- ICE express deportations: who does it affect?
- ICE’s new express deportation policy has three groups of immigrants in its sights.
- An Appeals Court in Washington DC ruled in favor of Donald Trump to deport undocumented migrants by fast track, so ICE is authorized to proceed across the country.
On June 23 of this year, an Appeals Court in Washington DC made up of three judges ruled in favor of Donald Trump in his proposal to deport undocumented migrants by fast track.
So, the Office of Immigration and Customs Control (ICE) has the authorization to proceed throughout the country with express deportations.
Immigrants are under the microscope again. But who are the groups that are at real risk of being deported outright, sometimes in less than two hours?
An ICE spokesperson confirmed to Telemundo News what is the new express deportation policy.
The Immigration and Customs Enforcement Service confirmed that its officers are already executing the express deportation policy, the outlet says.
The measure could affect some 10 million undocumented immigrants in the United States.
Of course, this news brings panic and fear in our community, which is once again terrified by the raids that send them to their countries of origin in “less than a rooster crows.”
ICE agents are empowered to remove immigrants in a matter of hours without going through an immigration judge. In addition, it must be taken into account that it applies to the entire country and not only to the border area and with a radius of less than 100 miles from the southern border, as has been done since 1996.
And who is mainly affected by this new Express Deportation policy?
