New Immigration Policy – Going Easier on Parents
Immigration agents will now be able to give more leniency to parents who end up in immigration custody. according an Obama administration policy directive released on Friday.
ICE will now have the ability to be easier on undocumented immigrants that have children in the US. Agents should now be able to consider whether the immigrant in custody has a family or not. Most of the people that do end up in ICE custody are often the sole providers for their families. If they do end up in detention it creates a financial burden to the family.
As mention in the article several weeks ago Sen. Marco Rubio warned if Repulicans do not take action on Comprehensive Immigration Reform, Obama would use his executive power to do so.
We, as many others, do hope that an agreement is reached.
