John Kelly is making it clear to everyone that his agency is putting deportations at the top of their list.
Now Kelly is added that even smaller offenses, such as a DUI, would be grounds for deportation.
The fact is, illegals should not be here in the first place.
They criminally trespassed and once they are found, need to be swiftly sent back where they came from.
Anything less than that would be rewarding them for breaking the law.

In the past, Kelly suggested, it would have been “unlikely” for former President Barack Obama’s administration to deport someone for lower-level offenses. Most deportations have been centered on high-profile crimes such as rape and murder.
During an interview Sunday with NBC’s “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd, though, the secretary indicated that the threshold for deportation will be much lower under President Donald Trump.
“Can you give me an example of somebody that wasn’t deported before that you’re deporting now?” Todd asked.
Kelly responded, “Well, someone, as an example, with multiple DUIs — even a single DUI, depending on other aspects, would get you into the system.”
Moments before that exchange, the NBC host asked Kelly if the definition of a “criminal” is somehow different now from what it was under the Obama administration.
“It is fair to say the definition of ‘criminal’ has not changed,” Kelly said. “But where on the spectrum of criminality we operate has changed.”
