In multiple reports, both former heads of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the current president of the National Association of Immigration Judges have questioned the legality of some President Trump's desire to expand the 'expedited removals' policy. Under the current policy, ICE can deport illegal immigrants within 100 miles of the U.S. border who are alleged to have entered the country in the last two weeks. Used only in obvious cases, these 'expedited removals' allow ICE to deport immigrants without allowing them to face a judge. Currently, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly wants to expand this policy to anywhere in the U.S. for immigrants who have entered the country in the last two years.
Verdict: The Supreme Court has stated multiple times that even undocumented immigrants have a right to due process, and this expansion will put that right into question. Even if the expansion of 'expedited removals' happens, ICE officials are already struggling with the current workload, so it will be interesting to see if they can even handle the increased duties. It is likely that whatever the language of the new Executive Order that President Trump releases is, there will be a quick and loud response from protesters.
