Mexican Immigrants Under the 45th U.S. Presidency Impacts of Heightened Immigration Enforcement and Anti-Immigrant Rhetoric
MetadataShow full item record
The lives of various immigrant populations in the United States have been placed under a powerful microscope with the existing executive administration. Its focus on immigrants from Mexico, in particular, began during the campaign season for the 2016 presidential elections. The integrity of Mexican immigrants was forcefully questioned the day that the current U.S. president announced his bid for presidency. On that day and each day since this administration took office, its immigration-related rhetoric and immigration enforcement priorities have contributed to a political and social environment that has led to the following outcomes for Mexican immigrants: feelings of heightened vulnerability and fear, various forms of coping with ever-changing policy, and the sentiment that while the tactics of this administration are unique, the threat of detainment and deportation have long been a danger for people of this community. Analysis of these findings may be used to guide social service organizations in their internal practices and their interactions with Mexican immigrants.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deports tens of thousands of people each year through a system in which abuse is endemic and oversight is nonexistent. By failing to either regulate ICE or hold it accountable for abuse, the U.S. Federal Government is violating the human rights of deportees. This report focuses on the final link in the deportation process: ICE Air Operations deportation flights. We begin with an analysis of ICE Air data released through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) from FY 2011-2018. In conjunction with analysis of this data, investigation into federal agency policy demonstrates that ICE Air Operations procedure is inconsistent, ambiguous, and unregulated. Secondly, we describe human rights abuses that have occurred aboard flights and analyze the efficacy of external accountability mechanisms, finding that while such abuses likely violate numerous U.S. statutes and international human rights agreements, privatized chains of contracting and subcontracting relationships mean there is virtually no accessible channel for oversight or remedy. The opacity of these private business relationships is demonstrated through the case study of King County, an immigrant-friendly jurisdiction that is nonetheless complicit in deportation flights, with an average of 300 deportees picked up from King County International Airport each month.Flight risk: ICE Air’s secrecy and systemic abuse in King County and beyond Werner, Julianne; Nance, Sorana; Kleiman, Ariella; Sorensen, Grace; Newton, Colin; Stephenson, Grace; Montstream, Jackie; Carroll, Zinaida; Gentner, Julia; Udalagama, Upandha; Krueger, Shawna (2019)U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) deports tens of thousands of people each year through a system in which abuse is endemic and oversight is nonexistent.
