New Immigration Enforcement Guidelines Focus On Threats To Public Safety

“This new guidance memo falls short of the Biden administration’s commitments and promises to create a fair and humane immigration system,” said Yaritza Méndez with the advocacy group Make the Road New York.

“Left to use their own discretion, agencies like ICE have an alarming history of terrorizing, detaining and separating communities. We cannot continue to build on a system that inflicts harm on our immigrant communities,” Méndez said in a statement.
