US Border Tightened Against Migrant Caravan

in USA by

US Border Tightened Against Migrant CaravanSecurity measures are being reinforced in the US as hundreds of Central American migrants looking to get asylum in the country reaches Tijuana, the Mexican border city. US military are erecting barricades and laying razor wire.

From among the thousands of migrating caravans making their way to enter the US through Mexico, around 400 migrants broke away. These 400 migrants have become the first batch of the caravan migrants to reach the Mexican border city of Tijuana. They arrived by bus on Tuesday.

The migrants said that they remain unafraid in their attempt to get asylum in the US despite President Trump administration’s aggressive move against them.

A migrant, Kenny Moran, said that it has been a tough month moving from Honduras. He said he left Honduras, with wife and daughter to escape from gang violence and poverty. He also said that the gangs practically make it impossible for you and your family to live. He made it clear that he does not know anyone in the US but knows there is work in Houston.

Human rights organizations revealed that larger groups would arrive in the coming days. An order signed by Trump last Friday has effectively brought suspension to granting of asylum to illegal immigrants. This will inevitably and significantly slow claims at the gate of entry. Nevertheless, immigrants are not deterred.

One of them said he prefers to be in detention in the United States than returning to a country where he knows he might be killed for his difference. Another said he’s willing to remain in Tijuana until the current hype goes down.

Reaction from the US

Jim Mattis, US Defense Secretary, said that he would visit the border today. Lanes at the Otay Mesa and San Ysidro crossings from Tijuana will be closed in order to give the Department of Defense enough room to mount barricades and put barbed wire in place according to US Customs and Border Protection.

Mauritanians in US Fear Being Sent Into Slavery

in USA by

Mauritanians fear being deported from the USThousands of Caravan migrants moving towards the U.S. declared to turn back, birthright citizenship to be suspended and greater immigration restrictions are only a few of the situations. It will not be a misplacement to say immigration was the bedrock of Republicans campaign in last week’s midterm elections. The latest wave is an outcry from the Mauritanians who fear being condemned to the same fate as Issa Sao.

Issa Sao, a 37-year-old man who spent 14 years of his life in the US, was sent back to Mauritania leaving behind his family (wife, daughter and stepson) in Ohio. In an attempt to avoid his deportation, he was moved from one detention centre to another for almost five months. Mauritania, a desert nation in West Africa, is said to still allow enslavement of men (black Mauritanians) like Sao. Sao had previously been jailed, tortured and expelled by Mauritania. On October 15, Sao’s lawyer said she got a distress call from him. According to her, Sao said they will be moved that same night. The next day, Sao was truly gone.

This is only a piece of Trump’s aggressive move against immigration. A lot of money has been spent as well as diplomatic priorities being redirected in this crackdown. He’s forcing deportation on resisting countries, especially in Africa and Asia.

Trump’s camp and supporters claim the government’s immigration move has yielded progress on an issue that is causing harm to the US. In contrary opposition say the government’s approach could cause damage between the US and its allies.

The Outcry

Mauritanians are alarmed at the way things are going. The ICE revealed that 22 Mauritanians are in custody and could be returned soon. This leaves them (black Mauritanians) with the fear of being sent back to slavery.

Sao’s attorney said the situation is beyond just immigration, it is U.S. handing people over to persecutors.

Rules Unveiled for Asylum Seekers in the US

in USA by

Rules Unveiled for Asylum Seekers in the USOn Thursday, President Donald Trump unveiled yet another aggressive move regarding immigration policy. This is coming just two days after the country’s midterm election in which the Republicans lost its majority power to the Democrats despite the much effort by Mr Trump to get votes via the immigration stance. Asylum seekers who break border laws will be approached differently as new rules were unveiled by the government. Henceforth, any illegal immigrants that cross the country’s border will have their eligibility to seek asylum in the US taken from them according to the Justice Department and Homeland Security. Senior admin officials affirmed that the rule would not affect people who had previously gained access to the US through such means.

