AG HEALEY STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT TRUMP’S NEW DEPORTATION DIRECTIVES

AG HEALEY STATEMENT ON PRESIDENT TRUMP’S NEW DEPORTATION DIRECTIVES

BOSTON – Attorney General Maura Healey today issued the following statement in response to the new deportation directives released by the Trump Administration:
“President Trump’s reckless mass deportation scheme will make our communities less safe and waste billions of taxpayer dollars. Under the previous administration, federal agents prioritized the deportation of dangerous criminals. Now the Trump Administration wants federal, state, and local law enforcement officers to abandon smart policing strategies and instead arrest and rush to deport millions of people, including immigrants with no criminal background and parents raising young children.  As Attorney General, I know the importance of maintaining trust in immigrant communities, and the human toll when people are forced into the shadows. I urge the President to reconsider this wrongheaded policy and pursue comprehensive immigration reform rather than eroding the public’s trust and spreading fear and chaos in our communities.”
