Secretary John Kelly Implements President Trump Immigration Policy, Issues Updated Guidance…

An important development today surrounding the removal of President Obama restrictions and policies protecting illegal aliens.

Today Homeland Security Secretary General John F. Kelly officially ordered federal agents to begin using current administration policy to streamline the immediate repatriation of illegal aliens caught in the U.S.


DHS issued two guidance memos [#1 HERE] and [#2 HERE] which expands the process of apprehension and deportation, again following through on one of President Trump’s chief campaign promises.  The memos cover a large set of immediate initiatives including:

  • Prioritizing criminal illegal immigrants and others for deportation, including those convicted or charged with “any criminal offense,” or who have “abused” any public welfare program
  • Expanding the 287(g) program, which allows participating local officers to act as immigration agents – and had been rolled back under the Obama administration
  • Starting the planning, design and construction of a U.S.-Mexico border wall
  • Hiring 10,000 Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents and officers
  • Hiring 5,000 Border Patrol agents
  • Ending “catch-and-release” policies under which illegal immigrants subject to deportation potentially are allowed to “abscond” and fail to appear at removal hearings

The status of young adult illegal aliens “Dreamer or DACA recipients” remains unchanged; however, agents were told there are no longer any other special classes of people that should be considered off limits for deportation.

Those caught at the border are to be swiftly shipped back, Mr. Kelly said, and he freed agents to target a broader universe of illegal immigrants for deportation from within the interior of the U.S. The secretary said agents are still to give priority to those with criminal rap sheets, but are free to use discretion — taken away from them in the Obama years — to detain anyone they believe to be in the country illegally.  (link)


(Via Fox News) […] The DHS directives come as the Trump White House continues to work on rewriting its controversial executive order suspending the U.S. refugee program as well as travel from seven mostly Muslim countries. The order was put on hold by a federal court, and Trump’s team is said to be working on a new measure.

The directives also come as the Trump administration faces criticism from Democratic lawmakers and immigration advocacy groups for recent ICE raids of illegal immigrants.

DHS officials on Tuesday’s conference call stressed that they are operating under existing law and once again shot down an apparently erroneous news report from last week claiming National Guard troops could be utilized to round up illegal immigrants. That will not happen, an official said.  (read more)

      I understand the reasoning behind leaving the DACA program as is, but does that mean trainloads of little “dreamers” from central and south America, etc., can still cross our border or has that piece of the program been shut down? If not, it should be. Some of the children arriving here as unaccompanied minors were basically given away to people at the border. Some of them probably ended up as human trafficking victims and all the horrible consequences that entails.

      Secondly, it was reported that thousands of those ‘dreamers’ that flooded in a few years back were not children, a significant number were young men probably ranging in age from 18-30. It would have been very helpful if Cruz and Beck had made a list of the older ones as teddy bears were handed to them but they slipped through the cracks, no doubt. Maybe they’ll be caught up with if they are receiving welfare.

      This is a good start, no question. The situation of people here on visas for work or school that have disappeared and over stayed will need to be found and returned to their countries, too.

      Thank you for doing the hard work on this, President Trump, and making hard choices that aren’t popular with some even though they are the right choices. You are a man of your word and we love and respect you for it.

    We know that $4.3 billion is paid out to illegals that take advantage of the IRS. The IRS this year will not issue returns to anyone that is using the child tax credit until after February 15th. The reason is that they are well aware of the fraud committed. The number of illegals that abuse our tax system and public assistance program is astronomical.

    Today is the day that all illegals have been fearing for a very long time. It wouldn’t shock me if 80% of illegals fall into the category above. Self deportation will begin in ways we could never have imagined. Trump never needed those buses because he knew that through his EO in late January and having a General in Kelly running DHS, itwould take care of them without having to round anyone up.

    Once ICE has the additional manpower coupled with the directive referenced above, s…t is about to hit the fan literally and figuratively. Shockwaves have been sent out. Mexico’s $50 million for lawyers will amount to nothing. Our AG is beginning to do his part with additional attorneys ready to run the through the system and out the door. When branches of government are working together, it is amazing what can get done.

