A Twice-Deported U.S. Citizen, and the Health Care Debate: September in Immigration News
Over the past month, the debate over health care has heated up as both sides argue about how immigration plays into reform. In addition, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) discussed the possibility of increasing the fees to apply for citizenship and a U.S. citizen was deported twice after the FBI ignored evidence of his citizenship. These stories and others proved to be popular among readers of CLINIC’s daily Immigration News Briefings. The following are the top five most read stories for the month of September:
- North Carolina native and U.S. citizen Mark Lyttle was deported two times to countries he has no connection to even after FBI evidence proved he was a U.S. citizen.
- Six Massachusetts boys have been charged with the beating of a Guatemalan immigrant in what some think is an alleged hate crime.
- Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL), the first Cuban-American senator, resigned from office stating he regrets that Congress has not been able to pass comprehensive immigration reform.
- A group of immigrants was deported after they sought the help of a fraudulent immigration attorney before they got the chance to testify against him.
- United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is considering increasing fees for citizenship applications due to a $188 million revenue deficit.
