Are major policy changes coming to U.S. deportation priorities?

As we've discussed on our blog before, President Barack Obama is currently facing intense criticism from multiple immigrant advocacy groups over the nearly two million deportations that have taken place during his time in office.

Advocates call for changes to U.S. deportation policies

The "Blue Ribbon Commission," an immigrant advocacy group made up of both documented and undocumented immigrants, and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus have both recently made recommendations to President Obama regarding U.S. immigration law. The Commission's recommendations are sweeping, calling on the federal government to reduce the nation's deportation rate as a whole, end immigration enforcement programs like "Secure Communities," reassign control over immigrant detention centers away from private security firms, and to reassess key trade agreements that encourage economic development at the cost of displacing immigrant communities. 

Teen convicted of selling pot brownies may be deported

While most parents with teenagers probably don't want to think about it, there's a very good chance that their kids will pull some pranks or engage in other types of high jinks during their high school years. While most of this conduct is relatively harmless, there are times when the line between mischief and crime can perhaps become blurred.
