    The Guardian has a bit more, although it's unclear whether this was applied only to certain carriers or all carriers serving these countries.

    DHS releases names local jails that won't hold immigrants

    The Trump administration is naming some names in its efforts to shame local jails that don't cooperate with immigration authorities.

    For now it's putting the spotlight on Travis County, Texas, home of liberal Austin.

    The administration has released a list of 206 cases of immigrants released from custody before federal agents could intervene. Roughly two-thirds were from Travis County.

    The State /Federal showdown begins.

    Keep in mind this very common situation: Undocumented person is arrested for DUII, processed into the jail. Arraigned the next morning, released on the condition that he not drink alcohol and not drive without a license, given his next court date (in my state he might qualify for a diversion program if this is his first DUII). What ICE wants to do is, as soon as he is processed into a jail, put a hold on defendant requiring the jail to hold him in custody until they come pick him up. Regardless of whether the judge at arraignment thinks it's fine for the defendant to be out on release while his state criminal case is pending. I don't think ICE pays the jail for the days (and it could be days) that the defendant sits in a local county jail, solely on the ICE hold request, until ICE comes to pick them up.

    It's the feds coopting state resources to enforce their immigration priorities and local jails have been fighting back against it for a while. This will be an interesting fight in the courts in the next few years.

    In my state, we have law actually stating local police cannot use local resources to assist federal immigration enforcement.

    Well, the question was asked how Trump was going to get his Deportation Force up and running.

    Whoops!

    No African citizens granted visas for African trade summit in California
    An annual African trade summit in California had no African attendees this year after at least 60 people were denied visas, according to event leaders.

    The African Global Economic and Development Summit, a three-day conference at the University of Southern California (USC), typically brings delegations from across Africa to meet with business leaders in the US in an effort to foster partnerships. But this year, every single African citizen who requested a visa was rejected, according to organizer Mary Flowers.

    Some are now questioning whether the denials to the Los Angeles event could be tied to the anti-immigration policies of Donald Trump, who is pushing forward with a travel ban against six Muslim-majority countries despite ongoing legal challenges.

    This has been going on for a while, apparently. State likes to mess with African nationals applying for visas, it's just accelerated recently. Keep in mind this isn't CBP dickery, these people were simply denied visas, and make report of screwy interviews.

    There's an extremely lucrative right wing martyr business plan. Probably not as lucrative as not being fucking racist assholes, but lucrative.

    Good news! The DHS Office of the Inspector General is responsible for investigating problems within the agency, and they're starting now.

    Watchdog investigating DHS for alleged misconduct by immigration officials at airports
    The official watchdog of the Department of Homeland Security is investigating alleged misconduct by immigration officials at US airports as a result of Donald Trump’s stalled travel ban on people from majority-Muslim countries.

    The Office of Inspector General (OIG), the body vested with investigating alleged abuses within the DHS, has confirmed to Congress that it is carrying out an internal review of the botched implementation of Trump’s executive order that imposed a travel ban on the predominantly Muslim populations of several nations. The ban was introduced twice, and on both occasions halted at the order of federal judges.

    These things do tend to take a while, but the OIG is most agencies are pretty good at being independent.
