ICE Enforcement of POTUS EO

According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, effective immediately, ICE will direct its personnel as well as its state and local partners through the 287(g) program to apply the enforcement priorities outlined in President Trump’s recent executive order. Under this Executive Order, ICE will not exempt classes or categories of removal aliens from potential enforcement. All of those in violation of the immigration laws may be subject to immigration arrest, detention and, if found removable by final order, removal from the United States. DHS plans that within 180 days, ICE will carry out a number of actions to implement the enforcement priorities stated in the executive order. Some of those actions include, but are not limited to, conducting targeted enforcement operations and allocating resources to work in jurisdictions with violent crime tied to gang activities.
