Trump Administration Weighs Executive Action to Limit Immigration


CNN reports that, even as the Trump administration is asking Congress to approve a tough overhaul of the nation's immigration laws, the Department of Homeland Security is exploring ways it could transform the U.S. immigration system on its own.

The department has been examining a range of changes to immigration policies that could have major consequences, including limiting protections for unaccompanied minors who unlawfully come to the United States, expanding the use of speedy deportation proceedings, and tightening visa programs in ways that could limit legal immigration to the US, according to multiple sources familiar with the plans.
None of the policies being explored are finalized, according to the sources. Some of them are also included at least in part in the wish list of immigration priorities that President Donald Trump sent to Congress this week.
