Trump administration eyes expanding DHS deportation powers

15 Juillet 2017

More recently, the US has cut by almost half the number of countries that refuse to accept illegal immigrants that the trying to deport.

The Trump administration is considering a proposal that would grant the Department of Homeland Security expanded to power to expedite the deportation of undocumented immigrants living in the United States.

The administration has proposed a new policy that would empower the DHS to speed up deportations of those immigrants who can not prove they have lived in the USA continuously for more than 90 days, The Washington Post reported, citing a 13-page internal agency memo.

Marielena Hincapié, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center, told the Post that the policy under White House review would move the administration closer to the deportation force Trump proposed.

The firm owned 93,492 shares of the restaurant operator's stock after buying an additional 4,909 shares during the period. The business had revenue of $1.42 billion during the quarter, compared to the consensus estimate of $1.38 billion.

Citing two administration officials, the Post said the new proposal, which would not require congressional approval, is under review. Trump administration officials floated the 13-page internal memo in May. He pledged to deport as many as 3 million undocumented immigrants with criminal records. Some 780,000 beneficiaries of the Obama administration's DACA policy, which sought to protect immigrants whose parents brought them into the country illegally when they were children, may soon be at risk of being deported as well.

An administration official told the Post that, as with much the White House has already done or suggested doing with regards to immigration policy, they think the new deportation guidelines would help deter immigrants from trying to enter the USA or overstaying their visas in the first place. Immigrants' rights advocates also say the change would strip away due process rights and target people seeking asylum or another form of legal status.

Current rules, implemented by the Bush administration in 2004, limit expedited deportation to illegal aliens that have been in the country for less than two weeks and that were apprehended within 100 miles of the border.

A DHS spokesperson said the policy is a draft and has not been approved by Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.
