Supreme Court Blocks Trump From Cancelling Daca Immigration Program

What is Daca? Daca (pronounced dah-kuh) is a federal government program created in 2012 under Barack Obama. It allowed people brought to the US unlawfully as children the temporary right legally to live, study and work in America, instead of living in the legal shadows, fearing deportation. Those applying were vetted, and then action to deport them would be deferred for two years, with a chance to renew on a rolling basis. And they would become eligible for basics like a driving license, college enrollment or a work permit. The program is not designed as a path to permanent residency or citizenship. Who are the Dreamers? Those protected under Daca are known as “Dreamers” – by the time Trump announced his decision to rescind the program, many hundreds of thousands had been granted appr...

Trump Orders All Liberians In America To Vacate The Country Within 12 Months

President Trump said on Tuesday he will end a special immigration program that has allowed nearly 4,000 Liberians to legally live and work in the U.S. over the past 25 years. Liberians will now face a similar situation to thousands of people from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Sudan who had their Temporary Protected Status (TPS) terminated by the Trump administration. They either have to leave the country at the expiration of the deadline or risk becoming undocumented immigrants facing deportation. Liberians were first granted TPS in March 1991 under former President George H.W. Bush due to armed conflicts that were gripping the country, and starting in 1999, Liberians were transferred into a separate program called Deferred Enforced Departure, a classification that allowed th...

Snoop Dogg Announces Decision To Relocate To Uganda

Veteran American rapper Snoop Dogg has decided to relocate to Uganda following racists remarks made by US president Donald Trump. The American president described the African continent as a ‘shithole’ during a meeting with US lawmakers on Thursday January 11th 2017. Donald Trump wanted to know why America would accept immigrants from ‘shithole’ countries rather than places like Norway, whose prime minister he had met the day before and whose population is majority white. The controversial US president made the racist remark when he was being presented with a proposal to restore protections for immigrants from African countries, Haiti and El Salvador. Trump’s derogatory remarks sparked uproar across the world. Snoop Dogg is among many people who were totally offended by the Amer...

No Apologies Needed!, By Olúfẹ́mi Táíwò

When I first read reports of Donald Trump referring to El Salvador, Haiti, and African countries as “shithole countries” and asking why the United States continues to allow immigration from them, I was neither surprised nor felt that he may have misspoken. We are at that point in our public knowledge of this president and his preferences that his being a racial bigot should no longer elicit shock or be explained away as some momentary lapse that has nothing to do with who he is as a person.   What I dreaded instead was what I was sure would follow and has followed: widespread outrage from the usual quarters and the direct victims of his racist outbursts and the predictable demand for apologies, possibly a retraction. As an original national of one of the countries named in this...

Canada To Send Lawmaker To California To Dissuade Migrants Influx

Canada is sending a Spanish-speaking lawmaker to California to dissuade potential migrants from illegally crossing the border following Washington’s decision to end the temporary protected status of some 200,000 Salvadorans. The trip was planned in anticipation of Monday’s decision by U.S. President Donald Trump and is part of a Canadian government attempt to prevent an influx of border-crossers. It is related to the prevention that happened in 2017 after the U.S. said it would end temporary protected status granted to some 50,000 Haitians following a devastating earthquake in the Caribbean nation in 2010. Many Haitians sought asylum in Canada based on expectations that they would easily be granted refugee status, the government said, leading lawmakers to reach out to diaspora com...
