Government could shut down over U.S. immigration law reform

Immigration can often be considered a touchy subject for many California residents. Some individuals may believe that restrictions should be less strict, and others may think that even more stipulations must be placed on parties coming into the country. Because U.S. immigration law has been a hot topic as of late, many parties may be interested in a potential government shutdown in relation to immigration reform.

It was recently reported that, due to a lack of agreement on how to handle immigration reform, a government shutdown could be on the horizon. Democratic Congress members believe that individuals who were brought to the United States as children should still remain protected under certain immigration laws. However, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy was ended by President Trump.

Play By A New Set Of Rules

Immigration and Customs Enforcement has always been tough. In the past year, however, the agency has been behaving in a capricious and cruel manner, according to a report on HBO's VICE News Tonight.

Many immigrants report on a regular basis with ICE. These check-ins were normal, "a formality." Since the new presidential administration began, however, these routine meetings have become sources of high anxiety for many immigrants.
