Homeland Security Outlines Crackdown on Illegal Immigration

Homeland Security Outlines Crackdown on Illegal Immigration”

The Trump administration issued tough new orders that drastically broaden the ways in which federal immigration laws should be enforced, in a sweeping crackdown on undocumented immigrants, putting almost all of the country's 11 million undocumented foreigners in its crosshairs.

The memos dated Friday seek to implement President Donald Trump's broad directive to crack down on illegal immigration.

Kelly instructed the DHS to hire 5,000 additional Border Patrol agents in an effort to meet the White House's broadening of the federal government's priorities regarding the deportation of illegal immigrants.

The new rules would subject undocumented immigrants who can not show they have been in the country for more than two years to "expedited removal".

"But they decided, by the majority of states in the Electoral College as it works, that they wanted Donald Trump". He will go down in history as the only politician roundly condemned for delivering on his promises.

The guidelines outlined by the Trump administration, however, do expand the number of undocumented immigrants who are subject to deportation.

But the plan leaves in place Obama-era protections for immigrants who entered the United States illegally as children.

"Department personnel have full authority to arrest or apprehend an alien whom an immigration officers has probable cause to believe is in violation of the immigration laws", one memo reads.

The memos detail the increased resources that will be directed to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agencies, including the hiring of 10,000 officers and agents.

South Africa's decision to leave International Criminal Court unconstitutional says High Court
A high court judge instructed the government to revoke its notice of withdrawal from the court based in The Hague, Netherlands. He ordered Jacob Zuma, the South African president, to withdraw the "invalid" notification to the court of withdrawal.

According to The Washington Post, DHS officials are trying to allay fears incited by the new memos and other recent immigrant detainment activity.

This includes, the department notes, immigrants driving without a license.

The new set of policies marks a significant shift in authority granted to border patrol and customs enforcement agencies, which under former President Barack Obama only expedited cases near the border and for individuals who had only recently arrived in the country.

On the campaign trail, Trump regularly highlighted crimes committed by undocumented crimes and embraced the families of the victims of those crimes.

While the series will be available exclusively via Hulu in the U.S., Warner Bros. will distribute the project globally. This marks the latest in previous pairings of Abrams and King and is sure to be an anticipated one.

According to the same source, under the changes about to be imposed, if someone cannot prove they have lived in the USA for two continuous years, they could be eligible for "expedited removal". Tens of thousands of people took to the streets in more than a dozen Mexican cities last week to protest against the new president's plan for a border wall.
