Jeff Sessions Attempting to Tap Down Immigration Judges

In the latest tightening of the screws to the Immigration courts, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has constrained the discretion of  Immigration Judges in showing leniency toward detainees, and restricting the ability of asylum detainees to be released. Essentially, Jeff Sessions has ruled that Immigration Judges are not allowed to use their discretion to terminate or dismiss cases. Such decisions would have to be made by the US Department of Homeland security. Although this may be a more hardline approach, it will surely add to the already backlogged court dockets and slow the flow of immigration cases through the system.  

Caution for Self-Filers with the USCIS - Make a Mistake, Lose your Filing Fees.

If you are deciding to file any USCIS petitions on your own, a word of warning. If you make a mistake , you may lose your filing fees. If you didnt read in the news last July, the USCIS released a policy memorandum that significantly affects the decision making ability of the USCIS and the potential affects on the applicant. According to this new policy, previous applications that had incorrect information or lack of required documentation were routinely issued a RFE (Request for Evidence) or a NOID (Notice of Intent to Deny). Applicants were routinely given 60-90 days to provide the necessary information or documentation before an application would be denied. Under the new policy, the adjudicators can now summarily deny an application if the required documentation or information is missing without first issuing an RFE or NOID. The effect is that innocent filers risk losing all of their filing fees for a single error and may also be faced with placement in removal proceedings.

Reunification of Separated families

According to ICE, and the Department of Homeland Security, all eligible reunification of parents and their children have been achieved. I am unsure of this assertion, but it will require an investigation by an outside governmental organization to confirm this assertion. Although the reunification of  "eligible" family members, the consequences of the Trump zero policy will have long term ramifications. First and foremost will be the traumatizing psychological impact on the young children that have been separated from their parents. There are even children who are here in the US despite their parent already being deported and back in their home country. What solution is the government going to implement to address these situations?? Currently, there is none. It is my  hopes that the reunification be completed for all families and not those deemed "eligible". each passing day of a child without their parents will only contribute to their fear and future resentmen
