DHS Memos Detail More Aggressive Fight Against Undocumented Immigrants

Homeland Security released two memos on Tuesday that address how federal authorities will implement two executive orders on border security and immigration law enforcement, Business Insider reports.

President Trump signed the executive orders in January.

Federal authorities will now have more power to detain and deport undocumented immigrants. The memos also called for “expired removal” in an attempt to bypass court proceedings.

The memos also indicate Border Patrol and ICE may hire 10,000 officers and agents.

White House press secretary, Sean Spicer, said the memos satisfied “another major campaign promise of the president.”

The memos indicate that an increase in apprehension at the border has “significantly strained DHS resources.”

“The surge of illegal immigration at the southern border has overwhelmed federal agencies and resources and has created a significant national security vulnerability to the United States,” Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly wrote in the memos.

“Thousands of aliens apprehended at the border, placed in removal proceedings, and released from custody have absconded and failed to appear at their removal hearings.”
