US DHS Preparing to Deport All Illegal Aliens
The US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Tuesday began rolling out President Donald Trump’s plans to aggressively crack down on illegal aliens.
The plan, outlined in two DHS memos, includes an attempt to deport almost all illegal immigrants caught in the US, hire thousands more border patrol and immigration agents, and start building the promised wall along the Mexican border.
The moves stem from President Donald Trump’s immigration crackdown noticed in the 25 January executive ordered.
They do not cover President Trump’s 27 January ban on the entry of foreign travelers from 7 predominantly Muslim nations, which was halted by a federal appeals court.
A revised version of the travel ban will be issued “very soon,” Trump said in remarks at the National African American Museum, which he toured in Washington Tuesday morning.
The memos were sent to heads of Key agencies and signed by DHS Secretary John Kelly.
General Kelly said in one memo that it “implements new policies designed to stem illegal immigration and facilitate the detection, apprehension, detention, and removal of aliens who have no lawful basis to enter or remain in the United States.”
The plan includes an aggressive use of existing laws to process undocumented immigrants living in the US, including “expedited removal” procedures that deny court proceedings to those here illegally.
Under the new Law & Order policy, immigrants need to prove they have been living in the US for 2 years.
The plan leaves protections in place for immigrants who entered the country illegally as children, known as “Dreamers.”
Donald Trump ran for President on promises to crack down on illegal immigrants, some of whom he has claimed were competing with lawful US residents for jobs and contributing to rising crime in some cities.
