Federal Judge Ketanji Borwn Jackson has put a halt on the Trump administration’s agenda to detain and deport illegal immigrants this past Friday September 27th, 2019*. DHS can no longer expedite removals of families that are unable to prove that they have been continuously residing in the United States for two years or more. This was set in place to reduce the number of deportations that would have occurred without a judge’s hearing.
