Matthew Kolken on Deportation And Removal

Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill.: Obama Administration is not Implementing Prosecutorial Discretion Memo

Rate this Entry

It has been reported that Rep. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill. has stated that the Obama administration is not implementing the prosecutorial discretion memo that is supposed to prioritize the deportation  of immigrants with criminal conviction over individuals who are only subject to deportation for immigration violations.


Congressman Gutierrez cites an example of a 19-year-old girl that was held in an Alabama jail for three days for a traffic violation. She has no prior criminal record, is a young mother, and is married to a United States citizen who is the father of her child.  Moreover, she did not intentionally break our immigration laws as she was brought to the United States as a 12-year-old. Gutierrez called her the "the gold standard for prosecutorial discretion."


I'm sure that now that the Administration has been embarrassed in the media action will be taken.  Par for the course.

    "Here's our goal: When someone is arrested and they pay their fine for driving without a license or missing a tail light or whatever driving infraction, that when the sheriff calls over (to ICE) and says, 'I got somebody for driving without a license,' the answer is, 'Call me when you've got something more important.'

    Illegal presence itself is not important and thus enforcement of the law should be ignored except in rare instances. Nice goal, Luis.
