It’s been over a year since the Minnesota Eight have been picked up by ICE, five have been deported. Two have won their cases, but are still being detained because ICE wants to appeal (not including the one featured). Al Jazeera did special on two of them.
Trump’s administration has been placing sanctions on countries that will not accept deportees piecemeal, basically based on how much a country is willing to pay for short-term work visas to America for their richest citizens. So immigration lawyers not only have to defend these people who were brought over as refugees, they have to navigate multiple different sanctions based on country in order to get it done.
Fuck American Imperialism.
