The Department of Homeland Security has under review over 300,000 naturalized citizens for possible deportation back to their home countries because of possible fraud during the time they applied for green cards. Those who are caught up in the criminal justice system are now under extra scrutiny for possible denaturalization and deportation. Operation Janus has the blessing of the current administration to find those who applied for such government programs such as food stamps and Obamacare. Identity theft in order to obtain work is another way they will be tracked down and deported. Beginning in 2020 the Census Department will ask on the form if the person is a citizen or legal resident of the United States. The last time this question was asked was in 1950.
Racial profiling is now being used by law enforcement to carry out the order of the Trump administration’s Operation Janus and people of color, as usual, will feel the brunt of this new directive. ICE continues to ramp up its activities by now going onto courthouses around the country to find those who have traffic tickets or any kind of civil matters that bring people in front a judge. The writing is on the wall for all of those who desire the gift of citizenship but instead are being shown the exit door instead.
