IMMIGRATION ENFORCEMENT PRIORITY AND CRIMES

ImmigrationThere has been a lot of confusion among the immigration community with a recent update to the Immigration Enforcement Priorities.

A key difference in the new enforcement priorities from the enforcement outlined by former President Obama is that the previous enforcement priorities categorized crimes based on severity in order to utilize the available ICE resources as efficiently as possible. In the new order, the priorities include any offense, which could open the door to even traffic violations. It also includes those charged with a criminal offense which has not been resolved and acts that constitute chargeable criminal offense.
