New Department of Homeland Security Policies: Implementing the President’s Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements Policies

DHS Secretary John F. Kelly issued a new policy memo that 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.

This memorandum implements the Executive Order entitled “Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements,” issued by the President on January 25, 2017, which establishes the President’s policy regarding effective border security and immigration enforcement through faithful execution of the laws of the United States. It implements new policies designed to stem illegal immigration and facilitate the detection, apprehension, detention, and removal of aliens who have no lawful basis to enter or remain in the United States. It constitutes guidance to all Department personnel , and supersedes all existing conflicting policy, directives, memoranda , and other guidance regarding this subject matter, except as otherwise expressly stated in this memorandum.
