Trump Signs Memo Ordering End to ‘Catch and Release’ Immigration Policy

President Trump issued a memorandum on Friday directing his administration to move quickly to bring an end to “catch and release,” the practice by which immigrants presenting themselves at the border without authorization are released from detention while waiting for their cases to be processed.

The directive does not, on its own, toughen immigration policy or take concrete steps to do so; it merely directs officials to report to the president about steps they are taking to “expeditiously end ‘catch and release’ practices.” But it is a symbolic move by Mr. Trump to use his executive action to solve a problem that he has bitterly complained Congress will not.

It also caps a week that began with the president offering tough talk on immigration and ended with his ordering the National Guard to patrol the southwestern border, a move formalized on Friday night when Defense Secretary Jim Mattis signed orders to deploy up to 4,000 troops.

“The safety and security of the American people is the president’s highest priority, and he will keep his promise to protect our country and to ensure that our laws are respected,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, said in a statement announcing the memorandum.

“At the same time, the president continues to call on congressional Democrats to cease their staunch opposition to border security and to stop blocking measures that are vital to the safety and security of the United States,” she added.

My SJW wife says this is a racist comment injuring fish in every border stream.
And I tend to agree...

Do we have a border or don't we?

Do we have laws or don't we?

If we have a border, we should protect it well.

If we have laws, we should enforce them well.

Everything is intertwined.

The FISA request being shared with Congress by DOJ, is the flip side of the coin. This means OIG Horowitz already has gathered all the info, there's no way they'd allow this to happen, given all the leaking that's about to take place, without taking care of that first. ALL of Stzronk's, Page's, etc. emails and texts. Probably Yates and McCabe, too.

How can Democrats fulminate against enforcing the border and immigration laws, while at the same time trying to excuse the Fusion GPS-FBI Scandal?

BTW, I read some of Strzonk's texts, he talks about briefing for a meeting re: Investigating Trump with WH officials. Remember that Obama went on TV and swore he did not get involved with FBI investigations like the "serendipitous" Tarmac meeting between Hillary's Husband and DOJ Lynch? It looks like to the contrary, there were regular meetings.
