DHS Announces Revised Removal Priorities
As part of President Obama’s proposed immigration executive actions, the Department of Homeland Security has announced revised removal priorities as applied to illegal immigrants. Among those illegal immigrants whom the DHS plans to focus their resources on removing are convicted felons, national security threats, immigrants apprehended at the border, and those who entered unlawfully after January 1, 2014. President Obama summarized these removal priorities by stating that the United States government would focus on deporting “felons, not families.”
