Married Immigrants Seeking Green Cards Are Now Targets for Deportation
By Noah Lanard

Immigrants without criminal records had little risk of being arrested in the later years of the Obama administration. ICE is now deporting undocumented immigrants regardless of how long they have been in the United States and whether they have followed US laws. The Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a nonpartisan research center, reported on Thursday that 43 percent of new cases brought by the Department of Homeland Security in immigration court last month involved people who had been in the United States for at least two years, compared with 6 percent of cases in December 2016.
