DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen recently stated that if a DACA deal isn’t reached, ICE has no intentions to target DREAMers more so than other illegals.
Nielsen claims, “It’s not going to be a priority of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement to prioritize their removal. I’ve said that before. That’s not the policy of DHS.”
“If you are a DACA [recipient] that’s compliant with your registration, meaning you haven’t committed a crime, you in fact are registered, you’re not a priority of enforcement for ICE should the program end.”