    I understand folks anger about the “Dreamers”. Trump and his team are playing it right. By waiting on them last, you neutralize the left and the Obama coalition. I am really beginning to believe we wil rid the majority of the 11 million or whatever the real number is.

    Once the Secretary of Labor is put in place, we will see the other side put into effect. Employers will face severe fines and public shaming. They will reluctantly do their role in this.

    The greatest gift of all is that there is absolutely no federal judge they can run too. It is ALL on the books. Sit back and enjoy because we are seeing a revolution in front of our eyes!

    Anyone who is sent back to their home country who has abused the welfare system should be required to reimburse the US the amount fraudulently received before being considered to be allowed back in.

    Also, dreamers should be on the dock for reimbursement claims against their parents, since the parents are the reason for dreamers being here in the first place.

    It pisses me off when I see the amount of student loan debt US kids have to accrue to get any kind of college education, while the dreamers just milk the US taxpayers for a free ride.

    I think you also have to consider that the jobs taken by illegals are jobs that HS/college kids used to do to work their way, either fully or partially, through school. Back in the day many teachers had side businesses and, since they knew better than most anyone which kids were reliable, would hire the those kids to work in their side business. A lot of kids were even sharp enough to take over for the teacher/boss for short spells. I had several jobs via teachers, myself.

    US kids get doubly screwed with the jacked up education costs and the reduced opportunity to earn money via side jobs.

    Hopefully with more workers the DHS can fix their visa tracking system. At the same time agents are arresting Mexican illegal aliens they also need to be finding visa violators. This would help to show the enforcement is being applied to all types of illegal aliens.

      Student visa overstays might be more likely to self-deport than others, because they know that with the sea change in enforcement, if they wait to get caught, they’re not getting back in, and they really, really want back in.

    Too many of them have fake or forged documents. It takes 4 weeks to 90 days for the Social Security Administration to catch a stolen or incorrect ss number. If he doesn’t know already, our POTUS will discover the absolute inefficiencies in our federal agencies when it comes to documentation. Maybe this is why he has said, “It’s such a mess!” We need e-verify ASAP. We also need a tax or a fee imposed on all money leaving the U.S. The latter will cause many to self-deport, IMO. However, I’m patient. I stopped doubting Trump on November 8, 2016. Nothing worthwhile happens overnight.

    Undocumented citizen/resident/immigrant is a synonym for Illegal Alien.
    According to the Oxford online dictionary the following words mean
    Criminal – A person who has committed a crime.
    illegal Alien A foreign national who is living without official authorization in a country of which they are not a citizen.

    This is a great time to live in. President Trump is keeping his word. I listened to maybe 30 of his speeches but never thought we would see something as great as this. Illegal Aliens will almost immediately stop asking for Federal Tax refunds, which is a mayor source of their income. Having the IRS, the Social Security Administration, eVerify and ICE Working as a team will be all the enforcement we need . Just send them a letter questioning their claim and they will self-deport. Our Donald is a genius. Thank God for saving our Nation.

    Today in Los Angeles County we had a police officer killed and another injured by a gang member who killed his cousin and stole his car and got into a car accident. It turned out he was not illegal but he was a violent offender who should not have been out of jail but our jails are so over crowded so the let these guys out to wreak havoc on the rest of us….This is sickening. If we did not have so many illegals in jail we could have guys like this stay in jail.

    I wonder if P TRUMP will send illegals back who are sentenced in our jails. Illegals and gangs and unlawful lawmakers have taken over our gorgeous state.

    I’m afraid this is another badly worded document that will blow up in The Presidents face. Much too broad, especially where it offers law enforcement the option to invoke moral turpitude as a reason for deportation. A much narrower document, that was “crime specific” and detailed each infraction would have been a much better approach. Just concentrate on the criminals that have committed serious crimes – and after six months expend the net, if it is needed. Really a poor effort on the part of the White House.
