While thousands of people evacuating for safety due to dangerous, and tempestuous forecasted 125 mph., winds attributed to Hurricane Harvey 2017, evacuees will also be mandated to show proof of U.S. citizenship.  According to ICE agents, despite mother nature’s wrath, borders will ensure that there is no illegal entry.  According to the U.S. Border Patrol, “Border Patrol checkpoints that are outside of the path of the hurricane will remain operational, CBP will remain vigilant, against any effort by criminals to exploit disruptions caused by the storm.”

The Trump Administration is ensuring that those escaping the predicted hurricane which will affect Eastern Texas, must show citizenship.  However, there are many opponents; such as, the Civil Liberties Union director of Immigration policies.  In fact, Lorella Praeli, called this protocol, “disgusting” and added that color, or ethnicity should not be a factor when it pertains to saving lives; as a result, of catastrophic events.  There are reports according to MSN, in which interestingly, Hurricane Isaac in 2012, and Mathew in 2016; the “border patrol agency temporarily suspended its enforcement procedures.”
