Query on citizenship could undermine the accuracy of US census: experts 4.2.2018 deccanherald.com
The United States is gearing up to conduct its next population census in 2020 but a thorny question on citizenship has ignited controversy even before it has begun. When the decennial national headcount gets underway, census takers may have to ask respondents if they are US citizens, which observers say would discourage some ethnic minorities from participating and undermine the accuracy of the data. Arturo Vargas, head of the NALEO Educational Fund, said surveys have shown as recently as September that test respondents are now experiencing "unprecedented fear of the US government." President Donald Trump took office on a nationalist anti-immigrant agenda, linking foreigners and migration to terrorism, crime and lost jobs. In his State of the Union address last month, he reiterated his pledge to cut legal immigration and beef up enforcement. In this heated environment, with frequent reports of immigrants tearfully torn from their families and deported, large segments of the population could refuse to ...

Trump for 'fair, equitable, merit-based' immigration system 2.2.2018 General News
US President Donald Trump has reaffirmed that he favours an immigration system which is fair, equitable and based on merit instead of visa lottery, a mechanism he described as "terrible". He made the remarks yesterday during his address to the 2018 House and Senate Republican Member Conference in West Virginia.

Congressman: Deport 'illegal aliens' at State of the Union 31.1.2018 General News
Any "illegal aliens" who attend today's State of the Union address as guests of Democrats should be arrested and deported, a Republican congressman from Arizona said. More than 20 Democratic lawmakers have invited "Dreamers," young immigrants who were brought to the US as children and are living here illegally, to President Donald Trump's first State of the Union address. Congress has been unable to come up with a legislative solution for their legal status, which was at the centre of the recent government shutdown. "Of all the places where the rule of law needs to be enforced, it should be in the hallowed halls of Congress," Rep. Paul Gosar tweeted. "Any illegal aliens attempting to go through security, under any pretext of invitation or otherwise, should be arrested and deported." A spokeswoman for Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan said, "The speaker clearly does not agree." The US Capitol Police did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Among the ...

Judge says Trump made 'vicious' anti-immigrant statements 31.1.2018 General News
A federal judge in New York hearing two lawsuits challenging the cancellation of a program protecting some young immigrants from deportation accused President Donald Trump today of making "vicious" anti- immigrant statements. US District Judge Nicholas Garaufis told Justice Department lawyers he could not ignore Trump's "drumbeat" of statements and tweets about immigrants from Mexico and other countries. "In this country, in over 230 years, this is not ordinary," Garaufis said. "It's extreme. It's recurring. It's vicious." Garaufis is hearing lawsuits seeking to overturn the administration's decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The plaintiffs say the decision to end the program was motivated by racial animus against Latinos. Lawyers for the administration strongly deny the Republican president's decision was motivated by hatred. They say the DACA program was legally flawed. Trump has expressed sympathy for immigrants covered by the DACA ...
