    Trump takes step toward ending 'catch and release' immigration policy

    by Diana Stancy Correll
    | April 06, 2018 07:43 PM

    President Trump signed a memorandum on Friday seeking to take steps toward ending the “catch and release” immigration policy, a term that generally refers to the release of illegal immigrants as they wait for an immigration hearing.

    “Today, President Donald J. Trump signed a Presidential Memorandum to take important steps to end ‘catch and release,’ the dangerous practice whereby aliens who have violated our Nation’s immigration laws are released into the United States shortly after their apprehension,” the Office of White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. “The safety and security of the American people is the President’s highest priority, and he will keep his promise to protect our country and to ensure that our laws are respected.”

    “At the same time, the President continues to call on congressional Democrats to cease their staunch opposition to border security and to stop blocking measures that are vital to the safety and security of the United States,” the statement continued.

    The memorandum comes days after Trump condemned “catch and release” policies.

    “Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release,” Trump tweeted earlier this month. “Getting more dangerous. ‘Caravans’ coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!”

    Children and asylum-seekers are primarily the only immigrants who qualify for this type of release, although they are other cases where the practice may apply.

    Although Trump has blamed Democrats for the practice, “catch and release” first started during President George W. Bush's administration after U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement did not have the capacity to hold all undocumented immigrants in custody.

    Trump’s memo issued Friday demands a "detailed list of all existing facilities, including military facilities, that could be used, modified, or repurposed to detain aliens for violations of immigration law at or near the borders of the United States."

    Homeland Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar are ordered to submit a report within 45 days to Trump “detailing all measures that their respective departments have pursued or are pursuing to expeditiously end ‘catch and release’ practices.”

    An update with additional resources must be provided within 75 days.

    Additionally, the State Department and Homeland Security must submit a report to Trump detailing all measures “being pursued against countries that refuse to expeditiously accept the repatriation of their nationals” within 60 days.

    Trump has ramped up efforts this week to secure the U.S. border with Mexico.

    Earlier this week, the Trump administration announced that 2,000 to 4,000 National Guard troops would be sent to the southern Border an attempt to heighten border security.

    Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One Thursday that “we’ll probably keep them or a large portion” of the National Guard troops at the border until the erection of a border wall.

    Trump has long advocated for the construction a wall along the southern border and has turned up the heat on lawmakers to find funding for the project.

    The omnibus bill he signed last month included $1.6 billion in funding for the wall, although Trump had originally wanted $25 billion designated for the project.

    The obama decree of Jan 2010 to catch and release - the directive memo sent out by ICE chief john morton ordered that any alien who enters a "credible fear" claim must be released into the interior of the United States if "the alien poses neither a flight risk nor a danger to the community, and no additional factors weigh against the release of the alien." The memo also orders ICE agents to grant parole to the illegal aliens, protecting them from future enforcement efforts until their case is heard.

    NO POLITICIAN RAISED A BEEF @ THIS?????? We are talking 8yrs of this very expensive nonsense. They all should be prosecuted with obama arrested first. Get john boehner, mccain, mr open borders ryan, all of them that sat on their butts, collected a salary and endangered our lives with drugs and gang members. And they fight over the budget - don't want to pay for this that but will pay billions yearly for dangerous scum from south of the border.

    The Morton Memo of Jan. 4, 2010 has yet to be rescinded by the Trump Administration

    WHAT IS TRUMP WAITING FOR????????

    The "fear" crowd can apply for a work permit 150 days after filing an asylum claim. This is all @ cheap labor. This has all been planned.

    We have jobs for them? Guess so with the lowest wage possible whilst Americans pay for their schooling, healthcare, dental, ESL courses and money in their pockets. And next their anchor babies.

    No one advised trump all he has to do is rescind the morton memo? UNREAL. He has a bunch of traitors to America working for him along with our crooked beholden to industry politicians.

    trump needs to pay attention to these utmost priority issues & get honest, knowledgeable people to advise him. kelly preventing trump from talking with staff is not a help but a hindrance. And kelly is not for us but against us; he could be a plant. Keeping trump in the dark so we can be super flooded with foreigners. kelly don't want to straighten it out, didn't when at DHS and not now in the wh position either. His buddy lady daca, the same - "I have to let them in". No one tells trump rescind the memo???? Sorry but something is very fishy here.

    Now he has us with continuous surges and they are all getting in. 13mths on top of obama's 8yrs of catch and release. Plus they are coming from all @ the world, just like these lousy rotten soros' directed politicians wanted.

    Rescind the memo and E-verify every job NOW! Get something done other than signing memos to rescind the Clean Water Act and 67 other environmental rules so your rich buddies can make more money and Americans can get sicker.

    All this crap with border should have been done day one and done right. trump messed up big time and now we have hundreds of thousands more unwanted & dangerous drains in our country. The costs are in the mega billions. And they want to cut medicare for seniors??? Won't pay for this that when it comes to our own citizens.

