Trump tamps down on illegal immigrants

UPDATE: The U.S. Department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement has issued the following statement to WEMU: "ICE Enforcement and Removal (ERO) officers conducted targeted enforcement actions in the area of Ypsilanti on Wednesday. morning, February 23".

John Roberts reported this morning on the Department of Homeland Security's new initiatives to crack down on illegal immigration and step up enforcement efforts.

"ICE being in Great Barrington is not, per se, anything new", said Joseph Best of immigration law group Best & Associates. "We will not use county resources for the sole objective of immigration enforcement".

ICE agents have arrested at least 21 undocumented immigrants this month in Charlotte, all of them individuals who were specifically targeted because they had criminal backgrounds, including people who had been previously deported.

However, Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone ended the practice of so-called "courtesy holds" last week.

Adopting a different approach than former president Barack Obama, Trump's administration will expedite deportations, discourage new asylum seekers and target unauthorized immigrants who may or may not have committed a serious crime.

The Trump administration is greatly expanding the number of people living in the US illegally who are considered a priority for deportation, including people arrested for traffic violations, according to agency documents released Tuesday. Some were released on bail, others on their own recognizance. That information was not confirmed by ICE officials.

So, he ventures into the unknown territory only to be surrounded by a mysterious group, which has massive manpower and armour. The strangers then trapped them in a circle, but then Rick catches the eye of one off-screen and breaks into a smile .

Following through on a campaign promise, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez has severed a controversial partnership with federal immigration officials that facilitated deportations, the sheriff's office announced Wednesday.

Yasmeen Pitts O'Keefe, ICE spokesman, said the federal agency is working to locate and arrest those released. "Four individuals were taken into custody and are now being detained".

The notice advises residents to call police to confirm whether ICE is in the city. She also noted that Hudson County has a contract with ICE in which the county gets paid $110 per person per night for federal prisoners held in the county jail in Kearny - giving a "financial incentive" for ICE detentions, Wang said. "It is not something that we want our local law enforcement to be doing because it interferes with all of the work they've been doing to build stronger relationships with the community". According to findings, holding someone on a detainer after they have completed their local or state custody is essentially a new arrest that must meet Fourth Amendment requirements. To that end, local leaders have organized a public meeting to clarify current immigration policies, provide information about legal resources and to hear everyone's concerns. Sometimes, that authority is given in the form of an immigration judge's order for removal - a product of due process that allows the person to contest their removal, he said.

"The fact is, local law enforcement is much more likely to encounter people (and) know where they are", he said.

One of them is that he hopes his decision will help restore the trust of Harris County's immigrant community in the Sheriff's Office, but Gonzalez also notes they were spending more than $600,000 a year in salaries by participating in the program.

"If I have a client who is a visa violator and they are otherwise entitled to have their child, who is a US citizen, to petition for their parent to get a green card, are they going to instead be served with a notice to appear in immigration court or will be given a removal order?"

In 2010, ICE agents detained 1,443 undocumented arrestees, or 5.9 percent of the total Ventura County jail population.
