factsheets on immigration and asylum put together by human rights advocacy group the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA)—about what will most likely happen to the members of the migrant caravan now at the U.S.-Mexico border: 1) Crossing the border and deliberately seeking out authorities to request asylum is not illegal. Applying for asylum is a human right guaranteed in U.S. immigration law and international law. Under those same laws, asylum seekers are not required to request asylum in countries that are closest to their place of origin, or the first “safe country” that they reach. 2) Petitioning for asylum in the United States is … [Read more...] about What Awaits the Migrant Caravan in the United States?
