Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary John Kelly confirmed Sunday that federal immigration authorities won’t shy away from arresting illegal immigrants who would have been ignored under the Obama administration.Illegals in the news.
New categories of criminal aliens will be targeted for deportation, not just those who’ve committed headline-grabbing crimes like rape and murder, Kelly said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”
“Someone, as an example, with multiple DUIs,” he said, is the kind of illegal immigrant that would draw attention from immigration authorities. “Even a single DUI, depending on other aspects, would get you into the system,” he added.
Responding to questions from Todd about what constitutes a “criminal” under President Donald Trump’s immigration enforcement policies, Kelly said DHS now considers illegal aliens with any type of criminal background as a priority for removal.
