Trump Ends Catch and Release

Rate this Entry
Via Reuters:

U.S. President Donald Trump signed a memorandum on Friday ordering the end of a policy, known as “catch and release,” in which illegal immigrants are released from detention while awaiting a court hearing on their status.

I haven't seen the full memo yet, but I'll post it once I get my hands on it.

    Catch and release was just starting when I was an immigration counsel on the Judiciary Committee. Border communities were having a fit over the release of so many undocumented aliens. The aliens were committing crimes and causing other problems.

    INS got the brilliant idea of giving them bus tickets and sending them on their way to the interior of the country where the would disappear rapidly, i.e., the complaints would stop.

    A congressman showed a video at a Judiciary hearing showing INS taking them to a bus station.

    Administrations ever since have pledged to stop the practice, but they haven't had detention space for all of the ones who were being released. Trump has solved that problem. They will be kept at military bases near the border.
