DHS secretary signs new guidelines for dealing with illegal immigrants

It’s reported that “Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly has signed new guidelines allowing federal authorities to more aggressively detain and deport illegal immigrants.”

Accordingly, “the agency plans to hire thousands of additional enforcement agents, expand the pool of illegals prioritized for removal, speed up deportation hearings and enlist local law enforcement to help make arrests.”

The Kelly guidelines stated that the “surge of immigration at the southern border has overwhelmed federal agencies and resources and has created a significant national security vulnerability to the United States.”
