President Trump and the new administration in Washington have promised to hire 10,000 new Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) agents, 5,000 new border patrol officers and 125 new immigration judges to enforce the new executive orders dealing with immigration. The increased enforcement will permit expedited deportation of many immigrants who have been in the United States for less than 2 years. In fact, many immigrants may be deported in less than 48 hours after being taken into custody. In light of this new policy, there are four things that every immigrant needs to do.
1. Make A Family Preparation Plan
2. Know What To Do If The Police Or An Immigration Officer Stops You On The Street
3. Know What To Do If The Police Or An Immigration Officer Comes To Your House
4. Know What To Do If You Are Arrested Because Of An Immigration Issue
