On Thursday, August 18th, the Obama Administration announced new changes to its immigration enforcement and deportation policies. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that the new changes will help focus resources on deporting “high priority” individuals over “low priority” individuals that are “clogging” the system. The changes come after much pressure from immigrant rights advocates like ICAN, who have denounced the President for not delivering on his promise of immigration reform and for focusing efforts on deporting immigrants that are not threat to the country.
