Since it was announced on Thursday, August 18th the new policy memo, which only impacts
the 300,000 people in proceedings before the Immigration Courts, has generated a lot
of attention. I’m here to report that as of this morning the new memo is being treated
by the Trial Attorneys (Immigration prosecutors who work for the Department of Home-
Land Security or DHS) as business as usual. Meaning that until they get “guidance” they
are not treating this as anything new. Stay tuned as there is sure to be a lot of differing
opinions about this.
