    White House budget director Mick Mulvaney says that Democratic negotiators on a massive spending bill need to agree to fund top priorities of President Donald Trump such as a down payment on a border wall and hiring of additional immigration agents. Mulvaney told The Associated Press in an interview that "elections have consequences" and that "we want wall funding" as part of the catchall spending bill, which lawmakers hope to unveil next week. The former GOP congressman from South Carolina also said that the administration is open, though undecided, about a key Democratic demand that the measure pay for cost-sharing...

    The plummeting number of unauthorized crossings from Mexico may allow the Trump administration to focus more energy on deporting undocumented immigrants already living here, former immigration officials say. Since President Donald Trump took office, the number of unauthorized crossings have dropped to a 45-year low. If those numbers stay down, it could mean that Immigration and Customs Enforcement will see a sizable chunk of its workload evaporate, even as the White House demands the agency hire another 10,000 agents.

    In what Attorney General Jeff Sessions is heralding “a new era,” the Justice Department is prioritizing criminal prosecution of illegal immigrants and smugglers to support the Trump’ administration’s immigration enforcement plan — directing prosecutors to bring felony charges against those caught in the U.S. after a prior deportation. The new enforcement priorities will end the “catch and release practices” of the Obama administration and expand the department’s role in the Trump administration’s plan to crack down on illegal immigration, Mr. Sessions said Tuesday during a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona. The guidance issued by Mr. Sessions orders federal...

The Freedom Cities Campaign is a challenge to President Donald Trump’s travel ban on refugees and his administration’s immigration enforcement in the country. Chelsea Police Chief Ed Toth attended the meeting and said that the local police do not knock on people’s doors or look in the phone book for foreign names. “When we go to a car accident for example,...

    Helen Beristain voted for Donald Trump even though she is married to an undocumented immigrant. In November, she thought Trump would deport only people with criminal records -- people he called "bad hombres" -- and that he would leave families intact. "I don't think ICE is out there to detain anyone and break families, no," Beristain told CNN affiliate WSBT in March, shortly after her husband, Roberto Beristain was detained by US Immigration and Customs Enforcement. In a statement to CNN, ICE said, "On April 4, 2017, officers with US Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO)...

  • DHS: Illegal immigration fewest number of monthly arrests at border in 17 years

    John Kelly says in written testimony submitted to a Senate panel that fewer than 12,500 people were caught crossing the border last month. That compares with more than 43,000 who were detained in February. It’s the lowest monthly figure in at least 17 years. Kelly says the decrease is “no accident” and credits President Donald Trump’s approach to illegal immigration. The Trump administration has not yet changed how the border is patrolled, but the president’s tough talk on immigration and arrests of immigrants living in the country illegally have likely acted as deterrents. Illegal immigration across the U.S.-Mexico border has...
