Immigration law has been point of contention for some time

In the modern era, the United States, including the state of New York, is experiencing a wide range of phenomena, including economic inequality, technological revolution and rapid globalization. Still, one of the biggest ones is the huge influx of people coming to the country from around the world. However, not everyone is on the same page when it comes to immigration law.

Immigration law officials planning to increase number of jails

The government is planning to boost the number of federal immigration jails throughout the country, which may impact immigrants in New York who lack the proper paperwork. This is being done so that the government can hold the thousands of extra immigrants being arrested by agents. It is all part of federal immigration law efforts aimed at curbing the influx of immigrants who do not have the necessary paperwork.

Several in New York arrested as part of ICE immigration law raid

However, according to the Department of Homeland Security, this move is actually nothing new.
