Lawrence Yun

Realtors in some markets are reporting that the effect of tighter regulations on capital outflows in China and weaker currencies in Canada and the U.K. have somewhat cooled non-resident foreign buyer interest in early 2017. Stricter foreign government regulations and the current uncertainty on policy surrounding U.S. immigration and international trade policy could very well lead to a slowdown in foreign

Anne Doebler

Why do we want to use our vehicle and traffic laws to enforce an immigration policy when it's detrimental to public safety? I don't want someone to hit me who doesn't have insurance. I don't care what their immigration status

Bayard Winthrop

If you go through our supply chain and talk to a lot of the business that are ginning cotton, dyeing and finishing cotton, what you hear pretty universally is they have open job requests but few people actually want these entry-level, lower-wage

Tony Blair

The French and Germans share some of the British worries, notably around immigration, and would compromise on freedom of movement. Inevitably, therefore, Europe will comprise an inner and outer circle. Reform is now on Europe's agenda. The European leaders, certainly from my discussions, are willing to consider changes to accommodate Britain, including around freedom of

Theresa May

Since the government announcement last week, we have come into contact with some people in this situation and, if there are more of them, we want them to have the confidence to come forward and speak to us. The main concerns relate to undocumented people not coming forward because of fears about their immigration status after 12 months. Firstly, that will have an impact on the world of the inquiry because you are potentially losing the number of eyewitnesses that could be there. Second, it's about making sure that people are able to access the provisions that the government has put in

Nick Harvey

We have been doing outreach work but we have not had any patients coming to the last two clinics. A lot of people seem to have gone under the radar. What we also seem to be seeing – even though Theresa May said that there would be no immigration checks on people who survived the fire – is a concern by some people about putting their name on to the NHS database, too. It's something that people are afraid

Carl Rusnok

I can't blame them for the current situation. What would be the point of bringing it up to someone who has no curiosity, doesn't listen, etc.? Why would anybody bother? 'We're going to lose talent, rather than importing talent that we always need'. The immigration policies are

Donald J. Trump

It's a decision that I make, and it's a decision that's very very hard to make. I really understand the situation now. I understand the situation very well. What I'd like to do is a comprehensive immigration plan. But our country and political forces are not ready yet. In other words, if you can't see through that wall -- so it could be a steel wall with openings, but you have to have openings because you have to see what's on the other side of the

What we were seeing is that certain kids that the Office of Refugee Resettlement thinks are a flight risk or a danger were being detained without any judicial process to release them.

The City of Chicago submitted our letter to the U.S. Department of Justice, which demonstrates our compliance with the law as other cities have also done. But make no mistake, Chicago will continue to be a welcoming city and stand up for the values that have made us a beacon of hope for immigrants and refugees from around the world for

It goes to show just how sloppy this is. What immigration does is check a box on a boilerplate form saying they have probable cause to hold someone in custody, and that is supposed to be constitutionally sufficient to detain them. That's what we're saying is

Diane Abbott

I'm pleased to see the government has met the request I raised in the Commons on Monday for an immigration amnesty for Grenfell survivors. Without an immigration amnesty there may well be people we never know about, and too many people who need help who will not receive it. But this does not go far enough to ensure the confidence of those affected. Why would they volunteer their details knowing that in just 12 months they could face deportation? The amnesty must be indefinite to be truly

Timothy Gassin

Some, given the option to return to New Zealand, choose to stay and appeal the decision. They've built a life in Australia, they've got wives and kids in Australia. They might own a home in Australia. The fact that people can still move freely shows that yes, it's a special arrangement that doesn't exist with other countries. But as far as immigration goes, it's been step after step

Fred Midgette

When most people think border security, they think Border Patrol. What we do by intercepting drugs on the high seas has a direct connection to what happens at the southern border in terms of stopping illicit drugs and illegal immigration. When you are stopping drugs at the Rio Grande, that's already a loss. You want to push that stuff off from America as far as you

Polly Toynbee

As reality bites, Conservative Euro-fever continues to rage, with pros and antis both rampant. Labour must stand by but prepare to step in. The Brexit crunch is here. Ministers from DExEU, the new Brexit department, trying to bite the promised cake find their teeth breaking on the concrete hard choices. Theresa May’s red lines, her adamantine insistence on total immigration control with no European court of justice oversight, makes the department’s job impossible on single market and customs union access. So James Chapman, the Daily Mail journalist who was previously David Davis’s chief of staff, told Radio 4 on Saturday. There are no cakes, only rocks and hard places. Sticking to her red lines really does mean losing free access for our trade, and the 60% of our exports that go either to the EU or to 45 other countries with EU trade deals. It means lorries paying tariffs backed up around the M25 to

When the illegal act is a false statement, that means demonstrating that the defendant lied about facts that would have mattered to an immigration official, because they would have justified denying naturalization or would predictably have led to other facts warranting that result.

