Trump administration eyes expanding DHS deportation powers: report

Written by  Joe Tacopino

The Trump administration is considering expanding the Department of Homeland Security’s powers to expedite deportations of some illegal immigrants, a ­report said Friday.

The new policy would affect those who cannot prove that they have lived in the country for more than 90 days, according to The Washington Post (paywall).

The new policy would affect those who cannot prove that they have lived in the country for more than 90 days, according to The Washington Post (paywall).

A DHS spokeswoman said, “The potential changes would allow DHS to more efficiently use resources to remove persons who have been illegally present for relatively brief periods of time while still observing due-process requirements.”

Why is there an exemption in the law that kicks in at 90 days? The entire Immigration and Nationality Act needs to be revised. If someone is here illegally they should be deported. We don't need a bunch of exceptions to the law that are there for no other purpose than to keep lawyers practicing immigration law employed.

Our immigration system is a sham because lawyers have made an art out using loopholes that should have been closed years ago.

90 days is 90 day get the hell out now if youre here illegally? No one asked you to come here? Therefore its the illegals problem he created themselves.

if they are here illegal then deport, doesn't matter if here 60 days or 90 or 5 years, if they are here illegally then deport. PERIOD

How can an illegal immigrant who is here against the law, maybe working here against the law or committing other crimes have "due process requirements?"

The Muslims in our country as refugees need to be deported back to their home countries immediately as well. Completely dismantle the refugee program. These people like the Muslim woman with ties to terrorist that has called for jihad against our President should have her hind end booted immediately. The CAIR members & Muslim Brotherhood should be declared as terrorist organizations, put on a watch list. If they make one misstep, rounded up, deported enmass immediately. All of the Mosques within our borders should be subject to search whenever the Feds suspect someone sneezed. There is no telling what or whom they are training in these religious (?) facilities. Thank God we now have a leader in our country that is making a difference. He is not aiding & abetting criminals nor is he turning a blind eye to what is going on our nation. He has really made a huge difference in the number of illegals in our country and he is not done yet. He has done this without any support from Congress whatsoever, in fact, they have fought against everything he has wanted to do.

Because, in this country, under our Constitution, you are ALWAYS presumed to be innocent until proven guilty. I want the Illegal Immigrants gone, but not without due process proving them guilty. The ones who come back need to go to prison before deportation.

This is not good enough. DHS needs to be able to deport American Born Terrorists such as Muslim Extremist Linda Sarsour.

Can't deport American born citizens. Deportation is intended for foreign born, US citizens are not included in this. It is unfortunate that as long as they just talk, which is a protected right, there is nothing legally that can be done, unless they are making specific threats against certain protected individuals. Making threats can be punishable, assuming that district attorneys, or United States Attorneys, will prosecute them. If they actually do a terrorist act, again, they cannot be deported, but they should be locked up and the key thrown away. They could be offered the possibility of renouncing their American Citizenship (if legal), and accept movement to another country to avoid incarceration or a minimal sentence. Not being a lawyer, I don't know if this can be done given our laws and constitution, but if it can be, then I propose that this is an alternative to get rid of the undesirable citizens who despise our country/way of life and work to overthrow it, a case of treason in my book.
