DHS: Officers Should Review Apprehended for Deportation Relief

Immigration and border officers' duties will soon include determining whether people they apprehend might qualify for relief from deportation under President Barack Obama's executive action. Instructions to Customs and Border Patrol and Immigration and Custom Enforcement on how to do so are included in training materials, The Associated Press reported. The materials tell agents "to immediately begin identifying persons in their custody, as well as newly encountered persons" who may be eligible for protection from deportation." The documents include a checklist of questions that can be asked, according to the AP.
