Trump Signs Memo Ending “Catch And Release” For Illegal Aliens

The policy really should be “catch, detain, and deport”

(Daily Caller) A memorandum signed by President Trump on Friday could be the beginning of the end for America’s longstanding “catch and release” policy at the border.

The memo gives the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies 45 days to detail “all measures that their respective departments have pursued or are pursuing to expeditiously end ‘catch and release’ practices,” according to The Hill.

In addition to other measures, the departments are also supposed to provide “a detailed list of all existing facilities, including military facilities, that could be used, modified, or repurposed to detain aliens for violations of immigration law at or near the borders of the United States.”

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have also been directed to identify additional means “that may be needed to expeditiously end ‘catch and release’ practices.”

Catch and release has mostly ended up being “catch, release, and see them fail to show up for their hearing, having disappeared into America.”

From The Hill article, we see this from press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders

“The safety and security of the American people is the President’s highest priority, and he will keep his promise to protect our country and to ensure that our laws are respected,” she said in a statement.

“At the same time, the President continues to call on congressional Democrats to cease their staunch opposition to border security and to stop blocking measures that are vital to the safety and security of the United States,” she added.

Democrats do not care about the safety and security of the U.S.: they simply want to expand their voting base and the number of people who are beholden to the government.

  1. If they are caught “red handed” crossing the border, they should simply be returned across at the nearest crossing. No hearing or holding required.

    • Dana says:

      They should be simply returned across the nearest border crossing after a chip is implanted in their skulls which will alert ICE if they ever cross the border again.
