DHS Sec. Kelly On Rape Victim Deportation Fears: '911 Process Is Anonymous, If You Want It To Be'
DHS Secretary John Kelly tells CNN's Dana Bash that women who are worried about being deported after reporting sexual assault shouldn't be because his department isn't targeting Dreamers for deportation, and that the "911 process is anonymous, if you want it to be."
Bash asked Kelly about recent criticism from the Los Angeles Chief of Police that reports of rape and domestic violence are way down among Hispanics, and here was his response:
BASH: Well, let's talk about some of those problems, and one of them is the question of what to do about the young immigrants known as Dreamers. The president told the Associated Press on Friday that people who were brought to this country to the U.S. illegally, as children, should "rest easy" about his immigration policy, and yet Attorney General Jeff Sessions had this to say. Take a listen.
SESSIONS: Everybody in the country illegally is subject to being deported. So people come here and they stay here a few years and somehow they think they're not subject to being deported. Well, they are.
BASH: So Secretary Kelly, which is it? Are these Dreamers subject to being deported or should they rest easy, as the president said?
