Groups demand end to info-sharing on asylum-seeking children

Groups demand end to info on asylum seeking children

Earlier this year, the federal agency tasked with caring for asylum-seeking children separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexican border officially took on a new, little heralded role: helping to deport relatives of the young migrants.

In a Wednesday letter to the heads of the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Homeland Security, 112 civil-liberties and immigrant-rights groups, child-welfare advocates and privacy activists are crying foul, demanding an immediate halt to what they call an illegal practice.

Activists, Politicians React With Horror At Border Scenes Of Tear-Gassed Children

Children gassed at borderChildren screamed and coughed amid the gas, The Associated Press reported. The wind carried the aerosol chemicals toward people hundreds of feet away who were not attempting to enter the U.S., the wire service noted. One woman collapsed unconscious amid the chaos, and two babies sobbed with tears running down their faces from the gas, Reuters reported.

A statement from the Customs and Border Patrol agency said that officers responded with tear gas as migrants threw “projectiles,” which hit “several agents.”

The use of force was sharply criticized.

Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) called on people “uncomfortable with spraying tear gas on children” to join the “coalition of the moral and the sane” to “get our country back.”

TVNL Comment:  "Uncomfortable"?  Not "outraged" or "horrified?"   Trump has permitted the use of lethal force.  This is just the beginning.

Court blocks Trump immigration ban

A federal court in San Francisco has temporarily blocked the Trump administration's new asylum ban, saying it violates existing law and would cause irreparable harm to immigrants.

Earlier this month, President Trump issued a proclamation saying anyone crossing the U.S. southern border without doing so through an official port would be ineligible for asylum.

Tijuana protesters chant 'Out!' at migrants camped in city

Tiajuana prrotestersHundreds of Tijuana residents congregated around a monument in an affluent section of the city south of California on Sunday to protest the thousands of Central American migrants who have arrived via caravan in hopes of a new life in the U.S.

Tensions have built as nearly 3,000 migrants from the caravan poured into Tijuana in recent days after more than a month on the road, and with many more months ahead of them while they seek asylum. The federal government estimates the number of migrants could soon swell to 10,000.

GOP lawmakers protest LGBT protections in new NAFTA deal

GOP lawmakers protest LGBT protections in NAFTA pact

A group of 38 GOP lawmakers is protesting the inclusion of protections for LGBT workers in the newly negotiated U.S. trade proposal with Mexico and Canada.

The House GOP members are calling on Trump to drop language protecting workers from "discrimination on the basis of sex, including sexual orientation and gender identity" from the new North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) deal, as first highlighted by Politico.

“A trade agreement is no place for the adoption of social policy,” the lawmakers wrote in a Nov. 16 letter. “It is especially inappropriate and insulting to our sovereignty to needlessly submit to social policies which the United States Congress has so far explicitly refused to accept.”

Immigrants Following Trump’s Asylum Order Turned Back by Border Patrol

Immigrants stopped at correct border entryHuddled in blankets on a crisp morning last Tuesday, Gerson Valeriano and Yossira Gil were first in line on the Paso Del Norte bridge from Mexico to apply for asylum in the United States. It was their eighth day waiting with more than 100 migrants for Border Patrol to let them pass an invisible line just five feet away to apply for asylum.

The Trump administration wants all migrants and refugees to apply for asylum this way thanks to an executive order issued Friday that will make migrants who illegally cross at places other than ports of entry like Paso Del Norte ineligible for asylum. The administration would ram more people into bottlenecks like Paso Del Norte without providing more capacity to process aslyum-seekers, immigrant advocates and attorneys say.
