 New study shows deportations don’t reduce crime
New study shows deportations don’t reduce crime
In 2008, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) introduced “Secure Communities,” which for the first time allowed DHS to check the fingerprints of any individual arrested by a local jurisdiction. Secure Communities piggybacked on prior DHS initiatives to use local police as “force multipliers” including the Criminal Alien Program, which establishes voluntary screening partnerships with local jails, which deputizes local law enforcement as immigration enforcement agents. In all, DHS’ underly....

Mexico's president spoke of the need for U.S. immigration reform on a two-day visit to immigrant-friendly California, saying those who reject diversity and inclusion will ultimately be proven wrong.

 Two years after being DACAmented Two years after being DACAmented
Before congressional Republicans left for recess last week, they set their sights on eliminating President Barack Obama's policy to protect undocumented young people from deportation. The bill that passed the House would have stripped protections from half a million young undocumented immigrants, often called Dreamers. But according to a report published as many as 980,000 Dreamers are still living without that relief entirely, suggesting work needs to be done to both protect the Deferred Acti....
