The Biden Administration is on the Wrong Side in This Crucial Supreme Court Immigration Case - The Immigrant’s Journal

On January 11, the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in Garland v. Gonzalez, the latest in a series of cases the court has taken on immigration detention. The case presents a basic question: whether the federal government can lock immigrants up, for months or even years, without a hearing to determine if their detention is justified. And the Biden administration is decidedly on the wrong side of this fight. #Biden #immigrants #immigrationnews #news

Opinion: Some Await God to Save Them From COVID-19. They Should Consider the Helpers He Sent. - The Immigrant’s Journal

By Colbert I. King, Washington Post A fellow was stuck on his rooftop in a flood. He was praying to God for help. Soon a man in a rowboat came by and shouted to the man on the roof: “Jump in. I can save you.” The stranded fellow shouted back: “No, it’s okay. I’m praying […]
