Immigration Enforcement: Immigration Policies and Trump Administration

immigration enforcement: The laws instead appeared to be a message from the state that it didn't want to participate in federal immigration policies, U.S. Judge John Mendez said, according to The Chronicle Herald. We're not going along anymore, we're not participating, he said about how he read the state's motives. A U.S. judge said Wednesday that he was not convinced California enacted protections for immigrants in the country illegally in an effort to interfere with federal immigration enforcement potentially undercutting a key argument by the Trump administration in its lawsuit seeking to block three state laws. Outside the courthouse in California's capital city, scores of people protested U.S. immigration policies. President Donald Trump signed an executive order Wednesday ending the separations but not the policy that prosecutes all adults caught crossing illegally. Some carried signs that said Keep Families Together and Family Separation is UnAmerican, referring to the administration's zero tolerance policy on illegal border crossings that has separated children from their families.
