Immigration Court System Overwhelmed

2017-08-04T22:00:05+00:00

President Donald Trump already stressed his position on immigration even earlier on during his presidential campaign. Following his election, he stayed true to his pledge and initiated one of the heaviest crackdowns on undocumented immigration in current US history, causing panic among many minority communities across the United States. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers set out to pursue and track down many undocumented aliens as they could, arresting large numbers of people—so much so that the entire court system is currently struggling to handle the massive influx of cases. Ever since President Trump signed his executive order on immigration enforcement, [...]

Glenn Fogle, Jr. Esq., Principal Member of the Fogle Law Firm, LLC To start with, the United States is bound by the UN Refugee Convention (an international treaty on refugees) which has been ratified by the Senate in accord with the U.S. Constitution as the “supreme law of the land,” as well as our asylum laws (with some limited exceptions), not to send anyone back to their county where they will be persecuted on account of race, religion, nationality, membership in a particular social group or political opinion.  The protection of refugees and those fleeing [...]

The End of NSEERS

2017-01-09T15:17:21+00:00

The End of NSEERS By H. Glenn Fogle, Jr, Esq. The week before Christmas, President Obama ordered the Department of Homeland Security to finally terminate the shuttered “Muslim” registration program known as the National Security Entry-Exit Registration System (NSEERS).  Though not “specifically” directed at Muslims (as that would clearly be unconstitutional), NSEERS required males over 16 years of age from 25 predominantly Muslim countries (excepting North Korea) to register with the government—whether they were already here or upon entry.  The program, developed in 2002 was basically abandoned at the end of 2003, although it was not officially suspended until 2011, due [...]

Signals on Immigration from Trump Administration

2016-11-23T06:42:59+00:00

Signals on Immigration from Trump Administration By H. Glenn Fogle, Jr., Esq., November 22, 2016 Based on those either nominated for cabinet positions or advising the President-Elect on immigration, America looks like it is returning to the post-911 days of paranoia and scapegoating of immigrants—particularly of the Muslim faith. It appears that Trump advisor, Kris Kobach, the Kansas Secretary of State, and author and proponent of many State anti-immigrant laws around the country, which have been declared unconstitutional in part or whole, is promoting his agenda in the ear of the President-Elect of the United States [PEOTUS].  He was seen Monday, [...]
