IMMIGRATION/MEXICO: “Almost everybody living in the U.S. illegally is now subject to deportation, and more undocumented arrivals at the southern border will be jailed or sent back to Mexico to await a hearing rather than released into the U.S., under memos issued Tuesday [2-21-17] by the Department of Homeland Security…
Under former President Barack Obama’s administration, undocumented immigrants who didn’t fall into one of the administration’s priority groups were generally safe from deportation.

Under the new Trump policies, officials said Tuesday [2-21-17], anybody in the U.S. illegally is subject to deportation at any time.”
