Rapid deportation of immigrants. Joe Biden’s government seeks for a way to stop immigrants from crossing by making it easier to apply rapid deportation when they are crossing the border, according to a publication made by the news portal of Telemundo and the website of DHS.
For months, the arrival of illegal immigrants to the United States has registered a considerable increase, so much so that the Joe Biden government has received endless criticism because he is considered incapable of stopping this phenomenon.
ONLY TO “CERTAIN FAMILIES”
In addition, the way in which immigrants cross minors and abandon them to their fate without the company of an adult has been evidenced, which generates more controversy. This announced measure seeks to greatly reduce border crossing.
Federal authorities, specifically the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), have reported that the goal is to apply this measure only to “certain families” that it cannot alienate when making the title 42 appeal.
Rapid expulsion of immigrants: FIRMEZA
According to the DHS website, they literally state that “As of today, certain family units that cannot be expelled under Title 42 will be placed in an expedited deportation process. Expedited removal provides a legal and more expedited procedure to eliminate those family units that do not have a basis under US law to be in the United States. ”
“Attempting to cross into the United States between ports of entry, or circumventing inspection at ports of entry, is the wrong way to come to the United States, acts that are dangerous and can have long-term immigration consequences for people who They try, ”they explained.
WITHOUT SPECIFYING CASES
The statement does not indicate which families, how or under what conditions this system will be applied to them, however, it is stated that they will not be accepted in the immigration form, on the contrary they will be left behind in a rapid expulsion process.
The model gives the undocumented persons the opportunity to have a credible fear test (they must prove that they can request asylum in the United States with certain requirements, such as facing persecution in their countries). Filed Under: Rapid Removal of Immigrants
Rapid expulsion of immigrants: PROCESS
They would have to face this process in front of an immigration agent, who must listen and analyze each of the reasons given by the immigrant, however, this does not guarantee their immediate authorization, since if the agent considers that they do not approve it, they will be deported. without the right to go before a judge.
The Secretary of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, recently commented that the United States faces the season with the highest income of undocumented immigrants in the last 20 years, hence the measure that will be applied in the next few days.
Rapid expulsion of immigrants: CRITICS
But the criticism again did not wait and it was precisely the immigration lawyer Camille J. Markler, executive director of the organization Collaborative Response of Immigrant Defenders (Immigrant ARC), who launched the first protest through Twitter.
“The expedited removal ‘procedure’ involves sitting across a desk from a government agent signing a deportation order. There is no possibility of seeing a judge, consulting with legal counsel (much less an attorney), or understanding the process in any other way. This is not due process ”.
LOOKING FOR SECURE IMMIGRATION SYSTEM
The DHS statement indicates that the authorities’ objective is that “The Biden-Harris Administration is working to build a safe, orderly, and humane immigration system, and the Department of Homeland Security continues to take various steps to improve legal processing in the ports of entry and reforms to strengthen the asylum system ”.
This given the evident increase in the number of illegal immigrants crossing into the United States through various parts of the border, which has left unseen figures and even videos of how they manage to pass through land and water. Filed Under: Rapid Removal of Immigrants
Rapid expulsion of immigrants: THERE IS HOPE
Just a few months ago, Lucio Pérez left the western Massachusetts church where he had lived for more than three years to avoid deportation. The immigration authorities granted in March a temporary suspension of his expulsion process while the Guatemalan, 40, asks that his case be reconsidered.
Now Pérez hopes that a recent Supreme Court ruling will help him clear that last hurdle and get official permission to stay in the country he has called home for more than two decades.
“I AM VERY OPTIMISTIC”
“Right now I feel very optimistic that everything is on the right track,” he said recently from his home in Springfield, Massachusetts. “I no longer have that fear of deportation. Now I feel safer ”. Pérez is one of dozens of immigrants who are confident that their deportation will be canceled because court appointments were not properly notified.
The Supreme Court concluded in April in the case Niz-Chavez v. Garland that the federal government must provide in a single notification all the required information to immigrants facing removal proceedings. Filed Under: Rapid Removal of Immigrants
For years, the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has informed immigrants of their deportation proceedings in two parts: an initial notice to appear in court and subsequent notifications with the date, time and place of the hearing.
But Judge Neil Gorsuch, in his majority opinion, criticized that strategy of dividing the information and affirmed that it is not protected by federal laws. The key, he argued, is in the shortest word: a 1996 immigration law indicates that the government must serve “one” notice for the subpoena, implying that Congress intended that people at risk of deportation receive a single document.

“To some extent, today’s dispute may seem semantic, focused on a single word, and a small one in addition,” said Gorsuch, a conservative judge appointed by former Republican President Donald Trump. “But words are the way the law limits power.” Activists and immigration lawyers, who had complained for years about the notification process, say the ruling has implications in dozens of cases.
“It’s a bombshell,” said Jeremy McKinney, a North Carolina attorney who is president-elect of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. “It is the second time in less than three years that the court has had to remind the Government that a summons to appear has to summon a person to appear at a time and place.” With information from AP Filed Under: Rapid Removal of Immigrants
