The New ICE Age: An Agency Unleashed

Tina Vasquez

Trump is giving ICE the tools, financial resources, and presidential backing to go after immigrant communities as never before. While John Kelly and Stephen Miller may be the main architects of Trump’s nativist anti-immigration policy, they are not its most important and powerful supporters. For that, look to the labor union that represents ICE’s agents.

What Is Deferred Enforced Departure? It’s Complicated.

Tina Vasquez

"When someone's whole life has been built here—they've created a family, started a business, become a reliable employee, bought a home—no one gains by disrupting these lives and communities by ending their status and providing no way for them to adjust their status and lawfully remain in the U.S. This is very much tragic for America."
