While I was gone, the Department of Homeland Security decided to scrap “Operation Scheduled Departure”. The Program was cancelled after three weeks and $41,000 of taxpayer money.
8 people were said to have participated in the doomed program.
Why it took even this long for ICE to figure it out is a testament to the fact of how out of touch Washington is with the reality, NOT of immigration enforcement, but the reasons why undocumented immigrants continue to stay here and continue to come to the United States.
Let’s hope this doesn’t embolden even more enforcement only measures (as though it could get worse).
