Opinion: Time to Exert Executive Power Over Deportations

During his State of the Union address this year, President Obama said, “It is time to heed the call of business leaders, labor leaders, faith leaders, law enforcement–and fix our broken immigration system.” In the same speech, the president emphasized his executive power to take action when Congress will not. But Congress is threatening another impasse on immigration. And while Capitol Hill plays politics, Obama refuses to use his executive authority to halt the deportation of more than 1,100 immigrants per day.

Protestors form human chain to block deportations

Immigrant rights supporters in Austin locked themselves arm-in-arm, mind forming a chain in front of the Travis County Jail Monday morning to stop the deportation of illegal immigrants.

The protestors are blocking the exit authorities used to transfer captured illegal immigrants to the Federal Building where they are held for Immigration and Customs Enforcement under the Se Communities program.

Six people have been arrested.

According to data from the Department of Homeland Security, the majority of immigrants deported from Travis County were not convicted of serious crimes.

A 2013 report from the Texas Commission on jail standards said the cost for holding an immigrant in the Travis County jail is $106.05 dollars per day.
