US immigration arrests up nearly 40pc under Trump

Posted Мая 18, 2017

Already, Trump has issued an executive order that all but eliminates Immigration and Customs Enforcement priorities that until then put serious criminals first in line for deportation actions.

As America's Voice executive director Frank Sharry said earlier today, in order to justify their inhumane actions, "these guys spin, distort, exaggerate, and dissemble nearly as much as the President they work for".

Immigration enforcement operations have generated headlines nationwide since Trump signed an executive order on January 25.

An illegal immigrant who tried to enter the plane earlier this month has died after being held in custody by immigration agents, Homeland Security said Wednesday.

It is clear that any rhetoric purporting a focus on public safety and national security is empty.

Federal immigration arrests are up 37.6 percent under President Donald Trump, at a rate of more 400 a day, including violent offenders and gang members across the United States. The men had all been convicted of crimes, ranging from drunk driving to attempted murder, making them high priority targets for deportation.

Root added: "Such enforcement will lead to more separated families and more damage to communities in which these immigrants have been contributing to for years".

The amount of immigrants with criminal convictions who were arrested by ICE rose 20% from the same period in 2016, the agency said. She plans to take her youngest daughter, age 2, with her and leave her 10-year-old-son and 8-year-old daughter with her husband, who has permanent U.S residency. "They're going after people who have lived here for a long time".

"The cost of our current immigration detention system in both dollars and lives can not be justified", said Christina Fialho, one of CIVIC's co-founders.

He attributed the drop to a decline in arrests on the U.S. -Mexico border where immigrants are usually shipped home quickly and a lengthy backlog in U.S. immigration courts that issue deportation orders.

"Taking them off the streets is protecting everybody", said David Marin, director of enforcement and removal operations for the Los Angeles field office.

Since Magana-Gonzalez's arrest, his case has been accepted for prosecution by the US attorney's office, and he will face federal criminal charges for felony re-entry after deportation. The backlog in US immigrations courts caused a 12 percent decrease in the number of deportations, according to ICE.

Frank Sharry, executive director of America's Voice, a group that advocates for immigrants, said Trump's public comments about going after the most risky immigrants were a diversion from his goal: mass deportations.
