Trump Administration Proposes Further Impediments to Judicial Review – Fees Nearly 900% of the Current Rate

2019-09-18T18:40:55+00:00

Written By: Mary-Lynn Tedesco At present, fees for appellate review of decisions by Immigration Judges, as well as for motions to reopen removal orders, is set at $110. There is no fee currently to file a motion to reconsider with an immigration judge. This is a manageable fee for individuals who seek to review erroneous decisions by immigration judges. And with the Trump administration’s attacks on long-standing asylum laws and policies, this has been an important aspect of the judicial process – and access to justice, generally. However, a draft Department of Justice regulation that has been obtained by BuzzFeed News [...]

Trump Administration Promotes Hardline Judges To Fill Board of Immigration Appeals

2019-08-30T13:09:50+00:00

The Trump administration is continuing to use its power over the Immigration Court system to make legal immigration processes for immigrants more difficult. The latest action comes as six Judges with a questionable history of handling asylum cases have been promoted to the Board of Immigration Appeals, which reviews all Immigration Judge decisions. This latest move, as reported by Noah Lanard with the Mother Jones news outlet, appears to be part of a intensifying effort to reshape Immigration Court system. This is particularly alarming as the six newly promoted judges have an asylum approval rate far less than the average Immigration [...]

Birthright Citizenship Debate: Much Ado About Nothing?

2018-11-02T23:16:46+00:00

By: Mary-Lynn Tedesco Since Axios on HBO teased an interview with President Trump about his opinions on birthright citizenship and his [mistaken] belief that those born on U.S. soil could have their citizenship stripped by an executive order alone, many have become concerned about their status in the United States. Children of the undocumented who have grown up never worrying about their livelihoods in the U.S. are now, justifiably, concerned. However, the real question is: Does the President really know what he is talking about? Or are these merely the ramblings of an uninformed man spouting off his own “fake news”? As [...]

FAMILY UNIFICATION IS NOT CHAIN MIGRATION

2018-03-30T14:52:06+00:00

FAMILY UNIFICATION IS NOT CHAIN MIGRATION By: Louise Mucino “THE OPINIONS EXPRESSED IN THE FOLLOWING COMMENTARY ARE SOLELY THOSE OF THE AUTHOR AND DO NOT PURPORT TO BE THOSE OF THE FOGLE LAW FIRM.” Recently, certain prominent officials in the public eye made some statements to support the idea of restricting Family-based immigration (along with the visa lottery). This official's statement was somewhere along the line of saying that a single immigrant can bring in “unlimited” numbers of family, to include distant relatives. It is now being referred to as chain migration, as though a single person could bring a large [...]
