On January 26, President Trump signed two Executive Orders cracking down on immigrants. The orders pave the way for draconian policing of immigrants, including a return to “Secure Communities”, detaining people who are caught crossing the border, punishing sanctuary cities, and building a wall between the United States and Mexico. Read the orders: Border Security & Immigration Enforcement and Enhancing Security in the Interior of the United States.
