Deportation for Illegals Stopped for Traffic Violations to Decrease

Posted By || May 29, 2012

Department of Homeland Security officials said in a statement on Friday April 27, 2012 that fewer illegal immigrants who are stopped by officers for minor traffic violations will be held for deportation due to changes announced. There are changes that have been made in the policy on how federal agents will handle illegal immigrants arrested by state and local police for traffic violations such as driving without a license. One of the key recommendations of a task force on the federal program is that the program called Secure Communities should avoid deportations of traffic violators.

This can be a very major issue in today's society. There are many people who are in the United States potentially illegally, and not being deported for a traffic violation could elongate their stay so that whatever issues must be resolved can be resolved. There are many reasons why an individual could be here illegally, some of which include negligence as to when a visa expires for example. It is important that those who are trying to obtain a permanent residence visa have the opportunity. While deportation is necessary for some, there are others who are legitimately striving to become permanent residents.
