New Trump deportation policy expands law enforcement powers

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.

Donald Trump's immigration order marks a sharp break with those policies. To achieve this, the Trump administration will authorize a broader use of the existing "expedited removal" procedures, greatly reducing the need for court proceedings.

Almost all of the roughly 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States are liable for deportation under the rules.

DHS said it will leave in place the Obama administration's protections for undocumented immigrants who were brought to the country illegally as children, also known as DREAMers, and undocumented immigrants whose children are USA citizens or legal permanent residents.

After nationwide immigration raids this month in which more than 680 people were arrested, the Department of Homeland Security issued a nothing-to-see-here statement downplaying the sweeps as anything out of the ordinary. DACA has deferred deportations for people who came to the US illegally as children and has provided work permits to more than 750,000 immigrants.




This latest move aligns with that order, which also called for increased border security and stricter enforcement of immigration laws.

The Department of Homeland Security has released memos regarding the implementation of two of the President's executive orders that are created to protect the homeland.

The memos offer the clearest picture yet of how Trump plans to tackle the issue of undocumented immigration, including calling for enlistment of local law enforcement to help detain and remove unauthorised individuals, construction of the border wall and expansion of detention facilities. The memo says all "removable aliens" could be subject to the new guidelines, which would include legal immigrants with criminal records, Politico explains.

Trump consistently promised previously to crack down on undocumented immigrants both throughout his campaign and since he assumed office. CBS News' Jeff Pegues previewed some of the memos' details on Monday. Tens of thousands of people took to the streets in more than a dozen Mexican cities last week to protest against the new president's plan for a border wall.
