AILA Video: The Trump Administration's Deportation Machine

VIDEO: American Immigration Lawyers Association's (AILA) Kate Voigt previews AILA's new report, Cogs in the Deportation Machine, which surveys policy changes to immigration enforcement made by the Trump administration.

Since President Trump has taken office, every day brings a new immigration nightmare: reports of undocumented families broken apart, Dreamers apprehended, and asylum seekers held in detention. Each of these stories is deeply troubling and cries out for greater attention, but there are so many that it is overwhelming and impossible to keep track of what has happened in each case.  There is barely time to evaluate how dramatically the enforcement of immigration laws has changed in a single year.

A new report released by AILA, Cogs in the Deportation Machine, surveys these changes in immigration enforcement and brings into focus how the administration has marshalled the many tools of enforcement into an incredibly powerful deportation machine.  Contrary to the administration’s public claims that it is concentrating on threats to national security and public safety, the report shows that the administration has gone to great lengths to deport as many people as possible, as quickly as possible, with little regard for the financial cost or the impact upon American communities.
