Trump Signs Orders That Would Allow Police Officers to Enforce Immigration Laws

President Donald Trump had a busy first week in office issuing a flurry of executive actions and orders to kick start his agenda, some of which flew under the radar of both the media and perpetually outraged liberals.

While most of the attention last Wednesday was focused on Trump’s orders authorizing construction of the border wall and efforts to crack down on sanctuary cities, ABC News reported that Trump also ordered the revival of an old program that had nearly been mothballed by the Obama administration.

The program permits the Department of Homeland Security to essentially “deputize” local law enforcement agents and officers to aid in enforcing federal immigration laws, such as by checking an individual’s immigration status through the course of routine contact, and certainly if they’ve been arrested or jailed in connection with sort of crime.

The program had more than 60 various police departments and sheriff’s offices enrolled as of 2009, but President Barack Obama’s administration rolled it back and limited it significantly, to the point that about half of the participants dropped out while the rest were consigned to simply check their local jails for violent violators of immigration laws who needed to be turned over to federal agents.

Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Arizona was perhaps the most well-known participant in the program, even as he was repeatedly harassed and sued for taking part in it.

To be sure, civil rights groups and immigration advocates have decried the program and stated that they believe it will inevitably lead to an increase in racial profiling or the rights of immigrants being violated, which is what they accused Arpaio of doing. However, other groups, like the Center for Immigration Studies, cheered the return of the “great program” that at one point accounted for nearly 20 percent of criminal deportations by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials, according to The Washington Post.

The Post also reported that Trump concurrently revived the Secure Communities program, a program both started and stopped under Obama that checked the fingerprints of everyone taken into custody by law enforcement across the U.S. against a federal database of immigration records, quickly identifying those individuals who needed to be handed over to the feds for deportation.

BizPac Review noted that several local law enforcement agencies have already jumped at the chance to enlist the services of their officers in aiding federal immigration agents, including the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office in Texas.

Jackson County Sheriff A.J. “Andy” Louderback estimated that it would cost his department roughly $3,000 to train a few of his deputies to take part in the program, but he wasn’t worried about the cost at all as he figured it would be money well-spent.

“It just seems like good law enforcement to partner with federal law enforcement in this area,” said Louderback. “It takes all of us to do this job.”

Indeed, it does take the cooperation of everyone on the federal, state and local level to effectively enforce immigration laws. This program should serve as a counter to those uncooperative jurisdictions across the nation that profess to be “sanctuaries” for illegal immigrants in violation of federal laws.

President Trump is correct in this action and I support him 100%

The media can say and try and report fake news all they want, the fact of the matter is , most Americans agree with the president despite what the media say's. American are tired of the bullshit. That's why Donald Trump was elected President( PERIOD)

Yeah, our state legislature here in Texas is currently hearing testimony on Senate Bill 4, which deals with the same issue. I hope they make the right choice and understand that it takes everyone to work together to make our nation secure.

Hillary Clinton says she is “deluged” with requests to try another run for president and has still not completely ruled out joining the crowded field of 2020 Democrat candidates.

The former U.S. Secretary of State has repeatedly avoided categorically stepping out of the race for the White House – or directly into it, for that matter.

During media appearances in the UK last month, Clinton twice hinted she may make a belated push on the basis she claims so many people want to see her on the national stage once more.

Speaking on the BBC’s Graham Norton Show in London last Friday, Clinton confirmed she would “have to make up my mind really quickly” if she was going to join the race.

When pushed to respond if she would make a run for the White House for a third time, she prevaricated and avoided a direct reply, instead responding with: “As I say, never, never, never say never.”

She did concede she would need to make up her mind “really quickly” about whether or not to jump into the presidential race.

Clinton has already missed the filing deadline for the first primary in New Hampshire but there is no deadline for the next caucuses in Iowa in early February.

Responding to Norton, Clinton said she had been “deluged” over the last few weeks thinking about running again, but added that, “right now, I’m not, at all, planning that.”

Norton asked: “The rumour mill is flying that you could step back into the ring.”

Clinton replied: “I hear that. I have been deluged the last few weeks with thinking about doing that, but right now I’m not at all planning that.”

Last month Clinton told BBC Radio 5 Live she was under “enormous pressure” to consider a 2020 White House run.

When asked about her future in politics, Clinton said, “I feel a sense of responsibility partly because you know my name was on the ballot, I got more votes, but ended up losing to the current incumbent in the White House who I think is really undermining our democracy in very fundamental ways. And I want to retire him.”

When asked if she is absolutely ruling it out, Clinton said, “ I will certainly tell you. I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it. But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans.”

Clinton and her daughter Chelsea, are currently in London promoting their new co-authored book – The Book Of Gutsy Women: Favourite Stories Of Courage And Resilience.
