Enforcement of U.S. immigration law is often a contentious and emotional issue. It is clear, however, that no matter what kind of legal immigration system the United States puts in place, the U.S. government will be responsible for admitting legal immigrants and stopping illegal ones. Due to long-term government failures to faithfully carry out this responsibility, the United States currently finds itself with a population of between 11 and 12 million immigrants illegally present in the country. If the U.S. is to improve its immigration system, immigration laws must be effectively enforced to remove illegal immigrants and deter future illegal immigration.
Join us for a discussion of the important ways immigration enforcement can be strengthened as well as a keynote address by Acting Director of ICE Thomas Homan, a 34-year veteran of law enforcement, to hear what the Trump Administration is doing in this area.
