Executive Order on Immigration

Executive Order on Immigration

What does this mean? Is this what the President had in mind with the Executive Order on immigration? Will sending Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos, a mom who has been in the U.S. since she was 14, now 36 and the mother of 2 American teenagers, back to Mexico make America great again and/or safer????

Please read the story and have compassion for her, her children and husband: http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2017/02/arizona-mom-may-be-facing-deportation-due-to-trump-order.html

Please take a few minutes and read the Executive Order recently signed by our President on immigration, below. I don’t want your opinion of whether you think it is right or wrong. I want you to read the words and give your opinion of what IT MEANS. Feel free to fact check it and make sure this is the actual Executive Order.

This not the Travel Ban, this involves the roughly 11,000,000 people that may be living in the U.S. as undocumented. Maybe they came here as students and overstayed a visa, came to visit and didn’t leave, or risked their life crossing a border. Would love to get your thoughts on what it is saying. Perhaps as an attorney, I am reading this wrong and too broadly. I believe it is saying that any of the roughly 11,000,000 illegal immigrants in the U.S. can be deported if caught and NOT just those with criminal records…

Here’s the link to the official (I think) text of the Executive Order – https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2017/01/25/executive-order-border-security-and-immigration-enforcement-improvements

What do you think it says?

Although, it would be impractical and difficult to imagine rounding up 11,000,000 people, my mind goes back to the Holocaust. If in the 1940’s they could displace, deport and kill roughly 11,000,000 people what could be done today??? Is Guadalupe Garcia de Rayos, the mom mentioned above the start of thing to come? I sure hope not.
