DHS Secretary Gives Sweeping New Guidelines for Deporting Illegals

Excerpted from The Washington Post:

Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly has signed sweeping new guidelines that empower federal authorities to more aggressively detain and deport illegal immigrants inside the United States and at the border.

In a pair of memos, Kelly offered more detail on plans for the agency to hire thousands of additional enforcement agents, expand the pool of immigrants who are prioritized for removal, speed up deportation hearings and enlist local law enforcement to help make arrests.

The new directives would supersede nearly all of those issued under previous administrations, Kelly said, including measures from President Barack Obama aimed at focusing deportations exclusively on hardened criminals and those with terrorist ties.


Kelly also said the agency will try to expand partnerships with municipal law enforcement agencies that deputize local police to act as immigration officers for the purposes of enforcement.

The program, known as 287(g), was signed into law by the Clinton administration and grew markedly under President George W. Bush’s tenure. It fell out of favor under the Obama administration.

Currently 32 jurisdictions in 16 states participate in the program, according to Kelly’s memo.

Kelly called the program a “highly successful force multiplier,” and instructed his deputies to expand it “to the greatest extent practical.”


In a series of executive actions in January, President Trump announced plans to make good on his campaign promises to build a wall on the border with Mexico and to ramp up enforcement actions against the nation’s estimated 11 million unauthorized immigrants. Kelly’s memos, which have not been released publicly, are intended as an implementation blueprint for DHS, formally establishing the new policies and directing agency employees to begin following them.

However, many specifics of achieving the goals of Trump’s executive orders remain unclear. For example, Kelly’s memos direct federal officials to seek all available funding for the border wall, but most of the funds, estimated at more than $20 billion, must be appropriated by Congress.

There’s more…

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, which represents federal agents and officers, had not seen the memos as of Saturday afternoon. In an interview, he said his organization fully supports the Trump administration’s agenda on border security.

Judd said he thinks the effort to crack down on enforcement is already paying dividends. He said that apprehensions of unauthorized immigrants in the Rio Grande Valley in Texas, one of the heaviest traveled areas of the border, have fallen by about 1,000 between the first two weeks of January and first two weeks of February.

Those figures could not be independently corroborated by The Washington Post.

Judd attributed the purported decline to fear among immigrants of the new Trump administration policies, including requirements that those who are apprehended will not be released before their immigration court hearings.

“They’re heading in the right direction,” Judd said.


Alrighty then.  Stopping illegals and removing them from the USA was a main campaign promise that got Trump elected.  Good to see he’s keeping his promises.

Now local law enforcement will have the legal authority to apprehend and detain illegals.  Cool!  This is part of their oath anyway… the part about defending the United States from all enemies, foreign or domestic.

If you are here illegally the GET OUT and STAY OUT.  If you want to live here, get in line like millions of immigrants before you.  Learn the language.  Assimilate and become American.  

Meanwhile, lefty heads are exploding.  Bwhahahhahaha  

Winning feels good!

    If any lefties protest, hand them a photo of little Elian Gonzales with a rifle in his face held by a jack booted government thug.
    Hey, you were okay with this, back then, weren’t you?
    Then STFU.

    • Just throwing this out there – wasn’t Elian Gonzales a custody battle? I’m just asking- for clarity, of course.

      IMHO; What SHOULD be brought forward, and ingrained in the public psyche, are the pictures of AMERICANS killed by illegals – Kate Steinle, et al…

      AMERICANS – killed by ILLEGALS – is what this administration is focusing on and these liberal IDIOTS don’t, and willfully won’t, GET IT until one of their own is slaughtered by a foreigner who should NEVER have been here in the first place.

      It behooves me to wonder what part of “doesn’t belong here” they just don’t comprehend. It’s far beyond stupid – it’s suicidal. And, if that’s the case, grab some rope, some razor blades or some Fentanyl-laced heroin and have at it!

      Spare me/us the grief of having to explain, over and over again, where you’re too mentally deficient, too delusional or too drugged to grasp reality.

      I’m all out of “give-a-shits”, “rat’s asses” or sympathies to hand out. And I’m NOT re-ordering, either! Let the liberals lie where they’re run over by the patriot’s bus!

      • SafeSpace says:

        Nominaly, Elian Gonzales WAS a custody battle … but in reality it was a chance to reward the Brothers Castro. Go back and look at how that story was played in the MSM.

        • I watched this play out but thought the root cause was a custody issue.
          Politics and news, like nitroglycerin, is a very dangerous tool and the MS should be very careful how they handle it.

    lol The new DHS sheriff is wheels up and rolling! Go Trump and Kelly! Amazing what gets done when patriots are in charge.

  3. clyde says:

    Never understood how liberals think being against ILLEGAL aliens coming in here is the same as LEGAL immigration.

    • Hardnox says:

      I got into a argument with a lefty college professor recently and asked the same question. She explained that they don’t believe in borders of any kind. I asked her if she had doors on her house and if she locked them. She walked away from me. 🙂

      • Funny you said that and funny how they have no redress to that question…Logic, to a liberal, is as Holy Water to vampires.
        I’ve asked a similar question many a time only, not asking about the door, I ask “why the lock” on that door? I don’t give them a chance at rebuttal claiming weather concerns.

        • Hardnox says:

          It’s typical. Lefties possess no ability for logic and reason. It’s all about feelings. never mind the outcome or consequences. When their shitty ideas turn to shit they never take the blame but instead claim that we’re not doing it right. Assholes.

  4. “I would never say that they aren’t nice people…”

    “Nice people” DON’T break laws, no matter how small. “Nice” people OBEY laws no matter how inconvenient.
    I’ve known drug dealers who are “nice people” – they’re still CRIMINALS!

    No offense but let’s drop this gray area “ya-but” bullshit and call it like it is!

  5. Shar says:

    I like the idea of fines. Put the money in a kitty toward the wall or law enforcement.
    They also need to change anchor baby status. Born to an illegal your kid is illegal.

  6. Popular Front says:

    Nothing at all wrong with those new rules as I see them. Looks like sensible government policy to me.

  7. SafeSpace says:

    The coolest thing about John Kelly’s approach IMHO is thst he is basing it on EXISTING law. Many of us have pointed out that America really does not need much, if any, new immigration law. We simply need to enforce laws already on the books. And that would enforcing existing laws that require the curtailment of federal funds that go to so-called sanctuary cities, states, and college campuses.

    • Popular Front says:

      This is all part of the Left’s subversive Long March through government policies and administration methods. Subtly they ignore or marginalise those aspects they don’t like, leading to breakdowns in law & order and social cohesion and creating Baltimore-style situations they can then exploit.

  8. vonMesser says:

    What they need to do is every single time, and with every single deportation under this program is say “PER LEGISLATION SIGNED BY DEMOCRAT WILLIAM J CLINTON……..”
