Mr. Yale-Loehr was quoted by Reuters in “U.S. to Expand Rapid Deportation Nationwide With Sweeping New Rule.”
Mr. Yale-Loehr said the new policy will create chaos and fear in immigrant communities and could have unintended consequences. “U.S. citizens could be expeditiously removed by error. You don’t have a lot of room to challenge that. You can’t go before an immigration judge,” he noted.
Mr. Yale-Loehr was quoted in several other media outlets about the expansion of expedited removal:
- New York Times: “Trump Administration Expands Fast-Tracked Deportations for Undocumented Immigrants“
- Law360: “DHS Vastly Expands Deportation Authority“
Mr. Yale-Loehr was quoted by Tampa Bay Times in “Despite Trump’s Claims, ICE Is Arresting Way More Immigrants Without Criminal Records—Especially in Florida.”
Immigration enforcement agents can now “round up anybody they could find, whether they had a criminal conviction or not,” he noted.
