Expanding Protection for Illegal Immigrants

2017-08-14T14:42:43+00:00

Expanding protection for illegal immigrants seems to be the response from Los Angeles towards Donald Trumps aggressive immigration stance. Los Angeles might be well known for the bright California sun and the star-studded Hollywood hills, but it also has a well-deserved reputation as one of America’s biggest “sanctuary” cities.  Local authorities do not necessarily report to and/or hold people for Federal Immigration Agencies such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and they will not do the Federal government’s job by arresting and holding undocumented immigrants on the Federal government’s behalf. LA is certainly not playing an easy game: the Trump Administration [...]

2017-02-14T21:39:46+00:00

Beware . . . US Customs and Border Protection Can Take Your Cell Phones at the Airport by: H. Glenn Fogle, Jr. One of the most shocking news stories this week is of a NASA scientist, who is a natural born United States citizen but happens to be of South Asian descent, who was stopped at Houston's George Bush Intercontinental Airport along with refugees and travelers from the seven Muslim countries immediately following the Trump travel ban and asked to unlock his mobile phone by US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents. This was reported by CNN yesterday February 13, 2017. [...]

What About Trump’s Wall?

2017-02-10T21:45:43+00:00

What About Trump's Wall? By H. Glenn Fogle, Jr., Esq. Donald Trump as the new president, during his first week in office signed an Executive Order supposedly putting into motion the building of his famous “wall” on the US Mexican border. Earlier this week he boasted again that he was going to build his “wall” and he was “not kidding.” Aside from the fact that it is practically impossible to build a continuous wall along the entire terrain of the US border with Mexico, it is going to do little if anything to stop the flow of illegal drugs and/or immigrants into [...]

Trump’s Executive Order Debacle

Trump's Executive Order Debacle By H. 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 [...]

What about the Dreamers?

2016-12-17T03:58:58+00:00

WHAT ABOUT THE DREAMERS? By: H. Glenn Fogle, Jr., Esq. After the DREAM Act, which was designed to assist children who were brought by their parents to the United States either without inspection or no longer in status, was defeated in the Senate in late 2010 and early 2011, President Obama issued an executive order known as DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), designed to assist those individuals who would have benefited from the DREAM Act. DACA placed a group of people who were brought to United States as children and were attending or had graduated from high school in a [...]

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, [...]
