Comment: Implementing Discretion
ICE released a memo from Peter S. Vincent, ICE Principal Legal Advisor on implementing the prosecutorial discretion immigration enforcement policy announced by the Obama administration. ICE also released guidance on implementation of that policy. You can scroll down to read these publications in this issue of Immigration Daily. The New York Times reports "The Obama administration has removed high numbers of illegal immigrants, nearly 400,000 in each of the last three years. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Mr. Morton said those numbers would not decrease, but they wanted agents and courts to focus on deporting the worst offenders, including national security risks, criminal convicts and those who repeatedly violate immigration laws. Many immigration offenses, including being present in the United States without legal status, are civil violations; they are not crimes." Do you think that these publications indicate a real departure from the de facto administration policy of deporting record number of immigrants every year?
