POSSIBLE PATH TO CITIZENSHIP FOR LIBERIANS

CBS News reports that the 2020 National Defense Authorization Act, which is expected to be signed into law by President Trump this evening, includes a provision that would legalize the status of thousands of Liberian immigrants who are currently shielded from deportation through the Deferred Enforced Departure program, which the Trump administration has sought to end. The "Liberian Refugee Immigration Fairness" provision would allow certain Liberian immigrants to apply for green cards if they arrived in the United States before November 20, 2014, and have lived here continuously.

ACLARACIÓN DE SERVICIOS DE CIUDADANÍA E INMIGRACIÓN DE ESTADOS UNIDOS

USCIS aclaro el efecto de viajar fuera de los Estados Unidos sobre beneficiarios con (TPS) que están sujetos a procedimientos de deportación.

Los beneficiarios de TPS en procedimientos de deportación que viajan temporalmente al extranjero con la autorización del DHS siguen sujetos a dichos procedimientos de deportación. Si están bajo una orden final de deportación, el viaje no ejecuta ni cumple la orden. El extranjero en cuestión permanece sujeto a la orden de expulsión.

Por ley, al regresar a los Estados Unidos con la autorización de viaje de TPS, los beneficiarios de TPS conservan el mismo estatus migratorio que tenían antes de partir de los Estados Unidos.

US CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION SERVICES UPDATE

USCIS has clarified the effect of travel outside the United States (TPS) beneficiaries who are subject to removal proceedings.

TPS beneficiaries in removal proceedings who travel abroad temporarily with the authorization of DHS remain subject to those removal proceedings. If they are under a final order of removal, the travel does not execute or fulfill the order. The alien in question remains subject to the removal order.

By statute, upon return to the United States with TPS travel authorization, TPS beneficiaries retain the same immigration status they held before departing the United States.

A federal judge in Oregon has blocked the Trump administration from denying immigrants visas unless they can prove they will have health insurance.

The Court previously temporarily barred the administration from implementing the policy, and has now granted a nationwide preliminary injunction pending resolution of the case.

The policy would require that visa applicants verify they would be covered by approved health insurance within 30 days of entry into the US or could "pay for reasonably foreseeable medical costs" -- a potential obstacle for immigrants, especially if they do not have the financial means. Accepted health insurance includes employer-sponsored and family coverage plans, unsubsidized individual health plans, and short-term plans -- but not Medicaid or Affordable Care Act subsidies.

5 PROPUESTAS DEL GOBIERNO DE TRUMP PARA ENDURECER REGLAS DEL ASILO Y EL PERMISO DE TRABAJO

El gobierno de Donald Trump presentó esta semana una propuesta que haría más dificil conseguir los beneficios de asilo en Estados Unidos y el permiso de trabajo correspontiente. La medida afectaría a decenas de miles de inmigrantes.
Estas son algunas de las propuestas principales:

1 – AUMENTAR EL PLAZO DE ESPERA PARA SOLICITAR EL PERMISO DE TRABAJO A 365 DIAS EN VEZ DE LOS 150 ACTUALES.

2 - NEGAR LA SOLICITUD DEL PERMISO DE TRABAJO SI UN INMIGRANTE NO SE PRESENTA A UNA CITA REQUERIDA, INCLUSO SE PODRIA DESESTIMAR SU PETICION DE ASILO.

3 - NEGAR EL PERMISO DE TRABAJO A SOLICITANTES QUE NO INGRESARON A EEUU LEGALMENTE

4 – DECLARAR INELEGIBLES PARA UN PERMISO DE TRABAJO A QUIENES HAYAN SIDO ENCONTRADOS CULPABLES DE CUALQUIER DELITO FEDERAL O ESTATAL EN EEUU.

5 – CANCELAR AUTOMÁTICAMENTE EL PERMISO DE TRABAJO SI EL ASILO ES NEGADO. Si el caso es referido a un tribunal de inmigración, el permiso se mantendría vigente siempre que un juez no niegue la solicitud.

6 – ELIMINAR EL REQUISITO QUE TIENE USCIS DE ADJUDICAR UN PEDIDO DE PERMISO DE TRABAJO EN 30 DÍAS. El reglamento actual permite recibir el permiso de trabajo en un plazo de 30 días después de presentar su solicitud, después de los 150 días de espera. USCIS propone ahora eliminar este requisito.

Estas propuestas se encuentran en un período de revisión hasta el próximo 13 de enero. Pasada esa fecha se espera que USCIS publique una regla final al respecto.

Reuters: U.S. Judge Rules Suspicionless Searches of Travelers' Digital Devices Unconstitutional

Reuters reports that yesterday, a federal judge ruled that U.S. border agents need "reasonable suspicion" but not a warrant to search travelers' smartphones and laptops at airports and other U.S. ports of entry. The ruling sets a higher standard than the one CBP and ICE agents must apply to conduct routine searches of electronic devices under current policies. The number of electronic device searches at the border has ballooned during the Trump administration, rising from about 8,500 in FY2015 to more than 30,000 in FY2018.

EOIR has begun replacing interpreters at master calendar hearings with prerecorded video advisals. The videos have been rolled out in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Miami, and New York.

Many immigrants in the system are Spanish speakers, but it’s also common for Chinese, Creole, and several indigenous languages from Central America and around the world to be spoken in courtrooms.

Judges in courts that have made the change are required to play either a Spanish-dubbed or English-language video for immigrants who do not have attorneys representing them. The 20-minute video runs through a lengthy list of technical legal advisories. Videos in other languages are not yet available, but the Justice Department has plans to introduce them.

Former immigration Judge Jeffrey Chase, who reviewed the transcripts, also noted that the videos do not include information that would be important for immigrants, including that they have only one year to formally apply for asylum in the U.S.

“The information provided is misleading in a way that can lead to a noncitizen’s removal,” said Chase, who now volunteers for organizations that provide legal assistance to immigrants.

Laura Lynch, senior policy counsel for the American Immigration Lawyers Association, said the transcripts show that the videos use “scare tactics” instead of informing immigrants of their rights. The videos warn immigrants against filing frivolous asylum claims, but don’t explain what asylum is, she noted.
