President Donald Trump kicked off his Thursday with an unhinged attack on four separate Central American countries acting, he insisted, at the behest of...congressional Democrats. Oh, and he also threatened to declare martial law in order to entirely shut down the United State’s southern border with Mexico. All before…
One of the worst things about the neverending news cycle that is the Trump presidency is the rotating cast of dipshit lawyers from the ‘90s and early aughts who keep popping back into our lives and on our television screens for one reason or another. The latest addition is former Clinton White House counsel Lanny…
President Donald Trump has spent the first year and a half of his administration scaremongering about MS-13, calling gang members “animals,” railing against “alien minors” who come into the U.S. (“They’re not innocent,” he’s insisted), and generally using them as pawns to motivate racists to vote for Republicans in…
Today, Vice News reported the story of a 27-year-old Honduran man named Jose who was separated from his three-year-old son at the border in May. Unlike many of the immigrants who have had their families torn apart since the implementation of Trump’s “zero-tolerance” immigration policy, however, Jose did not come to…
Vice President Mike Pence met with Brazilian president Michel Temer in Brasília today. He said this:
The U.S. government is continuing to use defenseless children as bargaining chips in its all-out assault on undocumented migrants mostly from Central America who are seeking safety and a better life in this country.
The decision to end a vital humanitarian program for Haitians is quickly unraveling into a nightmare for the Trump administration. There’s now a steadily increasing amount of evidence that shows how politicized the decision appears to have been.
The Trump administration announced Friday that it is removing protections that allow tens of thousands of Hondurans to legally reside in America—thus opening them up to possible deportation.
President Donald Trump lashed out on Monday at a group of Central American asylum seekers traveling to the United States, calling their caravan “a disgrace” and claiming he’d instructed the Department of Homeland Security to bar them from entering the country. (“WALL,” he added.)
Organizers with the “refugee caravan” say they are less than a week away from reaching the U.S.-Mexico border—but only the “most vulnerable” members of the group are left.
The migrants traveling through Mexico on the now-famous “refugee caravan” have filmed a video featuring what the group referred to as a “general statement” about who they are, what they want, and why they are on the move.
An estimated 1,500 migrants from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador started a month-long journey on Sunday to the United States, where they intend to seek political asylum. Organizers say the “refugee caravan” includes many women, unaccompanied minors, and entire families who are migrating through Mexico any way…
We already knew that Donald Trump’s opinion of Mexicans and Central Americans is based entirely on racism and xenophobia. We’ve known this since at least June 2015, when then–candidate Trump made those awful comments about Mexicans being rapists, drug dealers, and criminals.
The Associated Press reported Wednesday afternoon that while the Trump administration is likely to extend the temporary protected status of about 7,000 Syrians by 18 months past the March 31 expiration date, it won’t let additional Syrian citizens apply for the program, anonymous sources told the news agency.
Christopher San Martin, the tiny boy pedaling the miniature red car, turned six years old in November. It probably didn’t make sense to him that his father didn’t attend his birthday party.
Given the Trump administration’s ongoing targeting of immigrants in the United States, it isn’t surprising that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson believes hundreds of thousands of Central Americans and Haitians should no longer be afforded Temporary Protected Status (TPS).
Hundreds of thousands of Haitians and Central Americans who fled violence and natural disasters and were welcomed into the U.S. through the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) program are now worried that the Trump administration will soon send them packing.
Ready or not, Donald Trump will soon become the 45th President of the United States, which means all the immigration rhetoric that he campaigned on for the past year and a half is about to have its first encounter with reality.
The case file on the murder of one of Honduras’ most prominent human-rights figures was stolen last week, marking the latest setback in an investigation that has been so constantly bungled that many suspect it's intentional.
