    Default US could ‘expeditiously’ deport over 30,000 Dominicans

    US could ‘expeditiously’ deport over 30,000 Dominicans



    Santo Domingo.- More than 30,000 Dominicans qualify for the US Government-ordered “accelerated deportation” starting September 1, in which foreigners in violation of the law can be sent to their countries if the Office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has evidence of any violation.

    If the person is two or more years living undocumented, whether a student or a tourist, ICE can determine if that foreigner is “removed” without going before a judge, according to migration expert Roque Leonel Rodríguez. He said the measure was authorized by the Washington on July 24 of this year.

    He stressed that ICE’s main interest with the Expedited Deportation program (Expedited Removal), is to deport people who have criminal records and violators of legal stay, which although tourists are authorized six months, there is currently an ordinance of do not renew their visa or cancel it at the airport to anyone who lasts more than two months in the United States, “therefore I recommend that the person is not to last longer than 21 days.”

    Not a well researched news article at all...


    The real stuff:


    In late July, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) published a new rule in the Federal Register that expands the designation of expedited removal. Under that rule, immigrants in the country unlawfully for fewer than 2 years and who are living anywhere in the country’s interior can be fast-tracked through deportation proceedings, even if that means there’s not enough time to make their case before an immigration judge. Previous to the July 23 change, only undocumented immigrants who were caught 100 miles from the border and within two weeks of arriving qualified for expedited removal.

    As far as staying for 2 months or more when stamped for a 6 months stay, is also false.

    The real fact is that those that stay for long periods or to the max of the provided stay on REPEATED visits, are the ones being questioned by custom officials. If their answers are not based on a acceptable basis, their tourist visas are revoked.

    This is not a Dominican aimed policy, but a general applied new policy to deter those making things harder for others.

    The article is full of half truths and some really terrible non-senses.

    It makes one wonder why if they have stayed illegally for over 2 years why this would not apply. I suppose they have to face court proceedings before deportation for some technicality of the law? They have to prove they were in the US for more than 2 years.

    Any person (non-citizen/resident/legal) that resides for a period longer than 2 years is covered under a court-issued order, which makes clear that they MUST be presented before a judge and their case be presented on a hearing prior to executing a removal/deportation from US territory.

    They must provide evidence of that over 2 years residency to the authorities to avoid being fast tracked without a hearing.

    The ruling has precedence from another immigration case.

    The only difference is that some get a hearing and a timely deportation, whilst others are sent back swiftly.

    Kind of like our DR system. Those caught by Cesfront having just arrived recently are quickly sent over to Haiti sans any mumbo jumbo. Others are reviewed by assigned officials and their removal follows paperwork procedures.

    30,000 amounts to what?

    0.3% nationally?

    1.7% of Dominicans in the USA?

    I say if it wasn’t for the media, most people in the DR would never notice a change if all 30,000 were deported. So sure, go ahead and deport them.

    I suspect reality is that there are much more than 30,000, but then that could be the ones with more than 2 years who need a hearing before deportation. I know for a fact that the sanctuary cities are "working well".

    One of the signature policies of the current administration is to both cut and modify immigration policies into the USA... Of most interest to Dominicans would be the proposed alterations to the "chain migration"- or "family unification" visas-


    think tanks on the subject --
    "...We found that over this 35-year period chain migration has always been a major share of total immigration, and averages out
    to about 60 percent of total immigration. Out of a total of nearly 33 million immigrants admitted between 1981 and 2016,
    more than 20 million were chain migration immigrants (61 percent). ..." https://cis.org/sites/default/files/...igration_1.pdf

    "...Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) introduced legislation that would end Chain Migration based on the Jordan Commission's recommendations – the Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment (RAISE) Act (S. 354). The bill would reduce legal immigration by up to 50% by ending future chain migration and the diversity visa lottery...."
    https://www.numbersusa.com/solutions...hain-migration

    "...Nearly all immigrants from the Dominican Republic who obtain lawful permanent residence in the United States (also known as getting a green card) do so through family reunification, while very few come through employment or other channels. Dominican immigrants are more likely than the overall foreign-born population in the United States to live in poverty and be Limited English Proficient (LEP) and are less likely to have a college degree and to be uninsured. Compared to the total immigrant population, a greater share of Dominicans are naturalized U.S. citizens...." https://www.migrationpolicy.org/arti...-united-states
