Donald Trump’s DHS can now officially deport any undocumented person.
A victory for the American public and future American jobs.
“The Department will no longer exempt classes or categories of removable aliens from potential enforcement,” an official memo says.
A set Department of Homeland Security memorandums released Tuesday reveal that President Donald Trump has declared an open season on the deportation of undocumented immigrants.
They also expanded Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s ability to perform expedited removals on people who have been living in the U.S. for up to two years. The U.S. will also prosecute the parents of unaccompanied minors as smugglers, according to the documents.
DHS directed ICE to hire 10,000 additional people to get the job done, according to one of the memos.
The document does indicate that the priority remains “removable aliens” who have been convicted of a crime or charged with a crime.
“These memos are breathtaking in scope,” Marielena Hincapié, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center, said Tuesday on a press call. “They basically throw the rule of law out the window.”
The most concerning aspect is the ability to carry out expedited deportations, Lee Gelernt, an American Civil Liberties Union attorney, told The Huffington Post.
“You can now have people whisked away out of Chicago or St. Louis, anywhere in the country and there’s no due process,” he said.
But the organization vowed to fight.
“President Trump does not have the last word here — the courts and the public will not allow this un-American dream to become reality,” Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, said in a statement.
Trump consistently promised previously to crack down on undocumented immigrants both throughout his campaign and since he assumed office.
The industrialist president Donald Trump is finally doing his job. No blocks by judges this time. Let our president bring our jobs back to our country.
The crackdown on illegal criminals is merely the keeping of my campaign promise. Gang members, drug dealers & others are being removed!

There were an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the U.S. in 2014, based on Pew statistics.
Donald Trump’s new DHS dream team now has the power to deport any undocumented person including parents. In recent DHS memos published the agency is calling for mass deportations & to crack down on parents who help undocumented children enter the U.S.
