Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal


  1. Meet the New Boss, Same as the Old Boss

    by , 01-26-2017 at 10:30 AM (Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal)

    Yesterday, there was a tornado of activity on the immigration front coming from the White House. President Trump signed two executive orders relating to immigration. One focused on border security, and the other on interior immigration enforcement.

    Im focusing this explanation on the latter, and more specifically the establishment of new deportation enforcement priorities, which were contained in Section 5 of the interior immigration enforcement executive order. These new priorities supersede the November 20, 2014, memorandum of then Secretary Jeh Johnson.

    The new executive order established the following deportation priorities:

    5. Enforcement Priorities. In executing faithfully the immigration laws of the United States, the Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary) shall prioritize for removal those aliens described by the Congress in sections 212(a)(2) (Crimes), (a)(3) (Security Related Grounds), and (a)(6)(C) (Material Misrepresentation Fraud), 235 (Expedited Removal),and 237(a)(2) (Crimes, Controlled Substances, Firearm Offenses, Domestic Violence, Stalking, Violation of a Protective Order, and Crimes against Children) and (4) (Security Related) of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1182(a)(2), (a)(3),and (a)(6)(C), 1225, and 1227(a)(2) and (4)), as well as removable aliens who:

    (a) Have been convicted of any criminal offense;
    (b) Have been charged with any criminal offense, where such charge has not been resolved;
    (c) Have committed acts that constitute a chargeable criminal offense;
    (d) Have engaged in fraud or willful misrepresentation in connection with any official matter or application before a governmental agency;
    (e) Have abused any program related to receipt of public benefits;
