Federal Prosecutors Using New Technique on Deportations
The White House is continuing their hard-line stance on deportations. Migrants arrested for small crimes are now being asked to sign plea deals that include language stating that they don't face torture back home, which affirms that they're not worried about being submitted to torture in their home country. Texas immigration attorneys argue that this practice could affect bids for asylum.
The justice department is defending the strategy, citing it as a way to increase efficiency and save Americans tax dollars.
