Trump Says Morgan Will Head US Immigration Enforcement Agency

The information we uncovered through our lawsuit shows that CBP and ICE are asserting near-unfettered authority to search and seize travelers' devices at the border, for purposes far afield from the enforcement of immigration and customs laws. The groups also say, citing deposition testimony by an ICE official, that the agency claims the authority to search people's devices for information about other people, including sources of journalists and scholars as well as people's business partners, relatives, and other associates.

Barr's decision, which was his first related to immigration since he took office, would not now apply to unaccompanied minors or asylum-seeking families facing deportation, as current rules mandate that they can not be held for longer than 20 days, as per the 1997 Flores Settlement Agreement. "It is going to be limited in scope, limited in time to test whether or not the issue of claims of fake family units", an official said.

Almost 190,000 people entered the country in family units without immigration documents between October and March, according to Customs and Border Protection statistics.

DNA testing of some migrants who cross the U.S. -Mexico border and claim to be family could start as early as next week, but it is unclear if the pilot program will come to Arizona. But most Central American migrants fleeing general violence and corruption ultimately do not qualify for asylum. Per the memo, Trump also seeks to charge asylum seekers a fee for applications and work permit applications.

Collectively, the ACLU and its allies are asking the court to ensure that the White House can't interfere with detainees' "right to apply for protection by delaying credible fear interviews and by subjecting them to lengthy detention without prompt bond hearings". The union that represents border patrol agents had criticized Morgan for supporting Obama's plans to protect certain undocumented immigrants from deportation.

Stephen Legomsky, a former USCIS chief counsel said that asylum seekers who arrive in the United States without documents to prove their persecution back home have to rely on their own testimony.

ICE officials say they have identified 101 possible instances of fraudulent families since April 18 and determined one-third were fraudulent. "Those calls usually take two to five years due to the current 900,000 cases waiting to be decided by fewer than 500 immigration judges nationwide".

"You have people coming up, they are all met by the lawyers", he said, "and they say, say the following phrase, "I'm very afraid for my life". and then I look at the guy, he looks like he just got out of the ring, he's the heavyweight champion of the world".

On April 24, Trump reiterated that he would close part of the southern border if Mexico doesn't block what he described as a new caravan of migrants headed north.

Moreover, restricting access to work permits will discourage the abuse of the asylum process by migrants who simply want to take advantage of the superior economic opportunities that the USA offers, freeing up resources for processing those who have legitimate claims to access our generous asylum protections.

"President Trump is committed to working with the Congress to enact legislation that will give our Nation a secure, coherent, rational, and merit-based immigration system", Vought concluded in his letter.
