A quiet change in US policy threatens immigrants who apply for a change in status...

By Hassan Ahmad | Quartz | July 07, 2018

It went largely unremarked, just another bland procedural decision from a government agency. But a quiet policy change at the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services last month is the next step toward a nationwide purge of non-citizens.

On June 28, USCIS announced that non-citizens who apply for a “benefit”–such as an extension or change of status, a green card, or citizenship—would be placed in deportation proceedings if that benefit is denied. For years, a criminal conviction has been required to be fast-tracked for deportation. Now, merely losing your petition for visa extension, being charged with a crime, or doing something DHS considers to be criminal (even if never arrested or charged) places you on the same fast-track.

Once in deportation proceedings, the non-citizen must prove she is eligible to stay in the United States. She will not be provided a lawyer; she may be detained, sometimes with no bond. There is no right to a speedy trial, nor trial by jury. Here are a few examples highlighting the full extent of the new rule.

1. Does that mean Trevor Noah and Jim Jeffries can be deported if their green cards are not renewed?

What about any non naturalized entertainers?

2. this is getting very scary

as they are going against those who are here legally and making it harder for them. This and also the denaturalization task force. Why do they need dozens of lawyers? Is there gonna be mass denaturization of ‘undesirables’? We can expect anything from this admin even planting some bogus evidence, we just can’t trust anything they do because they turn professional positions into political ones.

3. It's simple: if immigrants are vermin, then they must be treated like vermin without exception.

Has nothing to do with public safety or order or justice. It's all about playing to the slime in his base.
