Trump Wants Multibillion Dollar Budget Increase For Deportations
Federal immigration arrests — already up sharply since President Trump took office — could rise dramatically next year if Congress approves the administration’s multibillion-dollar budget proposal, the nation’s top enforcement official said Tuesday. “If you’re in this country illegally, and you committed a crime by entering this country, you should be uncomfortable,” Homan said. “You should look over your shoulder.
Trump’s Jan. 25 executive order broadened the pool of immigrants who could be targeted for deportation to include 345,000 fugitives with final deportation orders and 600,000 visa overstayers — individuals who Homan said had been essentially off-limits under President Barack Obama.
