Homeland Security Changing Enforcement of Crimes by Undocumented Immigrants, Secretary Kelly says

Homeland Security Changing Enforcement of Crimes by Undocumented Immigrants, Secretary Kelly says

Kelly didn't exactly ask for nationwide marijuana legalization, but anyone in the the Trump administration speaking about rehabilitation before law enforcement with regards to the war on drugs is an improvement worth noting.

'Someone, as an example, with multiple DUIs [could face deportation],' he told NBC News's Meet the Press. He is expected to pursue harsher punishments for using and distributing marijuana, which were relaxed under President Trump's predecessor, as The Washington Post's Sari Horowitz has reported.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly made it clear Sunday that his agency has no plans to shy away from arresting or deporting illegal immigrants.

'It is fair to say that the definition of criminal has not changed, but where on the spectrum of criminality we operate has changed, ' Kelly replied. "That number, as high as it is, says nothing about the long-term health damage to our citizens who survive", Kelly told the audience.

Notably, last Thursday Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's government introduced legislation to let adult possess up to 30 grams of marijuana in public, a measure that would make Canada the largest developed country to end a nationwide prohibition on recreational marijuana (RM). "There are people who came here as children". And that is to execute and uphold the nation's laws.

According to Kelly, the FBI now has open terrorism investigations in all 50 states, and since 2013, there have been 37 ISIS-linked plots to attack the US.

"The future we worry about every single day is how do we spot and stop them as they flow out, bent on continuing the global jihad by taking the fight to innocent people?" he said. And for members of Congress who don't like the laws, Kelly said they "should have the courage and skill to change the laws".

Kelly said stepped-up enforcement has had a dramatic effect. Polygraph tests "take a long time" and are "expensive", Kelly said. The backgrounds of potential DHS agents is "vetted extensively", he said. Some 94 militants were killed in the strike, an Afghan official said Saturday.

Democrats on the Senate Homeland Security committee released a report estimating that Trump's proposed border wall could cost $70 billion to build. Kelly has estimated its price tag at $21 billion, while congressional Republicans have put the cost at $12 billion to $15 billion.

"It was created to do what it was dropped on", he said, pointing to the bunker and tunnel complex targeted in a remote part of the country.

Kelly's interview was conducted before a failed ballistic missile launch from North Korea on Sunday.
