REDIRECT: Due Process

This week Matthew and I are joined by former Immigration Judge Paul Schmidt to discuss the dwindling due process in our Immigration Courts. Matthew discusses his experience with Castro Tum, a case hand picked by the Attorney General to make life worse for literally everyone. Is the AG intentionally trying to overwhelm the Immigration Courts in order to justify extreme actions and the destruction of due process. Spoiler alert: yes.

Paul Schmidt’s blog is, it’s a great source for immigration hot takes.

REDIRECT: The War on Legal Immigration

This week we’re joined by Charles Kuck, former president of AILA and the host of some other immigration podcast (….The Immigration Hour) to discuss the important issues of today, including the Pee Tape (PT), whether Charles is still a republican, and the ongoing assault on legal immigration. Yes, that’s right: LEGAL immigration.

There is an all out war on legal immigration. Day by day, the Trump administration implements policies and practices that make it harder to immigrate to the United States. From big changes, like ending TPS, to small things, like making the forms more complicated, all done with a single goal in mind: eliminate legal immigration.
