DHS draft proposal would speed deportations

Source: Politico

The Homeland Security Department is weighing a plan to bypass immigration courts and remove undocumented immigrants who cannot prove they’ve been present continuously in the U.S. for two years or more.

The proposal is described in a draft regulatory notice, according to two DHS officials and a third person familiar with the planning. If finalized, it would represent the latest escalation of President Donald Trump’s immigration crackdown.


The administration has considered since 2017 expanding a fast-track deportation procedure known as “expedited removal,” but thus far has refrained from moving ahead.

The draft notice — which remains under review — would increase significantly the number of recently arrived undocumented immigrants subject to rapid deportation. Under the current standard, expedited removal is applicable only to immigrants picked up within 14 days of arrival. The two-week cutoff stems from a 2004 regulatory change, not from the 1996 statute that created the process.

1. "... who cannot prove they've been present continuously in the U.S. for two years or more."

So much for the burden of proof.

7. not only that its a ridiculously hard thing to do.

I am a US citizen and I am sure I could not prove that I have been present continuously in the US.

How do I do that ? my electric bills ? thats not a proof. I could be paying it and living in venezuela or canada. Passport? not all americans have passport. What then ?

3. I was taught in high school that all persons on American soil are protected by The Constitution.

5. It's not that simple

most immigration cases are civil vice criminal matters which by their very nature are not as strict as criminal cases in regards to due process. And due process does not automatically mean a hearing with a judge in a court of law. The law is pretty black and white about the 2 year period and it's constitutionality has never been challenged.

It is morally wrong but probably not unconstitutional.
