Trump Immigration Plan: Poems About Immigration Detention Center
Posted On July 4, 2021
By MIKE MCCONNELL, AP Trump’s immigration plan to overhaul U.S. immigration policy and bring in more legal immigration is in jeopardy, as a judge blocked his plan from going into effect on Wednesday.
The U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees warned the plan could lead to “mass deportations” and deportations of thousands of people who have committed minor offenses and were released, according to a copy of the decision obtained by The Associated Press.
The judge’s ruling, which could have a huge impact on the policy changes being debated in Congress, came in a case filed in February by a U.K.-based nonprofit advocacy group that argued that the proposal violates the constitutional right to due process.
Trump has vowed to deport millions of undocumented immigrants, including some who have been in the U.A.E. for decades.
The administration argues that the policy would bring about an increase in deportations.
Critics have said the proposed policy would disproportionately target young, poor people and that it would be impossible to implement without Congress.
In the wake of the ruling, U.s.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement said it was working to ensure that any legal immigrants deported under the plan would not be eligible for a work permit.
The agency said in a statement it would “continue to work closely with the U,S.
government” to address the concerns of the judge.
The court’s ruling also blocked Trump’s proposed border wall, which critics said could deter people from coming to the U.-Mexico border.
