The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) under John Kelly’s lead is moving swiftly in its efforts to begin the deportation process of illegal immigrants presently in our country.
According to a report in the Washington Post, Kelly put forward a draft memo on Saturday that is being reviewed by the White House.
In his memo, Kelly suggests expanding federal authority and allows agents to work faster and better at deporting illegal aliens. Reportedly, Kelly stated in his new guidelines: “The surge of immigration at the southern border has overwhelmed federal agencies and resources and has created a significant national security vulnerability to the United States.”
Kelly’s memo lists a number of new actions, including outlines for local law enforcement to work with the federal agency.
The procedures outlined would allow authorities to push for expedited deportation proceedings for illegal aliens who have been in the U.S. for up to two years, compared to the current timeframe of two weeks or less.
Another item in Kelly’s memo calls for prosecution of parents of unaccompanied minors from foreign countries who have paid to have their children smuggled into America.
Kelly also suggests a new feature that would allow the U.S. to send Mexicans apprehended at the border immediately back to Mexico to await a pending deportation hearing, instead of keeping them in the U.S. in detention facilities while awaiting court action.
