Two college men in citizenship and naturalization fight

The United States immigration system is not necessarily clear or even consistent at times. Although both the Department of Homeland Security and the Obama administration have said that low-level offenders may not face deportation, that does not appear to always be the case. Moreover, individual states are either passing or proposing laws to make life more difficult for undocumented immigrants. At the same time, though, many in California and elsewhere are fighting for laws that would allow immigrants to more easily undergo the citizenship and naturalization process.Two such men who attend Pasadena City College recently returned from Alabama. The two are undocumented immigrants, and they went to Alabama to purposefully be arrested so as to protest a law that has been proposed by a state lawmaker. That law, if passed, would prevent undocumented children from attending a public school.

4 US citizens arrested because of Secure Communities, says ACLU

Many people in the San Diego area have likely heard of the Secure Communities program. Secure Communities is a federal immigration program administered by Immigration and Customs Enforcement that allows local law enforcement to use fingerprint analysis to identify illegal immigrants and check backgrounds against an FBI data base. If a fingerprint check turns up criminal history, it often leads to deportation.

California immigrant given humanitarian visa to continue dialysis

A Mexican citizen living in California was deported in November. The man was undergoing dialysis treatment at the time the deportation and removal proceedings were underway. He has since been successful in obtaining a humanitarian visa that allowed him to come back to the United States to receive his treatment.The man lived in Pasadena before being deported to Tijuana, Mexico, last month. Authorities reportedly went to the man's house saying they were looking for someone else. They asked him to step outside so they could inspect his car, but upon exiting the residence the man was arrested by immigration authorities. From that point, deportation and removal proceedings took only six hours.

Man facing deportation and removal proceedings, newly married

California residents may not be surprised to hear that federal immigration authorities have substantially stepped up deportations in recent years. According to one person, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has deported more people during the three years of the Obama administration than under any other administration that came before. That has meant that some 400,000 undocumented immigrants are being forced to undergo deportation and removal proceedings every year. One of these undocumented immigrants is a man who came here 16 years ago with his mother as a 6-year-old boy. In January 2010, officials discovered he was living here illegally after they arrested him in connection with an auto theft merely because his fingerprints were found inside a stolen vehicle. However, there was no actual evidence that connected him with that theft, so officials instead charged him with tampering with the car's rearview mirror.
