President Trump intends to publish a weekly list of crimes committed by immigrants as part of sweeping immigration enforcement.
The Independent is reporting The US President’s sweeping new executive order on immigration, which he signed on the fifth day of his presidency, includes a paragraph mandating the Secretary for Homeland Security to “make public a comprehensive list of criminal actions committed by aliens” in the US.
The Executive Order reads as follows:
“To better inform the public regarding the public safety threats associated with sanctuary jurisdictions, the Secretary shall utilize the Declined Detainer Outcome Report or its equivalent and, on a weekly basis, make public a comprehensive list of criminal actions committed by aliens and any jurisdiction that ignored or otherwise failed to honor any detainers with respect to such aliens.”
It does not specify that only crimes committed by illegal immigrants should be included – raising the prospect of offences committed by any immigrant being published even if the person is living in the US legally. Read more from the Independendent UK.
Wow! Now Trump appears to be moving in the direction of trampling on the rights of citizens living legally within the United States. Are we all not entitled to a right of privacy.
