The Trump administration’s “travel ban” — which will bar citizens of six majority-Muslim countries from entering the US for a period of 90 days — will finally go into effect over the summer. The Supreme Court that despite rulings in two different federal courts that the ban should be put on hold while judges decide whether it’s constitutional, the Trump administration should be allowed to enforce the ban starting on Thursday, June 29 ( after the court’s ruling was issued). But the Court’s ruling only lets the Trump administration ban certain people. Anyone with a “bona fide relationship”...

I’d be remiss if Ididn’t point out this from yesterday’s Washington Post:In a Feb. 22 memo, James M. Chaparro, head of ICE detention and removal operations, wrote that, despite record deportations of criminals, the overall number of removals was down. While ICE was on pace to achieve “the Agency goal of 150,000 criminal alien removals” for the year ending Sept. 30, total deportations were set to barely top 310,000, “well under the Agency’s goal of 400,000,” and nearly 20 percent behind last year’s total of 387,000, he wrote.Beyond stating ICE enforcement goals in unusually explicit terms,...

Hospitals are suddenly short of young doctors — because of Trump’s visa ban

This story was originally published by .

Advertisement A issued by President Donald Trump on June 22, barring the entry of most immigrants on work visas, came right as hospitals were expecting a new class of medical residents. Hundreds of young doctors were unable to start their residencies on...

The Trump administration is waging war on diversity - Vox

The Trump administration is waging war on diversity - Vox

ByShareStephen Miller stood in front of a gaggle of reporters this week and declared that “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free” was an embarrassing footnote in American history.He was talking about the White House’s push on the RAISE Act, a bill that would cut legal immigration to the US in half over the next decade (mostly by slashing family-based immigration and ending the country’s “diversity visa" lottery). This was part of an effort by the White House, as John Cornyn said, to reopen a national conversation about legal immigration — specifically,...

Deep(-Dish) Pluralism - Shadowproof

Hey folks. I’m Dara. I plan to spend my time here abusing Spencer’s gracious hospitality and trying my co-bloggers’ patience by making y’all feel guilty for not paying more attention to immigration policy.* But it’s a beautiful day in D.C., and the cherry blossoms are in bloom, and I figure I can start guilting you later.Besides, I need to rescue this blog from the culinary neo-imperialism of .

Imagine I’m a contractor at Boeing or Lockheed Martin. (This might be easier if you picture me with a mustache.) My sights, as is traditional, are trained on the DoD. The political landscape looks pretty bad from here: a massive budget deficit, a public pretty well convinced that money needs to be spent on domestic priorities, and a defense secretary who could dominate the NYTimes bestseller lists of 2018 with the memoir-slash-self-help-book “The Pentagon Diet.” As Richard Stallman once memorably , that’s not good, hackers, that’s not good.But let me turn my gaze to the Department of...
