Starting today, and gradually rolling out over the next little bit, all incoming passengers to the US will be hit with further security screening, in the form of closer examination of their electrical devices and a questionnaire or interview with an airline employee. We are now expected to arrive at the airport three hours earlier to allow for this added security screening, which seems to serve no other purpose than to allow Trump to spread fear. (Really, where is the evidence that existing screening isn't good enough?) This applies to US citizens and foreign nationals alike and is supposed to capture each and every person entering the US by plane.

Tourism has already been hit hard by Trump and his various travel bans. This is only going to make it worse. Why would anyone visit the US for a holiday when they could go somewhere else and NOT be treated like a criminal? On a personal level Trump's already cost Hawaii several thousand dollars of tourist dollars from my family (my parents and sister were going to fly across to Hawaii and spend a week with us, too, and they didn't; so that's 3 hotel rooms for 7 days, 21 meals for 7 people, shopping, attractions, etc. that didn't happen) and we as a family have decided to not go to the US until Trump is out of office and some sanity is restored to Customs and Immigration, because it's just not worth the hassle. There are plenty of other places we can go. For a person who claims to have made his fortune through hotels, he is really quite stupid and self-sabotaging.

CNN: 9th Circuit green-lights some Trump administration travel ban restrictions:
A federal appeals court handed the Trump administration a partial victory Monday, granting its emergency request to allow parts of its latest travel ban to go into effect while the appeal is pending.

A three-judge panel -- all appointed by former President Bill Clinton -- on the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals decided Monday to keep the lower court's order in place, freezing the ban, for foreign nationals who have a "close familial relationship" with a person in the United States, but granted the Trump administration's request to allow it to go into effect for everyone else.

The 9th Circuit panel is set to hear oral arguments on the case on December 6.
The 9th's order, which essentially tracks SCOTUS' prior order.

Reuters
U.S. Appeals Courts to Consider Legality of Trump's Latest Travel Ban

(Reuters) - Federal appeals courts in the states of Washington and Virginia are set to hear arguments this week on the legality of President Donald Trump's most recent travel ban, which sharply limits visitors and immigrants from eight countries, six of them Muslim-majority.

Challengers, including the state of Hawaii and immigrant advocacy organizations, have argued the ban is discriminatory and violates the U.S. Constitution. The Trump administration says it is necessary to protect the United States from terrorist attacks.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which is based in San Francisco, will hold a hearing in Seattle, Washington on Dec. 6 and the Richmond, Virginia-based 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has its hearing on Dec. 8.

Soon after taking office in January, Trump signed an order temporarily barring all refugees and visitors from seven predominately Muslim countries. The decision led to chaos at airports and numerous legal challenges and was eventually replaced by the administration with a second, somewhat narrower order.

When the second ban expired in September, Trump replaced it with a presidential proclamation indefinitely restricting travel from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad, North Korea and barring certain government officials from Venezuela.

Reuters: U.S. top court lets Trump's latest travel ban go into full effect:
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday handed a victory to President Donald Trump by allowing his latest travel ban targeting people from six Muslim-majority countries to go into full effect even as legal challenges continue in lower courts.

The court, with two of the nine justices dissenting,[*] granted his administration’s request to lift two injunctions imposed by lower courts that had partially blocked the ban, which is the third version of a contentious policy that Trump first sought to implement a week after taking office in January.

The high court’s action means that the ban will now go fully into effect for people seeking to enter the United States from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia and Chad. Lower courts had previously limited the scope of the ban to people without certain family or other connections to the United States.

Politico
Sparks fly over Trump tweets at travel ban court arguments

RICHMOND, Va. — Among all the legal and constitutional arguments a federal appeals court considered Friday about President Donald Trump's latest travel ban, the judges turned again and again to the same subject: the president's provocative tweets about Muslims. If the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals rules against the policy Trump issued in September, it seems likely that Trump's penchant for tweeting will play a significant part in the defeat. ...

After noting several tweets Trump sent last week circulating anti-Muslim videos made by a British nationalist group, Judge James Wynn suggested that the court would be blinkering itself to focus on the administration's reports and other formalities, while the president presents an alternate explanation for what's behind the policy.

"Do we just ignore reality and look at the legality to determine how to handle this case?" Wynn asked. "If the reality is that is the purpose, but the legality allows it, does that make a difference?...If the allegation is that this is an effort to ban Muslims from this country and every statement that is made by the indidividual who is the president who is making it goes to say that, but it is done in a way to say we did a world wide review, now it's legal?"

Justice Department attorney Hashim Mooppan said the president's Twitter statements shouldn't matter.

Denied asylum and facing deportation, Mexican journalist says he’ll be killed if sent home

A Mexican journalist who sought asylum in the United States in 2008 was arrested by U.S. immigration agents this week and told he would be deported, though an appeals board temporarily halted his removal Friday — sparing his life for now, he said.

