Trump administration directs Border Patrol, ICE to expand deportations

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly on Saturday signed sweeping guidelines giving federal authorities more power to aggressively detain and deport illegal immigrants, The Washington Post reports.

The memos detail how the federal government will implement the controversial executive orders President Donald Trump signed in late January that focused on these issues.

Notably, the two Obama-era regulations that the new orders continue to let stand are the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which allows undocumented immigrants brought here as children to remain in the country, as well as the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans program, which allows some undocumented parents of American citizens to remain in the country.

Mr Kelly's memo also includes instructions to enforce a long-standing provision of the US Immigration and Nationality Act that allows authorities to send some people caught illegally at the border back to Mexico, regardless of where they are from.

"The memos also instruct the agencies to recruit police and sheriff deputies to assist immigration agents".

People who receive ACA subsidies would essentially use those credits as the portable tax credits during the transition period. It is unclear how Republicans will pay for their legislation.

There are two memos at issue here; one dealing with interior immigration enforcement, and the other with border security.

A new version of a Trump administration travel ban will not stop green card residency holders or travelers already on planes from entering the United States, U.S. Secretary for Homeland Security John Kelly said on Saturday. The previous policy authorized expedited removal for undocumented immigrants found within 100 air miles of the border and within 14 days after entering the country.

The Obama administration made a point of prioritizing those with criminal histories for deportation.

He also ordered the hiring of another 5,000 officers for the Customs and Border Protection agency and 10,000 for the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

Now awaiting White House confirmation, here is the breakdown of what the leaked DHS memos entail.

The department also stated Bieber and the bartenders left by the time deputies arrives. Justin is being charged by police with misdemeanour battery in the case.

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

Kelly also said the new rules replace nearly all previous rules issued under previous administrations on how deportations should be conducted. That practice, dubbed "catch and release", led to many undocumented immigrants living in the USA and skipping out on their court cases. Trump cited "terrorism concerns" as the reason behind the order.

Kelly's memos were submitted to officials at Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

The DHS officials said the Trump administration is seeking to maximize federal immigration policies that have been on the books for years but were not used by the Obama administration. 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. The Legislature is now debating a bill to outlaw "sanctuary" jurisdictions in Texas, the term commonly assigned to local entities that don't enforce immigration laws or hand over undocumented immigrants to federal authorities.
