WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Gain CLE and learn how the latest immigration law and policy changes affect the client counsel you provide.
If your practice involved immigration law, you're no doubt aware that Trump administration officials are developing stronger procedures to vet individuals entering the United States in light of the Supreme Court's move to allow portions of President Trump's “travel ban.”
And at the street level, immigration arrests were up 38% in the first three months of the Trump administration compared with the same period last year. While President Donald Trump’s more attention-grabbing ideas have been blocked or stalled, the statistics released by federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) suggest that the more street-level aspects of his immigration agenda have achieved significant results. In the first 4 months of this year, ICE officers arrested 41,318 people, a rate of more than 400 people per day, compared with 30,028 over the same period in 2016.
