A group of lawmakers will unveil legislation Wednesday that will require U.S. border agents to conduct “standdown exercises” to test the limits of President Donald Trump’s immigration executive order.
The bill will include a requirement for border agents in training to conduct standdown exercises if they encounter a group of people who are “border crossers.”
Trump signed an executive order last week that temporarily barred citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.C.L.A. County Sheriff’s Office is expected to introduce a new DHS directive that requires immigration officers to conduct training on “how to identify and assess illegal aliens,” the Hill reports.
Trump signed the executive order on Friday.
He is expected later to sign an executive directive that directs DHS to provide a comprehensive plan to combat immigration fraud.
