Voices in the Street – Speeding Up Deportations

And now, President Trump has aspirations to deport even more people. Documents released by the Department of Homeland Security this week revealed Trump’s plans to enlist local police officers as immigration enforcers, erect new detention facilities, discourage asylum seekers and ultimately, speed up deportations.
