Existing TPS for Yemenis extended:“In the fourth year of what the UN secretary general called the world’s worst humanitarian crisis, the Trump administration is once again demonstrating a disregard for basic humanitarian principles in its decision to merely extend Temporary Protected Status for some people from Yemen, but not allow recent arrivals to be covered by it.”

City Council repeals head tax: The Seattle City Council voted 7 to 2 Tuesday to repeal a tax to fund homelessness services and affordable housing that council members passed unanimously less than a month before. Councilmembers Lorena Gonzalez, Lisa Herbold and Mike O’Brien expressed regret over the vote, but said that the opposition, funded by the very businesses that they intended to tax, had waged a campaign against the measure so effective that is could not be overcome by the public vote in November.

Indigenous resistance, title make Trans Mountain pipeline extension ‘untenable,’ says economist: The Trans Mountain pipeline expansion is a high-risk investment for Canada and any future financial backers because it runs through unceded Indigenous lands, says one economist. D.T. Cochrane, an economic researcher with the Indigenous Network on Economies and Trade. He says the Texas oil giant Kinder Morgan’s April decision to suspend non-essential spending and the federal government’s subsequent nationalization of the controversial project are either ignorant to, or minimize, legal and financial risks that make the project “completely untenable.”

Without US leadership, what is the future for refugees and migrants?: The U.S. is slated to admit the lowest number of refugees in the upcoming year since the passage of the Refugee Act of 1980. Talks are ongoing for two proposed international agreements: “Global Compact on Refugees” and “Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration.”

AG Provides Guidance for Crime-Based Asylum Claims: U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a decision in Matter of A-B-which provides restrictive bright-line rules for immigration judges, asylum officers, and the Board of Immigration Appeals (BIA) to follow in adjudicating asylum claims based upon criminal harm (in this case, domestic violence) inflicted or threatened by non-government actors such as a domestic partner. For an in-depth analysis on footnote 12 see The Safe Third-Country Sleeper.

Brazil Public Defender’s Office Train Attorneys on Migration Law: IOM, the UN Migration Agency, and Brazil’s Federal Public Defender’s Office (DPU, in Portuguese) held a training on migration law for 31 DPU attorneys from ten Brazilian states.

German Migration Policy Feuding: Horst Seehofer has threatened to go it alone if a compromise with Merkel’s CDU cannot be achieved soon. Seehofer insists on stricter border checks, while Merkel is focused on a long-term EU-wide strategy.

Pope Francis Calls for Protection: Pope Francis said migrants are not numbers, but persons with feelings who need ongoing protection, adding that “particular concern must be shown for migrant children and their families.”

Hungary: Bill Makes Aiding Migrants a Crime: A revised draft bill published by the Hungarian government on May 29, 2018, would criminalize efforts to help migrants and asylum seekers and curb their access to protection.