The new rules will not be operational until applied in a presidential proclamation by the president. Officials say it can be done today Friday, 9th November 2018. This is one of the first moves of the newly appointed Attorney General, Matthew Whitaker. In a joint statement with Kirstjen Nielsen, Homeland Security Secretary, Mr Whitaker said the tremendous burden is placed on the country’s resources as a result of an overwhelming number of meritless asylum claims received by the asylum system. These aliens hinder the US from adequately granting asylum to people who merit it, he said. Mr. Whitaker made it clear that what they are doing is according to the authority granted by Congress to take immediate actions on such people (aliens) who do not regard the government’s stance regarding seeking asylum in the US.

Administration to be Sued

As far as the latest immigration restriction is concerned, the government will maintain its stand despite expecting court cases. According to senior officials, the government and its relevant agencies expect the US Supreme Court to succeed in upholding the plan given they have 5-4 Conservative majority.

The latest addition to the high court, Brett Kavanaugh, will work with the four other conservative justices as reported by NBC news.

It is yet another time the Trump government will sidestep Congress in order to unilaterally shift immigration policy in the nation.

Latest US Immigration Move Tagged Political Opportunism

Latest US Immigration Move Tagged Political Opportunism

800 US troops are moving to the Texas border as well as 5, 200 troops expected to be deployed to the south-west region by the end of the week according to the head of US northern command, General Terrence O’Shaughnessy. The government’s is responsible for the thousands of Central American migrants who are presently in southern Mexico and are heading north. They are said to include families, children and elderly people.

US President Trump, en-route winning the presidential election in 2016, fueled fear and anger concerning illegal immigration. His latest move is coming just days before the midterm elections. He is leveraging on the caravan situation in his campaign for next week’s midterm polls with the expectation of firing up his core support. In a tweet on Monday, he ordered the migrant caravan to go back as they won’t be received into the US except through legal process. He also stated that the Military is waiting for them at the border as their movement is seen as an invasion of the country.

Critics Response

This latest move has been condemned as political opportunism by the American Civil Liberties Union, a human rights organization.

Policy counsel, Shaw Drake said the military is being forced into furthering the president’s anti-immigrant agenda of division and fear. He continued to say it is another aggressive move by Trump to trump immigrant families including children seeking the country’s protection. He concluded by saying military personnel are not permitted by the law to be involved in immigration enforcement, and nothing justifies this move.

Mexico is equally tightening the security on the country’s southern border. Migrants usually use rafts to make their way across the Suchiate River on the southern border. It is not known if the US has a hand in Mexico’s move, but their move is obviously in favour of the anti-immigrant agenda by the Trump government.

US Investor visa is Giving a Path to Foreign Students to Get Green Card

in USA by

International Students Can Use US Investor Visa to Gain Green CardA fewer known immigration visa allows foreign students a way to U.S. colleges and universities — and a green card — but the cost is affordable for only fewer people.

An Immigrant Investor Visa Program or EB-5 does not limit where or how many students manage off-campus and enables them to live in the nation later graduation, both perks not possible to holders of F-1 student visa, as per EB-5 Daily, a website that gets news concerning the EB-5 program. But in correspondence for fewer limitations, EB-5s have a daunting price tag — candidates should invest minimum $500,000.

Many wealthy foreign students come to the U.S., and plenty of them are very motivated,” stated Ishaan Khanna, a current college graduate, and holder of EB-5 visa.

A way to Immigration

Khanna arrived in the U.S. from India on an F-1 student visa to read at the University of Loyola Marymount in Los Angeles. As graduation progressed, he began looking for paths to stay and work in the U.S.

If I needed to assist my career, being in the U.S., notably close to Silicon Valley, was a no-brainer, told Khanna, who was seeing for jobs in the sector of technology. He began studying EB-5 visas through his senior year.

Critics Analysis of this EB-5 Path

Sometimes the money is robbed, as per some cases of cour. The documentation gives 287 regional centers whose agreement with the government of U.S. has been discontinued for either losing to present necessary information to USCIS or for no lasting serving the objective of advancing economic growth. In the current month, there were 1,382 sanctioned regional centers.

Where to invest?

Although parents typically provide money, students seldom choose where to invest. That is apparently the most critical part of the EB-5 process for several investors, told Yale-Loehr he is working as immigration law professor.
