GOOD TRUMP: President Trump ‘Abolished’ Obama-era Deportation Postponement for Illegal Aliens

The Trump Administration has essentially “abolished” the practice of deferring deportations for illegal aliens in immigration court, a new report claims.
A new study by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) finds that under Trump’s immigration orders, attorneys with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) are no longer asking for prosecutorial discretion when it comes to deporting illegal aliens.
Prosecutorial discretion disclosures have been used to enact lax immigration decisions where only illegal aliens who have committed violent crimes are prioritized for deportation. Likewise, deferment of deportation for illegal aliens was a common practice during the Obama Administration.
In the first five months of the Trump presidency, there have been less than 100 illegal aliens per month being given prosecutorial discretion disclosures, according to the study. This is a sharp decline from the same first five months of 2016, under Obama, when 2,400 illegal aliens per month were given discretion.
