    For the Second Week in a Row, Trump Administration Announces New Plans to Target Migrant and Asylum-Seeking Families

    Pin It

    For the second week in a row, the Trump administration has announced new plans to target migrant and asylum-seeking families. Tomorrow, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is expected to publish a rule in the U.S. Federal Register that would expand Expedited Removal (ER). ER currently allows border officials within 100 miles of the U.S. border to detain and deport undocumented immigrants who have been in the country fewer than two years – without affording them a hearing in front of an immigration judge. The new rule would expand that policy nationwide. There will be no public comment period.
