    2021.09.30 Guidelines for the Enforcement of Civil Immigration Law

    This Biden administration policy revokes and modifies the Trump-era policy identified in this entry.

    On September 30, 2021, Secretary Mayorkas issued a memorandum explaining that ICE should use prosecutorial discretion to focus its enforcement on individuals who pose a threat to national security, public safety, and border security. The memo contextualizes this prioritization with data and analysis about the undocumented population within the U.S., the executive's discretion in this area, and the need to protect against civil rights and civil liberties abuses.

    This guidance will go into effect on November 29, 2021.
