President Donald Trump in his growing list of executive orders issued this week has asked another federal agency to boost its staff as part of his immigration reform plan.
Executive order, “Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States,” released on Jan. 25 adds 10,000 immigration officers to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement workforce.
The goal is to “ensure the public safety of the American people in communities across the United States as well as to ensure that our nation's immigration laws are faithfully executed,” the president wrote in the order.
Relevant training and the ability to perform certain law enforcement functions was also urged.
