Homeland Security Has New Plans To Crack Down On Illegal Immigration

In a letter sent this summer then-Sen. Jeff Sessions pressed the Obama administration to explain why unaccompanied minors were not Homeland Security Has New Plans To Crack Down On Illegal Immigration

The memos are essentially instruction manuals for the sweeping executive orders issued by President Trump in late January.

Retired General John Kelly has been confirmed as Secretary of Homeland Security, a sprawling department responsible for everything from domestic antiterrorism to border security and disaster prevention.

Trump's policy calls for deportations of undocumented immigrants who abuse public benefits.

It says the focus should shift to prioritise immigrants who have been charged with a crime, regardless of whether or not they have been convicted.

"If you decide as president, 'I'm going to go after all the undocumented people in this country and jam them through the immigration court system, ' there is just no practical way to do that without more drastically depriving people of their right to make their claims for staying in the United States". Under the new policy, if someone can't prove he or she has been living in the United States continuously for two years, they could now be eligible for expedited removal. Under Obama, that expedited removal policy was limited to immigrants who had arrived within the past two weeks or were picked up within 100 miles of the border. Now, once an unauthorized immigrant is caught, they'll be detained until their cases are resolved.

Trump's planned measures against illegal immigrants have drawn protests, such as an event last week that activists called "A Day Without Immigrants" to highlight the importance of foreign-born people, who account for 13 percent of the US population, or more than 40 million naturalized American citizens.

The orders also provide for the hiring of 15,000 more immigration officials within two agencies: Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The DHS wants to recruit local police to assist with federal deportation efforts.

It is bad enough that Mr Netanyahu's government is deepening the occupation with a big new push to settle more Jews on Arab land. Security Council resolution condemning Israel, despite the US abstention. "We are old friends, Singapore and Israel", he stated.

In short, the DHS will broaden the powers it wielded during the Obama administration and grow its ranks.

Those immigrants who have been arrested for serious or minor crimes will be the first to be in danger of deportation, according to memos released to White House staff.

Senior Department of Homeland Security officials are so proud of the new measures that they spoke in fearless anonymity with the New York Times and other reporters on Monday.

"This isn't - look, what we have to get back to is understanding a couple of things", Spicer said.

Yet, as L.A.

The Trump administration could still change or end that policy in the future.

The memos do not change USA immigration laws, but take a far harder line toward enforcement.

The US president's travel ban, which resulted in country-wide protests, applies to migrants, refugees and US legal residents - Green Card holders - from Iraq, Iran, Sudan, Somalia, Syria, Libya and Yemen.
