Trump Shifted Focus to Non-Criminal Immigrants

Trump Shifted Focus to Non-Criminal Immigrants

But immigration advocates have warned that the damage has already been done, asserting instances like this one will create more anxiety for immigrants who are already fearful of arrest under the Trump administration's current crackdown. And ICE agents who were previously told only to target people who were high priorities for removal - drug dealers, gang members, and the like - are more likely to sweep up people who have no involvement with their ostensible targets.

Arrests from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents increased by 76 percent previous year across Florida, which was more than anywhere else in the country.

When officers arrived, they discovered Macarreno is an undocumented immigrant and also has an outstanding warrant for a non-criminal offense.

Despite the overall rise in arrests in 2017, ICE made about twice as many arrests in fiscal 2009, the year Obama came into office (297,898). This category of people includes those facing charges and those with no criminal records at all. It is become a sticking point for critics who argue that Trump is waging war on peaceful immigrants and encouraging ICE to meet his deportation goals, no matter what the cost.

While the department did not issue an apology over the incident, it said in an updated post that its officers will no longer be responding to administrative warrants issued by ICE or collaborate with the agency.

A Virginia mother was sent back to El Salvador in June after her 11 years in the United States unraveled because of a traffic stop.

Last week King 5 reported on a man who called police for help and ended up in ICE custody. And an immigration activist in New York, Ravi Ragbir, was detained in January in a case that brought ICE a scathing rebuke from a federal judge.

Rodriguez came to the USA from Honduras in 2004 to escape violence, his attorney said. "If you violate the laws of this country, if you enter illegally - which is a crime - it's not going to be okay anymore", he said recently.

Immigrants whose only crime was living in the country illegally were largely left alone during the latter years of the Obama administration. Once-routine appointments now can end with the immigrants in handcuffs.

Under President Barack Obama, ICE focused its enforcement efforts more narrowly by prioritizing arrests on those convicted of serious crimes.

Trump officials have likened this to taking "the shackles off", and they say morale at ICE is up because its officers have regained the authority to detain anyone they suspect of being in the country illegally.
