Re: “I Was Kicked Out of Federal Immigration Court — Because I'm a Journalist

This is not just lack of transparency. It is discrimination, pure and simple. Great work under arduous circumstances. You are a credit to the profession. Keep up the great work.

We should all be attending these as often as possible. I'm still annoyed that I was asked to provide ID to be allowed into a BART meeting.

Defendants CAN ask that a hearing be closed. The prosecution cannot. This prevents the courts from becoming start chambers. Criminal record are public records as FAR too many find out when job hunting.

Re: “I Was Kicked Out of Federal Immigration Court — Because I'm a Journalist

The saddest commentary on what happened to you is that no other journalist attends these hearings. Where is the free press that seems limited to opinion pieces on the freedom of the press but does not test it in real life?

Re: “I Was Kicked Out of Federal Immigration Court — Because I'm a Journalist

When I was going to grade school our teachers constantly told us the difference between the USA and the USSR was the latter's citizens had plenty of rights on paper but none of them in reality. That way they could claims their people were the freest in the world while they systematically enforced fascism.

That sound I hear now is all my teachers, who tried to install patriotism in me and make me a good American, spinning in their graves. After all this "indoctrination," it's the reality of America that changes how we perceive it.

Re: “I Was Kicked Out of Federal Immigration Court — Because I'm a Journalist

Wow. And it will probably only get worse.

If people have a right to a closed hearing, then it seems like the judge should ask them before the proceedings begin, and take appropriate action. Other than that, the public should have the right to observe.

Re: “I Was Kicked Out of Federal Immigration Court — Because I'm a Journalist

Thanks. I went to one in Arizona and they heard the cases with 30-50 people
"defendants" at a time. It was insane. They had no translation, and would enter their pleas en masse as "guilty." It was astonishing. That said, this was under Obama. I would hate to see what it's going to be like under Trump.

Re: “I Was Kicked Out of Federal Immigration Court — Because I'm a Journalist

Agreed. Thank you for your work. I hope more journalist's will flood the immigration court's and report about ICE actions and procedures.

Keep up the good work, and consider whether you need legal assistance to preserve a free press.

My business partners needed to fill out CA CDPH 0929 some time ago and came across a document management site that hosts a huge forms library . If people are searching for CA CDPH 0929 too , here's https://goo.gl/XCS41J

Re: “Dakota Access Pipeline Opponents Call on CalPERS to Divest

Absolutely agree with all positions opposing continued funding of DAPL(and any other fossil fuel infrastructure investments)for all the reasons mentioned.
To those who say staying invested is more powerful in terms of changing their activities, I say on the contrary: Divesting until such time as the company complies with the wishes of its investors(the people ofCALpers)will be a much more powerful way to effect changes that leaves the way open to reinvest.
Secondly, it is the money of the people of CALpers. They get to decide whether the place they invest it meets their ethical and moral standards. Anything else is placing profits over people and life. Get busy finding and funding Green Infrastructure to look at long term benefits, which are not necessarily measured in dollars, to the people who recive CALpers.