Emilio Gutierrez, 54, who in October received a press freedom award from the National Press Club in Washington, said he and his 24-year-old son, Oscar, were taken into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Thursday while trying to enter an appeal to their asylum claim. ...

In July, after living nine years in the United States, Gutierrez’s asylum request was denied, and an appeal was rejected in early November. His attorney, Eduardo Beckett, said Gutierrez and his son were handcuffed and jailed Thursday when they presented themselves at an ICE processing center to enter an emergency appeal.

In a statement Friday, ICE officials said Gutierrez remains in custody pending a decision on his appeal. “Immigration judges in these courts make decisions based on the merits of each individual case,” the statement said.

With drug-related violence at record levels, Mexico has become one of the world’s most dangerous countries for the press, according to the New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists. More than 40 Mexican reporters have been murdered since 1992 for performing their jobs, including at least five this year. Only Iraq and Syria were more dangerous for the press in 2017, according to CPJ.

:snippity: .
What's the US procedure after denying asylum, deportation to the native country or to the country from where entering the USA?

Here in Switzerland the denied asylum seeker gets a couple of weeks to leave the country on their free will in any direction. Their choice to seek asylum at their new destination if they wish to do so (except within the European countries there is a treaty where denied in any one country of the pact means denied also for all other countries).

I was wondering if this journalist could ask the Canadian embassy for a visum to leave to there, possible look for travel to some European country, eg Spain in case of Mexicans.

NBC 10
Mexican Immigrants from South Jersey, in the US for 30 Years, Deported, Leaving Behind 3 Children

A New Jersey couple who immigrated to the U.S. from Mexico three decades ago was deported Friday, leaving behind their three American-born children.

In an emotional and religious farewell Friday morning, Oscar and Humberta Campos said goodbye to their children, ages 24, 22, and 16, before boarding a flight back to their native country.

"There is no distance. I will always have them in my heart," Oscar Campos said through tears.

They boarded a 6:30 a.m. flight at Newark International Airport bound for Mexico City.

Campos said he fled violence in his hometown, Tamaulipas, and crossed the border into Texas in 1989. In their nearly 30 years of living in the U.S., the couple purchased a home in Bridgeton and had a landscaping business, the Courier Post reported. Their two oldest children are college graduates.

On Thursday, federal immigration officials denied the couple's last ditch effort to appeal a deportation order and told them they had to leave the country.

The Guardian
Florida judge halts deportation of 92 Somalis shackled on plane for 48 hours

A Florida judge has halted the deportation of 92 Somali men and women who alleged US immigration authorities physically abused them when they were shackled on an airplane for nearly 48 hours during a failed attempt to return the group to Somalia.

US federal district judge Darrin Gayles halted their deportation hours after lawyers filed a class action lawsuit against the government that alleged the Somalian immigrants were held in “inhumane conditions” on the airplane and faced heightened danger in Somalia because of subsequent media attention.

The group of deportees, which included people who had lived in the US for decades, were headed to Somalia on 7 December when the flight was turned back to the US from Dakar, Senegal, after being held there for 23 hours.

The judge’s order on Tuesday night stops the government from deporting the men and women for at least two weeks. The government said in court on Tuesday that it had planned to try to deport the group again on Wednesday morning.

Reuters
Trump travel ban should not apply to people with strong U.S. ties: court

(Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Friday said President Donald Trump’s hotly contested travel ban targeting people from six Muslim-majority countries should not be applied to people with strong U.S. ties.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which covers several West Coast states, also said its ruling would be put on hold pending a decision on the latest version of the travel ban from the Trump administration by the U.S. Supreme Court.

Since taking office in January, Trump has been struggling to enact a ban that passes court muster.

A three-judge panel from the 9th Circuit narrowed a previous injunction from a lower federal court to those people “with a credible bona fide relationship with the United States.”

It also said that while the U.S. president has broad powers to regulate the entry of immigrants into the United States, those powers are not without limits.

“We conclude that the President’s issuance of the Proclamation once again exceeds the scope of his delegated authority,” the panel said.

Not sure where to put this...

http://www.oregonlive.com/business/inde ... tel_6.html
Discount hotel chain Motel 6 has been providing guest lists to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents since 2015, leading to the detention of at least six individuals in Washington state, according to a lawsuit filed by state Attorney General Bob Ferguson.

The discount hotel chain violated state privacy and discrimination laws when it turned over 9,000 guests with "Latino-sounding names" to ICE agents, according to the complaint filed Wednesday in Seattle.

The complaint against Motel 6, acquired by the Blackstone Group in 2012, comes less than four months after the company parent G6 Hospitality dismissed similar allegations in Arizona as a "local level" practice "without the knowledge of senior management."

Ferguson said a common "lawful enforcement acknowledgment form" used in multiple Motel 6 locations in Washington state shows the practice was centrally coordinated.
