USA-Mexico Border: Immigration Enforcement

The attached video is from my live broadcast at the border wall between the U.S. and Mexico on April 23.2017. This Houston immigration lawyer discusses immigration enforcement and some changes under the Trump administration.

In particular, I discuss the fact that Homeland Security and ICE have said that they plan to arrest and detain anyone who is out of status, even if they have a case pending or an extension pending. While they claim that such cases are not a priority, they have said that if they come across such individuals they will be arrested and detained. Moreover, from my own experience and those of my colleagues, we have observed that ICE is not granting bonds to those detained. That means that such detained individuals will sit in immigration jail for 2-4 weeks, or longer, until a judge sets bond.
