    Joe Biden to propose 8-year citizenship path for immigrants

    President-elect Joe Biden plans to unveil a sweeping immigration bill on Day One of his administration, hoping to provide an eight-year path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million people ...

    • The city police has told the Delhi High Court that a plea moved by JNU student and Pinjra Tod activist Devangana Kalita, accused in a case related to northeast Delhi riots, seeking copies of videos of protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) was not maintainable.

      At a time when the BJP is going all out to woo the Matua community, West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee reiterated her opposition to the Citizenship Amendment Act that promises to benefit the community.

      “I am asking my Matua brothers and sisters… how long have you been in Bengal? You are safe and secure under this state government. Matuas are already citizens. Then, why will the BJP feed (you) the Citizenship Bill like the “Moa sweet” (a Bengali dessert). After the Citizenship Bill will be applied, you will have no land/no identity,” she said, adding that as long as the TMC is in power, the BJP will not be allowed to declare “anyone living in the state”, a non-citizen.

      Serious debate is a crying need in a country where everyone talks but no one listens. More often than not, most decisions in India on public legislation and public works are taken behind closed doors, or not taken at all. And by people who have either vested interests or no interest.

      The Indian police have been accused often of watching passively when people were being beaten up by goons. The United States will have to live with images of some of its police officers taking selfies with rioters in its own capital and comparisons with how it treated Black Lives Matter protesters. But this comparison game is ultimately a race to the bottom.

      The women said the government had not provided them with the citizenship documents despite repeated pleas and that now they should be declared illegal immigrants and deported back to Pakistan. They threatened to march towards the Line of Control (LoC), so that the world listens to their plight.

      The investigating agency has urged a special CBI court to cancel the bail granted to Saxena, saying he "intentionally" kept Indian authorities in the dark about his attempts to acquire foreign citizenship in a bid to thwart the probe in the case. Dominica does not have an extradition treaty with India.

      Stanley Johnson, a former member of the European Parliament who voted Remain in Britain's 2016 referendum, told RTL radio he wanted to become a French citizen because of strong family links to France.

      Assam had witnessed heavy protests last year when CAA, aimed at making minority communities such as Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, Jains, Parsis and Christians from Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan, eligible to apply for Indian citizenship, was passed by Parliament. Five people were killed in the protests in Assam.

      Accusing the TMC government of not being sympathetic to the refugees’ cause, Kailash Vijayvargiya said the CAA will “change the lives of many members of the Matua, Namasudra and Rajbhanshi communities who don’t have citizenship of India, despite having come here many years ago”.

      The refugees are among the 243 Pakistani nationals, including those stranded in India because of Covid-19, who have been permitted to travel via the Wagah border.
