Trump Just Signed A Memo Ending Our Disastrous “Catch And Release” Policy

While the liberal media continues to freak out over everything Trump says or does, he just keeps plodding along and getting the job done for America. This week, Trump signed a memo which effectively ends the practice of catching and releasing illegal immigrants which has been horrible for the country.

Trump signs memo ordering end to ‘catch and release’ practices

President Trump signed a memorandum on Friday ordering agencies to “expeditiously end” the practice known as “catch and release” that allows immigrants caught in the U.S. without proper documents to be released from detention while their cases play out in court.

The memo signed by Trump orders the Department of Homeland Security, in coordination with other agencies, to submit a report to the president within 45 days “detailing all measures that their respective departments have pursued or are pursuing to expeditiously end ‘catch and release’ practices.”

The report instructs departments to share information on any contracts to construct or operate detention facilities along the border as well as steps taken to assign asylum officers at detention facilities, among other measures.

As part of the order, Trump is requesting “a detailed list of all existing facilities, including military facilities, that could be used, modified, or repurposed to detain aliens for violations of immigration law at or near the borders of the United States.”

This is fantastic news, even if the media chooses not to cover it that way. Trump is still putting America first.