    Trump Orders Halt to ‘Catch and Release,’ But There’s a Catch

    By Katherine McIntire Peters
    January 25, 2017

    Among the long list of directives included in the executive order President Trump signed on Wednesday on border security and immigration enforcement was a provision to end the practice known as “catch and release.”

    Specifically, the order directs the secretary of Homeland Security to “immediately take all appropriate actions to ensure” that any non-citizens caught in the country in violation of immigration law be apprehended until they can be deported:

    “The Secretary shall issue new policy guidance to all Department of Homeland Security personnel regarding the appropriate and consistent use of lawful detention authority under the INA, including the termination of the practice commonly known as "catch and release," whereby aliens are routinely released in the United States shortly after their apprehension for violations of immigration law.

    It sounds simple enough, but it’s a problem lawmakers and Homeland Security officials have struggled to cope with for more than a dozen years. Back in 2004, Government Executive highlighted the myriad challenges inherent in arresting and detaining immigrants, adjudicating their cases and then deporting them. It takes a lot of skilled personnel—law enforcement officers; detention facility operators; immigration judges, of which there is a severe shortage; and a deportation force—all of which costs a lot of money.

    In October 2005, then DHS Secretary Michael Chertoff noted that parts of the immigration control system had “nearly collapsed under the weight of the numbers” (at the time, 80 percent of non-Mexicans apprehended at the border were released because there was simply no place to put them. Twelve years before Trump signed today’s executive order, Chertoff called for an end to catch and release, promising to replace it with a "catch and return" policy:

    "Our goal at DHS is to completely eliminate the 'catch and release' enforcement problem, and return every single illegal entrant—no exceptions," Chertoff said.

    That obviously didn’t happen. DHS has never had the workforce or the budget to adequately enforce immigration laws given the department's many other responsibilities. Whether the Trump administration will succeed where others have failed—which means prodding Congress to appropriate more money for administrative law judges, detention facilities and law enforcement personnel—is yet to be seen. But it will take more than the stroke of a pen to end catch and release.

    Trump did everything he needed to do as President to end "Catch and Release", on January 25, 2017, on his third day in office. When he issued the Executive Order on immigration policy, including ending Catch and Release, it over-rides all prior memos to the contrary. So anyone releasing an illegal alien without a court order or statute to the contrary is violating the Executive Order.

    Trump has issued another Executive Order on this problem today, hopefully, in a few months, the problems associated with this policy can be resolved. Compliance with the original Trump EO on this has run into legal problems due to loopholes requiring statutory changes through Congress, detention issues due to lack of facilities and space and funding to pay for them, and failure to promptly process deportation orders out of DOJ due to faulty procedures and protocols employed by DOJ immigration judges.

    Panera Bread can fresh-prepare a complex soup, salad, sandwich, drink and dessert from the time the order is taken and hand delivered to the customer in ... 3 minutes.

    An immigration judge has two questions to ask of an illegal alien at a deportation hearing:

    1. are you a citizen of the US (yes or no, verify)
    2. if no, do you have valid, unexpired documents to be in the US (yes or no, verify)

    If no and no, then out you go.

    This should take no more than 1 minute or less per case, 60 or more per hour, 500 or more per day, 2500 a week, 10,000 a month, 120,000 a year per judge before over-time. This is the quota that should be employed for deportation hearings, at the time of arrest and detention, and the deportation order issued immediately.

    Jeff Sessions just implemented a quota system for immigration judges to have a satisfactory rating of 700 per year per judge instead of 120,000. These judges are taking a year to do what should be done in a day.

    The problem with lawyers and judges being involved in high production-required operations is that they have no sense of numbers, simplicity, relevancy or timing.

    Recommendation: hire 2,000 fast food workers who are US citizens with at least 2 years of college and tell them you want this back-log in DOJ cleared out by September. And I'd bet my last dollar they can do that ahead of schedule, under budget and without error.

    All you need to know to issue a deportation order is the person is not a US citizen and has no documents to be in the United States. That's it, if no citizenship and no documents, you are a certified deportable illegal alien and you've gotta go. Period.

    If he did everything he could we would not have the last 13 months of hundreds of thousands more from south of the border and everywhere else. He didn't rescind the memo that caused it all - did no one tell him that was the move? Did anyone around him know that? What kind of professionals are @ him that he was not told to do this immediately?
    He needs to keep his eye on the ball and get things done as promised. He spent his time trying to amnesty daca, that is what he did while catch & release was continuing. Not buying any of the blah-blah excuses.

    PRESIDENTIAL MEMORANDA

    Presidential Memorandum for the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, the Attorney General, the Secretary of Health and Human Services, and the Secretary of Homeland Security

    IMMIGRATION

    Issued on: April 6, 2018

    SUBJECT: Ending “Catch and Release” at the Border of the United States and Directing Other Enhancements to Immigration Enforcement

    Section 1. Purpose. (a) Human smuggling operations, smuggling of drugs and other contraband, and entry of gang members and other criminals at the border of the United States threaten our national security and public safety. The backlog of immigration-related cases in our administrative system is alarmingly large and has hindered the expeditious adjudication of outstanding cases. Border-security and immigration enforcement personnel shortages have become critical.