The preservation of DACA is a tribute to the strength of the Dreamer movement and an acknowledgment -- at least in part -- by the Department of Homeland Security that it should not be targeting undocumented immigrants who have strong ties to their communities and have abided by the

I do have a big heart. We're going to take care of everybody… But I will tell you, we're looking at this, the whole immigration situation, we're looking at it with great

Our nation's immigration laws need to be improved, but Congress has the sole authority – not the president – to listen to the American people and write the

This is no big change from the Obama policy. There may be a little effect on immigration and business, but diplomatic relations with continue. That is the main part of the agreement [with Obama].feedback

At the same time, we are continuing to reform legal routes to the UK from outside Europe and will use the opportunity of leaving the EU to take control of immigration from within the EU

David Green - Serious Fraud Office

In recent years, successive governments have shown all the signs of wanting to hide the true scale of immigration from members of the public. The Government has better calculations of the scale of both legal and illegal immigration but has deliberately suppressed

Corey Stewart

We're gonna try to have a conversation. I know he wants my endorsement, my support. I'm voting for the Republican ticket. There's no question about that. The real question is, will he support my supporters. Unless he stands up and takes clear positions on defending our heritage and our history, supporting the president, cracking down on illegal immigration, those who supported me are not going to go with

There are times when we know someone is an MS-13 gang member, and we know someone is an active MS-13 gang member, but we're not in a position to make a criminal arrest. So another tool in our toolbox is to work with the Department of Homeland Security to target active known MS-13 gang members for violation of civil immigration laws, which is another way to remove dangerous individuals from our

They're usually offered: 'You can be in detention or you just go back and withdraw your request to enter the country'. Most of them end up spending a night or two at the immigration holding center and then they go on the plane and go back

The lifting of the visa requirement for Mexican citizens strengthens Canada-Mexico ties and builds momentum to expand trade, investment and tourism. It will provide lasting benefits for both countries. As with all visa lifts that Canada undertakes, we continually and carefully monitor migration trends to ensure the integrity of Canada's immigration

Attitudes about immigration, feelings toward black people and feelings toward Muslims became more strongly related to voter decision-making in 2016 compared to 2012. The shifts among white people overall and white people without a college degree occurred mostly among white people with less favorable attitudes toward black people. No other factor predicted changes in white partisanship during Obama's presidency as powerfully and as consistently as racial

Trump's candidacy has brought more economic liberals into the Republican Party, moving the party's center of gravity on these issues to the

As part of ICE's efforts to process the backlog of these individuals, the agency recently arrested a number of Iraqi nationals, all of whom had criminal convictions for crimes including homicide, rape, aggravated assault, kidnapping, burglary, drug trafficking, robbery, sex assault, weapons violations and other offenses. Each of these individuals received full and fair immigration proceedings, after which a federal immigration judge found them ineligible for any form of relief under U.S. law and ordered them

Diane Abbott

There was a sense in this campaign nationally that whether you were a Ukip voter concerned about immigration, or whether you were a young professional in Hackney worried about Brexit, in the end, faced with the Tory campaign, you came home. Clearly I was part of Lynton Crosby's grid. The first time I became aware that I was a target of a national campaign was when people in marginals in the north were WhatsApping me to say there were ad vans talking about me, with a picture of me and Jeremy

James Hick - ManpowerGroup

You might have expected hiring confidence to have taken a real hit, but employers have been standing firm. However, unquestionably they feared the outcome of a hard Brexit on the jobs market. The election result throws into question the Conservative commitment to slash immigration to the tens of thousands and double the levy on non-EU workers to £2,000. The simple truth is that some sectors will stall without skilled workers from overseas, which could result in the UK economy entering a
