KYMN Radio - Sat, 02/08/2020 - 11:50am

Ice fishing is a bit of a novelty. Even among experienced anglers, the sport holds a certain mystery. And when you think about it, there is something both strange and awesome about standing out on a frozen lake and dropping fishing lines to the unknown depths below.  How do I know if it’s safe? What

Another Injunction against another tRump restriction

Carol Overland - Legalectric - Fri, 02/07/2020 - 1:34pm

YEAAAAAAAAAAA! Injunction against yet another horrible tRump “policy” — that of ejecting, deporting, foreign students with valid F, J, and M non-immigrant visas for educational, vocational or technical study following the tRump administration’s August 9, 2018 Policy Memorandum, PM-602-1060.1:

Policy Memorandum: Accrual of Unlawful Presence and F, J, and M Nonimmigrants

GuilfordCollege_Injunction_gov.uscourts.ncmd.80187.69.0_1Download

Bottom line, INJUNCTION nationwide:

This case is about when the “unlawful presence” clock starts ticking for students with these visas:

Now thanks to this Order and Injunction, we’re back to the status quo, when the clock starts ticking after “unlawful presence” has been adjudicated.
