Homeland Security unveils sweeping plan to deport undocumented immigrants

Homeland Security unveils sweeping plan to deport undocumented immigrants | 22 Feb 2017 | The Department of Homeland Security issued a sweeping set of orders Tuesday that implement President Trump's plan to increase immigration enforcement, placing the vast majority of the nation's 11 million undocumented immigrants at risk of deportation. The memos instruct all agents -- including Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) -- to identify, capture and quickly deport every undocumented immigrant they encounter. The memos require undocumented immigrants caught entering the country to be placed in detention until their cases are resolved, increase the ability of local police to help in immigration enforcement, call for the hiring of 10,000 more immigration agents and allow planning to begin on an expansion of the border wall between the United States and Mexico.
