Trumps new Immigration Executive Order means mass incarceration for the undocumented

Trump Immigration Enforcement Force

  Slate reported on January 25, 2017 on Trump's latest Executive Order on Immigration. While the mainstream media focusing on the "The Wall," Criminal Defense attorneys are focusing on the really scary parts for our clients.  Our clients range from people with speeding tickets, no driver's license to serious felony charges. I am sure people will say "good" get rid of the criminals but in Georgia a speeding ticket is a misdemeanor or a crime. Don't forget Georgia was originally a penal colony.

• Deportation will be prioritized for immigrants who have been convicted of a crime; been charged with a crime with an unresolved crime, engaged in fraud in any government application, abused welfare programs, have committed acts that could be a crime or in the discretion of an immigration officer pose a risk to public safety or national security. Have you driven over the speed limit or taken cash for work without reporting it to the IRS. In other words, immigration pogrom. 

• 5000 new border agents will be hired and 10,000 new immigration officers. 

• Local and state police will be empowered to enforce immigration laws. This means immigrants will be held in local jails until the Feds come and pick them up which may be years. Can you say unfunde
d federal mandate. 

• If local jurisdictions refused to enforce federal immigration detainers (otherwise known as a jail hold)  or are declared sanctuary cities will be put on shame list and have their federal funds cut off except for law enforcement. So much for the Republican tenet of State's rights and local control.

5. The Federal Deficit will be rising.
