Immigration Enforcement Intensifies: Updates on Removals and Enforcement Initiatives
By: Harlan York
August 9, 2010

As part of the Administration’s effort to remake the enforcement of immigration laws, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) have aggressively stepped up various enforcement activities, including a 10 percent increase in deportations (400,000 people are expected to be deported in 2010), a quadrupling of employer’s audits from 2008 to 2010, the use of fingerprinting of people in custody to identify deportable immigrants through the expanded Secure Communities Project, and the deployment of some 1,200 National Guard troops to the southwest border.
