Obama Easing on Immigrant Deportations Expected to Be Modest - Obama Easing on Immigrant Deportations Expected to Be Modest

From The Wall Street Journal:

The Obama administration's review of deportation policy is considering questions such as whether people without serious criminal records should continue to be removed from the U.S. and how to assure that immigration field officers curtail deportations of low-priority illegal immigrants, people familiar with the review say.

The result could be fewer deportations among the small slice of illegal immigrants who are settled in the U.S. and have minor or no criminal records but get snagged by law enforcement.

The union representing more than 7,000 ICE agents has opposed the administration's decision to prioritize the deportation of certain people, such as those with criminal records, and to provide safe harbor to other illegal immigrants. The union filed a lawsuit to try to stop the policy, and argued the agency had "abandoned theā€¦core mission of enforcing United States immigration laws and providing for public safety."