    (b) In Executive Order 13767 of January 25, 2017 (Border Security and Immigration Enforcement Improvements), I directed the Secretary of Homeland Security to issue new policy guidance regarding the appropriate and consistent use of detention authority under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), including the termination of the practice known as “catch and release,” whereby aliens are released in the United States shortly after their apprehension for violations of our immigration laws. On February 20, 2017, the Secretary issued a memorandum taking steps to end “catch and release” practices. These steps have produced positive results. Still, more must be done to enforce our laws and to protect our country from the dangers of releasing detained aliens into our communities while their immigration claims are pending.

    Therefore, by the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby direct as follows:

    Sec. 2. Ending “Catch and Release”. (a) Within 45 days of the date of this memorandum, the Secretary of Homeland Security, in coordination with the Secretary of Defense, the Attorney General, and the Secretary of Health and Human Services, shall submit a report to the President detailing all measures that their respective departments have pursued or are pursuing to expeditiously end “catch and release” practices. At a minimum, such report shall address the following:

    (i) All measures taken pursuant to section 5(a) of Executive Order 13767 to allocate all legally available resources to construct, operate, control, or modify — or establish contracts to construct, operate, control, or modify — facilities to detain aliens for violations of immigration law at or near the borders of the United States;

    (ii) All measures taken pursuant to section 5(b) of Executive Order 13767 to assign asylum officers to immigration detention facilities for the purpose of accepting asylum referrals and conducting credible fear determinations and reasonable fear determinations;

    (iii) All measures taken pursuant to section 6 of Executive Order 13767 to ensure the detention of aliens apprehended for violations of immigration law;

    (iv) All measures taken pursuant to section 11(a) of Executive Order 13767 to ensure that the parole and asylum provisions of Federal immigration law are not illegally exploited to prevent the removal of otherwise removable aliens;

    (v) All measures taken pursuant to section 11(b) of Executive Order 13767 to ensure that asylum referrals and credible fear determinations pursuant to section 235(b)(1) of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1125(b)(1)) and 8 CFR 208.30, and reasonable fear determinations pursuant to 8 CFR 208.31, are conducted in a manner consistent with those provisions;

    (vi) All measures taken pursuant to section 6 of Executive Order 13768 of January 25, 2017 (Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States), to ensure the assessment and collection of all authorized fines and penalties from aliens unlawfully present in the United States and from those who facilitate their unlawful presence in the United States;

    (vii) A detailed list of all existing facilities, including military facilities, that could be used, modified, or repurposed to detain aliens for violations of immigration law at or near the borders of the United States; and

    (viii) The number of credible fear and reasonable fear claims received, granted, and denied — broken down by the purported protected ground upon which a credible fear or reasonable fear claim was made — in each year since the beginning of fiscal year 2009.

    (b) Within 75 days of the date of this memorandum, the Attorney General and the Secretary of Homeland Security, in consultation with the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of Health and Human Services, shall submit a report to the President identifying any additional resources or authorities that may be needed to expeditiously end “catch and release” practices.

    Sec. 3. Return of Removable Aliens to Their Home Countries or Countries of Origin. Within 60 days of the date of this memorandum, the Secretary of State and the Secretary of Homeland Security shall submit a report to the President detailing all measures, including diplomatic measures, that are being pursued against countries that refuse to expeditiously accept the repatriation of their nationals. The report shall include all measures taken pursuant to section 12 of Executive Order 13768 to implement the sanctions authorized by section 243(d) of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1253(d)), or a detailed explanation as to why such sanctions have not yet been imposed.

    Sec. 4. General Provisions. (a) Nothing in this memorandum shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:

    (i) the authority granted by law to an executive department or agency, or the head thereof; or

    (ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.

    (b) This memorandum shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

    (c) This memorandum is not intended to, and does not, create any right or benefit, substantive or procedural, enforceable at law or in equity by any party against the United States, its departments, agencies, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

    (d) The Secretary of State is hereby authorized and directed to publish this memorandum in the Federal Register.

    Hope this one holds up. Not just good for toilet paper like the 1st one and the muslim country ban. Both not written right & didn't hold up in court.

    Why not just rescind obama's directive that started catch and release?Why not just direct an end to this con game just like obama directed to let them in? If the preceding trump memo meant anything, we would not still be letting in tens of thousands from south of the border each month and "catch & release" as usual. trump has heightened the magnet not removed it.

    Oh the budget, the budget - 16yrs & trump's 13months, = mega billions paid out for this disgraceful Morton memo, then lack of proper action to rescind this memo. Too busy trying to get daca, and more than even are signed up, AMNESTY.

    trump loves obama's directives - he fights hard for daca and hasn't fought enough to rescind catch & release or to push congress to change the trafficking bills to do away with this fear scam - no he continues to reauthorize & FUND THEM. Illegals aren't going anywhere. Almost 6million anchor babies and growing everyday - each one paid for by American citizens.
