the law for those people who are not U.S. citizens and are facing criminal
With Donald Trump as President of the United States, law enforcement has
been ordered to focus on non-citizens who live in this country. The
Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Immigration and Customs
Enforcement (ICE) have been instructed to not only prioritize the deportation
of serious criminal offenders, but these agencies have also been ordered to
deport immigrants who commit low-level crimes. Arrests of immigrants with
no criminal history has nearly tripled in the last year under the Trump
Administration. And more frightening, even those immigrants with legal
residency papers may find themselves deported out of the country.
