Ithaca joins legal opposition of Trump travel ban

Matt Steecker
Ithaca Journal

April 11, 2017


Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick and City Attorney Aaron Levine have taken legal measures in their ongoing campaign to oppose President Donald Trump's executive order banning travel from six Muslim majority countries.

By joining an amicus brief in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, Ithaca has joined over 30 cities opposing Trump's order. On March 13, the office of New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman also submitted a declaration from Lavine supporting efforts to challenge the executive order enacting the March 6 travel ban. The document, titled Declaration of Immediate and Irreparable Harm described the order's effects on the city's economic and cultural environment if the ban were remained.

The declaration states Ithaca's educational institutions serve and accept international students, and rely on the work of foreign-born teachers, researchers and other academic professionals. Within the declaration, Lavine states Jennifer Tavares, Tompkins County Chamber of Commerce president, said President Trump’s executive orders have caused potential tourists to cancel plans to attend and visit Ithaca regional events and attractions.

According to the documents, Trump's executive orders also have impeded the city's ability to accept Syrian refugees.

A news release stated: "Myrick and Lavine stand ready to continue ensuring that Ithaca plays its part in standing against the Trump Muslim Travel Ban, which is as offensive to American values as it is unconstitutional."

Too bad the mayor doesn't put this much effort into crime control and the heroin epidemic. Does the mayor own property in Ithaca so he knows what it's like to have to pay property taxes and feel the pinch of ever increasing property taxes? Probably not.

An Ontario County wrench voicing concerns about Ithaca. Interesting. Rather than making biased, uneducated, blanket judgements, drop down for the next Common Council meeting. First Wednesday of each month at 6:00 p.m., 3rd Floor, City Hall, 108 E. Green Street. You might actually learn a thing or two.

Explaining how, why an undocumented immigrant was arrested by ICE in Ithaca

ITHACA, N.Y. -- The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement took an undocumented Mexican immigrant into custody Tuesday morning in Ithaca and scores of people in the community who considered the city a "sanctuary" are asking the same question: “How did this happen here?”

Jose Lopez Guzman, 32, was taken into custody by multiple ICE agents around 11:30 a.m. on Cascadilla Street. He does not have family members in Ithaca.

ICE said in a brief statement Tuesday night that the arrest happened “following a routine targeted enforcement action.”

In Guzman’s case, it’s unclear whether a criminal charge dating back to 2013 played a role in his arrest Tuesday.

According to court records, Guzman was charged with second-degree assault after an incident that allegedly occurred Oct. 31, 2013.

In February, Ithaca Common Council voted to add some teeth to the city’s Sanctuary City status, which had been in place since 1985.

Legislator Anna Kelles, who worked on the resolution to make Tompkins County a sanctuary county in February, said that despite the designations, it would be against the law to prevent ICE from coming to Ithaca or Tompkins County, something that has been a public misconception.

CNN reported on March 25, however, that the sanctuary city status of more than 200 cities nationally is linked to increased enforcement operations in those areas.

The news organization credited a senior US immigration official with direct knowledge of ongoing ICE actions with informing them that, “High-ranking ICE officials have discussed in internal meetings carrying out more raids on those locations…”

Multiple local police officers, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said that in at least the past 10 years of working at IPD, none of them could recall an instance where a person was taken into custody by ICE.

"We can only conclude that ICE is targeting sanctuary cities," Mayor Svante Myrick said at the rally Wednesday evening, which drew hundreds of people within less than 24 hours notice. "This is an attempt to bully us. There's no question they want us to stop being a sanctuary city."

Ithaca rally: 'Let's get ICE out of Ithaca and Tompkins County'

Ithaca Voice

May 4, 2017

ITHACA, N.Y. -- Activists, politicians and community members stood together Wednesday evening at a rally on the Ithaca Commons to make two primary things clear: U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents are not welcome in Ithaca and this community will stand with undocumented immigrants.

Jose Lopez Guzman, 32, was taken into custody by ICE agents Tuesday morning on Cascadilla Street, an immigration official confirmed. Khaalid Walls, regional director of communications for the northeast region of ICE, clarified Wednesday morning that Guzman was specifically sought out due to “a routine targeted enforcement action.”

Police officers, activists and local politicians have all said that Guzman's arrest by ICE agents in the city of Ithaca was the first arrest of an undocumented person for immigration violations in years. A high-ranking official within ICE allegedly told CNN recently that officials are targeting sanctuary cities for increased enforcement action, but Walls said the reported leak is not true.

People in the city of Ithaca don't buy the statement.
