This monstrous cruelty is being committed because Trump knows its what the MAGA monsters want… Trump voters simply feel better about their shitty worthless existence if they can feel like they are inflicting even more suffering on others that are less fortunate. That is ‘winning’ in their twisted little minds.
If a Trump supporter claims they are pro-life, show them this- then spit in their face.
They were never pro-life…
Dismaying immigrants and advocates, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has sent out letters saying the agency will no longer consider most deferrals of deportation for people with serious medical conditions, documents show.
The agency is now saying those decisions will be made by another agency: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
That was not made clear to Boston-area immigrants who received the denial letters last week. Advocates said they received no formal announcement of a change in policy.
The small program, known as “medical deferred action,” allows people to remain in the U.S. for two-year periods if they can prove extreme medical need. Many of the people affected by the policy change came to the U.S. through a visa or other permitted status and are requesting to stay beyond those terms to receive medical treatment.
“This attack on children and their families is inhumane and unjust,” said Ronnie Millar, executive director of IIIC, in a press release. “These families are all here receiving treatment that is unavailable in their home countries, and our government has issued them a death sentence.”
In a statement, Marilu Cabrera, a public affairs officer with USCIS, confirmed that field offices will no longer consider nonmilitary requests for deferred action and will instead direct resources to administering “our nation’s lawful immigration system.”
The statement went on to say that this reallocation of resources does not affect Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or other deferred action requests processed at USCIS service centers.
The IIIC held a noon news conference Monday about the government’s decision, at which some affected families were in attendance.
One of the center’s clients, 16-year-old Jonathan Sanchez, has a pending request with USCIS and fears his request will be denied given the procedural change. Sanchez, who was born in Honduras, was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis as a baby, after his parents sent blood samples to the U.S.
His father, Gary Sanchez, told WBUR he already lost a daughter to the disease 18 years ago.
“Before my son, we had a daughter with cystic fibrosis, but she died in our country, since, in our country, there are no medical specialists or centers specialized in cystic fibrosis,” he said.
The Sanchez family entered the U.S. on tourist visas in 2016 and was first able to extend. But the treatment was longer than the six-month extension so the family applied for medical deferred action in November. Now, the teen said he is feeling stressed and scared he might need to leave the U.S.
“If they deny the program, then I need to go back to my country, and I’ll probably die because in my country, there’s no treatment for [cystic fibrosis],” Sanchez said, crying and trying to catch his breath. “Doctors don’t even know what’s the disease. The only ones who can help me are here in the United States.”
