Immigration overhaul to focus on criminal charges

Posted on January 16th, 2012 No Comments

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has enacted a new policy in which federal immigration authorities will drop deportation cases against illegal immigrants who do not have criminal backgrounds.

Many cases against students, veterans, and other illegal immigrants with close family ties to the United States will be dropped so ICE can focus on deporting individuals with criminal histories. A pilot project of the policy in Denver resulted in 10 to 15 percent of the deportation cases being dismissed.

Federal immigration authorities are instructed to prioritize their deportation cases by focusing on individuals who have repeatedly violated immigration laws or have played the system.
