So-called "dreamers" were anxious about potentially being deported under Donald Trump's immigration crackdown. The White House has ordered a 10,000-official recruitment process, expanding detention centers and setting up a new ICE office to assist the family members of those citizens who die for undocumented foreigners.
The new rules also call for Customs and Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to remove illegal immigrants they encounter - with a special emphasis on removing those who have committed additional crimes while in the US. To achieve this, the Trump administration will authorize a broader use of the existing "expedited removal" procedures, greatly reducing the need for court proceedings.
The guidelines outlined by the Trump administration, however, do expand the number of undocumented immigrants who are subject to deportation.
The Homeland Security Department memos, signed by Secretary John Kelly, lay out that any immigrant living in the United States illegally who has been charged or convicted of any crime - and even those suspected of a crime - will now be an enforcement priority.
There are an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S.
Montreal is Canada's most congested city; LA leads the world

That's linked to the idea that Greek actor Alex Malao would be playing the next hero after he listed Overwatch on his CV. Kaplan pointed out how the portrayal of Iraq in video games is usually one of war-torn streets and bombed out buildings.
Britain defends Trump visit despite protests
Interrupting proceedings , the SNP's Alex Salmond claimed that he was "having difficulty hearing" because of the protests . A 2015 state visit by Chinese President Xi Jinping drew protests from Tibetan groups and human rights activists.
Nevertheless, the memos will likely continue to provoke fear in immigrant communities of a vast expansion of the government's use of its immigration enforcement powers to potentially deport undocumented immigrants who have lived in their communities for years, and may have family members who are legal United States residents or citizens. The memos seek to end that practice, known as "catch and release", by ordering the construction of more jails along the southwest border to house detained immigrants until their cases are resolved.
These two memos provide explicit guidance to DHS staff on how to carry out two executive orders signed by the President on January 25th- one dealing with interior enforcement and one with border security.
But the plan leaves in place Obama-era protections for immigrants who entered the U.S. illegally as children.
Mr Trump's immigration policies have prompted protests on both sides of the border. This memo indicates a radical departure from that norm, opening up the basis for removal from the U.S.to pretty much anyone. Tens of thousands of people took to the streets in more than a dozen Mexican cities last week to protest against the new president's plan for a border wall.
