Supreme Court ruling on DACA brings joy, wary relief for many in Southern California

For the past few weeks, on the days when the U.S. Supreme Court releases its rulings, Rosa Barrientos has been waking up early to meet up with fellow immigrant-rights advocates – just in case a DACA decision was forthcoming. On Thursday, that day came. “I feel overwhelmed with happiness,” said Barrientos, 26, a recipient of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which on Thursday got a lifeline from the highest court in the land. Justices rejected the way the Trump adminis...

Deciding to become a citizen wasn’t the hard part — finding the lost paperwork was

From time to time until the presidential election in November, I’m going to feature local people who have gone through some interesting challenges to cast their vote in an election. Hopefully, their stories will inspire those who think voting is a waste of time and not worth the effort. Some were born here, and the right to vote came with their birth certificate. Others, like Rafael Gomez Gonzales from Spain, had to earn the right by becoming a U.S. citizen first. No easy feat, especially when y...

AKA Jane Roe and the Human Cost of Homophobia

The recently released documentary, AKA Jane Roe, is generating keen interest for its (spoiler alert!)   “deathbed confession” by Norma McCorvey, a/k/a Jane Roe in Roe v. Wade(1973), that her apparent conversion in 1995 from supporting abortion rights to born-again Christianity and the pro-life/anti-abortion cause was not genuine, but “all an act.”   McCorvey reveals (in words that may bring the lyrics of Bob Seger’s “Night Moves” to mind) that she used them and they used her:   “I took their ...

As highlighted via posts here and here, there is a growing number of federal court decisions granting sentence reductions using § 3582(c)(1)(A) because of the "extraordinary and compelling" public health crisis created by COVID-19.  But, as the as the number of requests for sentence reductions using § 3582(c)(1)(A) are growing, so to are rejections or deferrals of these motions (many of which are now based on the procedural issue flagged in this post).  Because I cannot provide a comprehensive a...
