The Administration’s original policy changes, detailed in memos from ICE Director John Morton and DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano in the summer of 2011, involved an unprecedented review of hundreds of thousands of pending deportation cases. The Department pledged to close the cases of individuals who didn’t meet their enforcement “priorities.”
The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Unfortunately, a year has passed since the policy was announced, and very little has changed. In some cases, the situation has even gotten worse. In an NPR interview over the weekend, ICE director John Morton made the hollow case that ICE has succeeded in focusing deportations on serious criminals and claimed that “people who’ve been here for a very long period of time and have no criminal record and are removed from the United States is, in fact, quite rare. Those people are not our priority and we don’t seek to remove them in large numbers.”

According to Angelica Salas, Executive Director, Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles, “Our patience has been exhausted. The Obama Administration has to ensure that DHS implement prosecutorial discretion with the full intent and spirit of the policy. DHS has to act otherwise we will conclude that the lack of implementation is purposeful and in direct contradiction to the original June 17, 2011 discretion memo.”
