Interior immigration detentions appear to be on the rise

If there's one topic that is likely to arouse contentious debate in both political and private circles, immigration may be it. If New Jersey residents were asked to participate in a survey regarding personal or political views on immigration and, in particular, immigration detentions, results would no doubt vary. Some might say reform and advocacy is greatly needed for immigrants in this state and throughout the nation and others would probably call for more stringent regulation and increased deportations.

ICE says immigration situation has nothing to do with retaliation

Many people in New Jersey and throughout the nation have been following a news story regarding a 35-year-old immigrant. The immigration situation taking place in another state involves an already deported immigrant, a detained immigrant and assertions that ICE is retaliating against the latter because he talked to the press about the former. The governor of the state where the man lives now claims he has thoroughly investigated the matter and is convinced no retaliation has taken place.

Hundreds turn out to oppose proposed immigration detention center

An 83-year-old man who grew up on a farm west of New Jersey joined hundreds of others at a recent town meeting to speak his opposition toward a proposed project in the area. Officials say a plan is in the works to construct a new immigration detention facility on the very farmland where the elderly gentleman spent his childhood. The man said professional baseball player, Lou Criger, who caught for Hall of Fame pitcher, Cy Young, also lived on the land for a time.

Woman worried about immigration and naturalization issues

In New Jersey and many other states throughout the nation, there are countless immigrants who obtained temporary protected legal status in 2012 when the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program began. Many of these young adults have lived in the United States most of their lives and are at various points along their immigration and naturalization journeys. Some, like one woman in another state who recently told her story, are currently worried that the recent ending of DACA has made them deportable.

Heated immigration situation remains ongoing in another state

Many New Jersey readers may be familiar with the story of a young immigrant in another state who was being held in detention on suspicion of human smuggling activity. There were never any criminal charges filed against the 20-year-old, who happens to be a leg amputee. His story made news headlines when he told of immigration officials (who apparently did not know he understood English) mocking his disability. In a turn of events in this immigration law case, the man's release from detention was recently scheduled.

Game-changer up ahead for immigration and naturalization process

New Jersey is home to many immigrants. Some live here with permanent residency statuses, some with temporary visas and others who were undocumented when they entered the country. The latest news suggests there are major changes in the works for the immigration and naturalization process that have immigrant advocates on edge. They say the proposed changes may place the privacy of many people at risk.

Another heated immigration dispute re a mother's DACA status

One can only imagine the emotional turmoil of two children, ages 5 and 11 months, at suddenly being separated from their mother. That's exactly what has happened, however, in a controversial immigration situation that has taken place in another state. The children's mother, age 22, is about to be deported from the United States even though those advocating on her behalf say her legal status is protected through the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Act.

Immigration and naturalization changes led to man's deportation

Many of the nation's estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants live in New Jersey. Some are undoubtedly worried (as others throughout the nation are) about recent crackdowns regarding immigration and naturalization policies that appear to target undocumented immigrants. In fact, a family who has been living in this state for a long time recently suffered great sorrow when the husband/father was forced to say goodbye as he was deported to Guatemala.

Study: New Jersey ranks among top ten states for deportations

Without question, immigration has emerged as one of the most controversial and pressing issues since the Trump administration assumed control of the executive branch back in January. Indeed, from the proposed travel ban to the more recent efforts to reform the H-1B visa system, many questions remain as to what course will be plotted by the White House in this area over the next four years.
