ICE is overwhelmed by massive deportation caseloads as they as they try to keep up with POTUS Donnie’s initiative. Yes go after the criminal element, but to some all illegal immigrants are criminal even though POTUS has changed course on the “DREAMer” element- PB/TK
Trump wants to expand deportations, but a report finds ICE already falling behind – Daniel González
President Trump has ordered federal immigration authorities to expand deportations, but a new report casts doubt on Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s ability to carry out the new administration’s objective.
The report by the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Inspector General found that ICE does a poor job managing the deportation of immigrants who are no longer detained. As a result, deportation officers are so overwhelmed with the cases they already have, they have lost track of immigrants, including some criminals who could have been deported.
ICE will likely have trouble keeping up with even more deportation cases, the report concludes.
“These management deficiencies and unresolved obstacles make it difficult for ICE to deport aliens expeditiously,” the report said. “ICE is almost certainly not deporting all the aliens who could be deported and will likely not be able to keep up with growing numbers of deportable aliens.”
