New Travel Ban Will Allow for Deporting Millions
New travel ban will allow for deporting millions of undocumented immigrants. The new ban allows for a sweeping crackdown on undocumented immigrants. The document will seek to swiftly deport many more people without court hearings as well as target migrants charged with crimes or thought to be dangerous, not just convicts.
John Kelly Offers Several New Memos
Department of Homeland Security Secretary, John Kelly noted in memos that the plan, with few exceptions, the US “no longer will exempt classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement.” He wrote, that immigration offices should seek to deport undocumented people who have engaged in fraud or “willful misrepresentation in connection with any official matter before a governmental agency.”
immigration authorities could seek to deport people based on their own judgment that the immigrants represent a risk to public safety or national security. Kelly ordered the department to hire 15,000 more border patrol and immigration agents and to begin building a wall on the Mexican border to enact executive orders signed by the president on Jan 25.
The plan, if saved by revision, or scrapped by the courts, give the president a huge arsenal at his disposal for limiting immigration into the US and deporting millions of undocumented people.
Today the administration said it will try to deport almost all undocumented immigrants caught in the US, hire thousands more border patrol and immigration agents and begin building a wall along the Mexican border, enacting an immigration crackdown the president sought in a Jan 25 executive order.
